Jon Fidler, a UK based 3D Printing specialist and designer has teamed up with UK based Illustrator Damilola Odusote to produce a sculptural concept for Sneaker brand Converse shoes. 

They took the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star shoe and used it as the foundation for an artistic piece with themes of rock and roll and basketball culture. 

Damilola's 2D artwork served as the blueprint for Fidler to work his 3D magic. Using an SLS printer, John Fidler produced a 3D Printed version which was printed using Nylon plastic material.
