Editor’s Notes: adidas has finally given its long-awaited Futurecraft 4D sneaker an official release date. On January 18, the innovative silhouette will launch in the New York City area through Consortium retailers such as KITH, Packer and SNS.
Recognized as the “world’s first high performance footwear featuring midsoles crafted with light and oxygen,” the Futurecraft’s single-component midsole is designed to provide controlled energy return.
The shoe is then highlighted by engineered zones that adhere to various needs of running, including propulsion, cushioning, stability and comfort. The aforementioned midsole is comprised of over 20,000 struts that can be individually tuned to enhance control on energy return necessary for a specific function.
Primeknit construction takes over the upper of the Futurecraft 4D, while the engineered ventilation zones also make the sneaker noticeably breathable.
Again, you’ll have your first shot at adidas’s all-new Futurecraft 4D on January 18.
