Late last year, following in the footsteps of rival Adidas, New Balance introduced its first 3D-printed running shoe. But the company didn't share many details back then, other than revealing the footwear's existence and teasing and eventual release. Thankfully for people who are interested, New Balance has announced that the Zante Generate will be available to consumers on April 15th, albeit in extremely limited form. There are only 44 pairs total, so you'll have to act fast if you want one.

With a 3D-printed midsole, made from laser sintering powder and DuraForm TPU, the sneaker is designed to conform differently based on each individual's attributes (height, weight and more). New Balance claims that should translate into "optimal" comfortability, flexibility and durability. The Zante Generates are scheduled to hit New Balance's site, as well as its Experience Store in Boston, this Thursday at 9AM ET. Here's hoping they're easier to buy than the Yeezy Boost.
