- Collaborating with Parley Ocean Plastic™, Adidas has produced the Alphaedge 4D Parley. The Primeknit upper of this shoe is made via Ocean Plastic® technology, making the shoe’s upper construction entirely made out of upcycled plastic waste intercepted from the beaches and coastal communities. This upper material powers the breathability and flexibility. 

- Just like the Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged, the Alphaedge 4D Parley also features a Primeknit upper that boosts flexibility, breathability, and support. 

- Coordinating with Continental, Adidas still continues to feature Continental™ Rubber outsole that provides durability and extraordinary traction- regardless of terrain and condition. 

- Boasting one of Adidas’ newest innovations, its midsole is composed of Carbon 4D technology that enhances the ride and the energy return of the shoe.

The Adidas Alphaedge 4D Parley is available in standard sizing scheme for both men and women. You can purchase a pair of this neutral running shoe in your usual size preference. 

The Primeknit upper material of the Alphaedge 4D Parley allows a breathable and comfortable fit. It is created with the forged mesh of Adidas which permits the shoe to deliver flexibility and added security. Meanwhile, the lace closure of the shoe allows a customizable fit. For lateral support and improved security, the shoe features thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) overlays on the midfoot and on the heel. 

The Continental™ Rubber outsole of the Adidas Alphaedge 4D Parley is known for its durability. This helps protect the shoe from different abrasive elements when running. This also promises superb traction on different surfaces and conditions- may it be wet or dry. This outsole technology is also imparted to other Adidas running shoes. 

To exhibit that futuristic look, found in the midsole of the Adidas Alphaedge 4D Parley is the Carbon 4D technology. It is a 3D-printed midsole that enables accurately tuned support to the foot. This technology permits a snappy ride and a controlled energy return. 

It also features an open lattice for enhanced cushioning and dense lattice for extended support. 

Alphaedge 4D Parley’s Primeknit textile upper that is made with Ocean Plastic® technology features a knitted fabric, with yarns made entirely out of upcycled plastics, providing enough ventilation into the shoe to deliver that breathable experience when running while promoting environmental conservation. 

Primeknit also enhances the flexibility of the shoe to allow more natural foot movement. It technically adapts to the changing shape of the runner’s foot throughout the gait cycle. It is also widely recognized for being very lightweight. This material is also employed in Ultra Boost Uncaged. 

The Primeknit upper is constructed with a supportive forged mesh that grants sufficient breathability, support, and flexibility. 

The midfoot and heel of the shoe are furnished with TPU overlays that serve lockdown fit. These also enhance the stability of the foot, especially through lateral movements. 

A lace closure system is utilized by the Alphaedge 4D Parley. This allows an adjustable fit to the shoe.
