Midsoles from Light and Oxygen

Midsoles from Light and Oxygen

You don’t need anything fancy to create a state-of-the-art high-performance midsole, just light and oxygen.

adidas recently unveiled a line of footwear called Futurecraft 4D, which features featuring midsoles crafted using Digital Light Synthesis, a technology pioneered by technology company Carbon.

Digital Light Synthesis uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to generate high-performance, durable polymeric products.

The Futurecraft 4D is crafted from 17 years of running data, and the midsoles are brought to functional reality through a process that eliminated the necessity of traditional prototyping or moulding.

Furthermore, Digital Light Synthesis allows adidas to precisely address the needs of each athlete in regards to movement, cushioning, stability, and comfort with one single component. Carbon’s unique programmable resin platform offers performance with respect to material durability and elastomeric responsiveness.

In other words, adidas can create shoes that is made to exact specifications or for an exact purpose.

Said Eric Liedtke, adidas Group Executive Board Member Responsible For Global Brands, said: “With Digital Light Synthesis, we venture beyond limitations of the past, unlocking a new era in design and manufacturing. One driven by athlete data and agile manufacturing processes. By charting a new course for our industry, we can unleash our creativity- transforming not just what we make, but how we make it.”
