Carbon + adidas Collaborate to Upend Athletic Footwear

adidas and Carbon leveraged 17 years of runner data to design a high-performance running shoe midsole that cannot be produced with traditional manufacturing. Using Carbon’s advanced elastomeric materials, adidas created a tuneable lattice structure that marked a new era in footwear design, driven by athlete data and agile manufacturing.

“With Digital Light Synthesis, we venture beyond limitations of the past, unlocking a new era in design and manufacturing. One driven by athlete data and agile manufacturing processes. By charting a new course for our industry, we can unleash our creativity — transforming not just what we make, but how we make it.”
Eric Liedtke Executive Board Member — Global Brands, adidas
