From WeTheUrban: “At the Wearable Futures conference, London designer and researcher Shamees Aden debuted a running shoe concept that will put your worn out kicks to shame.

The shoes, which he’s developing with University of Southern Denmark professor Martin Hanczyc, are 3D printed from a synthetic biological material that can repair itself overnight.

The trainer would be printed to the exact size of the user’s foot, meaning it would essentially work like a second skin, reacting to the pressures of running and padding areas when needed.
