New looking, fresh design from Adidas. Good to see some eco credentials in this comfortable everyday shoe.
The latest shoe from adidas serves perhaps more of a glimpse of possible future shoe design thanks to its 3D printed midsole system. We’ve already seen how 3D printing can be used to create custom orthotic insoles and It’s hoped that in the future this type of midsole construction will offer different levels of support, cushioning and control throughout the shoe tailored to the individual athletes needs.
The shoe is designed as a daily trainer rather than a high-performance model and with the deep midsole (33/22mm stack) it feels a little heavier than many at around 335g, but the plus side appears to be the high level of durability from the cushioning.
The 3D print design aims to direct the foot forwards after initial impact and on close-up inspection you can see how this works; the angle of the lattice print ‘leaning forwards’. It’s a totally different feel to the brand’s popular Boost shoes with more of a cushioned rather than ‘springy’ feel.
The ‘Primegreen’ knitted upper makes for a very snug fit, wrapping the foot and holding it very securely. It also serves of a hint to the future, using 50% recycled materials in its construction.
A rubber outsole completes the model adding smooth comfort.
Innovation will always get a thumbs up from us. The adidas 4DFWD moves the brand on in to a new direction and it is good to see adidas spending more time (and money) on their running range. It's interesting rather than brilliant but worth considering if you are a fan of adidas.
