Since the dawn of the adidas Futurecraft 4D back in 2017, sneakerheads everywhere had only one thing in mind: Will this innovative midsole ever come to the Yeezy?! Well, during Kanye West’s recent interview with Forbes, he unveiled hundreds of never-before-seen Yeezy samples and prototypes, and for a split second only, eagle eyed viewers spotted a pair of Yeezy 700s decked out with 4D technology!
Crafted from light and oxygen through Digital Light Synthesis, Futurecraft 4D tech is based on years of athlete data and is designed to provide controlled energy return. Recently crowned by Time Magazine as one of the best inventions of the modern era, you can clearly see the upcoming Yeezy 700 VX sitting atop a stealthy Futurecraft 4D unit, replacing the chunky Boost midsole that we’ve all come to love.
While this is far from being confirmed, it’s great to see that Ye is experimenting on other technologies for his highly coveted line of sneakers. We have never seen 4D used on existing silhouettes, so this might be the first one ever. With that said, the Yeezy 700 retails for £250 already, so combining it with Futurecraft will definitely double the price, so if these actually drop in the future, expect to pay on upwards of £500 for a pair!
Would you cop the Yeezy 700 4D? Is it about time that Kanye West moved away from Boost and adiPRENE in favour of something else? Let us know what you think, and while you’re here, be sure to take a look at the full adidas sneaker range!
