Adidas Futurecraft Leather makes shoe of single piece of material

Adidas Futurecraft Leather makes shoe of single piece of material

While the shoe does still need support of a sole - and strings, of course - this Adidas shoe needs but one piece of leather. The upper bits of this Originals Superstar are cut from a single piece of material, making use of the company's newest innovations in what's called the Adidas Futurecraft series. We previously showed you the first chapter in this story, one in which Adidas created the sole of a shoe using a 3D printer for otherwise-impossible shapes for support.

Where and How: the 2015 NIKE MAG Back to the Future sneaker with power laces

This afternoon NIKE shared details about how to get a pair of the 2015 NIKE MAG, the Back to the Future sneakers, complete with power laces. They suggest that while the first pair of sneakers is already out there in the wild, straight up in the possession of mister Marty McFly himself, Michael J. Fox, the rest will be for sale soon. The good news is that this shoe's proceeds will go to charity. The bad news is that unless you're a very rich sort of sneaker collector, you're likely out of luck already.

Back to the Future NIKE MAG self-lacing sneakers details emerging

Today NIKE has confirmed that the first-ever pair of real self-lacing NIKE MAG sneakers (from Back to the Future II) are out there. They're really, truly out there. Whether or not they'll actually be on sale any time soon is yet to be confirmed, but NIKE has been so kind as to say that the first pair is currently somewhere inside the confines of New York City. NIKE employees can expect their fair share of questions about these sneakers throughout the afternoon, without a doubt.

Evolve Heated Hoodie keeps wearer warm with USB battery

Winter is coming, and for those in the colder regions of the land, that means snow and ice and layers upon layers of clothes. Depending on where you live, the temperature might get exceedingly cold, but piling on a sweater and then a hoodie and then a winter jacket is cumbersome, uncomfortable, and looks ridiculous. Enter the Evolve Heated Hoodie, which is a simple hoodie that uses a battery power bank to warm up from the inside out.

In the future, a customer will walk in to an Adidas store, run on a treadmill, and walk out with a pair of running shoes printed with their exact physical specifications in mind.

Intel’s Curie tech powers cooling vents in sports bra

Intel’s Curie tech powers cooling vents in sports bra

Sports bras are designed to keep things comfortable during activities while still, you know, offering support where support is needed. The compromise between the two means things can get a little uncomfortable at times, particularly when it comes to the ventilation issue. Women of the future may not experience such troubles, though, as Chromat has shown off the prototype of a sports bra that uses Intel technology to open vents when things get warm.

Chewbacca Crocs unveiled ahead of new Star Wars movie

Chewbacca Crocs unveiled ahead of new Star Wars movie

Items modeled after Star Wars characters are nothing new, and we've seen the number of gadgets grow as the next movie's premiere grows nearer (not that there was ever a shortage of such items). The newest one to surface is a bit of a misstep, though, at least if your fashion sense has reached the adult level: Chewbacca-themed Crocs. Yes, Crocs still exist, and these ones are toeing the line crossed by fuzzy Ugg boots, only with a side order of spongy and hole-filled foam.

Mars One project inspires clothing line, is still ill-fated

Almost immediately, though, critics began pointing out big problems with the proposed plan, and soon after the applicants themselves began raising issues. The dream is still alive despite this, and the company is still pushing on, still insisting that its plan is possible. Spawning from the project is an upcoming line of clothing that will be revealed at the upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 fashion show.

Converse Chucks redesigned with Nike tech for comfort

Converse Chucks redesigned with Nike tech for comfort

For the first time in the 98 years since the Chuck Taylor shoe was released, Converse has issued a redesign. This is the Chuck Taylor II, complete with NIKE technology inside. Not so much technology as cushioning. Not so much a redesign as an addition of a long-bemoaned missing part of the equation: comfort. This version of the shoe isn't as bare and minimal as its predecessor. This version of the shoe wont result in aching feet and a less-than-optimal jump shot when you've been out on the court for more than 5-minutes.
