While their Boost technology continues to dominate sneaker conversations around the world, adidas has been busy crafting the future of its product line with manufacturing methods that use technologies such as 3D printing and Digital Light Synthesis. 

Their latest design to come out of their R&D labs is the Futurecraft 4D, a shoe developed in collaboration with Silicon Valley-based Carbon, who have created a programmable resin platform to meet the specific needs of individual athletes. adidas plans to release the shoe to the public in a limited run of 5,000 pairs this fall and will add additional releases in the following seasons.
