Feetz raises 1.25 million US dollars for new investments
The US-based company specialized in customizable footwear using 3D printing reached a 1.25 million US dollars seed round
Feetz has applied 3D printing technology to the footwear industry enabling consumers to have a perfect customized fit. The process of getting Feetz shoes is straightforward. Customers can create their ideal size at home in a few minutes by using the Feetz App to get a 3D scan of their feet using one piece of paper and three photos of each foot. Consumers select the design and colors, then Feetz uses the foot data to create custom fit, tailor-made shoes delivered within seven days.

The capital now raised will be used to launch the Feetz platform directly to customers later this year. Silicon Valley (Menlo Park) based Khosla Ventures led the investment. Additional partners include the JumpFund (Chattanooga, TN) and Uli Becker, former CEO of Reebok who has also joined the Feetz board of directors.

“Today, we wear a shoe that’s been made and sized to fit anyone. I’m excited to bring a new reality to market by offering 7+ billion shoe sizes: 1 for everyone in the world,” stated Lucy Beard, CEO and founder of Feetz, adding: “We celebrate your uniqueness by offering the only size you’ll ever need: SizeMeTM. Our shoes are not only custom fit but can be customized so that no two pairs are ever the same.”

“Feetz has applied 3D printing technology to the footwear industry enabling consumers to have a perfect customized fit,” said Vinod Khosla, partner at Khosla Ventures. “Founder and CEO, Lucy Beard came to us with her vision to never try on a pair of shoes again, and we’re excited to help make that a reality.”
