adidas Running‘s record-breaking adizero line is charging ahead in 2020 with a brand new adizero Pro distance shoe. Crafted by the influential Yoshitori Omori — a longtime adidas collaborator who’s worked with the brand for more than two decades — the shoes use a sleek new last created in Japan, the original birthplace of technical running footwear.

Apart from the master-crafted last and speedy black, white, red color scheme, the adizero Pro is packed full of the Three Stripes’ very best performance technology. Uppers are constructed of CELERMESH, a new single layer synthetic that boasts an internal support structure for lockdown. Meanwhile, midsoles combine two cushioning systems that any adidas loyalist is sure to be familiar with: LIGHTSTRIKE and BOOST. Although LIGHTSTRIKE has been present in the Trefoil’s basketball footwear since 2018 and was recently utilized on James Harden‘s Harden Vol. 4, this marks its debut on running footwear. A light TPU foam, it combines energy return and stability in equal measures. Encased in the LIGHTSTRIKE is BOOST foam, a soft, high-comfort compound that needs no introduction due to the popularity of the UltraBOOST line.

This dynamic duo surrounds a CARBITEX carbon fiber plate. Increasing flexibility and adding an extra push at toe-off, it guarantees maximum propulsion and a guided, smooth stride. Durable-yet-minimal Continental rubber outsoles complete the look.

“On race day, you need to know that you’re wearing the best equipment possible so you can focus purely on the running” says 4-time NYC Marathon winner Mary Keitany. “For me, the adizero Pro provides that peace of mind I need when I block everything out and get that tunnel vision.”

The adidas adizero Pro will release in select markets April 1, and then make a worldwide debut via the adidas webstore May 15. A retail price has yet to be announced.
