These World-First 3D-Printed Carbon Bike Shoes Are Sculpted To Your Feet

Like many endurance sports, cycling will make for a far better experience if you’re wearing the right shoes. Above all else, though, it’s crucial that they fit correctly because a super-stiff sole won’t do anything for your efficiency if you’re battling blisters upon every pedal stroke.

With this in mind, LORE — a startup comprised of former product designers from Apple, Tesla, Puma, DPS Skis, Nike, and Black Diamond — has just launched an offering that’s set to revolutionize the industry forever. It’s called the ‘LoreOne,’ and it makes for the world’s first-ever 3D-printed cycling shoe. Much more than a mere marketing gimmick, however, the design allows for an unprecedented level of individual personalization, with the outer carbon exoskeleton based on a sub-millimeter scan of your feet. And that’s not all; inside, Lore fits the shoes with a bespoke footbed, a sculpted toe box, and a reinforced heel cup to further enhance the glove-like fit whilst also reducing any wasted watts. At $1,900, they certainly aren’t cheap, but when you consider that the entire customization process can be performed using an iPhone app, the cost of innovation speaks for itself.

Purchase: $1,900
