3D printed sneakers are here.
The shoe will be called "Futurecraft 4D." Adidas hopes to sell 5,000 of them this year and as many as 100,000 next year. Carbon says it currently takes an hour and a half to print one of the soles, but it hopes to get that down to as little as 20 minutes per sole.
"The product is ultimately tunable," Liedtke said. "The way it's created from light and oxygen through software design, you could get down into the individual component cells and adjust the strengthth, durability, and the shape" says Adidas Group Executive Board Member Eric Liedtke
