adidas has just launched the Springblade – the only running shoe with innovated blade technology designed to help you propel forward.
Unlike standard EVA midsoles that deliver energy return in a vertical direction, Springblade features 16 forward angled blades made out of a high-tech polymer. The highly elastic blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy to create an efficient push-off that feels like you have springs under your feet.
The Springblade’s progressive look and blade technology are radically different than any running show ever created. It is engineered to reflect extensive athlete insights to help make them better.
Each blade is precisely tuned in geometry, thickness and position for each phase of a runner’s stride to provide support and a full range of movement. Additionally, Springblade’s flexible construction was designed to hug the top of a runner’s foot, locking it in to harness the energy returned from the springs on the outsole.
Springblade will be available in February 2014 (RM650) at adidas Sports Performance Concept Stores in KLCC, Pavilion, Midvalley, Times Square and Sunway Pyramid.
