For all of you out there who, like us, were hooked on the original Springblade shoe from adidas, you really have to check out the newly released version. Springblade, introduced last year, is the first running shoe with blade technology designed to help propel you forward. The Razor features a unique web design over sock-like Techfit technology that helps lock your feet in place and enhances breathability. The shoe’s 16 individually-tuned blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy.
The Springblade Razor is on sale now at adidas.com, at adidas Sport Performance stores and retailers nationwide like Finish Line. The shoe launches in four colorways for men, including Solar Blue/Tech Grey Metallic/Black, Black/Tech Grey Metallic/ Light Scarlet, Metallic Silver/Black/Light Scarlet and Light Scarlett/Black/Metallic Silver, and three colorways for women, including Solar Blue/Tech Grey Metallic/Black, Black/Black/Vivid Berry and Bahia Pink/Metallic Silver/Black.
Your training will never be the same once you utilize the Springblade design and comfort. After testing the 2014 version, they only improved, as the Techfit technology is a real difference maker!
We were fortunate to review the newly designed and developed D Rose 3.5 Signature Basketball Shoe from adidas with input from Chicago Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose. The shoe has improved performance, bolder style and more personal details than its predecessor and launched just a few weeks ago. The D Rose 3.5 shoe is inspired by Derrick’s dedication and hard work to his game and features adidas’ most innovative performance technology, premium and rich style elements and personal details.
To exceed the performance needs for Derrick’s unique style of play, which includes extreme changes in direction, acceleration and explosiveness, adidas designers made the D Rose 3.5 more supportive, comfortable and responsive than its predecessor. The shoe fits even closer to the foot for faster cuts and features a SPRINTWEB upper engineered specifically for his style of play, which reduces weight with maximum support and breathability.
Additional performance features include an ergonomic ankle collar pocket to ensure maximum support during hard cuts and a breathable mesh tongue to improve comfort. SPRINTFRAME technology features an external heel counter to reduce weight and allow for energy return and motion control, giving Derrick his best performing signature shoe to date to improve his performance on court.
The bold spiral overlay pattern is inspired by Derrick’s goal to tighten his game, and functionally, it increases flexibility and provides optimum toe protection. The synthetic leather upper features the spiral protruding from the D Rose logo on the ankle to represent how his on and off-court success continues to grow from the support of his family, who inspired the logo. Chicago call-outs on the inside of the tongue showcase the essence of Rose, including a “Rooted in Chicago” graphic with lettering, colors and shapes inspired by Derrick’s tattoos and the Chicago flag. Each colorway of the D Rose 3.5 will feature special graphics, materials and colors that give details about Derrick’s life and style of play.
The three stripes are again featured on the back of the shoe to represent Rose’s speed, and now wrap around the outsole so opponents will see them not only when he drives past them, but also goes over them.
The D Rose 3.5 launched at retailers worldwide on January 31st for $160 in away (black/white/red) and home (gray/black/red) colorways. The shoe will launch in six additional editions through April.
The new D Rose 3.5 not only looks incredible, but the fit and finish of the new shoe from adidas hits new levels for comfort and stability. These new offerings are extremely lightweight but add to the strength of an already top-shelf shoe. The attention one gets from wearing the new D Rose 3.5’s might surprise you because everyone wants to check them out on and off the court.
Adidas has been launching one great pair of athletic shoes after another, and the all new adiZero Sonic 3 for men are the real deal. We recently tested a pair, and if you are looking for some new kicks for running, cross training or just looking good, you’ll want to check these out. With maximum durability, the lightweight adiZero Sonic 3 is built for speed and features full length adiPrene+ midsole technology for responsive cushioning with each stride. The shoe’s stitchless SprintWeb provides superior support to ensure your foot stays in place without extra weight. An air mesh and totally new designed upper construction offer maximum breathability and comfort. We can tell you that after wearing the new adiZero Sonic 3s, they are some of the most comfortable and sturdy workout shoes we have tested.
These shoes were basically built for athletes looking to perform at the highest level, and when Robert Griffin III is also sporting them, you know they’re for real. This is what RG3 had to say about the new adiZero Sonic 3: “The first thing that comes to mind when you put on the adizero Sonic is how light it is,” said Griffin III. “It gives you a lot of support so you can run long distances, but you can use it multiple ways. It has support so you can lift in it and stay comfortable during a full day’s workout.”
RG3 is shown in action in this video which was partially shot at Baylor’s Floyd Casey Stadium where Griffin III set or tied more than 50 school records. Look at how the heavy weight of pressure and heat of the spotlight are shattered by what lightweight adiZero shoes deliver!
I’m going to put these on right now and get in a super workout! The adiZero Sonic 3 is available now for $85 in-store at Dick’s Sporting Goods and online at DicksSportingGoods.com and on adidas.com.
