The Self-Repairing 3D Printed Running Shoe of the Future

 Wearable Futures London designer and researcher Shamees Aden is developing a concept for running shoes that would be 3D-printed from synthetic biological material and could repair themselves overnight.

The shoes, which he’s developing with University of Southern Denmark professor Martin Hanczyc, are 3D printed from a synthetic biological material that can repair itself overnight. The trainer would be printed to the exact size of the user’s foot, meaning it would essentially work like a second skin, reacting to the pressures of running and padding areas when needed.
