The ADIDAS 3D RUNNER is the German brand’s latest 3D-printed shoe and will be the first available for purchase.

adidas unveiled the 3D Runner back in in August when it gave out pairs to its stable of athletes, including Jessica Ennis-Hill. Now us ordinary punters will be able to get our hands on a pair…if we’re lucky, as it will be available in very limited supplies in London. What makes this shoe special, then? Well it has a black Primeknit upper – so far, so normal – but it’s the midsole, as well as the heel counter, which is integrated into the midsole and avoids the typical process of gluing or stitching, that are made from 3D-printed materials. The benefits that 3D-printed features on a running shoe are the greater elasticity, compliancy and support that they provide. The advantage 3D-printing techniques offer to manufacturing of any kind is the ability to create products using fewer parts, so less assembly is required, and with trainers specifically, it eliminates the need for gluing and stitching. Another advantage is that the technology will enable the creation of customized shoes based on your unique footprint, running style, foot shape, performance needs and personal preferences. The customization is not quite here yet but it’s a major point of difference between 3D printing and more traditional techniques, so look out for it in the future.

Will you try and buy yourself a piece of the future? The ADIDAS 3D RUNNER will be available on THURSDAY 15 DECEMBER at the adidas flagship stores in New York, Tokyo, and London. In the meantime, check out the latest footwear at ADIDAS via the banner below.
