There's no denying it, 3-D printing is going to affect consumer goods in a big way. Just how it will do that is still up in the air, but companies like adidas are embracing the future and showing what could be possible in the coming years. 

Their Futurecraft 3D midsole showcases the potential of a 3D-printed sole that could be individually designed according to the wearer's own footprint, creating a customized design that aims to give you the best running experience possible. 

No word yet on when we'll see this in consumer's hands, but with 3D printing technology improving and becoming more common everyday, we bet you'll see products like this and ones that are even more impressive in the very near future.
