Adidas to Release First-Ever 3D-Printed Sneakers
Today, adidas announced that it will be making its 3D technology shoes available to purchase for the first time with a limited edition release.
The adidas 3D-printed shoe features an engineered 3D web structure with dense zones in high force areas and less dense zones in the low force areas, allowing for the optimum level of performance. The 3D Runner also features a 3D printed heel counter, which is integrated into the midsole and avoids the typical process of gluing or stitching. A black PRIMEKNIT upper ensures high style, superior fit and performance.
Adidas first unveiled the 3D Runner in August when a select number of its top athletes – including Team GB heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill, USA swimmer Allison Schmitt and Colombian BMX cyclist Mariana Pajon – were gifted pairs.
The adidas 3D Runner will be available for $333 via adidas Confirmed in New York with sign ups starting today and reservations opening tomorrow, Dec. 13. Pairs can be picked up on Dec. 15 at adidas NYC, the brand’s new flagship store. A limited number of the shoes will also be made available on Dec. 15 in London and Tokyo.
