adidas’ revolutionary Futurecraft 4D technology is finally getting more widespread in its releases. Recently, the brand unveiled two colorways of a reworked AlphaEdge 4D, but now, a few days later, we have a good look at the third color, in partnership with Parley.


The adidas AlphaEdge 4D first appeared on our radars late last year, when the sleek silhouette magically appeared on the Canadian version of the brand’s website overnight. As expected, the shoe sold out fast, as was the norm for any Futurecraft 4D-equipped sneaker at the time. Since then, the AlphaEdge has seen several different releases, gradually increasing the available pairs with each drop. Now, everyone can put their hands on a pair, if they can afford it.

This week, the AlphaEdge 4D has made another revolutionary jump in technology. Thanks to Parley for the Oceans, adidas’ recycling-turned-shoemaking partners, the reworked upper of the AlphaEdge will launch later this month constructed entirely from recycled plastic yarns. This initiative was first introduced several years ago by the two innovators but has remained relatively quiet in recent months. While it is unclear whether the Parley AlphaEdge 4D will continue to release in new colorways, the initial “Aero Green” look is definitely one to keep an eye out for.

The latest in adidas’ AlphaEdge 4D line will be available on the adidas app and website on June 8th, 2019, for World Oceans Day. This “Aero Green” Parley adaptation will likely retail for the usual $300 price tag, and will likely be an adidas exclusive for the time being until more can be put into production. Check out the teaser images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more adidas 4D release news.
