Adidas does not take performance lightly, always aiming to best its own record and that of competing names. Despite its proud selection that appeals to all tastes, sizes and needs, some of which have become deeply embedded in both sneaker history and pop culture, the German brand remains dedicated to taking it to the next level. Following its much talked about Futurecraft 3D follows the Futurecraft 4D, promising to give users a return in their energy through the soles that are made with oxygen and light.

Release date: 2017
The Futurecraft 4D sneaker was a product of the partnership between Adidas and Carbon, the latter a firm based in California credited for the incorporating digital light synthesis into Adidas kicks. It was first released in 2017 with mint-green color for a midsole, which proved to be popular even though the brand already had Yeezys and Boost-equipped sneakers to sell. Still, the promise of a noticeably improved experience to runners remained enticing. Soon enough, the pair was offered in more colorways.
The attractiveness of the shoes may be subjective, but what cannot be denied is the instant attention it gets for its futuristic, and honestly a little odd, appearance. The perforations by the sole stand out in all of the options offered, regardless of the colors. But they serve more function than just aesthetics as this, as well as what’s beyond what the eye can immediately see, allow for the springiness one can feel when wearing the pair. They immediately come back to their old form even when pressure is applied. This, in turn, also gives the feet comfort through adequate cushioning and stability, not that much different from what Boost-enabled Adidas shoes are offering. The Futurecraft 4Ds are as breathable as they look, and you won’t be worrying about pruney toes and smelly feet even after a day of running and sweating.
The technology employed on the shoes will truly make them desirable pairs for runners, but copping them is no easy feat. The Futurecraft 4D sneakers have only been released in small quantities and as of the moment, we have not had any news about any releases in the future. That can make these potentially be resold at a much higher value given its rarity. It is still notably pricier even when an original stock; the 4Ds will set you back at least a hundred dollars more than what is offered elsewhere, and if you’re not a very dedicated runner, you may not reap all of the benefits that these innovative shoes offer.
