Pleko Shoes 3D Printed with Carbon Fiber

October 25 2021

CRP Technology has built as single unit the structural part of Pleko spike shoes: outsole, midsole, pins and ribbing. The result is a functional prototype, flexible and resistant to deformation even in thin thicknesses, which is innovative for customization, technologies and material used: carbon fiber reinforced Windform SP composite.
Using a completely new and revolutionary concept for the athletics footwear market, Venetian middle-distance runner Miro Buroni developed Pleko, customized athletics track shoes with innovative features in terms of production technology and material.
To create Pleko, Miro made use of the skills and support of two companies, Diadora for historical analysis and design; CRP Technology for the manufacture of the outsole-midsole and ribbing, through professional 3D printing (Powder Bed Fusion process with composite polymers fibers-reinforced that is Selective Laser Sintering) and Windform TOP-LINE composite materials.
