The release of the adidas Futurecraft Biofabric shoe comes in a year where adidas has released a series of products that have pushed the boundaries of sneaker innovation. These include the Futurecraft Tailored Fibre, which utilised revolutionary manufacturing techniques to enable unique footwear designs and the Futurecraft M.F.G., the first product to be created at adidas’ industry-changing SPEEDFACTORY facility.

These cutting edge product developments have been complimented by adidas’ commitment to sustainability, with its relationship with Parley for the Oceans having led to the release of the first mass produced footwear created using Parley Ocean Plastic, the UltraBOOST Uncaged Parley.
