After unveiling Futurecraft last October, adidas has taken its 3D-printed kicks to new heights this year, offering up a sleek “Triple Black” rendition of the shoe — one that features a modified upper that’s more in line with the Ultra Boost than the original — to its Olympic athletes in Rio. So could the unique kicks have a release sooner rather than later?

Newly surfaced imagery would apparently suggest so. A number of adidas employees and influencers have been taking to social media over the past few days to offer up closer looks at the design, as well as some of the first on-foot pics of the Futurecraft tech. While the initial design to employ the technology still doesn’t seem to have a concrete name (Futurecraft actually refers to the 3D-printing tech itself, though it may end up being the name of the very first Futurecraft release), the kicks are virtually the same as the concept that was shown off last year and pair a tonal 3D-printed sole unit with an Ultra Boost-like upper that comes sans cage or external heel counter.

Enjoy the latest look at the shoe here and stay tuned for more info regarding public availability.
