Sammy Watkins Takes the adidas Springblade Drive for a Spin

Sammy Watkins is good. So good, that Buffalo traded a boat-load of picks to move up to No. 4 and get him in this past May’s NFL Draft. Now a member of the Bills, Watkins is using the adidas Springblade Drive to prepare for his upcoming rookie season in the NFL.

Inspired by the Energy Boost 2, the shoe comes in a one-piece heel to mid-fit cage to provide extra stability. The shoe’s 16 individually tuned blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy, while a 360-degree engineered mesh upper supplies breathability, comfort and premium detail.

The adidas Springblade Drive will be available online and in-stores on starting Wednesday for $180.
