springblade adidas 7 900x651 adidas Springblade   Officially Unveiled

adidas bills their iconoclastic new Springblade as “the first running shoe with individually tuned blades engineered to help propel runners forward.” A novel approach to maximizing stride efficiency trades a traditional midsole for sixteen angular polymer blades that compress and capture energy, propelling you into your next step.

Radically different from what we expect from running shoes, this new Three Stripes design is one of the most intriguing new designs from a young decade that’s already given us ZigTech and ATV lugs; where does the adidas Springblade stand among the most innovative runners ever released?  We’ll have a better idea of the answer when after six years in the making, the Springblade debuts Thursday, August 1st for $180.

Adidas are definitely lost in the SneakerGame. They try to release innovative stuffs to convince people that they're still alive but they forgot a small detail: It's fuckin' UGLY!!!!!!

You guys'd better develop some nice CW for the Adidas Forums!

i think they're inspired by the prosthetics, as the used by Pistorius, lets put a lot of those in a sole and see what happens.

Glad to see adidas bringing new tech to footwear instead to just focusing on retroing everything.
