Somewhere along the way, your running shoe collection exploded all over your closet: one pair for track workouts, a super-cushioned pair for long runs, a lightweight set for tempo runs. Without realizing it, your quiver of running shoes became an overwhelming arsenal.
But what if one shoe could do it all?
Enter the new adidas Solar Glide, the versatile shoe that performs just as well on long and slow runs as it does on race day. Using aerospace engineering design, adidas has created a lightweight, fast, and fun shoe you’ll want to wear on every run.
Straight out of the box, the Adidas Solar Glide delivers an out-of-this world experience, thanks to a proprietary Boost midsole, which offers a stellar combination of cushioning and responsiveness. The turbocharged Boost material keeps every step charged with an endless supply of light, fast energy. Unlike other foams, which compress over time, the Boost stays fresh and springy, no matter how many miles you log. For a smooth stride, the Boost midsole utilizes a unique Solar Propulsion Rail to help support and guide the foot.
To add confidence with every step, the outsole is constructed from Continental™ Rubber, which allows for superior traction in all conditions. This Stretchweb outsole design flexes naturally with the foot, and a broad molded heel counter allows for natural movement and enhanced ground feel, no matter where your run takes you.
The Solar Glide features a breathable mesh upper, which features flex-fold ribs, modeled after NASA spacesuit gloves for their ability to provide support and stretch in all the right places. This optimal fit creates a secure and chafe-free running experience.
With a design that is both thoughtful and cutting-edge, the adidas Solar Glide will quickly become your go-to pair for every run.
