A Closer Look at the adidas Futurecraft with 3D-Printed Sole Unit

This innovative design could possibly change the way consumers buy sneakers.

Showcased by adidas Creators Base in Brazil, the Futurecraft is one of the first shoe models to employ an entirely 3D-printed sole unit. The performance sneaker features an upper crafted with an all-new knit, which is designed to enhance durability.

You can browse the gallery above to have a closer look at the new adidas Futurecraft.
