Take It Forward With the Latest Data-driven 3D Printed Performance Technology – ADIDAS 4DFWD


adidas Running introduces the latest iteration of adidas 4DFWD – the next step in data-driven 3D printed midsole technology, designed to move you forward.

Combining years of athlete data with the unique technology of 3D printing, adidas 4DFWD is created to provide runners with an all-new running experience. Following its initial limited release in May and a special solar red and white colorway released last month, adidas 4DFWD is now launching globally with a striking hero core black colorway featuring signal green accents.


For over four years, adidas has developed 4D lattice midsole technology in partnership with Carbon, combining athlete data and Carbon’s Digital Light SynthesisTM technology to produce precision tuned 3D printed midsoles. adidas 4D footwear is amongst the first in the world to use this cutting-edge technology which offers the ability to fine tune midsoles to specific patterns of movement, so that athletes can enjoy precision performance with every step. Identified from one of five million possible lattice structures, the 4DFWD is made with nature. The midsole consists of 40% natural and renewable materials with the intent to help end plastic waste.
