The Spring Blade is the result of six years of product development by the adidas Innovation Team (AIT). It was introduced in the US last year in August and now for the first time hits select retailers in Europe.
The adidas Springblade is inspired by springboards and Olympic sports such as pole vault. The breakthrough design of the Spring Blade aims to be simple and flexible from the moment you put them on and takes care of an explosive energy return when running.
The sole of the Springblade contains 16 durable, high-quality polymer blades that act as springs. These ensure that energy is stored with every step you take, and a maximum is returned. The flexible upper of the shoe is made of Techfit and therefore feels like a sock around your foot which increases comfort. A protective heel keeps your foot secure and stable in place.
The Springblade is suitable for both recreational as race runners and can be customized to your own liking at adidas.com.
