We’ve already seen an adidas sneaker, the original 4D model, made with a 3D printed midsole, and now it’s the Alphaedge 4D turn to hit the spotlight. But let’s talk a bit about the 4D model sneakers and what they are all about. It all started with the Futurecraft 4D running shoe, which was the first ever running shoe based on a data-driven design made from a digital light synthesis technology. All of this might sound too fancy to understand, and somethings might be a bit hard to understand, but luckily we made this blog, so let’s get a bit more geeky and talk about the techs.
The Alphaedge is made with the Futurecraft midsole, which is crafted from light and oxygen. This special combination secures a controlled energy return, and this will provide a long-lasting cushioning and stability for when you run, walk or look on-point in your zone. The Futurecraft midsole is pioneered by the tech-company Carbon, and is, hold your horses, 3D printed, and is achieved by transforming liquid into solids and carving it by using light and oxygen.
