Wiivv receives $ 1,1 million to produce custom sandals by 3D printing

Wiivv

Wiivv is a Canadian-based startup that was founded for the sole purpose of developing custom footwear making use of 3D printing technologies. With this idea and several prototypes that show how far your idea can go and how interesting it can be, it has managed to convince many interested parties through several crowdfunding campaigns, as well as to achieve 1,1 million in your latest round of funding.

If this amount has surprised you, tell you that this is only the last financing campaign that Wiivv has carried out since, since its creation, the company has obtained no less than 3,5 million dollars to which we must add 240.000 dollars of a crowdfunding campaign for their first product, some templates baptized as BASE.

Wiivv manages to raise 1,1 million dollars to be able to manufacture its custom sandals.

At this staggering amount, in a second campaign, they managed to raise another $ 4 million with which to buy eSoles company, a competitor that manufactured custom templates with a customer base of about 50.000 users. In this last step, the company has managed to take the aforementioned 1,1 million dollars with a fairly original idea, design and manufacture sandals fully adapted to the shape of the foot of each client.

In order to design your sandals, Wiivv has published a mobile application that allows you to take different samples of your feet. Thanks to this information, the company can manufacture sandals that fit perfectly to each of your feet. As a final detail, tell you that these sandals will be manufactured in San Diego (California), where the company has several 3D printers working day and night in manufacturing in polyamide PA12 of these sandals.
