Ballerinas seem effortless when performing, but this is not the case in reality. If you've ever seen ballet dancers' feet, you may be shocked, these ballet dancers usually have bruises on their feet. Hadar Neeman, a graduate of Bezalel school of art and design, decided to use 3D printing technology to create a pair of ballet shoes to protect the dancers' feet after seeing the feet of her friend who were a ballet dancer .

According to the editor, Neeman graduated from a product design major, she began to study the creation of 3D printed ballet shoes after seeing her friend injured by dancing. As far as she knew, although some people have already used 3D printing technology to make several other types of shoes, such as sneakers, sandals and high heels, no one has used 3D printing technology to make ballet shoes.

Neeman designed and printed a ballet shoe named P-rouette in 3D printer. The sole and insole adopt a light mesh structure. The satin portion of the shoe is cut on the shoe last of a special shoemaker designed by Neeman himself and placed between the sole and insole during printing without glue or stitching. The toe cap is printed in 3D with the same lightweight mesh material.

Like most other 3D printing shoes, P-rouette shoes can be customized to perfectly fit each dancer's feet. The dancers only need to scan their feet with the application program, then use the scanning data to create a detailed 3D model, and finally optimize each shoe to achieve a perfect fit to the dancers' feet and comfort.

P-rouette shoes not only provide customized fit, but also provide additional support for dancers, which can prevent all kinds of injuries common to ballet dancers, the durability of the shoes is also three times higher than that of traditional ballet shoes.
