Drop Everything and Check Out These 3D Printed Miss America Shoes
Guys, it may be the first day back after a long weekend — aka, like, the WORST type of Monday that’s not even technically a Monday — but it’s a reeeally good day to get a little geeky in the coolest way(s) possible. After we just got done telling you about Rebecca Minkoff’s new wearables (yes, the woman that makes purses worth saving up for, is now entering into the blinged out tech-cessory space, get excited!) we have an update in 3D printed fashion. The new tech is about to go where no, literally, NO 3D printer has gone before: the Miss America pageant.
The beauty queen proving 3D printed fashion is wearable and (hopefully) #winning is Georgia Tech student and this year’s Miss Georgia, Maggie Bridges. Mags will be rocking custom, 3D printed, laser cut, gold, glittery, geekily gorgeous heels when she competes for the title of Miss America in next week’s pageant.
Three industrial design students at Georgia Tech created these shoes, designed to look like the school’s student body mascot, a Model A Sport Coupe called the “Ramblin’ Wreck.” Watch the students collaborate on the design with Miss G below:
Yes, she already has our vote. And can we print those design students some crowns of their own while we’re at it?
