A new high-concept running shoe specially engineered to help athletes overcome the marathon’s two-hour barrier is about to take the world of sports footwear by storm with adidas adizero Sub2.
The new running shoe features the Boost Light cushioning, the brand’s latest innovation that sports the lightest-ever foam. The upper is constructed using a single layer of ultralight fabric alongside a weight-reduced mesh with added reinforcements and advanced Microfit that delivers “the best support, comfort and fit for high-speed road racing.” Completing the look of the adidas adizero Sub2 is the evolutionary Continental Microweb outsole, which provides maximum grip regardless the ground conditions.
“adidas adizero Sub2 is a significant milestone in the brand’s Sub2 program and central to the future of adidas running,” said André Maestrini, Global General Manager, adidas Running. “Around the London Marathon in 2012, we started thinking about Sub2 as a concept and adidas’ role in achieving what was deemed impossible. We began creating a shoe that could enable this, and Wilson (Kipsang) is the perfect athlete to test our innovation in a race environment. We’re incredibly excited to see where this can go.”
First appeared at the recent weekend’s Tokyo Marathon by Kenyan long-distance runner, Wilson Kipsang, in an exclusive “Energy Blue” colourway, the adidas adizero Sub2 is expected to hit retail stores later this year.
