Sneaker News has shown you a ton of sample designs over the years, some of the more intriguing of which have been created using Z-Corp 3D printers. These prototypes give designers an idea of what their drawings look like in real world conditions, but now they’re ready to take the next leap. Nike was responsible for all of those aforementioned samples and led the way with the 3D-printed Vapor Laser Talon Cleat, and now New Balance gets out of the blocks early with the first such track spikes.

New Balance Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) uses biomechanical data, motion capture, high speed video, sophisticated softwear and embedded sensors to transfer the strides of Olympians and World Champions into precisely what they need to go even faster. All-American runner Jack Bolas became the first to wear a 3D-printed shoe in competition at January’s New Balance Games and now we wait on word for a consumer release. In the meantime, have a closer look below and let us know how you imagine 3D printing and other new technologies changing the sneaker world.
