This flexible 3D-printed sneaker folds up to fit in your pocket

• http://www.dvice.com, Raymond Wong
The Sneakerbot II is a 3D-printed sneaker inspired by popular '80s sci-fi movies such as Back to the Future and Star Wars. Designed by Recreus founder Ignacio Garcia, the Sneakerbot II uses his company's new Filaflex 1.75mm, a filament so bendable, the sneaker can actually be folded up and stuffed right into your jeans pocket (see video below for demo). In fact, they might just be the comfiest and most compact pair of 3D-printed sneakers ever created.
While the skeptic in us is concerned about cushioning and shock absorbance, at the very least, these flexible rubbery shoes could make for some decent rain shoes to fit over normal shoe or sneakers. And of course, they'll easily fit in your bag once folded up.
