Heard About Adidas BOOST Revolution?

July 11th, 2013 2 comments

One of the best revolutions in running shoes is now available! Ever heard of the Adidas #BOOST Revolution? Recently, Adidas let me break-in their BOOST running shoes.

My new running shoes- Adidas Boost

My new running shoes- Adidas Boost. Notice the foam soles. That’s the new Adidas technology

What is Adidas BOOST Technology?

Adidas BoostAdidas BOOST is a foam material that combines previously contradicting performance benefits of soft and responsive cushioning. The energy return is provided by energy capsules in the midsole which store and release energy so efficiently that runners feel the difference from the first moment they put the shoes on. In short, its like you are recycling the energy you are exerting when running. 

Based on an innovative process developed by adidas’ partner BASF, the world’s leading chemical company, solid granular material (TPU) is literally blown up and turned into small energy capsules which make up the shoe’s distinctive midsole. When tested at extreme temperatures from +40 to -20 degrees Celsius, BOOST™ foam performs more consistently and does not lose its cushioning properties like standard EVA (Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate). BOOST also maintains its key characteristics better over its lifetime than the comparable EVA midsole. So BOOST is way better in terms of longevity than the usual running soles that’s made of EVA.

What more? Additional adidas technology featured in the Energy Boost includes: a special mid-foot support frame which cradles the foot in place, an extended TORSION system from heel to toe which helps to minimise roll for more stability; an adiwear outsole which reduces wear in key sole areas and extends the life of the shoe; and an external heel counter which maximises the heel fit and comfort during the run. This is just perfect for a regular mid-foot runner like me.

How do I try this new revolutionary technology?

Now, BOOST™ is being rolled out to more adidas running products and colours. In addition to the Energy Boost franchise, which will come in four colorways for both men and women, BOOST™ cushioning is now also available in adistar and adizero running footwear.

In fact, BOOST™ foam will replace the common EVA material in all adidas running performance shoes by 2015. I used my Adizero Ace during lots of half-marathons and during my full marathon and finished all of them with a good time. Now, I look forward to using my Adidas Boost on my next race.

Awards so far…

Since its introduction to the world at a global launch event in New York City early in 2013, the Energy Boost running shoe has revolutionised the running world. Featuring the ground-breaking cushioning technology BOOST™, which provides the highest energy return in the running industry, it has set a new benchmark for adidas running footwear, was honoured with the Runner’s World 2013 Best Debut award and, in its first appearance at a global marathon, BOOST™ took home the crown in Tokyo. And this was just the beginning.

Key Innovation…

The key to the BOOST™ innovation lies in thousands of small energy capsules which make up the footwear’s distinctive midsole. With their unique cell structure, these capsules store and unleash energy more efficiently in every stride. As a result, BOOST™ at last combines the previously contradicting performance benefits of soft cushioning and responsiveness to give runners a running experience unlike any other. The revolutionary cushioning material also maintains its performance in almost any conditions, at unparalleled levels and over hundreds of kilometres.

Techfit technology

Techfit technology- providing optimal comfort and support to the entire foot while in motion. A stretch, breathable mesh material offers the fit of a sock, while engineered powerbands across the upper provide targeted support and stabilise the foot where needed when moving.

 

How much is the shoes?

The new colourful Energy Boost collection will be available worldwide at adidas Sport Performance stores and selected retailers on July 7, 2013 at PHP 7,995. Visit http://www.facebook.com/adidas for more information.

Adidas Finds Fast with the Adizero F50 Runner 3

January 27th, 2013 1 comment

Running shoes are runners’ most important gear, unless of course you belong to the barefoot running
community. Anyway, adidas creates one of their fastest shoes to date called the adizero F50 Runner 3. As
a lightweight runner, I tried using the adizero Ace before and it was one of my fave running shoes.

This new adizero F50 Runner 3 is another creation under the brand’s lightweight range, a result of precise
engineering and thorough research to help athletes find new levels of fast.

Find fast

The adizero F50 Runner 3 features the lightest advanced technologies such as the SPRINTFRAME
platform. It replaces the conventional (more heavyweight) shoe construction while maintaining important
performance characteristics, such as comfort and stability, and allowing for optimum forefoot propulsion.
Fully integrated in the SPRINTFRAME platform is the TORSION® SYSTEM which allows independent
movement of the fore- and rearfoot.

Adidas F50

Inspired by the dynamic 3-Stripes execution and seamless upper design of the F50 football boot, which
is worn on the field of play by adidas football ambassadors such as Lionel Messi, the F50 Runner 3 also
features FORMOTION™ technology which adjusts to every runner’s individual style and assists the
runner’s take-off with every stride. The shoe also offers full forefoot adiPRENE®+ which propels the
forefoot for an improved toe-off.

Some of the fastest athletes in the world, such as Yohan Blake (100m World Champion), David Rudisha
(Olympic 800m gold medalist and world record holder) and Patrick Makau (marathon world record
holder) trust the adizero range in their competitions.
