For their second Futurecraft silhouette, adidas turned their attention to BioSteel fiber. Seven times stronger than regular steel, BioSteel was used throughout the sneaker’s upper. The material’s all-natural, 15% lighter than conventional synthetic materials and much, much more supportive.
Building off two previous projects (the MFG Futurecraft and Parley for the Oceans UltraBoost), the “Biofabric” continues the Three Stripes quest to create unique and environmentally friendly sneakers.
The shoe was unveiled at the renowned Biofabricate Conference in New York as adidas and AMSilk announced a partnership that will explore the use of BioSteel fiber in performance products on a larger scale.
There’s no release date for the “Biofabric” at the moment. Check out pictures up top.
