Getting past your comfort zone can be hard, so at least wear comfortable shoes for the long journey. We aren’t talking about the journey of life, but running. Adidas has launched the 4DFWD and 4DFWD Pulse, a pair of running shoes with 3D-printed midsoles. The brand claims to have collected years of athlete data to come up with a so-called perfect midsole for runners. You get the now-familiar lattice structures made using Carbon’s Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) technology that compress with vertical impact. Adidas claims this design generates three times as much forward motion that also translates to 15% average reduction of peak braking force. The latest running shoes will be available from August 12, priced at ₹15,999 and ₹19,999 respectively.
