Editor’s Notes: Following the debut of tis first-ever Parley Edition of the adizero Prime, adidas now unveils its first high-performance 3D knitted sprint spike — the adidas Prime SP Parley, worn exclusively by Olympic champions Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Wayde Van Niekerk at the IAAF World Championships, currently taking place in London, a biennial athletics event organized by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
The silhouette focuses both on the needs of sprinters, by incorporating a Primeknit upper for support and a laser welded frame for reduced weight, and the needs of the world, by integrating Parley Ocean Plastic to protect our oceans from marine plastic pollution.
400m world record holder Wayde Van Niekerk said of the shoe, “Choosing a racing spike is one of the most important decisions an athlete can make, but for this year’s IAAF World Championships there was no doubt in my mind that the adidas Prime SP Parley was the one for me. It makes each stride feels natural yet powerful and they are so light I don’t even notice I’m wearing them. I also love how the eye-catching color helps me stand out on the track.”
Also, Pharrell’s upcoming adidas Tennis Hu “Pastel” pack pays tribute to Stan Smith.
