All things Futurecraft are keeping sneakerheads on the edges of their seats. Today, adidas announces the Futurecraft Biosteel, which features a completely biodegradable fabric upper that replicates natural silk. The fiber is nature-based and developed by German biotech company AMSilk, and is 15% lighter than conventional synthetic fibers. The shoes were unveiled today at the renowned Biofabricate Conference in NYC, with adidas’ burgeoning partnership with AMSilk aims to further explore the use of Biosteel fiber in performance products.
There is no release information yet for this new Boost-based running shoe, but rather this is just another notch on a historic year for adidas that already produced some amazing innovations like the Futurecraft Tailored Fibre, Parley x Ultra Boost, and more.
