adidas just debuted the latest from their innovative Futurecraft category, the adidas Futurecraft 4D. The sportswear brand partnered with Silicon Valley tech company Carbon to create a shoe built with light and oxygen through an amazing process called Digital Light Synthesis. According to Carbon, Digital Light Synthesis is a process that uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to generate durable products. The Futurecraft 4D is first application of that technology onto a shoe by adidas.
By the end of 2018, adidas plans on producing more than 100,000 pairs of shoes using Digital Light Synthesis technology. This month, adidas will release 300 pairs of the Futurecraft 4D shoe to friends and family, followed by more than 5,000 pairs that are scheduled to release at retail this Fall/Winter 2017 season.
