Adidas announces latest updates of the shoes for speed on the road and track

In a press release, adidas have announced the latest evolution of adizero footwear built for speed on the road and the track. They announced new iterations of their ADIZERO ADIOS PRO 2, and the all-new ADIZERO BOSTON 10, ADIZERO PRIME X and AVANTI Track Spikes.

The ADIZERO ADIOS PRO 2 features:

Theshoe features two-layers of re-sculpted LIGHTSTRIKE PRO midsole – a revamped construction to support with energy return. Signature carbon-infused ENERGYRODS – now visible within the newly sculpted midsole deliver lightweight stiffness and are designed for a more anatomical driven transition, limiting energy loss. The re-engineered midsole combines with an ultra-lightweight, partially recycled polyester, CELERMESH 2.0 upper. Created for speed with flexibility, breathability and support based on athlete data. In addition, a CONTINENTAL™ RUBBER OUTSOLE has been added to the toe tip to create a traction zone to support faster acceleration and a new lightweight heel construction keeps the foot tightly locked in through anti slip lockdown, whilst softening the heel structure to help increase comfort.

The ADIZERO BOSTON 10 offers:

Offering runners, the best of the ADIZERO ADIOS PRO 2 race day set up in a versatile, every day running shoe. Featuring the same LIGHTSTRIKE PRO 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 offers:

has been created as a boundary-breaking conceptual long distance running shoe. Designed without limitations to amplify key features of the ADIZERO ADIOS PRO 2 and explore and push the limits of the technology. Sharing the same LIGHTSTRIKE PRO midsole and ENERGYROD technology, stiffening blades, that spring back, have been added within a 50mm heel.

AVANTI TRACK SPIKE offers:

Retaining the signature ENERGYROD technology, honed for the track surface by switching to a glass fibre composition – ensuring stiffness whilst adding flexibility for the track. A SLINGLAUNCH HEEL construction has been placed around the back of the shoe, inspired by rock climbing silhouettes, designed to lock in the foot to create a secure and anti-slip fit from the first to the last stride.
