Last month, adidas unveiled Futurecraft 3D, the world's first 3D-printed running shoe midsole. The Three-Stripes follows up that feat with the Futurecraft Leather, a digital milling technique developed by adidas, industrial designer Alexander Taylor and shoe designer Joachim de Callatay. The technology uses a single piece of leather, gently stripping away at the material to sculpt a precision-engineered fit, as well as the added benefit of drastically reducing that amount of adhesives used. The resulting seamless upper is milled to varying thickness levels, providing flexibility and stability exactly where it's needed. In honor of the 45th anniversary of the Superstar, adidas has made a Futurecraft Leather version of the shoe. 45 pairs will be available at Dover Street Market in New York, London and Tokyo beginning November 7, 2015.
