Try BOOST Light with the adidas adizero Sub2

Posted on Mar 13, 2018 in Adidas


Over the last few years, the brands have been hard at work in helping the elite athlete run a marathon within 2 hours. For adidas, it was working with elite runner Wilson Kipsang, who had the fastest time last year during the 2018 Tokyo Marathon. It was quite unfortunate that Kipsang wasn’t able to break his own course record due as he was too weak to compete. However, he did hand over the adidas adizero Sub2 running shoe to the fastest adidas racers after completing the 2018 marathon.

Engineered for the elite athlete, the adidas adizero Sub2 is the most advanced, fast and lightweight running shoe by the brand with the Three Stripes. Unlike previous BOOST-laden runners, the adizero Sub2 features the brand’s new BOOST Light technology. Just like specialized basketball sneakers or athlete-specific cleats, the race-day-only performance silhouette is the essence of Adi Dassler’s standard: only the best for the athlete. The shoe features full-length BOOST Light, which is a lighter version of the very popular BOOST cushioning we’ve grown to love over the last 5 years.

The BOOST Light foam resembles the clouds on this marbled patter seen on the Sub2, reflecting how light the shoe could be. On the upper, we see a single-layerof ultralight fabric (not Primeknit), engineered  from reduced-weight mesh and advanced Microfit for superior support, comfort and fit. For its outsole, adidas and Continental co-developed the Continental Microweb which maximizes grip and reduces slippage.

The adidas adizero Sub2 was first pre-released back in September 2017 at the Berlin Marathon Expo to a select few. The shoe will be available this Thursday, March 15 for Php 8,500. The shoe will be available at, Second Wind, RUNNR (BHS), and select adidas stores (Greenbelt 3, Two Parkade, Trinoma, Glorietta and Powerplant).
