New Balance is all set to introduce a range of 3D-printed sneakers that feature special midsoles that will change the way you walk and run forever.

These midsoles were crafted together taking into accoutn the inputs of runners and biomechanics experts. The end goal was to find a solid balance between flexibility and strength, which is exactly what these 3D-printed sneakers achieve. The midsoles in particular accommodate individual runners' styles, with greater cushioning on show around those areas that absorb more pressure and impact.

New Balance's 3D-printed sneakers are giving sneakerheads, runners and athletes the opportunity to look beyond the big two sneaker brands using technology and a focus on comfort and performance. These shoes speak to the ability of 3D printing to offer different performance functions without compromising on any one function, while delivering performance advantages to the wearer.
