The adidas Futurecraft Biosteel has been officially unveiled, which is the world’s first performance shoe made using Biosteel fiber – a replication of natural silk – at the Biofabricate Conference in New York.
The adidas Futurecraft Biofabric prototype shoe features an upper made from 100% Biosteel fiber, a nature-based and completely biodegradable high-performance fiber, developed by the German biotech company AMSilk. The material offers a unique combination of properties that are crucial in performance, such as being 15% lighter in weight than conventional synthetic fibers as well as having the potential to be the strongest fully natural material available.
“This concept represents premium innovation. By using Biosteel® fiber in our products, we have achieved an unrivalled level of sustainability. We are moving beyond closed loop and into an infinite loop – or even no loop at all. This is a pioneering stride forward beyond sustainability into a new territory of bionic innovation.”
Like many adidas Futurecraft designs, this new Biosteel version is just a concept at the moment and there are no future plans of a release. But one in the near future could be a possibility.
