Spanish start-up ATHOS, is looking to change the sports footwear industry with a first-of-its-kind 3D printed climbing shoe, made to fit the feet and needs of each climber using HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing.

ATHOS identified a major problem in the world of climbing footwear – the need to buy two or three sizes too small to gain the necessary support – and sought a solution to create a customized, sustainable, high-performance climbing shoe. HP 3D technology has enabled ATHOS to combine technology and innovation to put the climber at the center of the entire design and production process: a process that begins with the scanning of the user’s feet, followed by printing, post-processing, assembly of parts and finally, the delivery of the end product.

A member of HP’s Digital Manufacturing Partner Network, Sculpteo are equipped with HP Multi Jet Fusion technology, allowing ATHOS to create end-products that are flexible, customizable and sustainable.
