adidas alphaBounce Zip

Oct 2, 2017

Category: Gear

Rainy weather prompts one of two responses from runners; they either stay inside to stretch and recover, or grit their teeth and get out in it. Adidas’ new alphaBounce Zip challenges runners to take the latter option.

The new silhouette combines existing technology (BOUNCE cushioning and FORGEDMESH) with a thick water resistant upper, a zippered closure, and super grippy Continental outsole. That outsole is specially designed for providing traction on wet surfaces, and the shoe as a whole has been engineered for the demands of wet-weather running. Despite all of this heavy duty material, the running shoe weighs only 10.5 ounces – making it ideal for those who are looking to train for distance even during the colder months of the year. Three colorways will be made available; an all black, a blue and olive, and one in all grey.
