“3D-printing” by New Balance
One of the most outstanding events of recent times was the presentation of the unique 3D printing technology, provided by New Balance in its line of custom spikes for sports enthusiasts.
This technology is not exactly 3D printing – it is rather SLS – Selective Laser Sintering, or “laser soldering”. The technology exists since 1980-s and is widely used in the production of “Formula-1” bolides – for metal soldering.
The uniqueness of the technology is that they create a detailed map of the foot – sole contact during the movement – using more than 100 sensors and taking into account all the athletes comments. As a result, they develop a perfect pair of shoes, which is so good that you almost don’t feel it on feet!

“All Condition Control” by Nike
There is no such thing as bad weather … only bad clothing!
The weather during a football match plays a huge role. Wetness during the rain significantly hinders controlling the ball even for the elite players!
Engineers from Nike developed and presented to the public a new technology “All Condition Control” (ACC), to prove that there is no bad weather. “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather!” The technology eliminates “weather imperfections” and helps ensure steady ball control in all weather conditions.
The technology provides the optimal level of friction between the surface of the boots and the ball during the game: this is achieved thanks to the special processing of material for the upper layer of the boots. All Conditions Control (ACC) is now available for all Nike sneakers series, including Nike HyperVenom Phantom, Mercurial Vapor VIII, Tiempo Legend IV, CTR 360 Maestri III and Total 90 Laser IV.

Also, Nike presented another solution for the sneakers top layer — Flyknit, which is now massively produced. The first thing that draws your attention is the absence of the usual foil sheets, tissues, inserts: the entire top layer of sneaker is knitting.
Manner and density of a knit give special characteristics to the sneakers – flexibility, “breathability” and stiffness.
- fewer stitches and underlayers, there are no unpleasant feeling that appear when the fold of the sock is not at the right place;
- lightness and excellent ventilation, great fit.
Nike competitors, Adidas, has a very similar technology called PrimeKnit. It was presented at the Summer Olympics in London.
