Inspired by the shape and bone structure of bird skull this Biomimicry shoe is created using 3D printing technique that is becoming ever so popular in fashion industry. This shoe is created by Dutch fashion designer Marieka Ratsma and American architect Kostika Spaho to beautifully portray the skeletal shape of birds while keeping it very lightweight truly signifying the agility, strength and elegance of the bone structure. Clearly inspired by nature this shoe is a result of their creative thinking and also shows how nature can have a defining say in inventive designs that leave us all amazed.

The Biomimicry shoe has the shape of a bird’s cranium for the front toe and the tapered beak signifies the spike of the heel. Although I’m not very sure if this shoe is going to be comfortable for frequent wearing purpose but still the unique design makes it worth cherishing.
