3DShoes.com is laser-focused on disrupting the traditional shoe industry. Today we hear estimates that over 100 people are needed to make a pair of shoes and most countries produce less than 1% of the shoes they wear in their homeland. Also, to make a pair of shoes today the environmental damage in making a couple billion pairs a year is staggering.
3D now entering the Shoes Industry will help to reverse this. We are already beginning to see the cracks of localized and even home production of shoes in the news, at events, and now on customer’s feet. 3D will ignite new creative designs, that will ultimately lead to distrust the model of shoe production as we know it.
3DShoes.com goals are also ambitious. We are working towards a globally recognized 3D Shoes platform with research, insights, and data. To date, we see digital designs downloaded and printed in United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Russia, South Africa, Kenya, Dominican Republic, Columbia, Brazil, Ecuador, Australia, New Zealand, China, Japan, Philippines, Thailand, and India.
Access has also been a key issue to print digital designs, and with firms such as www.3DHubs.com providing over one billion people with access to a 3D Printable Product within 10 miles of their home, 3D goals are becoming closer than ever. 3D Micro Factories of the future with printing capabilities will expand 3D Shoe prints globally. 3D coupled with Machine learning is helping bring back careers that were considered lost to lower-priced labor which has been an issue recognized globally for decades. With 3D the shoe industry now has a new journey and 3DSHOES is one excited company to help it unfold.
