How To Choose the Right Adizero Shoe for You

No matter if your goal is to finish first or to finish for the first time, Adizero is made to win. Adizero stands for our pinnacle running products. The line-up consists of high-tech products, which are driven by our constant drive for innovations. Now we will take a closer look at our current Adizero models...

In the Adizero range, there is a shoe for any distance and occasion. From training to races, from 5k to marathons - all Adizero shoes are created around our key benefit of running fast. 
The STRUNG upper combines targeted strength and flexibility, enhancing midfoot and heel areas while allowing expansion in the forefoot. It features a knitted tongue for improved lockdown. The shoe boasts three LIGHTSTRIKE PRO layers, building a 50mm stack height. This novel midsole, nestled between two full-length foam layers, reduces weight and adds bounce to the fore- and midfoot. The Continental™ outsole ensures exceptional traction. The shoe's core, LIGHTSTRIKE PRO, is flanked by two carbon-infused plates to amplify responsiveness during the run, culminating in a more dynamic and efficient platform. 
Although illegal for elite racing, the ADIZERO PRIME X 2 STRUNG is permitted for ambitious runners aiming to smash their personal bests. The shoe represents adidas’ commitment to revolutionizing running in 2023.
