5. New Balance 3D-Printed Running Shoe
3D printers are all the rage these days. And now, you can get a pair of 3D-printed running shoes. While other brands have dipped their toes in to the 3D waters, New Balance announced that they’ll be launching their first high performance running shoe with a 3D printed midsole in Boston in April 2016. “Most ‘3D-printed shoes’ made to date are rigid and heavy—and not appropriate for running. The midsole that New Balance is producing represents a real breakthrough in balancing flexibility, strength, weight and durability, not just within the 3D printing of footwear, but 3D printing overall,” the company says in a press release.
