Mass production of 3D printed shoes may soon be a reality with Adidas. With a sizeable retail market to bank upon, the brand will introduce 100,000 pairs of shoes. The 3D technology has been created by a Silicon Valley startup, Carbon, and with enough printers available by Q3 the production will be ramped up. The shoe features an engineered 3D web structure with dense and low dense zones in high and low force areas. The shoe allows optimum level of performance with greater elasticity, compliance and support.
