adidas has not slowed down the pace when it comes to its running shoes. Having released the Ultraboost 22 in December and the 4D Ultra in January, the brand has continued its release schedule with another release. As such, it has introduced the adidas Solarglide 5 to its latest range of runners.
As it attempts to ramp up its consistency, adidas seeks to increase your distance and training to reach your personal best. The Solarglide 5 was designed as the shoe to get you to that point.
Every runner knows that consistent running is key. And with the everyday runner in mind, the adidas Solarglide 5 brings with it the latest in technology from the Solarglide family. It sports the perfect fit, which also includes a Bubble Boost midsole. This consists of hundreds of Boost capsules that are fused together, ready to explode with energy return in every step.
The Boost technology works in tandem with the all-new LEP. It fits between the Bubble Boost platform and the Control platform, providing a smooth ride for all runners.
The Control platform itself is a full-top loaded EVA design. It was crafted for a smooth transition in every stride. The LEP 2.0, on the other hand, is the latest evolution of the adidas torsion system.
As with most modern adidas sneakers, the Solarglide 5 was designed with the planet in mind. It is yet another testament to the brand’s commitment to eco-friendly materials and manufacturing processes. Its Primeblue knit upper is made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic. This means that it is created from 50% Parley Ocean Plastic, which includes recycled plastic waste, which has been collected on remote islands and beaches around the world. These materials collected prevent the addition to the build-up of waste in the ocean. The remaining 50% is manufactured from yarn made of recycled polyester.
The adidas Solarglide 5 is available in ranges for both men and women. Each has been designed specifically for athletes’ feet from both genders in order to provide a suitable underfoot experience for all.
The shoe underwent many tests during the development phase to ensure the silhouette was suitable of the women’s Solarglide providing the best possible fit for female runners.
The adidas Solarglide 5 has landed in South Africa
