Adidas Futurecraft Biofabric

Adidas sure has been on an environmentally friendly kick as of late. It has just been announced that the brand’s barely year-old silhouette, the Futurecraft, is getting an updated release featuring a unique fabric called ‘Biosteel’, hence the name ‘Adidas Futurecraft Biofabric’.

The athletic wear giant built this shoe in collaboration with a company called AMSilk GmbH. AMSilk has created a special synthetic silk made from biopolymers that they’ve named ‘Biosteel’. Biosteel is 15 percent lighter than conventional fabrics today, just as strong, and 100% biodegradable. Adidas used this special fabric to build the entirety of the upper on this shoe, weaving it into a breathable yet supportive mesh pattern and mating it with their Boost mid. As or right now, this shoe is only a concept, and was unveiled specifically for Biofabricate, an annual summit for design using ‘grown materials. If the release of the Parley shoes tells us anything, however, there sure could be a chance that these make their way to stores all around the world.
