Adidas has unveiled the Futurecraft Leather Superstar, which releases via a limited 45-pair run on Nov. 7, 2015, at Dover Street Market in New York, London and Tokyo.
The sneaker’s upper borrows a digital milling process from the world of industrial manufacturing to create a seamless leather piece. This approach allows adidas greater precision in creating bespoke footwear, which can be milled to different thicknesses at different parts of the shoe to meet the demands of athletes.
Futurecraft Leather embodies adidas’ desire to bring in outside collaborators for the Futurecraft program, having been created in conjunction with industrial designer Alexander Taylor and shoe designer Joachim de Callatay.
