Stock­ist: adi­das.com While this shoe isn’t a light­weight or rac­ing shoe, it is high per­for­mance in that it’s at the very pin­na­cle of footwear tech­nol­ogy and de­sign.

The mid­sole is a sin­gle com­po­nent which fea­tures pre­cisely engi­neered zones which ad­dress the dif­fer­ent needs of run­ning, such as propul­sion, cush­ion­ing, sta­bil­ity, and com­fort. The mid­sole has over 20,000 struts that can be in­di­vid­u­ally tuned to pro­vide more con­trol or en­ergy re­turn. Tak­ing data from an in­di­vid­ual’s foot, based on weight, run­ning gait and sup­port re­quire­ments, fu­ture shoes will be tai­lor-made specif­i­cally for in­di­vid­u­als.

The up­per fea­tures heat-pressed, TPU-coated fi­bres that are stitched to pro­vide tar­geted sup­port and light­weight dura­bil­ity. Again this unique de­sign and the man­u­fac­tur­ing process can be highly tai­lored to in­di­vid­ual needs.

These tech­nolo­gies will be com­bined into the footwear man­u­fac­tur­ing of the fu­ture to cre­ate truly unique shoes as spe­cific to the run­ner’s foot as the ath­lete them­selves.
