Last year, Chinese company Peak unveiled the first 3D printed basketball shoe for Dwight Howard. A year later, Lou Williams and George Hill debuted the newest iteration of Peak’s groundbreaking technology: a 3D printed lattice structure that looks exactly like the Venom symbiote.
This latest technology from Peak has some unique properties, as you can see in the video below by Will Wong, a Peak designer (@thevvvn). It seems resilient, springs right back into its original shape after force is exerted on it, and creates one hell of a midsole.
This technology has already been implemented in the shoe pictured here, which Peak endorsers Lou Williams (Sixth Man of the Year 2018) and George Hill were spotted in on stage at a Peak promotional event in Hangzhou, China. At this stage, the shoe features a stunning one-piece knit upper with support tendrils that branch off the midsole.
According to Will Wong, there is no release date yet for this shoe as some aspects of it have to be adjusted.
Let us know what you think about Peak’s new foray into 3D printed sneakers in the comments below. Is this something you would wear? Because this writer can’t wait until it releases!
