Biomimicry Shoe by Marieka Ratsma and Kostika Spaho

Those 3D-printed shoes were designed by Dutch fashion designer Marieka Ratsma and American architect Kostika Spaho

Organic inspiration

The curious and scuptural hollow heel was inspired by bird’s skull

Lightweight structure 

The delicate and hollowed structure that almost looks like lace allowed the shoe to be 3D-printed using less material.

Scuptural design

Creators Ratsma and Spaho used the shape of a bird’s beak to design the spike of the heel.
