    The advantage to the runner is an upper design that should be flexible in all the right places and a bit firmer in others, whilst only having one seam where the entire seamless upper material is then curved around the sole and glued together.

  • 86 / 100 | Drop Date

    Despite the crazy amount of innovations crammed into the shoe Adidas have managed to stop the Primeboost looking too cluttered, keeping the same futuristic knitted ZX vibe that the (very very) limited edition Primeknit Pure Boost had, but beefing it up for more serious athletic use.

Updates to Adidas Adizero Prime

  • The Adidas Adizero Prime features the Primeknit upper technology. It delivers the same amount of breathability while being stretchable. It naturally expands with the foot for a more comfortable and irritation-free feel.
  • It also features the non-marking AdiWear carbon rubber that delivers enough amount of traction while giving added durability on high wear areas. It can survive the damaging properties of the road.

Adidas Adizero Prime size and fit

The Adizero Prime is true to its size. It delivers a snug fit in the heel and midfoot area. Similar to several other Adidas running shoes, it also comes with a medium sized forefoot that has enough room for toe splay. This shoe is available in standard D width for men’s and B for women’s.


Outsole

The outer sole of the shoe utilizes the continental rubber outsole that provides reliable traction on both dry and wet surfaces. The non-marking AdiWear carbon rubber delivers durability on high wear areas while improving traction.


Midsole

The Adizero Prime uses the brand’s notable midsole that is lightweight and soft. It is designed to deliver a more responsive and comfortable ride. The Torsion System allows the rearfoot and forefoot to move freely during the run for an enhanced stability. This feature helps the foot maintain a neutral pronation while on the move.


Upper

The upper of the Adidas Adizero Prime features the Adidas Primeknit that is engineered to give a comfortable fit. It expands naturally to adapt to the foot’s shape. This is also designed to reduce irritation and to give added support. It also comes with an external heel counter that wraps the foot securely and allows the Achilles to move. A similar running shoe that utilizes the Primeknit as its upper is the Adidas Ultra Boost 19.
