Coming off the heels of the adidas 3d Runner, adidas has teamed up with Carbon, a technology company based in California, to create the new adidas Futurecraft 4D Runner.

Carbon, which focuses mainly on improving methods of three-dimensional printing, helped to create the sole of this shoe using their Digital Light Synthesis technology. This process utilizes light, liquid, and midsole materials like EVA or plastic as they have never been used before. The result is a stunning lattice of structural beams to create a full-length midsole for the Futurecraft. The reason for the lattice is so that it can be reworked to fit an athletes foot in an extremely short amount of time. In the future, adidas hopes to allow athletes to walk into retail locations, scan their feet, and have a Futurecraft 4D shoe constructed personally for them in a matter of hours, in store. This would revolutionize the way customers buy shoes, rather than looking for something comfortable, the comfort would come from the shape of your own foot. adidas released extremely limited “Friends and Family” pairs of the Futurecraft 4D last year, and are expected to up the numbers for this release.¬† This pair features a plain black Primeknit upper atop a pale green Futurecraft midsole. Check out the pictures below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more adidas 4D updates.


Recent rumors had reported that the adidas Futurecraft 4D would release on January 18th, 2018, however sources have said the shoe has been delayed until after the Spring/Summer 2018 season. Quantities are said to very limited, and reportedly will only release via the new adidas Confirmed web system. Stay tuned for updates.
