Technological advancements in the sneaker world are happening all the time. Whether it’s the use of recycled materials or creating a lighter model, big brands are always pushing forward when it comes to new ideas. adidas has been one of those. Over the past few years, the brand with the three stripes has continually driven new and exciting technologies like Boost. Now, adidas has unveiled its most impressive running sneaker yet dubbed the adios Pro.
Officially labeled the “fastest ever distance shoe” by adidas, the innovative technology looks to challenge Nike’s NEXT% line. Taking things back to basics, adidas recruited some of its key athletes like Joyciline Jepkosgei and Rhonex Kipruto. The development of the adios Pro has relied closely on runner’s experiences, ensuring that they come up with a product that suits the needs of runners more than ever before.
The result is five adidas carbon-infused EnergyRods that mimic the metatarsal bones found in the foot. Ultimately, these rods will help runners to maintain the same speed for longer periods of distance. Of course, this will also create less impact on the body, giving the wearer a much more comfortable ride. According to Robbie Paterson, Footwear Development Manager of adidas Running:
“To create the best, we knew we had to work with the best. Thousands of kilometres, months of testing, and dozens of prototypes went into something designed to help athletes run faster, for longer but with the same energy, than ever before.”
