Today we have a huge selection of running shoes. Psychology says that when we have a large choice before us, it creates confusion in us, and the least discomfort. We need more time, energy and patience to make the right choice. When you have a clear picture of what you want, look to narrow down your choices to those shoes that you fit so far, but follow all the news that is happening in the market. Consider the new Adidas Springblade Running Shoes.
Adidas’s new Springblade running shoes will be, with their “old school” look but yet in very modern style, very popular to all generations. “Six years in the making, Springblade provides one of the highest energy returns in the industry,” said Mikal Peveto, director of running at Adidas America. The Adidas Springblade features 32 plastic “blades” that make up the shoe’s foam-less midsole. The goal is for the shoe to spring back with each step and propel a runner forward.
Traditionally, running shoes have used a foam midsole, which rebounds only in a vertical direction. These blades on this new shoe have different thicknesses and angles, which can influence the amount and direction of that energy return. The Adidas Springblade will be available from August 1 and retail for $180 at stores nationwide including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Foot Locker, Finish Line, and select specialty running shops.
