Have you heard anything about the Adidas Futurecraft 4D yet? If you haven’t, you don’t know what you’re missing out on. Assuming that you don’t yet know what this product is, it’s safe to say that it’s easily one of the most futuristic footwear designs that’s ever been produced, hands down. Coming from Adidas, you know that it’s going to be a product that’s capable of getting the job done, but even if you’re a huge fan of the company, you’re probably going to be surprised at just how unique this particular shoe really is.
For starters, you know that you’re looking at something that’s entirely different from anything else on the market the minute you see the Futurecraft 4D. It has a unique green hue to it that makes it look like it’s something from 200 or even 300 years into the future, but there’s so much more to it. As you look closer, you begin to realize that this doesn’t really look like any shoe that’s ever been produced before, nor does it perform like one.
The reason that the shoe looks so different is because of the way it’s constructed. Adidas calls it Primeknit, which is a fancy way of saying that the shoe is constructed a lot more like a high-quality sock than anything else. As a matter of fact, it’s engineered to fit your foot just like a sock would, adding to your level of comfort and allowing the shoe to literally hug your foot with each and every movement. Imagine what it would be like to be able to flex your foot and have your shoe follow along without slipping off or creating some void spaces that are uncomfortable, at best. In addition, you don’t have to worry about this particular shoe creating any blisters. Since the entire shoe is fluid and moves with you, it’s not constantly battling against you with each and every step that you take.
If you think that the material and construction techniques used to create the body of the shoe itself are interesting, wait until you find out how they manufacture the sole. They utilize a unique process that integrates oxygen and rays of light in order to create a unique composite product that marries perfectly to the Primeknit on the body. What does all of this mean for you when you’re actually wearing the shoe? In a nutshell, it means that the sole moves with you just as easily as the rest of the shoe, yet it also provides you with an unprecedented amount of support. Up until now, this was something that was virtually impossible. The soles of shoes were either supportive or flexible, but it’s very rare that you find one that’s capable of handling both of those roles equally well.
The problem with a lot of shoes that are designed to fit your foot like a glove is that they don’t provide any type of support whatsoever, not to mention failing to protect your feet if you step on a rock or sharp object. Shoes have been marketed in the past as products that fit like a sock, but there was the problem. They really did behave more like a sock than a shoe. Clearly, that’s not something that works very well when you’re walking around outdoors. This product is different. It really does hug your foot just like a sock would do, but the unique sole is what makes all the difference. It gives you the chance to enjoy the best of both worlds. You get all the comfort of a shoe that’s capable of hugging your foot, but you don’t have to give up that flexibility and support that you would get in a high-quality sole. In other words, feel free to run around outside all you want without worrying about injuring your foot when you step on something.
When it’s all said and done, the end result is a product that’s capable of allowing you to be comfortable no matter what type of environment you’re in. Unless you’re in a profession where you need to wear heavy boots with thick soles or those boots need to come halfway up your calf muscle, this is a shoe that will work well for you no matter what you’re doing. It has an unprecedented level of comfort and it performs well in a wide variety of different situations, meaning that you can wear these shoes for a walk around the block or playing an impromptu game of basketball with friends in the neighborhood. Either way, the shoes will serve you equally well.
