adidas is scheduled to release its Futurecraft 4D runner in limited quantities sometime this coming December, but given its extremely high demand and low supply, it’s likely that the high-tech model will be out of reach to the masses. As a solution to this inevitable issue, adidas is introducing a new model called the AlphaEDGE 4D, which will offer Futurecraft technology to the public.

The advanced model boasts an upper made of FORGEFIBER technology — a process that uses TPU-coated yarn and stitching compression at pressure points for ultimate strength in motion — and a unique lacing system. The main characteristic, however, is the sole unit made with light and oxygen via Digital Light Synthesis, a 3D printing process that provides unprecedented support, cushioning and energy return.

The adidas AlphaEDGE 4D is reported to launch in May 2018 stay tuned for official release information.
