  • The Adidas Alphabounce RC is a road running shoe that is best for those who have neutral foot motion. It uses the FORGEDMESH upper to ensure a more customized fit and proper air circulation.
  • The midsole features the BOUNCE material that delivers a more energized cushioning throughout the running activities.
  • Utilized in the outsole area is the ADIWEAR. This material aims to provide additional durability especially on high-wear areas.

The Adidas Alphabounce RC is available in standard running shoe sizes. With its stretchable upper, it provides an adaptive, comfortable and snug fit to medium-footed runners. This shoe has a standard D - Medium and B- Medium widths for men’s and women's version respectively.

Like its base shoe, the Adidas Alphabounce, the Alphabounce RC makes use of the ADIWEAR technology is in the outsole. It is described as a durable and non-marking rubber material that is highly resistant to wear and tear. It aims to ensure that the rest of the sole unit is safe from any abrasion. Its flexibility does not disrupt the foot's natural movement. It also provides added traction.

Featured in the shoe is the Adidas’s BOUNCE technology. This material is springier and more responsive when compared to other standard foams that are used in most shoes. When pressure is applied, structured elements enable the platform to stretch, then spring back into its original place when the pressure is removed. This material is essential in popping the foot forward in every stride.

New technology is integrated into the upper area of the Adidas Alphabounce RC, called the FORGEDMESH. Without any feeling of restriction, this mesh material allows the foot to undergo its natural range of motion. It can expand and accommodate the shape of the foot, making it feel secure and snug.

The possibility of wearing the shoe without a pair of socks is encouraged by the comfortable textile lining. This material is made up of smooth textiles, the goal of which is to eliminate irritation in the skin.

A breathable mesh tongue is integrated into the shoe for added support, especially on long-distance walking and running sessions. It also provides proper air ventilation.
