To shine in Rio 2016, Adidas uses the 3D printing technology on its sneakers for the first time – designed especially for the Olympic champions.
The mainstream sports brand is technologically advanced, so 3D is on their radar, too. Adidas decided to give the Olympic athletes, their first ever made 3D- printed Futurecraft shoes.
The technical details of the shoes are very interesting: there is a seamless and hi-tech fiber around the sneaker material and no sealing techniques are required. The fabric is called Primeknit and it’s 100% breathable. Impressive, right?
The special feature of the Futurecraft shoes is not just about the 3D methods, Adidas also made the sneaker suitable for 10 kilometers-runs.
The gifts are only for the Olympians who have won medals. Only a champion deserves such glory. Each gold, silver and bronze medal winner gets the exclusive pair of The Triple Black Adidas Futurecratft 3D.
The New Zealand rugby player Tyla Nathan Wong already got the silver-stringed sneaker. The shoe is now called “3D Printed Winners Shoe”. Right after the Olympics, the shoes will be mass-produced.
3D printer is highly maintaining its popularity in the fashion business and sneaker industry.
So what do you think about the new-tech, comfortable sneakers?
