Updates to Adidas Adizero Feather 4

  • The 4th version of the Adidas Adizero Feather is a low-profile running shoe that delivers maximum comfort and flexible performance when tackling those races or training sessions. It has a minimalist vibe to it, with its subtle use of shades & hues, as well as a one-piece upper that moves along with the foot.
  • Highly breathable yet durable materials are used for the upper unit of this running shoe. They’re meant to deliver a comfortable and well-ventilated coverage that’s reliable and sturdy. A cloth-like disposition is observed in this section of the shoe, but it’s strong and it can last long.
  • The mid-sole unit of this running shoe uses a lightweight foam that’s durable and efficient in delivering comfort and cushioning. The material itself lasts long, so the underfoot experience remains in a standard of quality that is reliable.
  • One of the most dependable outsole rubber compounds has been used in the Adidas Adizero Feather 4. Placed in critical areas where wear and abrasion are most likely to occur, this rubber compound protects the shoe from the damaging effects of surface friction.

Adidas Adizero Feather 4 size and fit

The Adidas Adizero Feather 4 has a regular running shoe length. The men and women’s versions follow the standard measurements when it comes to this shoe size. The available width is medium, so it makes sure that the runner with a medium-sized foot is able to acclimate well to this shoe when wearing it.


Outsole

The ADIWEAR® is one of the most efficient outsole layer rubber units on the market. It essentially protects the shoe from abrasion and wear, but it is also able to make sure that the runner gets responsible traction when handling the surfaces. It’s a high quality material that lasts a long time.


Midsole

The CS LITESTRIKE EVA is a compound that delivers responsible cushioning and shock absorption, so that each step remains comfortable and free from any strain. It doesn’t have a substantial weight, making it a great mid-sole foam to get a speedy performance.


Upper

The Air Mesh is a material that covers the upper unit of this running shoe. The open construction of this fabric ensures that the foot is afforded a well-ventilated interior experience, while also maintaining overall support and responsible coverage.

The Engineered Mesh is a cloth-like material that gives additional comfort to the running experience of the wearer. It is not an unwieldy material, so it allows the foot to move more naturally without feeling limited by additional layers or stitched sections.

The Adidas stripes are bonded onto the upper unit. They make sure they maintain the structure of the unit, while also keeping a customizable fit that follows the preferences of the wearer. They cause the upper fabrics to react to the adjustments made to the lacing system.

A heel tab in the rear section makes wearing and removing the shoe much easier.

A lightweight, but responsive foam insole makes sure to add more cushioning to the foot immediately after stepping into the Adidas Adizero Feather 4. It fully supports the underside of the foot, making sure that throughout the gait cycle the foot is well-supported.
