ASICS, The Japanese multinational corporation producing footwear and sports equipment designed for a wide range of sports is using microwave technology to craft midsoles in as little as 15 seconds. Asics might not be pronounced as frequently as the other brands like self-lacing Nikes and Adidas, but the company has just unveiled an enthralling take on the manufacturing process.

The manufacturing process makes the use of heat generated by microwaves to combine various materials together in order to fashion the shoe’s custom midsoles. This new modus operandi was developed alongside Taiwan’s Tayin Research and Development Co, Ltd. Customization while presenting a comparatively prolonged solution to shoe-making was promised.

What makes this proposition more exciting is the fact that it only takes about 15 seconds to complete. Hence people no longer have to keep waiting and also, they can perceive how convoluted the minutiae are. The company is also giving in the best designs and utmost quality to their users which compel them to be loyal to Asics. It is also involved in making 3D printing, which brings in new technology-driven soles that fulfill each individual’s personal interest.Few years down the line, Asics might actually bring microwaves to shops, making it easier for the customer to select their custom shoe design in person. At the moment, this corporate is only allowing a sneak preview of the technology because it is still in the trial phase.

Asics is not allowing any additional information to sneak out before the actual release. The big question lies on scalability as well.  “We are going to bring it to select footwear ranges in the future,” the company said. As with 3D printing, it is expected to continue as a limited innovation, at least for now.
