Midsole Experiments | Michael Weyrauch

Following my post yesterday pretty perfectly are these super innovative midsole experiments by Michael Weyrauch.

Using a laser sintered substructure and essentially filling the gaps in-between with a poured PU, Michael is doing the type of experimentation that I think could really bring some great new elements to both the form & function of our footwear. Not to mention, giving current limitations in 3D printing and laser sintering, this would be the absolute best compromise i’ve seen to date that would allow a footwear company to be able to scale production of a shoe developed this way (incase you were wondering why you haven’t been able to buy any 3D printed soccer cleats…it just isn’t viable..yet).

The future for tech like this in undeniably exciting, and its experiments like this that will help us realise that potential sooner rather than later. Props to you Michael.
