SPORTSWEAR brand adidas recently revealed its latest collection of Adizero footwear which is built for speed both on the road and on the track.
The collection is composed of the Adizero Adios Pro 2, the all-new Adizero Boston 10, Adizero Prime X, and Avanti Track Spike. They were constructed, adidas said, in line with its continued push to provide the best gear for athletes.
The Adizero Adios Pro debuted last year and was well received by runners, including top pros like Peres Jepchirchir and Kibiwott Kandie of Kenya, for its high performance.
The updated version of the shoe is lighter than its predecessor, featuring two-layers of a re-sculpted Lightstrike Pro midsole to reduce weight and for better energy return, and signature carbon-infused Energyrods which allow for a more anatomical-driven transition.
Complementing the reengineered midsole is an ultra-lightweight Celermesh2.0 upper for speed with flexibility, breathability, and support.
A Continental Rubber Outsole has been added to the toe tip to create a traction zone to support faster acceleration while a new lightweight heel construction keeps the foot tightly locked in through anti-slip lockdown.
The Adizero Boston 10, meanwhile, offers the best of the Adizero Adios Pro 2 but is set up in a versatile, every day running shoe. It features the same Lightstrike Pro midsole combined with a durable Lightstrike EVA midsole foam, Energyrods, a soft upper construction, and Continental Rubber Outsole to support every day long-distance training runs with a durable lightweight ride.
The Adizero Prime X, for its part, is a boundary-breaking conceptual long-distance running shoe. It is designed to amplify key features of the Adizero Adios Pro 2 and explore and push the limits of the technology. Stiffening blades that spring back have also been added within a 50mm heel.
Completing the collection is the Avanti Track Spike which is touted to bring the very best of the record-breaking Adizero road running shoes to the track for the very first time. It retains the signature Energyrod technology while a Slinglaunch Heel construction has been placed around the back of the shoe to create a secure and anti-slip fit from the first to the last stride.
“The Adizero silhouette is in a constant state of evolution and designing elite equipment like the Adizero Adios Pro 2 is all about identifying the right marginal gains,” James Foster, Vice-President Product at adidas Running, in a statement, said of the latest collection of the Adizero footwear.
The Adizero Adios Pro 2 and the rest of the shoes in the collection are available at adidas.com and select retail partners. — Michael Angelo S. Murillo
