We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
For many decades I've had trouble getting interesting shoe designs, my size is not common and I got tired of being told no or we have these in white or black only, so when I found you can design your own on the internet I became a "sneaker head", I have multiple custom designs and one of them are my IMMK4 "Iron Man Mark 4" red and yellow Reebok's. I needed to complete the look so I designed flexible plates to cover the laces so when I walk the conventions people will stop asking if I beat up "Ronald McDonald" and stole his shoes (this is my personal joke to those few people I come across that still do not know who "Iron Man" is and I feel bad for them and so make a joke to make them feel better) no one has ever actually said the R.M. joke to me.
I printed the individual parts by pausing and changing colors, the plates interlock and the hooks and stays are bonded to the underside to match lace locations and tongue opening widths, scale these to fit lace diameters.
