FUSED footwear makes and sells 3D printed shoes.
3D printing our products allows for a high degree of personalization. Customers can choose from several design features and textures. We currently offer our shoes in regular EU sizes, but the fit can be customized if necessary.
Our shoes are printed in one piece from a flexible, rubber-like material. It is skin friendly, highly abrasion resistant, waterproof, allows for good grip and will not pick up odours or dirt. We also recycle used FUSED shoes into material to print new shoes with. If you send your old shoes back to us, we will give you a 20% discount on a new pair! Visit our Return 2 Recycle page to find out more.
Our first model, the Spark, is a unisex sneaker that can be customized in several ways. We will introduce a new model every couple of months. Follow our instagram to stay up to date with our latest developments.
We will introduce new shoe models every few months, and also expand our product portfolio with more colors and materials. We hope you are finding this just as exciting as we do!

About FUSED footwear and Philippe Holthuizen
FUSED footwear was started in the middle of 2017 by Philippe Holthuizen (the mad scientist pictured). A previous start-up had given him some hands-on experience with 3D printing, and Philippe realized the potential for 3D printing complete shoes. He gave himself three months to explore the possibilities.
By September of 2017, it was clear the concept would work. He decided to focus on fashionable early-adopters initially, which is reflected by the decidedly sneaker-like silhouette of the first FUSED shoe on offer, the Spark.
On top of that, Philippe is also using his 3D printed shoes daily, to prove that 3D printed products are now a viable option. Even better, he believes that if you have the skills, you can now build a brand or business based on 3D printing, without any outside investment or help.
