Your casual Friday street style is about to get A LOT faster because the new adidas 4DFWD is a REAL running shoe. It’s sustainable, it’s sexy and it’s FAST.
The 4DFWD utilizes data driven technology that combines more than 17 years of athlete insights and carbon technology. This technology produces a precision tuned 3D printed midsole which offers runners support and comfort.
The new 4DFWD lattice is a totally redesigned 3D printed midsole that translates vertical impact from your down step into forward momentum, so you’re literally pushing yourself forward.
The midsole features a unique bowtie-shaped FWD cell which redirects energy from each step’s impact to create horizontal forward motion.
The 4DFWD midsole provides runners with a super-lightweight premium upper that encases the foot in seamless sock-like fit.
Adidas uses historical mapping data to code the PRIMEKNIT upper to perfectly alight with the unique properties of the 4DFWD midsole. This mapping gives runners all the support and comfort they need while running.

The rubber outsole is designed to work in harmony with the adidas 4DFWD midsole, providing superior traction for athletes.
The braking force experienced by the athlete during running is reduced on average by 15%as the midsole redirects these vertical impact forces into horizontal forward motion–delivering running economy comparable to that of Ultraboost midsoles in lab conditions.
ADIDAS 4DFWD CONS
This is a great shoe from adidas, but at a price point of $200 and a weight of 11.7 oz it’s a bit on the high end of it’s comparable counterparts.
