Notable Features

The Adizero Accelerator features a Sprint Frame on its outsole. It is a lightweight but supportive chassis, for a stable and fast ride. The Sprint Frame outsole is also exceptionally thin, but despite this, the comfort is excellent.

The Adidas Sprint Web is also incorporated in the shoe. It is a seamfree fabric web on the upper for lightweight support. It utilizes synthetic construction, which is minimal yet durable.

Another notable feature is the shoe’s CoolEver Mesh upper material. It is a mesh material made with a breathable clover-shaped pattern which helps the feet stay cool and dry. 

The Adizero Accelerator also has a microsuede lining that provides increased comfort to help reduce irritations and hot spots on high-tension areas of the foot.

Lastly, a LockDown Strap is located at the shoe’s forefoot and is a Velcro strap designed to maintain a secure fit.

Size and fit

The Adidas Adizero Accelerator is a unisex track shoe that follows men’s sizing. Women should be able to get the right fitting shoe size by going 1.5 sizes down from their usual measurements. The shoe features a wide width forefoot, and it uses a LockDown Strap to keep the foot secured in place. The Adizero Accelerator will accommodate athletes with low to medium foot volumes.


The Adizero Accelerator features a molded TPU outsole which is both durable and lightweight. The TPU Spike Plate is a full-length thermoplastic plate for optimized sprinting efficiency and lightweight durability. It helps the athlete reach maximum speed with comfort and ease.

The shoe’s molded six-spike TPU Plate provides ultimate energy return, along with letting the spikes dig in and grip the ground to help propel the athlete forward. A similar feature is seen in the Distancestar, which is also a track shoe from Adidas.


The Adidas Adizero Accelerator uses the SprintFrame for its midsole. The Sprint Frame is a lightweight but supportive chassis that helps with the shoe's stability and fast ride. It is created through Adidas' geometrical research. Lightweight yet supportive and robust, SprintFrame was inspired by the fluid design of bridges and their ability to support large amounts of weight.

The SprintFrame also helps in keeping the wearer's foot closer to the ground while at the same time delivering the needed support and proportion throughout the entire foot.

Usually cushioned by a PU insole, the sleek construction of the SprintFrame chassis keeps the shoe lightweight.


The shoe's upper is built with a synthetic upper that is designed to be ultra-lightweight and high speed over shorter distances.

The shoe also incorporates a LockDown Strap which is a hook and loop support strap. It fastens over the forefoot area to lock down the fit. It then secures the shoe to stay in place when running.

An engineered mesh material covers the heel to add extra ventilation and further breathability, ensuring your feet stay cool and dry.
