Adidas is apparently pretty proud of of the adiZero line, porting over the super lightweight construction to a brand new runner in the form of the adidas adiZero Rush. This one actually comes in a bit lighter than the original look from the adiZero collection, clocking in at a mere 7.5 ounces. The other good news on these is that the slimmed down silhouette isn’t gutted out on the insides by any means, with an adiPrene+ midsole in place to maintain a sturdy level of cushioning. Will you be lacing up in these new runners anytime soon given the pretty significant success of the adidas adiZero on the hardwood? Check the extra shots after the jump as well as a quick promo spot for the adidas adiZero Rush, which is available now at the adidas webstore.
All the super lite stuff is kind of wrong for most when you think about it- only top level athletes actually need it that lite and are gonna replace them when they wear out, which is quickly. Most people hitting the gym or running a couple miles just to maintain their health would probably be better suited with something a bit more cushion and structured, in the long run.
Oh well. At least these look like they have more potential than those gawd awful Helliums.
Mizunos look hype as fuck compared to what they're actually competing with, which is Asics, Saucony and Brooks. Like the single freshest Actual Running Shoe you can get is the Nike Pegasus, just to illustrate how whack most of these things look.
This Adizero Rush looks neat but it's a shoe you wear on a treadmill for fifteen minutes, not one you run a marathon in. Unless you're just such an ungodly runner it doesn't even matter so you might as well rock chucks.
