Updates to Adidas Aerobounce ST 2
- The Adidas Aerobounce ST 2 is a road companion that’s created for those who have overpronated foot motion. It features a supportive yet springy underfoot cushioning unit, as well as an arch-stabilizing compound in the midfoot area.
- A breathable mesh serves as the upper unit of this running shoe. The material is light and flexible. It is bolstered by thin overlays and a TPU band that goes from the midfoot to the heel. A cushioned interior chamber holds the foot in place and keeps it steady.
Adidas Aerobounce ST 2 size and fit
The Adidas Aerobounce ST 2 was designed using standard measurements. Runners are encouraged to get a pair that follows their usual sizing choices. The available width profiles are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.
The outsole unit of the Aerobounce ST 2 makes use of carbon rubber. This layer of protection is meant to last long as it is configured to resist abrasion. It is also responsible for the traction that the runner gets when traversing the roads.
Flex grooves allow the foot to move more naturally. These shallow trenches in the sole unit are elements that fundamentally enable the foam midsole to be adherent to the bending of the joints and tendons.
Bounce is one of the brand’s in-house technologies. This full-length foam has the job of cushioning the foot and keeping it safe from the impact forces generated during the foot-strike. It also offers flexible underfoot support.
A breathable mesh is used for the upper unit of the Adidas Aerobounce ST 2. This fabric offers ventilation and form-fitting support. It also has a lightweight build, which may prove useful to those who don’t want a cumbersome cover system.
Printed overlays made of synthetic material bolster the structural integrity of the façade. These add-ons also help in providing a snug yet accommodating fit.
A TPU band is fused to the fabrics of the upper unit. This element is placed on the sides and the back, and it’s designed to hold the heel securely.
The padded tongue and collar are intended to cushion the instep, the heel, and the ankles. These parts of the shoe are also tasked with locking the foot in place and preventing it from exiting the foot-chamber unexpectedly.
