Designer Alan Nguyen of Freedom of Creation in Amsterdam created a 3D printed iPhone shoe in 2012, commissioned by Freedom Of Creation for FreshFiber. It is a 3D Printed Mashup Shoe which holds an iPhone with a collection of the most successful iPhone cases from FreshFiber (now acquired by 3D Systems).

Nguyen has the luxury to deliver work on demand with the help of 3D Printing. Designing an object on a screen then with a push of a button, a physical model can be produced instantly. Mr Nguyen explained to BBC why he printed this iPhone shoe. "We are like DJs," he said, "because they take other people's things and make something completely new." He wanted to test copyright limitations through it, as it contains designs from other designers.

"A super fun project that allowed me to question the possibilities of fusing all three categories of Art, Fashion and Product Design with the use of 3D Printing." noted Nguyen.
