Conceived in 2002 by adidas’ Japan design team, the adiZero franchise was a hallmark in The Three Stripes’ running offerings for its minimalistic and lightweight approach. Continuing with this trend, the adiZero philosophy continues with two new Japanese versions of the lightweight performance footwear styles. From an aesthetics point of view, clean white mesh uppers incorporate Japanese flair with Japanese characters on the heel. The Mana comes in as a training model while the Pro is a racing model. adidas’ confidence in the adiZero line-up has led them to offer a 28-day money back guarantee to users of the adiZero Mana and Pro models.
