Ever wish you could simply own an athletic shoe that does it all? Athletes can attest to the difficulties of finding a shoe for every type of work out; a one size fits all performance sneaker. Now, Under Armour has addressed this longstanding issue with their 3D-printed shoes to give wearers a more scalable option when purchasing their athletic wear.

These new Architect multipurpose trainers are aimed at athletes looking to participate in a range of activities without needing to switch shoes. To do so, they enlisted help from Autodesk’s generative design software, called AutoDesk Within. The software powers through a series of complex algorithms to create an optimal design based on maximum stress, weight, flexibility and durability. The result was a latticed, 3D-printed midsole fitted to the shoe. Under Armour claims this provides athletes with the ultimate stability and cushioning during diverse active engagement. They’re set for a limited edition release on March 18 for around $300. [Purchase]
