Adidas loves to employ its renowned Primeknit and Boost technologies on its sneakers, and the two make an appearance on the brand’s latest running innovation, the Pure Boost ZG Prime.
The Adidas PureBOOST ZG Prime, the brand’s latest neutral running shoe, is available now for men and retails for $140.
The Primeknit upper is designed, according to the brand, to provide a dynamic fit by naturally expanding with the foot, as well as reduce irritation while running. The brand’s Boost cushioning, a proprietary blend first introduced in 2013 that boasts thousands of capsules that store and release energy during activity, keeps the shoe responsive and helps keep it light.
The shoe also features a molded eyelet to keep the fit dynamic and hug the foot like a second skin, a molded heel cap, and an EVA outsole for a smooth ride. The shoe is light, weighing in at 8.7 oz. in a men’s size 9.
