The Element of Carbon Moves to Capture 3D Printing Industry Records

Adidas has announced recently that their Futurecraft 4D will be the first mass-market show to break into the mainstream.

The Futurecraft 4D is currently in production, and has been making big strides with their use of carbon to construct the shoes.

In the past, Adidas has worked with different forms of 3D printing to refine and redefine traditional shoemaking methods.
