Enhanced shoe tractions with the Adidas AlphaBlounce AMS outsoles
The outsole of the Adidas AlphaBlounce AMS is made of an abrasion-resistant material called adiWEAR. This material is rubbery, non-marking, and very durable. It has been formed into circular nubs that have been positioned on different pressure points under the feet. Aside from the nubs, wave patterns have been set to further enhance the traction of the shoes.
Adidas' Bounce technology in the midsole
The midsole of this shoe is made up of Adidas’ infamous Bounce technology, which was introduced in the original version of the Alphabounce. It is a material that provides a springy sensation to every step. The Bounce technology on the AlphaBounce AMS is firm yet responsive, making the running experience feel adaptable.
Lateral ridges found on the upper can also be found on the midsole.
The insoles of the Adidas AlphaBounce AMS are removable. If additional support is needed, as with the case of runners with overpronation, the inserts can easily be replaced with orthotics.
The Adidas Alphabounce AMS FORGEDMESH upper
The FORGEDMESH upper offers both support and a custom fit to the wearer. The stretchy characteristic of the material allows certain areas of the upper to adapt to the shape of the foot as well as the foot’s action with every movement.
The construction of this shoe is sock-like. The inner lining, as well as the tongue, is made of a soft textile that provides a snug fit. Both sides of the tongue are sewn in, simulating the experience of putting on a pair of socks.
As for the lacing system, the AlphaBounce AMS was designed with five eyelets and a lacing system that’s less traditional in pattern. The setup of the lacing system further secures the correct fit of the shoe on the foot.
A molded heel clip is placed in the rear section of the upper unit. It keeps the heel in place and prevents it from accidentally exiting the shoe.
A pull tab in the rear section makes it easier for runners to insert their feet into the shoe.
