Recycle the Melonia Shoe and it need never go out of fashion


Materialise is promoting its involvement in the Melonia Shoe, intended by its designers to be a ‘closed loop’ product – at the end of its life, the shoe’s material is recycled into a new shoe.

The shoes, designed by Naim Josefi and Souzan Youssouf, were 3D printed in polyamide using laser sintering technology at Materialise’s headquarters in Belgium.

Josefi and Youssouf, of Sweden’s Beckmans and Konstfack design schools respectively, collaborated in the creation of the shoes. Five pairs were made by Materialise for use in Naim’s “Melonia” collection at last year’s Stockholm Fashion Show.
