New Balance announced launch of the first high performance running shoes with 3D printed midsoles.  The shoes will be first launched in Boston in April 2016.  Subsequently they will be launched in select locations worldwide.  New Balance is collaborating with 3D Systems for this product.  The midsoles are 3D printed using selective laser sintering (SLS) process that uses a powder called DuraForm® Flex TPU.
