Movie: the making of Electric Light Shoe by Freedom of Creation


Dutch designer Freedom of Creation have sent us a short movie showing the making of Electric Light Shoe, the giant, rapid-prototyped, illuminated trainer containing a miniature city that they designed for footwear brand Onitsuka Tiger (see our earlier story).

The movie shows how the metre-long shoe was designed on a computer, then manufactured piece by piece on a selective laser sintering machine. More info on this project here.

    Very cool. The shoe always looked like a render to me in the original post, so it’s nice to see it in the flesh.

    i am looking down and immagine my own O. Tiger shoes (by Arne) to start grooving, lighting up and maybe they house much more than the usual two “good old” feet packaged in plain socks
