In September, adidas Running dropped the Futurecraft M.F.G. exclusive to Germany with production sourced from its high-tech SPEEDFACTORY production facility. Then adidas announced that it would use a biofabric to create a new Boost cushioned runner.
The innovations continue with adidas giving its 3D printed Futurecraft silhouette a retail debut this week. The drop is composed of a Primeknit base, rubber outsole and 3D printed elements…
The shoe features an engineered 3D web structure with dense zones in high force areas and less dense zones in the low force areas, allowing for the optimum level of performance. The 3D Runner also features a 3D printed heel counter, which is integrated into the midsole and avoids the typical process of gluing or stitching. Benefits include greater elasticity, compliancy and support. A black PRIMEKNIT upper ensures high style, superior fit and performance.
For its debut, the silhouette is limited. Those in NYC can grab a pair through the adidas Confirmed app. You can sign-up for the release today, reserve a pair starting on Tuesday, the 13th of December and pick them up on the 15th of December.
In London and Tokyo, the sneaker is also set to release on the 15th of December.
