    PEAK Introduces 3D Printed Basketball Shoes

    Several professional athletes have sported footwear made with 3D printing, like Olympic runner Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price and Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber, just to name a couple. Now NBA star Dwight Howard has thrown his support behind 3D printing, in the form of a pair of specially designed basketball boots. The boots were designed and produced by PEAK Sport Products, the Chinese company responsible for the 3D printed "Future" sneakers released earlier this year. Describing the basketball shoes as the first-ever wearable 3D printed basketball boots, PEAK introduced them last week at the 2017 PEAK China Tour and Dwight Howard III Press Conference.

    These look great, and very workable. Side and heel supports as well as part of the toe box can also be 3D printed.
    The next opportunity: 3D printed race cycling shoes.

    Anyone that has a pair, what's the sizing and fit like on the shoes? Do they run true to size or is half a size or full size down recommended? I'm a size US11 in my Ultraboost 3.0 (which I know runs slightly smaller) and those are already a very snug fit. Wondering if a size US10 for Dame 4s be any good for me? I would consider myself to have somewhat wide feet though.Would love to try them on to find out my fit but these shoes are impossible to find in Australia right now- tried ebay, gumtree, facebook marketplace and adidas outlet stores in NSW with no luck. Even went on GOAT and StockX but can't find them in my size. If anyone in Australia knows any good stores that could possibly have these old shoes in stock please let me know!Also long shot but if anyone that has a pair of basketball hoopDame 4s in a size US11 that they have sitting around or no longer use and in good condition that they are able to sell and ship to Sydney Australia please PM me! In desparate need for new basketball shoes to hoop in, my Hyperfuse 2014 has reached the end of its life haha.
