Established in 2015, Freckled Footwear continues to push the boundaries of footwear design through innovative software solutions. Possessing advanced skills in 3D lighting, texturing, shading, rendering, and compositing with Modo, Blender, Solidworks, and Zbrush, we create studio-quality 3D assets for digital sampling and animation. For additive manufacturing solutions, we utilize Ntopology and Houdini to create and iterate generative designs that propel your brand into the future. We have experience with large private brand houses (Canadian Tire, Sportsdirect.com), international brands (Skechers, Helly Hansen), and some of the World’s most sustainably innovative footwear brands (Skye Footwear, Native Shoes).
