HILOS is introducing a radically new way to make shoes that blends artistry with performance. We combine the traditional insole, midsole, and outsole of a shoe into a single 3D-printed platform that embodies the performance requirements of each of these layers within a complete construction.
Inset into the platform is a woven mesh of lattice that acts as a dynamic form of supportive cushion made from BASF's new Ultrasint material. The end result is a soft, springy footbed with a flexible platform that cradles each step.
HILOS is changing the way we make by blending tech and hand, utilizing additive manufacturing to solve for pressing design and environmental issues while elevating the craft that humanizes our products to make them staple treasures.
