If you wear shoes you walk on water. About 2,000 gallons of it!
Current manufacturing processes use about 2,000 per pair of shoes.
Feetz is revolutionizing the footwear industry by delivering custom shoes on demand by using proprietary 3D printing technology. And we've taken the water out of the process.
We've also taken the landfills out of the process. Your same old shoes can sit in a landfill for 1,000 years. Not Feetz shoes. We make them from recycled/recyclable material.
By taking photos of each foot with your mobile phone, we can create 7 billion sizes with ZERO inventory, water, and landfills.
Save the water for drinking, not walking on.
