3D printed shoes

3D printers are pretty awesome tools for prototyping objects. Now some people are also using hem to make shoes. People who like going clubbing with yellow skinpaint, apparently.

Goofy shot aside, it's an interesting use since you can customize the shoe for your foot perfectly, but the look of something that's 3D printed will likely get old quickly.

 I've seen a person standing on a 3d printed model but I wouldn't recomend this as a production solution.

The price of RP won't out weight the benefit of form fitted shoes, those heels probably cost about $800. (assuming SLS Polyamide, what it looks like)

On the side: you can print with the 3d printer then cast with metal so strength wouldn't be an issue . . . only weight

No shot of them being walked in?

Cool as they look, what kind of plastic are they printed from?  How strong is it?

Wikipedia says SLS can be used on polymers, including nylon and polystyrene.
