adidas just unveiled the new FutureCraft STRUNG, which features the most radical additively manufactured midsoles enabled by Carbon to date.
Constructed with a new textile known as STRUNG, this tech allows developers to dial specific structure coordinates on computers that are then set to robots for development. This new technology will allow more precise zones of breathability, flexibility, and support.
Taken from the brand’s press release: “As a business we are constantly striving for optimum footwear performance. To achieve this, we need to get the most out of our materials. We like to talk about our products “silently serving” the athlete – seamlessly improving performance and in this case getting more out of every thread so that they can focus on nothing but their sport.”
“The midsole is our most radical ADIDAS 4D lattice design to date – featuring a new shape to cater for forefoot strikers. The heel has been minimized to remove weight and the rubber outsole is specifically engineered to provide traction just where needed, resulting in an extremely minimalist midsole.”
adidas has also stated that the Futurecraft STRUNG will not be made commercially available but has a target launch date for early 2022. Development will continue over the next year.
