Hong Kong entrepreneurs offer genetically modified logos on shoes

Hong Kong-based Rayfish Footwear has released electric stingray leather sneakers, not just because exclusive sportswear is used for athletic shoes, but because the leather is genetically modified. An unusual pink-blue color is achieved not by coloring, but by changing the DNA of the stingray.

For lovers of exotic on its website, the company offers to choose their own print design (the company itself offers a choice of 29 samples).

Rayfish Footwear CEO Raymond Ong says: "We are ready to create almost any shape and logo on stingray leather, excluding square shapes."

The price of a pair starts at $ 1800.

To polish new technology, the company plans to hold a series of design competitions.

The animal rights organization PETA has so far refrained from commenting on the ethics of the new product. But given that customization is one of the global consumer trends, it is possible that bio-customization will become part of this trend. Rayfish Footwear is a startup founded in 2012. The first prototype was manufactured in 2011. Based on materials from the site analpa.ru.
