adidas ADIZERO BOSTON 10 RUNNING SHOES
Imagine if every run could feel like race day? The new adidas Adizero Boston 10 is the ideal companion in your personal best pursuit, where every training session counts.
adidas Lightstrike provides you with responsive cushioning underfoot and the upper construction gives an abundance of flexibility, breathability and support.
NIKE AIR ZOOM ALPHAFLY NEXT% RUNNING SHOES
The Nike Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% is a racing shoe for the future of fast!
Gear up for your next personal best, as the responsive foam and 2 Zoom Air units combine to push your running game forward for your next marathon or road race. Ultra-light and super-responsive, the midsole material delivers Nike's greatest energy return yet; it absorbs impact and then expels it back out for a bounce-like effect.
NIKE ZOOM X DRAGONFLY RUNNING SPIKES
Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated release in running spike history, the Dragonfly is in such high demand, blink and you’ll miss them!
So, what’s all the hype about?
Light and breathable with a bounce to every step, the Nike ZoomX Dragonfly delivers the speed you need to stand out from the pack in races from 1,500 to 10,000 meters. Details throughout celebrate the power of sport rising to the challenge of the moment.
Ultra-light and super-responsive, the midsole material delivers Nike's greatest energy return yet; it absorbs impact and then expels it back out for a bounce-like effect. This energy-return technology reduces the use of superfluous muscle power, diminishing fatigue and enhancing performance, keeping you going for longer. The revolutionary ZoomX foam is manufactured from Pebax, a product conventionally used in plastic bridges and other moulded parts, and yields cushioning that is not only lightweight but soft AND springy. Until now, these three characteristics (collectively) have proven nearly impossible to achieve.
ASICS METASPEED SKY RUNNING SHOES
Focused on helping stride and cadence-style runners run even faster, the ASICS Metaspeed Racing Shoes are designed for runners who are looking for PB's in anything from 5k's to full marathons. With a carbon plate built into the midsole, this is a shoe that simply wants to go faster. Wrapping around your feet for a supremely comfortable and personalised fit, the engineered mesh on the upper of the Metaspeed Sky is designed to fit like a second skin. Extremely lightweight and responsive, the innovative FF Blast Turbo Cushioning will help to generate an exceptional response, to help you go and feel a lot faster. Upon every step, the midsole compresses before quickly snapping back to its original shape to give you an explosive response.
The sky really is the limit with the new Tokyo inspired ASICS Metaspeed Sky running shoes.
NEW BALANCE FUELCELL RC ELITE V2 VIP RUNNING SHOES
Joining the carbon revolution is the New Balance FuelCell RC Elite v2, designed to give you a competitive edge on race day.
This lightweight running shoe features an ultra-lightweight knit upper that delivers comfort and breathability in equal measure.
The FuelCell midsole compound is a nitrogen-infused foam that cushions, provides springy rebounds and delivers long-lasting performance. The midsole further absorbs the shock and negative impact forces on heel strike, reducing stress and strain on the foot muscles and joints, reducing the risk of injury. A full-length carbon fibre plate further increases the bouncy, limitless feel of the shoe, helping you feel unstoppable.
