In this Instructable I will take you through the process I used to design, model, and print a sneaker. This was the final project for my Product Design class, and it took a long time and a lot of hard work. So this is not a weekend project, this will take you awhile. But the effort is totally worth it. The satisfaction you'll get from creating something from nothing, and then being able to put that something to use is unparalleled. I'm not going to go through every step I took to create my specific design, because I don't remember every step I took, and because the whole point of this is to design your own sneaker or shoe. Most of this work is on you. I will not teach you how to use the modeling software, but I will give you some tips. I'm here as a helpful guide along the way, giving tips and suggestions. I'm sharing my experience with the hope that you will be able to learn from it and build upon it. So, let's get started!
