I never fully understood the importance of having a good running shoe until I actually began training for my first 5K last year. I realize that footwear is important but I didn’t necessarily understand why one shoe was better than another. I have since learned quite a bit through trial and error. Not the funnest way to learn but I gotta say it’s pretty effective.
Adidas has reached out and is offering a giveaway of their brand new adiZero Rush Women’s Running Shoe and these are a pair of shoes that runners can appreciate! They are incredibly lightweight. I was completely blown away by how they felt on my feet!
adiZero Rush – Women’s Running
These super light new shoes from the adiZero collection prove less is more and scream fast. Weighing 6.3 ounces, their unique construction and internal SprintWeb enhances breathability and support while nylon mesh keeps the foot locked in for speed and stability. One of the lightest in their class, these shoes provide plenty of resilient cushioning that ensures runners will train hard and race hard by turning up the speed.
“At adidas, our goal is simple. We design and engineer lightweight shoes to make athletes of all levels of sports faster so they can perform better on the track, the field and the court. We know seconds make the difference between first and second place or a personal best effort.”
Breathable tongue: Perforated lining to enhance breathability in the key vascular area of the foot.
External/Internal SprintWeb: Ultra thin, high-frequency fused trims deliver seamless, lightweight support. The extremely lightweight, full-length chassis SprintFrame plate provides energy to each stride.
Zero mesh: Lightweight, breathable and structurally superior rip-stop nylon mesh keeps your foot locked in speed conditions combined with the lite strike EVA lightweight foam compound that reduces midsole weight by 15% without sacrificing performance.
adiPrene+: Resilient cushioning compound in the forefoot to ensure a responsive, dynamic toe-off.
adiWear: Extremely durable rubber outsole compound allows for a more minimal usage to ensure lightweight abrasion protection.
