Unlike typical sweatshop shoes, our sandal soles here at OESH are 3D printed, made using our brains and robots. Grasshopper, an algorithmic design plug-in to Rhinoceros 3D, gives us the ability to adjust the placement and sizing of the base curves of our design. Combining industry knowledge and cutting edge programs, we are able to increase the number of people who benefit from these healthy by design shoes.
One of the benefits of 3D printing the Athena Sandals here at OESH in Charlottesville, VA is that we can customize the design to meet customers’ specific needs. Sometimes it’s a longer or wider foot bed; other times it’s a longer strap. Sometimes it’s changing the shape slightly it to fit a man’s foot. At this time we can only offer customization locally, so if you’re in the area stop by on Saturdays from 10-3 and see what we can do for you. Not to fear, our loyal customers all over the world, we are looking into how we can offer this through our online shop in the future.
