    Forefoot Zone: Structure designed to propel runner forward.
    In addition, the midsoles unique open structure allows the runner for enhanced breathability underfoot. Primeknit upper adds seamless comfort through a sock-like fit and engineered ventilation zones, while Continental outsoles provide optimal grip.

    “FUTURECRAFT 4D demonstrates the potential of Digital Light Synthesis in unlocking a new era in sport performance design. One driven by athlete data and incomparable precision to provide the best for the athletes, enabling them to make a difference in their run. This innovation changes how we design and free ourselves from limitations of the past. The possibilities of what we can now create with this technology to push the boundaries of performance is truly endless”
