Georgia Tech Students Engineer Shoes for Miss Georgia

A team of three Georgia Tech industrial design students created a very unique pair of shoes for Miss Georgia, Maggie Bridges, to wear for the Miss America parade. Maggie is a senior at Tech, and the team of students wanted to make something instantly recognizable but true to Georgia Tech traditions. They designed and built a shoe inspired by the Ramblin‘ Wreck. Maren Sonne, Jordan Thomas, and Julia Brooks used 3D printing, laser cutting machines and heat molding techniques to create the awesome shoe. See more about how they came up with the final product.
