Under Armour first released its limited edition 3D-printed Architech shoes last year, making available just 96 pairs to the general public. If you missed out (you probably did), UA is gearing up to offer its new Futurist shoes that use the same technology. That means its latest release will feature a 3D-printed “dynamic lattice network” that is designed to provide unparalleled comfort and support. Big promises from a shoe company looking to set itself apart from established players in this space.
So what does the dynamic lattice tech bring to your feet? Under Armour says that by going the 3D-printer route, it can create a stabilization system that supports heavy weight lifting activities and more movement-heavy exercises. The proprietary UA Speedform Upper features a memory-like molding capability that re-adjusts to your feet each time the pair of shoes are slipped on. Regardless of the tech and marketing lingo mentioned here, it’s pretty cool to see 3D-printing tech continue to make in-roads in this product category. Interested in UA’s latest release? You’ll need to be ready to buy the $300 pair of shoes on March 30th at 6PM for a chance.
The UA ArchiTech Futurist is a marvel of design, weaving together Under Armour’s past, present, and future of changing the way athletes dress. With fit-centric innovations that deliver the signature Under Armour feel and underfoot technology that redefines support, you are about to feel all-powerful. Center-placed ¼ zipper for a tailored fit and seamless feel. Dynamic lattice network provides infinite cushioning and support. Molds perfectly to your foot to deliver zero distractions.
