Updates to Adidas Alphabounce Trainer

  • The Adidas Alphabounce Trainer caters to both men and women who are in search of a training shoe that can keep up with high-intensity workouts. It uses the Forgedmesh upper which is stretchy to allow movements, yet supportive to keep the foot locked in place.
  • The midsole uses Bounce, a highly responsive cushioning platform. This foam technology also allows the foot to bend naturally but has a low profile that keeps the foot stable during weightlifting sessions.
  • The underside is lined with Traxion. This rubber material is intended to grip soft and hard surfaces so users can quickly change directions without slipping.

Outsole

The bottom of the Adidas Alphabounce Trainer is protected by the Traxion outsole. This rubber compound features a tread pattern with tapered edges that allows it to penetrate the ground and deliver a better grip, be it on soft or hard surfaces. It is also designed to relieve pressure points to prevent discomfort to the user.

Midsole

Cushioning and protecting the foot against impact is the Bounce midsole. This foam technology is engineered to be lightweight, durable, and flexible. It is also created to be responsive by converting the absorbed shock into energy to push off the ground. Another workout shoe from Adidas which employs the Bounce cushioning and has received mostly positive feedback is the Adidas CrazyTrain LT.

The platform is raised at the lateral and medial sides of the midfoot and the heel. It cups the foot to keep it steady during lateral and dynamic movements. It also has a low heel-to-toe drop to provide a stable base during weight training.

Upper

The Adidas Alphabounce Trainer features a seamless Forgedmesh material for the upper. This material is constructed to deliver a sock-like fit that hugs the foot for optimal support and comfort. The fabric is also stretchy, providing a custom fit that adapts to the movement and natural expansion of the foot.

The footwear sports a slip-on style. The stretchy instep allows it to accommodate the foot sliding in and out of the shoe, but the lacing structure permits users to customize the snugness of the fit.

The exaggerated collar aims to keep the Achilles supported. It also protects the rearfoot from chafing. A fabric overlay at the back of the collar forms two pull tabs that wearers can utilize when they’re putting on the trainer.
