You didn’t think that adidas was going to go to court over the whole Primeknit technology, win the rights to still make the sneakers, and then do nothing with it-did you? Proving their dedication is the adidas Primknit 2.0, the latest of woven shoes to come from the Three Stripes. The upper is a single layer affair made to cut down on weight and waste and the bottom features the adidas adiZero Adios 2 ride, one that holds the distinction of being the fastest marathon shoe on the market. Continue reading for the full preview and look for the black/white colorway at select adidas retailers now.

Didn't consider adidas in a while, but these shoes are actually very nice. Yeah, nicer than nike flyknit as they are more shoes than just socks with an outsole attached to them.

@jlitterello The sad thing is, adidas can do quite well without trying to constantly have a reply to what Nike is releasing.  They might have had this knit technology first, but Nike seems to know better how to make a shoe that looks good with it, put one out first, and is still making a nicer knit shoe in a wider variety of styles. 

If the competition pushes the prices down, though, I'm all for it.  There's no reason why these flyknit things should be $170 when the construction process is entirely automated.  Unless there's a high error rate driving up the unit cost (like in flat screen TVs), one would think these shoes might be cheaper to make.

@baby gerald I'm pretty sure a scumbag formally under contract with Nike leaked the knit process to adidas and not the other way around.

Also, it takes longer to construct the knitted upper compared to traditional die-cutting from a roll of fabric. Length of manufacturing time is definitely factored into total cost to produce, which is why shoes like the Nike Inneva Woven are so expensive (hand-woven upper).
