Created to enable athletes to break new ground in long-distance running, adidas presents the adizero Sub2. The shoe is in turn designed to deliver the best of adidas running technology in an extremely fast, lightweight form, and more specifically take athletes below the two-hour barrier while marathon running.
“adidas adizero Sub2 is a significant milestone in the brand’s Sub2 program and central to the future of adidas running,” said André Maestrini, Global General Manager, adidas Running. “Around the London Marathon in 2012, we started thinking about Sub2 as a concept and adidas’ role in achieving what was deemed impossible. We began creating a shoe that could enable this, and Wilson is the perfect athlete to test our innovation in a race environment. We’re incredibly excited to see where this can go.”
The adizero Sub2 marks the debut of adidas’s new BOOST Light innovation, the brand’s lightest-ever foam, retaining industry-leading energy return that has powered adidas athletes to world records. The upper is then comprised of one single layer of ultralight fabric, featuring a weight-reduced mesh with internal reinforcements and advanced Microfit, which has been developed to create the best support, comfort and fit for high-speed road racing. Maximum grip is in turn achieved thanks to the implementation of a Continental Microweb outsole.
The shoe will be debuted at this Sunday’s Tokyo Marathon by former world record holder and adidas athlete, Wilson Kipsang.
“I have a great history with adidas and it’s an honor to be the first person to wear the adizero Sub2,” said Kipsang. “BOOST was a game changer for me. After working with adidas on BOOST Light, I’m absolutely ready to get out on the course in Tokyo and show the world what we can do.”
You can also look forward to the adizero Sub2 becoming available later this year.
