Adidas has unveiled the brand’s latest all-around running shoes, the Solarglide 5.
Built with everyday running in mind, the Adidas Solarglide 5 is the latest addition to the brand’s popular Solarglide franchise. Designed to provide runners with the perfect fit, the shoe features a Bubble Boost midsole consisting of hundreds of Boost capsules which are fused together and said to deliver energy return in each step.
Working in tandem with an updated LEP, which fits between the Bubble Boost platform and the Control Platform, the shoe provides a smooth ride for runners.
Designed with the planet in mind, the Adidas Solarglide 5’s Primeblue knit upper is made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic. The product consists of yarn which contains at least 50% Parley Ocean Plastic – re-imagined plastic waste, intercepted on remote islands, beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing it from polluting our ocean. The other 50% of the yarn is recycled polyester.
The Solarglide 5 is testament to the brand’s ongoing drive to create a diverse range of products for both men and women, ensuring each athlete can select the most suitable shoe based on their individual needs. During the development phase, the team behind the shoe conducted a variety of tests to ensure the silhouette of the men’s and women’s Solarglide provided the best possible fit for male and female runners, respectively.
