adidas aims to shock once again with the release of the Adizero Prime X, which sits at the top of the World Athletics Banned Shoe list. Designed to be the fastest shoe adidas offers, they feature three layers of Lightstrike Pro, which provide maximum cushioning and supreme responsiveness. In addition, the midsole has a more aggressive look with some of the foam removed, revealing the carbon fibre Energyrods, which provide a lightweight stiffness and limit the energy loss at toe-off. In addition to the rods, there are also speed blades for even more response. The rubber on the outsole works like slicks on a formula one car; while it may look like it doesn’t provide much, believe us, it does! The Adizero Prime X also sees a section of Continental rubber at the toe-off to guarantee the best possible release from each stride.
