Thanks Tey and the Adidas Head of Running, Mr. Krishnan for introducing such a nice program offered by Adidas Malaysia.
This is a 'Wear-Test' program where the runner will be giving away a pair of high performance running shoe, then provide the frank & unprejudiced opinion about the shoes after 30 days of usage. The shoes that have been giving away are Adidas SuperNova Cushion, Adistar, etc... For me, I'm having Adidas Women's Boston.
This shoe is built with the impact absorber exclusively to adidas at the heel called adiPRENE®, and adiPRENE®+ at forefoot. adiPRENE® at the heel formed by a ball which absorbs the impact and providing a layer of superior cushioning to protect the runner from impact injury. Whereby the adiPRENE®+ enhance performance during toes-off.
The design of Boston also provides stability feature underneath the arch, while adiPRENE®+ giving the flexibility to the forefoot, the inner edge of your foot is protected by the stability feature that limit excessive inward rolling of the foot. This shoe is suitable for normal foot or wide foot as the design as similar to EE size.
I’m expecting to train in cool comfort with adidas Boston, ClimaCool® offers great cooling system for the entire foot. No doubts, this will be my next race (KL International Marathon) weapon! Gonna wear it for this Saturday's short run and this Sunday's Double Hill. Will keep posting on my feeling to the new shoe :)
