Miss America 2014 Parade to Feature First Ever 3D Printed Shoes

The Miss America Pageant and Parade has been an important part of the New Jersey tradition and the event has been organized since the past 88 years very religiously. It takes place in the month of September and representatives from each of the 52 states and territories show up in order to compete with each other in a number of competitions of different natures. Some of these include Lifestyle and Fitness (Swimsuit), Talent, Evening Wear, Private Interview, and the On-Stage Question. Crowing the next Miss America has to be a careful decision and fashion plays a vital role in this.

The pageant held every year is not just for the participants but is an important attraction for everyone else and a whole sort of hobby for the spectators. Following the event from the 1970s where the onlookers started shouting “show us your shows” at the participants, the parade is now known as the “Miss America ‘Show Us Your Shoes’ Parade”. This parade is basically going to feature decorative floats, bands, military heroes and more and the entire concentration is going to be on the shows of the contestants from the 53 states.

It is only sometimes that someone does so extraordinary that we have to highlight it. This time it was one contestant Miss Georgia, Maggie Bridges who happens to be a student at Georgia Tech and got a little help for her shoes from her friends there. Her effort is going to bring forth the view of the world’s first partially 3D printed shoes to take part in the show parade. The masterminds behind the shoes are Maren Sonne, Jordan Thomas and Julia Brooks who took guidance from Dr. Wayne Li, professor of industrial design. And as a result, the shoes have turned out to be amazing and perfect to steal the show.
