For 200 bucks, if you don't absolutely love this shoe, I might save my money for a pair of Ultraboost
Updates to Adidas Adizero Prime LTD
- The Adidas Adizero Prime LTD is a running shoe that’s designed for the neutral pronator. It has a minimalist look that caters to those who desire an uncluttered shoe-façade. Athletes who want to participate in lengthy running events such as the Marathon may appreciate the lightweight and flexible build of this product.
- A full-length boost™ unit is used for the midsole unit of the Adizero Prime LTD. This compound is responsible for mitigating the impact generated by the footfalls and bringing a sense of bounciness to the liftoff. Continental™ rubber is responsible for doling out traction over the asphalt.
Adidas Adizero Prime LTD size and fit
Standard measurements were used in the making of the Adidas Adizero Prime LTD, though it is worth noting that most of those who have tested this shoe claimed that it was half-a-size to a full size smaller than the usual fare.
When it comes to width, the available option is D – Medium. This shoe is a unisex option that utilizes the foot-dimensions of men. The Microfit fit configuration involves a snug heel and midfoot that ends in a slightly more accommodating forefoot. Stretchy fabrics help in achieving such a distinction.
The outsole unit of the Adidas Adizero Prime LTD utilizes rubber from Continental™. This compound is able to hold onto the surfaces with ease, allowing control over movement such as braking, swerving and turning. Mildly protuberant nodes aim to improve traction.
The heel part uses ADIWEAR®, a proprietary rubber that handles abrasion protection and long-term defense against the debilitating effects of continued use.
The midsole utilizes the boost™ technology, a full-length cushioning unit made of thousands of compacted thermoplastic polyurethane pods. The job of this product is to cushioning the footfalls and energize the toe off.
The Torsion System is composed of an exposed thermoplastic piece that’s placed in the midfoot section. Its task is to act as a foundation for the tendons and muscles of the underfoot, saving them from strain during the run. This feature is also present in the shoe's original version, the Adidas Adizero Prime.
Primeknit is a cloth-like upper unit that evokes the feeling of merely wearing a sock. Such a configuration allows the runner to experience a secure yet flexible and breathable coverage. The Adidas Ultra Boost 19 is another running shoe that makes use of the Primeknit upper.
A traditional tongue unit is not present in this product. Instead, a one-piece opening with a garter-like collar welcomes the foot and gives a locked-in wrap.
Flat laces go through stitch-reinforced eyelets, permitting easy adjustment of the tightness or looseness of the upper.
