Given that the iPhone pictured is likely a 4S, you’ll correctly surmise that the above product isn’t exactly new. In fact, the iPhone Mashup Shoe by Alan Nguyen was created some time in 2012 and exhibited at the Milan Design Week in 2012 and the Maison et Objet show in Paris, again in 2012. But it doesn’t matter, since we’re pretty sure that a good number of you guys haven’t seen it and as impractical as the actual shoe is (who wants to bend down to their feet just to answer the phone?), we think it’s a great example of the kind of things 3D printers are capable of. The shoes were commissioned by Freedom Of Creation for FreshFiber, a company that makes “personalized 3D accessories.”
There isn’t whole lot more to say about them. We’re not sure you can even buy them, but you can hit the jump and look at two more pictures, and links.
