Model: Runner 4D
Key Features: Y-3’s Runner 4D sneakers were first shown at Paris Fashion Week, showing Y-3’s first-ever use of 4D technology in a non-performance context, alongside a Primeknit upper. Created in collaboration with American firm Carbon, the sole unit was constructed with Digital Light Synthesis, which uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to generate high performance, durable polymeric products.
Release Date: February 23, 2018
Price: 490 EUR / $550 USD
Editor’s Notes: Carbon and adidas’s 4D sole unit was previously used in Futurecraft releases like the highly-limited Futurecraft 4D. More Futurecraft releases should be slated for later this year, including a Daniel Arsham collaboration.
