Seemingly out of nowhere today, adidas introduced a brand new silhouette to its sneaker family. Aptly dubbed “AlphaBOUNCE,” the shoe has been specifically built for the needs of runners and hardcore athletes.
The AlphaBOUNCE was created using motion-capture technology to anticipate each undulation of the foot during a running movement. Its upper is made from a material that is the first of its kind called FORGEDMESH, making it seamless, while it’s also molded from a ribbed pattern for extra support. Supporting the FORGEDMESH upper is the BOUNCE midsole, which is made from an EVA foam to instill a feeling of weightlessness when in motion.
The AlphaBOUNCE is scheduled to release in “Core Black,” “Iron Metallic” and “Clear Grey” colorways, and is already available on the adidas online store for $100 USD. The additional colorways will arrive on June 20.
