It looks like the wonders of 3D printing are extending far beyond the fields of medicine and entertainment, as adidas has unveiled a unique 3D-printed running midsole named Futurecraft 3D, which can be customized accordingly in order to deliver a perfect amount of cushioning. The adidas sneakers that were used to showcase the concept are a part of the “Futurecraft series”, and they provide an unparalleled level of individualized support and cushioning.
Adidas wants to create a quick and easy customization service that would allow a potential customer to receive a 3D-printed running shoe by just spending a brief amount of time on a treadmill. This special adidas footwear would be based on a breathable carbon copy of the athlete’s footprint, which means that it would flaunt precise pressure points and contours in order to provide the best possible running experience. The adidas shoes created through the Futurecraft initiative are a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation and performance.
