The ADIZERO SL was designed to assist runners to propel their training to the next level. It’s an elite-level running shoe created for the everyday runner at a lower price point. This will allow you to aim for smashing your personal best times come race day.
There are three key areas of design on the adidas ADIZERO SL. The first of these is the Lightstrike Pro foam. This is the same foam used on the record-breaking Adios Pro series. It is strategically placed in the forefoot to propel runners forward with each step.
The second aspect is the Lightstrike EVA midsole. This frame provides maximum cushioning across the underfoot. Additionally it protects the midsole construction, adding balance and allowing runners to focus on that next step.
Finally, there’s the mesh upper and padded tongue. The materials allow for breathability, while, more importantly, providing a locked-in approach. This helps with those high-speed runs to create a secure feel in your stride. Additionally, the padding adds the maximum level of comfort.

“The launch of the ADIZERO SL represents our continued commitment to our running community as we offer them a great daily trainer. We’re excited to help runners go faster than ever before as they take advantage of a shoe that includes some of the industry-first technology that has helped the likes of Peres Jepchirchir and Tamirat Tola smash World Records.”
Additionally, Peres Jepchirchir, reigning Olympic Champion and three-time World Record holder, added to this sentiment:
“During the winter months, in the lead up to big races in spring and championships in summer, that’s when you have to put in the hardest work in training. Having the right shoes on my feet allows me to maximize my training when it counts the most. Whenever I put on my ADIZERO SLs, I feel equipped to run fast.”
