Here some render of lattices for shoes.
Disclamer : I am not a shoe designer. I don’t think open lattice are good for shoes … But i was a good exercise to answer this question
To do that I reuse a model of feet that was on this forum.
The I remesh it using the Quad remesher form Rhino 7 WIP
I used this clean mesh to extract the insole, here I used my Mesh Iso Splitting Script with a single angle.
This mesh is quad remeshed in order to get the quads pattern that will be used for the lattice
This upper part of the insole is extruded with a variable thickness depending on X
These 2 quad meshes are used by Pufferfish plugin to make the boxes
Lattice from Intralattice is morphed in Pufferfish boxes
For rendering I used my own Mesh Pipe has classical Mesh Pipe (form PufferFish) are not fast as the output one mesh per curve.
These meshes are not usable except for rendering. To thicken the mesh use Dendro and/or fattener
