Running Shoe ‘World’s Fastest’
Sportswear giant adidas believes it has created the world’s fastest shoe.
The brand has built on an earlier running model, worn by the winner of this year’s London Marathon, Wilson Kipsang, to produce the new Adizero Adios Boost 2.0 trainers.
Kipsang crossed the finish line in record-breaking time while wearing the Adizero Adios shoes in April.
Now the German firm has added its patented Boost technology to further improve on performance.
It joins other trainers in the Boost line, including the Pure Boost, featured on FashionBeans last month. The technology uses a special foam to provide a high energy return.
The original designer of the Adizero Adios, Japanese shoe maker Toshiaki Omori, was called back in by the brand to create the follow-up.
Omori is known for his traditional methods of shoe production, hand crafting samples in place of machines.
As well as the Boost technology, a contoured Microfit upper provides ventilation and allows for natural and comfortable strides. A rubber outsole also grips the ground for added traction and better push-off.
The trainers, which are available to buy online now, come in orange or navy; each with the three stripe branding. Retail price for the adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2.0 trainers is £110.
