adidas announced yesterday that they were combining Boost technology with the controversial Primeknit upper to create the adidas adizero Adios Primeknit Boost.
Seeing two of adidas’ most successful technologies, Boost and Primeknit, combined to create a simple silhouette is good to see in the running market where we’ve seen a decent amount of crazy looking releases this year. adidas unveiled Boost technology in February of this year and moved quickly to incorporate the TPU technology into many of their popular running models. Primeknit was originally announced (shortly after Nike Flyknit) in time for a limited release to run at the London Olympics last summer. The release and future plans were cut short due to a lawsuit with the Swoosh due to the similarity of the knitted concept. Since then, adidas has supplied Primeknit to athletes overseas but nothing in the US so hopefully this hybrid performance shoe will be the ticket to Primeknit stateside.
No release dates have been announced yet as the shoe is still in it’s testing phases, but expect to see this performance shoe early next year.
