Everything manufactured today is subtractive, taking away from our natural resources to overproduce. With additive footwear, you have a world where we can conserve the environment while creating the bold and exciting. We’re introducing a radically new and sustainable way to make shoes that blends artistry with performance.
Our approach is a combination of digital design, 3D printing, and hand craftsmanship. Every pair of HILOS starts its life from the same digital model able to evolve into endless variations. Each one ends totally unique, as a personalized, perfect fit. Additive footwear allows for this level of customization without the wait, reimagining how shoes are made and creating a whole new world for design.
Everything we make is 100% recyclable and designed for disassembly. Our 3D-printing sets a new standard for the industry, saving over 1700 gallons of water per pair and enabling zero-waste production.
With additive footwear, HILOS is bringing you a new way to shop and the industry a new way to make.
