adidas Energy Boost

A revolution has set to take the world of running by adidas. They’ve made great runners throughout the 1980′s with their ZX range, utilising their Torsion technology in the 1990′s and most recently using digitally knitted yarn to create the adiZero Primeknit. Now they’ve released the Energy Boost, and like the name suggests, the shoe is to provide “endless energy” to spark “a new way of running”. This basically works via the distinctive Styrofoam-looking midsole that’s made of a solid granular material, blown up and turned into thousands of small energy capsules and then all stuck together. The result is a feeling of an extra spring in your every step (we’ve been lucky enough to road test the shoe. And you can see the comparative cushioned bounce between the Boost material and standard EVA sole demonstrated in the video below.) The shoe works an overall sleek silhouette, being lightweight in both the upper and of course the cutting-edge sole. The Energy Boost is available now from adidas.
