Editor’s Notes: adidas has officially introduced a new challenger to Nike's NEXT% line, the adizero adios Pro. Designed for athletes to be faster on longer runs, the sneaker debuts the brand's all-new innovation known as EnergyRods.
Five tuned carbon-infused rods come together to make up the EnergyRods, which ultimately mimic the metatarsal bones of the foot. These rods help runners maintain speed for longer periods of time, improving running economy while creating less impact on the body.
adidas worked with elite athletes including Joyciline Jepkosgei and Rhonex Kipruto to develop the adizero adios Pro. The runners provided the brand with quality feedback during the design process, leading to the subsequent creation of the shoe.
"To create the best, we knew we had to work with the best," said Robbie Paterson, Footwear Development Manager, adidas Running. "Thousands of kilometers, months of testing, and dozens of prototypes, went into something designed to help athletes run faster, for longer but with the same energy, than ever before."
You can register beginning today — via the adidas app — for the chance to purchase the adizero adios Pro in the signal coral and white colorway on June 30.
