Springblade Performance Running Shoe by Adidas
You can now purchase a pair of Adidas SpringBlade high performance running shoes from their online store for $180. Now you might think that this price is a little steep at a glance, but bear with us as we explain exactly what makes these shoes special.
Their somewhat unusual design characteristics have functional purposes, especially the blades replacing the outsole. These 16 individually tuned blades are able to provide a substantial amount of energy return, pushing runners forward while ensuring support. The shoe has been thoroughly tested by the Adidas Innovation Team, and the results state that the SpringBlade boasts seven times more temperature resistance compared to shoes using standard EVA cushioning.
These outstanding characteristics help justify the price tag we mentioned earlier, but when it comes to utmost performance, money is but a means to an end.
