As we head into a summer that will see the trainer market once again dominated by running silos, adidas have unveiled their most technologically advanced running shoe, the Springblade.

Not designed for the street, the Springblade is the first running shoe with individually tuned blades engineered to help propel runners forward, claiming one of the most effective energy returns in the game. Delivering an energy return in a vertical direction, Springblade features 16 forward angled blades made out of high-tech polymer.

A striking design, the Springblade looks set to add an incredible innovation to the running market with its highly elastic blades instantaneously reacting to any environment, compressing and releasing energy to create an efficient push-off that feels like you have springs under your feet.

Following six-years of development including the testing of hundreds of materials, the Springblade features adi’s game-changing BOOST cushioning, the technical running shoe is all about energy return and it will definitely leave its mark.

Springblade is available from £130 at
