Adidas recently announced plans to expand its 4D range with a new reflective ALPHAEDGE 4D  running shoe. Adidas 4D was first revealed in 2017 as a concept release from FUTURECRAFT, Adidas’ innovation incubator, and features a midsole printed with light and oxygen using Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ technology pioneered by Silicon Valley-based company, Carbon.  The distinctive 3D-printed design now features across the brand’s Running, Stella McCartney, Originals and Statement product categories.

Adidas and Carbon came together to combine years of athlete data with the latest 3D printing technology, which allows products to be created at considerable commercial scale. 

ADIDAS 4D is a unique solution that can be precisely tuned to respond to the movement patterns, weight and gait of the user. For future 4D products, Adidas foresees designing the lattice in a way which suits the movements of a certain sport, as well as the individual user based on personalised data.
