Adidas Alphaedge 4D Review

Over time, Adidas begins to think outside the box and create innovative shoes. The Adidas Alphaedge 4D features a 3D printed Futurecraft midsole that provides stability and support. The use of the latest shoe technology also means that this shoe is more durable than most others.

What users love about this style is that it is flexible and reflects energy with every turn. The single eyelid wraps the top of the foot, allowing air to circulate and the legs to breathe.

It has a comfortable fit and allows your feet to move while you run. If you want more durability in the sole, this model will be soft and flexible on hard concrete.

The color options are very limited and the price is quite surprising. However, if you want to be a leader in shoe technology, the Adidas Alphaedge 4D is a great option.

Adidas Alphaedge 4D Review


  • 3D printed Futurecraft midsole
  • Excellent adhesion of rubber to smooth surfaces.
  • Unique diamond-based frame
  • Lightweight and lightweight primeknit upper
  • 10 mm drop


What sets this model apart from the rest is the structure of the midsole. It is made of 3D Futurecraft material patented by Adidas. Futurecraft is made of reusable TPU and is very durable.

This midsole is designed for people with a normal arch. The midsole design combined with low and high upper arch plates is comfortable and attractive.

It should be noted that some users find this midsole a bit narrower than most others.

As these shoes are not half the size, it may be better to choose a smaller size.


This unique model may be unlike anything you’ve seen before. It is made of 3D printed diamond eyes. These diamonds are further away from the heel (so you can see through the heel!) And perfectly on the toes.

This design offers better control at the end of the walk and a flexible heel that absorbs shock when moving on hard surfaces.

Plus, it has a very slim profile, so you don’t have to worry about stones getting stuck under your boots.


The upper part may look like a normal eye, but this design is a bit strange. It is made of a very soft and light forged fiber material like cotton.

The material is flexible enough to comfortably fit most feet without being too tight. In addition, it has ingenious vents that keep feet cool and dry even on long runs in hot weather.

It has a high, durable, textured heel arch to provide excellent heel protection.

Although this hard heel is itchy, it is comfortable for the owner and does not irritate the skin.


We found that this shoe weighs more than some of the other options in the Adidas sneaker range. Since the sole is printed in one piece, it is slightly heavier than the others.

The piano is light, airy, and moves with your feet. The sole offers more cushioning and flexibility, but some users find the excess weight less than ideal.


Many users prefer the Futurecraft 4D style of this shoe. It has very limited fiber styling on the top and a simple bezel on the bottom.

The classic 3-part Adidas logo is placed directly on the tongue. There is also an Adidas logo on the side of the heel.

Color options are limited and some find the design of this option quite simple.


This shoe has A + durability because the sole is 3D printed. This means that the base is made from a single strong and durable piece, rather than multiple pieces.

Removing the glue increases the life of the shoe. This shoe allows you to travel hundreds of miles without the usual wear and tear of a normal shoe.


The structured high heel protects your Achilles tendon every step of the way without chafing. The fibrous portion that extends to the upper edges is shaped like a leg to keep it comfortably in place. In addition, the use of limited orthotics prevents the top of the foot from collapsing.

The Futurecraft midsole is strong and durable on a lock-in mount to prevent overload and fatigue over long distances. There it offers great flexibility without limiting the entire flight path.


Users prefer this model because it provides runners with a wealth of stimulating feedback at each stage. The open skeletal structure of the heel is visually destroyed under pressure and relieves the joints.

If you are looking for a shoe that will give you a jump when walking on hard surfaces, a 3D printed heel is one of the best options. While the heel is open and flexible, skeleton diamonds sit behind the tip of the toe for a firm start.


For those looking for strong support on the road, this is a great option. The 3D printed open structure provides assistance when needed. The heel absorbs a lot of impact at the start of the walk and the forefoot is firm and rigid to ensure a safe start at the end of the stride.

While the upper is soft and comfortable, the heel is made from durable driving material that provides excellent support without touching the heel.

Please note that this model is unfortunately not half size. If your shoe size is half your size, we recommend purchasing shoes that are larger than normal to ensure a comfortable fit.


The frame of this design is relatively rigid, but not large enough to restrict freedom of movement. The durable sole is made with materials that follow the natural movement of your steps and provide adequate support.

Note that some users find the midsole smaller than most, which makes it a bit uncomfortable when you start to break it.


Key design features give the foot an ideal range of motion and a better sense of stability. A solid foundation for 3D printing creates a solid foundation. The design adapts well to the toe and less to the heel. This provides a stable start and softens the heel.

The upper part wraps your legs tightly so you don’t move with every step. The straps adjust to a slightly lower foot for greater freedom of movement.

If you are ahead of shoe technology and willing to pay a higher price, the Adidas Alphaedge 4D is definitely worth a try.

The 3D printed Futurecraft midsole offers excellent response and support. It is also more durable than other options on the market.

Please note that this model is not available in half sizes. If your shoe size is half the size, you can buy the largest size instead of the smallest. This is because the midsole can be too snug, so the larger size provides a comfortable ride.

We love the unique structure of the base frame, although it doesn’t come in different colors and styles. It is unlike anything on the market and will definitely catch the eye of other runners in the gym or outdoors.
