And you thought a Gold Medal would be an athlete’s prized possession at this year’s Olympics. adidas is giving a select few of their sponsored Olympians exclusive tailor-made pairs of the 3D-printed adidas Futurecraft should they win a medal in Rio.
The adidas Futurecraft is a truly one of a kind silhouette. The breathable Primeknit upper is only the half of it too. The outsole unit is crafted through the futuristic technology of 3D-printing based on the contours and unique arches of a particular athlete’s foot. The made-to-order offering is engineered through a 3D web construction and ditches the traditional glue and stitch process. This methodology also lands on the supportive heel.
The Triple Black adidas Futurecraft 3D will also feature unique accents on the laces, as they will be speckled with either metallic gold, silver, or bronze accents to represent the medal won by the athlete recieving the exclusive pair.
