Today, the sportswear giant Adidas revealed a groundbreaking addition to their running arsenal: the ADIZERO PRIME X 2 STRUNG. This latest entrant to the renowned ADIZERO lineup is anything but conventional. While its design surpasses the regulatory guidelines set for elite race shoes, it’s all set to become a must-have for running enthusiasts eager to outdo their personal records.
Features That Set Adidas ADIZERO PRIME X 2 STRUNG Apart
Ignoring the race regulations that limit shoes to a stack height of 40mm and a single carbon plate, the ADIZERO PRIME X 2 STRUNG flaunts an impressive 50mm stack height coupled with a double carbon-infused plate system. The re-engineered midsole showcases three layers of Adidas’ proprietary LIGHTSTRIKE PRO foam, setting a new record within the brand’s footwear collection.
Though not suitable for elite races due to these specifications, the shoe is an ideal choice for dedicated runners aiming for their next personal best.
Adidas seems to be on a mission this year, signalling their intent to redefine the future of running. The ADIZERO PRIME X 2 STRUNG is the beginning of a series of innovation-driven racing shoes they plan to unveil in 2023.
Coralie Ho-Von, the Global Product Manager of Running Footwear at Adidas, shared her excitement about the launch.
“By stepping away from traditional rules, our design team had the liberty to unleash their creative prowess fully. Their dedication and insights from extensive athlete testing have birthed a shoe that brings together stability, increased springiness, and a superior fit. And this is just the start. We have more surprises in store for the upcoming season.”
Innovation At Its Best
The ADIZERO PRIME X 2 STRUNG is the epitome of Adidas’ relentless pursuit to craft the ultimate running gear. The shoe integrates several cutting-edge features:
- STRUNG UPPER: Designed for both strength and flexibility, the STRUNG upper provides enhanced reinforcement in the heel and midfoot areas while ensuring optimum flexibility in the forefoot. A knitted tongue further accentuates the snug fit.
- 3 LAYERS OF LIGHTSTRIKE PRO + CONTINENTAL™ OUTSOLE: Besides the unmatched 50mm stack height derived from three layers of LIGHTSTRIKE PRO, the shoe’s midsole is engineered for lighter weight and increased springiness in the fore and midfoot areas. Furthermore, the Continental™ outsole ensures a dependable grip, even on challenging terrains.
- 2 CARBON-INFUSED PLATE SYSTEM: Nestled within the LIGHTSTRIKE PRO core are two carbon-infused plates, crafted to amplify the shoe’s responsiveness throughout the running journey.
Dressed in a vibrant mix of blues, violets, and reds, the ADIZERO PRIME X 2 STRUNG will retail at €300 / $300.
Running aficionados can grab their pair starting September 15, available globally via the Adidas app, online portals, physical stores, and select retailers. As an adiClub member you can pre-book the shoe already now.
