With fitness goals topping many New Year’s resolution lists, Adidas is kicking off 2017 by rewarding runners with free sneakers.
On Wednesday, Adidas set up shop at random locations in Portland, Ore., to distribute shoes such as the AlphaBounce and Ultra Boost for its #WhyIRunPortland campaign. The brand said the giveaway was intended as a “thank you” to athletes for running.
The campaign was so popular that Adidas actually ran out of shoes. According to the local publication Williamette Week, the sneaker supply was depleted earlier than Adidas anticipated, effectively canceling some of the day’s scheduled stops. However, there were plans to continue the giveaway at a later time.
As enticing as free sneakers may sound, the offer isn’t available to just anyone. Williamette Week adds that Adidas was only handing out sneakers to people who were already actively out on a run, undoubtedly leaving many passersby disappointed.
If you’re not able to hit the streets of Portland for a run, you can still get your hands on the sneakers from the links below.
