Adidas & The ISS Team Up On A Series Of Space-Age Sneakers

Dec 2, 2019

Category: Style

Adidas has never had an issue with its innovative reputation. Over the years, breakthroughs in running and textile technologies have served to bolster the company’s standing as one of the industry’s most progressive footwear proprietor — so progressive, in fact, that earlier this year, the International Space Station U.S. National Lab announced that they’d be partnering with the brand to “innovate, learn, and share information with the vision of co-creating the future of sports performance.”

Now, the two companies have revealed their latest collaborative effort — a selection of Ultraboost running sneakers that have been upgraded with the venture’s Tailored Fiber Placement (TFP) technology for an upcoming mission to the International Space Station. This unique design principle brings the shoe’s fibers within a millimeter of one another, resulting in a lightweight silhouette that’s been precisely stitched and constructed. A 3D Heel Frame, Primeknit upper, and Stretchweb outsole provide unparalleled performance, response, and support for wearers, while tasteful accents like an ISS U.S. National Laboratory space patch help to catapult the sneakers to even greater heights. The shoes are slated for launch on December 6 and will arrive in a handful of limited-edition colorways fit for the stylish consumer.
