Marc Dolce, VP and Creative Director at adidas, teased what he is calling “the future of basketball.”
According to Dolce, the future of basketball will include Futurecraft 4D printed midsoles and support pieces, yet still ride atop good old fashioned herringbone. The shoe is certainly minimalist, with no laces in sight — what Dolce calls “laceless basketball.” There is also no obvious heel counter, although there could be something internal.
No more details regarding the Futurecraft 4D basketball sneaker are available but when we know more we’ll update you. If the shoe retails for $300, like all of the Futurecraft 4D silhouettes adidas has released thus far, it certainly won’t be the future of basketball for everyone.
