With the announcement of the official release of the Adidas Futurecraft 4D, questions have been raised about the future of sneaker technology.
Boost, it's time to move over; there's a new tech on the block.
The Futurecraft 4D marks the first sneaker to contain 'light synthesis 3D printing'. This comes in the form of the midsole which is constructed of 20,000 individual struts, engineered to return as much energy as possibly in to your step whilst reacting intuitively.
The Futurecraft itself comes in very pricey, at around $400, but as this technology expands and evolves, inevitably production costs will plummet and in time the sneaker market could be revolutionised by what could become a tremendously cheap sneaker with incredible build quality.
The sneaker itself looks brilliant, it's one of the best sneakers Adidas have put out of late and will slide in to any outfit seamlessly. Pair them up with retro track pants or a premium fleeced hoodie and you'll be all set. Take a look at the sneaker below, let us know what you think of it!
