adidas‘s 4D-printed technology was one of the footwear world’s biggest innovations in the latter half of the 2010s, and now it’s kicking the 2020s off with a bang thanks to a new 4D Run 1.0 silhouette. Combining top-tier technology with a vibrant “Signal Coral” launch colorway, the 4D Run 1.0 is the next step in the brand’s 3D-printed efforts.
Composed of a speedy athletic mesh, the shoe’s upper offers a sleek shape that’s reminiscent of other high-end adidas Running footwear. The “Signal Coral” accents are applied in an intentionally blotchy fashion that’s somewhere between an abstract nod to animal print and airbrush graphics. Fused overlays appear on the heel and toebox, while a white heel clip and collar add airy contrast. Branding is provided by a smooth Three Stripe graphic on the midfoot and a small logo on the heel.
Below this warm weather-ready upper sits a full-foot 4D midsole, dressed in a signature “Aero Green” shade. Lightweight and supportive, its intricate latticed construction provides a serious, technical construction to contrast the light-hearted top half. Icy orange outsoles finalize the stylings.
The adidas 4D Run 1.0 “Signal Coral” is available now via the adidas webstore for $250 USD, $50-$100 less than most other 4D-equipped footwear.
If a more stealthy style is up your alley, a special UltraBOOST 20 “007” fit for James Bond himself surfaced ahead of the official ‘No Time To Die’ premiere.
