Created during designer, Daniel Coric’s internship at Adidas in Portland, OR in the Fall of 2017, the “Adidas ONE/1” combines foot scanning technology with Grasshopper, Rhino and a super creative design approach.
“(This was a) Project that I completed during my internship at Adidas during my time on the US Sports team. With Adidas’ new focus on the north american market, I decided to focus on America’s most popular sport: FOOTBALL. The NFL Combine & the 40 Yard Dash is where footwear technology is pushed the furthest so I wanted to develop a concept for this moment. Rather than using a traditional shoe last, I wanted to implement foot scanning technology and 3D printing techniques to give Adidas athletes the best fit when competing for the best time.” – Coric
After some initial sketching and fit testing to see where the most crucial fit points of a cleat are, Daniel started to test layering different materials (like tape, hot glue and flex steel) into a mould of his foot, to try and create somewhat of a sock-like cleat.
After some rough proto’s, he then started to push the project further by combining adidas’ current combine cleat with elements from track spikes, and focused on creating a dynamic stud placement pattern that would help the athlete perform their best at the 40 Yard Dash.
Finally, and with the help of Alison Wang, they created the concept in a beautiful 3D model using a mixture of Grasshopper and Rhino.
