Adidas FutureCraft 4D: A Brief History of the Future of Sneaker Cushioning

Adidas FutureCraft 4D: A Brief History of the Future of Sneaker Cushioning

There is much hype revolving around the new minty/Aero Green sole in the Adidas FutureCraft 4D sneakers. Although from afar they look like they largely lack durability, they are actually designed for high-performance. In fact, they are the result of 17 years of athlete data collection. So today we’ll round up everything we know about the Futurecraft so far and more.

 

What is Adidas FutureCraft?

The Adidas Futurecraft 4D is one of the brand’s most recent innovations that encompasses an avant-guard 3D-printed sole. Since 2015, Adidas had announced that they are working on a FutureCraft series with 3D-printed midsoles. However, it wasn’t until April of 2017 that the sneaker as we know it today was first unveiled, later to officially release its first sneaker on January 18, 2018.

That Midsole Though

Made to withstand wear and tear, the midsole is grown from a liquid by using light and oxygen through a method called Digital Light Synthesis.  This technology was made possible by a company called Carbon.

Carbon is a hardware manufacturing company that creates materials for different uses. They are innovators of their own kind and have created many new ways for the formation of different material.

With this new midsole material, Adidas can create more high-performance sneakers than ever before. This 3D printing of the sole will allow for higher and faster production and manufacturing. But undoubtedly at a jaw-droppingly high cost per unit. This explains why the sneaker can cost even over $300 USD at retail.

It’s far greater than any foam cushioning. Could it be the next Boost?
