adidas has been pushing to make its 4D tech more accessable in the lifestyle sphere over the course of 2020, and the latest product of that experimentation is the IIM 4D, a shoe that’s surfaced in a gray and yellow colorway. Joining other Trefoil silhouettes like the ZX 2K 4D and the Ultra4D, the IIM 4D’s build is centered around its latticed, 3D-printed midsole. However, it also features a swath of other appealing design points.

Knit uppers combine a light gray base with two types of yellow accents: muted on the midfoot, vibrant on the toebox. This color scheme, knit construction with a sock-like collar and perforations on the quarter panels and forefoot offer slight shades of Kanye West‘s adidas YEEZY BOOST 380. On the other hand, a wild lacing system that features embroidered anchors and tubular detailing seems to pull inspiration from Y-3 styles like the Shiku or RUNNER 4D II.

Midsoles present a significantly more trim look than most other 4D sneakers, thanks in large part to a full-foot translucent TPU sheath that brings stability to the upper and encases part of the footbed’s latticed build. Dressed in a pale shade of yellow, the 4D midsole is constructed using adidas’ proprietary Digital Light Synthesis tech, which combines light and oxygen into a solid, supportive cushioning setup. An interesting vertical tread pattern completes the look.

A release date for the adidas IIM 4D in gray and yellow has yet to be announced, but it’ll likely arrive towards the tail end of 2020 or in the beginning of 2021.
