MANILA, Philippines — Sports giant adidas is kicking off the new year with its latest iteration of the brand’s running shoe line – the all-new adidas Adistar.
More than ever, adidas running’s latest sneaker is designed to help runners go beyond their long, slow runs.
The shoe, inspired by the idea of perpetual motion and tested over 4,500 kilometres, offers a package of “support and protection” to help its wearer reach distances they have never reached before.
The Adistar features a padded collar and tongue as well as an engineered mesh upper to softly strike and push its wearer forward from the first step to the distant last.
A soft and responsive REPETITIOR midsole is also paired with REPETITIOR+, a firm EVA cradle around the heel to stabilize the wearer with every stride.
The shoe also has “rocker geometry” on the midsole due to a 6mm drop in heel-to-toe stack height.
Key features of the shoe include a “dual” last that has been informed by both masculine and feminine ideas to accommodate the anatomical differences of the male and female foot.
“For SS22, we wanted to focus on supporting all runners on their long, slow runs,” said Simon Lockett, Senior Product Manager at adidas.
“With that in mind, we created the adidas Adistar, which is designed to give runners confidence on long runs with the perfect combination of cushioning, protection and support,” he added.
The adidas Adistar comes in two colorways, Rush Blue and Turbo Red.
Available through the adidas online store, the adidas app, in-store and through the adidas Viber store, a pair costs 6,500 pesos.
