Under Armour 3D printed lattice-soled trainers

March 20th, 2016 by retail design blog

American company Under Armour has joined the list of sportswear brands incorporating 3D printing into shoes with the launch of lattice-soled trainers designed to be suitable for any sport. According to Under Armour, the lattice midsole of the Architect trainer creates a “unique anatomical heel structure”. This red portion of the shoe is designed to cushion the foot regardless of the sport being played, and offer better stability than hard midsoles.

The company used Autodesk’s Within software to create the footwear, setting specific requirements for cushioning and weight before running the design through an algorithm to generate thousands of alternatives. The shoe will be available for $300 (£212), in a limited edition of 96 pairs to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary. The brand said that it plans to release further 3D-printed iterations of the shoes in the future.
