When adidas Originals debuted the 3D-printed sole-equipped Futurecraft back in 2015, the Three Stripes sent sneakerheads all over the world in a spin, and now the sportswear giant has provided us with a throwback of sorts in the form of a 4D Futurecraft “Cream.”

Comprised of a “Crystal White/Chalk White/Core Black” colorway, this “Cream” pair features similar hues to one of the first 3D-printed sneakers to drop from adidas. Differentiating today’s version from the 2015 pair is the sole unit, as this new offering sports the brand’s signature 4D construction that’s made using light, oxygen, and resin, and features a different kind of weave as opposed to the dense-looking structure of a 3D sole unit.

Elsewhere, we find a much brighter white Primeknit upper that’s similar to that of the UltraBOOST 1.0, while Three Stripes have been added into the weave using a yellow-white tone that’s reminiscent of its 4D sole unit. Touches of 3M light up the Three Stripes and the adidas-branded tongue tag, while clean white laces and a white interior (with Futurecraft branding in black) round out the sneaker.

All-in-all, the result is a fair tribute to one of the shoes that kickstarted adidas’ foray into printed sole units, rather than it being a faithful recreation which we’re sure many sneakerheads would rather see. Take a look at the adidas Originals 4D Futurecraft “Cream” above, and expect it to drop at stockists such as solebox on September 7, costing just under €185 EUR (approximately $218 USD) before shipping costs to the U.S.

In case you missed it, here’s a closer look at the Air Jordan 1 “Dark Marina Blue.”
