While this is present elsewhere in a pair of running shoes, much of the Adidas forMOTION technology focuses on the heel portion of the shoe. It has a special material that divides the heel area of the shoe into two separate sections. The material between them allows the lower plate-like outsole to allow the upper midsole closer to the feet to slide and move forward when the shoe hits the ground. This is meant to absorb shock while carrying your foot in a much smoother strike. Adidas claims the result mimics the natural movement of the foot as closely as possible.
adiPRENE and adiPRENE +
This technology guides the foot through a midsole system that incorporates two different molded elements. The two materials offer different types of properties that affect the way the shoe responds to each kick. AdiPRENE is the cushioning element that sits on the heel of the shoe and adiPRENE + allows the forefoot to rebound and propel itself forward. The combination of these two materials on different parts of the shoes makes each Adidas shoe effective enough to reduce impact and release energy to propel the runner forward.
CLIMACOOL is Adidas’ version of breathable technology. Many different materials come under CLIMACOOL technology. They all allow ventilation of the foot from all parts of the running shoe, making them cool and comfortable.
Adidas’ NOSEAM technology is exactly what it does. Running shoes have no seams. The result is a comfortable snug fit that never produces chafing or irritation. Adidas has done a good job in this area and the durability is not affected by the absence of seams.
Similar to many other technologies found in other brands of running shoes, the Adidas Torsion System allows the forefoot to move independently of the heel. This allows the shoes to give the natural twisting motion of the foot during the gait cycle. The result is better stability and better support.
Adidas has always been a mainstay of running shoe technology. Their adiPRENE technologies have created reliable running shoes that are durable, high performance and in fact quite affordable.
