Three years ago, New Balance started a teaming up with Formlabs—the most prominent 3D printing experts in the space—to create superior materials for their fitness footwear. The result of their collaboration will debut in the New Balance 990 Sport TripleCell Shoes.
Made in the USA, the 990 Sport will feature TripleCell technology in the form of 3D-printed heels created with resilient, high-rebound photopolymer resin. Thanks to the innovative technology, the shoes provide you with ultra-light cushioning with improved support and a modernized design. The shoes also present a breathable mono mesh, as well as ENCAP midsole technology for superior durability. In addition to the novel tech, New Balance revamps the classic 990 shoe silhouette, making it sleeker while still preserving what you love about the design. The TripleCell technology will also be featured in the FuelCell Echo, which will hit shelves on September 15. However, you can pick up a pair of the 990 Sport TripleCell right now for $185.
