Updates to Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye

  • Versatile performance is at the forefront of the Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye’s creation, yet stylishness isn’t put aside. This road-companion has a grey-on-white-and-black color scheme that is reminiscent of a starry sky captured on a camera’s time-lapse feature. The textile upper resembles woven cloth, with a lightweight and form-fitting construction that is also breathable.
  • The Bounce midsole foam is responsible for carrying the foot throughout the running session. The reactive nature of this full-length unit energizes the toe-off. A rubber layer covers the entire underside of the platform, saving it from abrasion.

Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye size and fit

The Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye has a standard running shoe length, so runners are expected to purchase a pair with their usual sizing preferences in mind. When it comes to width, the variant is D – Medium as it is only available for men. The curved shape of the last and the form-accommodating nature of the upper welcomes the natural shape of the human foot.

Outsole

The AlpaBounce Space Dye is a road running shoe that uses a grippy rubber compound for the outsole unit of the Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye. It encompasses the entire surface area of the platform, shielding it from the debilitating effects of ground contact and continued use while also bringing traction.

Traction nodes are patterned on the contact points of the external pad. These circular nubs aim to heighten surface grip.

Midsole

Bounce serves as the Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye’s midsole unit. This full-length technology has a springy build that invigorates the toe-off. The same bouncy ride also helps to attenuate impact shock during the landing phase.

Upper

The upper unit of the Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye uses engineered mesh, a cloth-like material that offers a sock-like coverage. It has a color scheme consisting of streaks of black, white and gray, mimicking the faster-than-light visual effect when in space.

A one-piece opening graces this running shoe. The internal sleeve utilizes neoprene, a smooth textile that doesn’t irritate the skin.

An external heel clip made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) helps in steadying the back of the foot and preventing it from exiting the foot-chamber.

A pull tab on the back of the collar helps the runner when it comes to wearing and removing the Adidas AlphaBounce Space Dye.
