Concepts and Under Armour Present Tom Brady with 3D Printed ArchiTech Futurist

Boston-based, now international, sneaker boutique Concepts has linked with Under Armour to produce an extremely limited sneaker that honors Tom Brady and his historic fifth Super Bowl win during the 2016 – 2017 NFL season.

Deon Point, work hard/party hard frontman and general manager of Concepts, got to present the unique sneaker to Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium (if that ain’t a lifetime achievement type moment, I don’t know what is). According to Point, every detail from the tissue paper to the box will pay homage to Brady and his legacy.

Interestingly, Tom Brady was one of the Under Armour athletes to weartest the 3D printed tooling of the ArchiTech Futurist prior to its release. According to an Under Armour designer that spoke with us on the condition of anonymity, it takes one full day to print the midsole unit on the ArchiTech Futurist due to its complexity.

This ‘Tom Brady’ 3D printed Under Armour ArchiTech Futurist will be limited to just 100 pairs worldwide. It will launch exclusively at Concepts Cambridge at 10 AM EDT for the New England Patriots’ season opener on September 7. Remaining pairs will land online at 11 AM EDT. While no price has been announced, the ArchiTech Futurist retails for $300 normally.

  1. One whole day to print because of it’s complexity. More like one whole day because they are stuck with the wrong machines because whoever was in charge of 3D printing at UA never did their homework. Adidas print in minutes and UA print in a whole day. This is clearly a lame attempt to try and salvage some PR after wasting money on the wrong tech.

    1. As you may know, adidas has been exploring 3D printing for years now. We, the general public, have not gotten results. While several “results” have been showcased, we’ve also been hearing about the ATL SPEEDFACTORY for years now. I don’t see many results from ///, but I’m excited for what’s coming, whenever it is actually coming.
