The Parley x adidas AlphaEDGE 4D is reminiscent of Daniel Arsham’s FUTURECRAFT 4D, as it continues the color of the sole unit through to its reworked upper. The tonal “Aero Green” upper is made from woven Primeknit and features reinforced pleats on the lateral and medial midfoot sections. Tonal TPU plates reinforce the upper around the heel and eyelet, with the former plate sporting an adidas logo.
As usual for adidas 4D models, the sole unit steals the show. Printed from light and oxygen using Carbon Digital Light Synthesis, the sole unit is a lattice-weave construction and is lined with a Continental outsole, making for a highly durable, performance-focused running shoe.
To be in with a chance of picking up a pair, head to the adidas app from May 31 to June 8, where the Parley and previously-seen White AlphaEDGE 4D’s will be available in limited quantities.
For more soon-coming adidas, take a look at the Three Stripes’ dip-dyed LXCON’s for SS19.
