  • The Adidas Duramo brings out the ninth edition in the series, a versatile running shoe that continues to give the seamless fit and lightweight support that have been present in the previous releases. Aimed towards neutral pronators, the Duramo 9 is compatible with a variety of surfaces – from treadmills to light, rocky paths.
  • The reassembled upper targets a more contoured fit while also offering a less restrictive feel on the foot. The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) midfoot cage is removed in this version with the goal of providing a reduced amount of weight.
  • The sole unit remains to be the winning combination of Cloudfoam and AdiWear® technologies, working together to make the Duramo 9 a flexible, high-endurance shoe with a supportive fit. The unique construction of this shoe enables the wearer to run at any speed without restraint.

The Adidas Duramo 9 comes in medium width profiles for both the men’s and women’s versions. The shoe’s structure is intended to fit runners who have a low to moderate foot volume, as it aims for a snug an secure feel from the forefoot to the heel. The Duramo 9 also follows the measurements for a standard running shoe length.

The AdiWear® is a non-marking rubber material that creates a strategically-designed outsole. A proprietary technology from the brand, the AdiWear® has an abrasion-resistant property; thus, it is able to protect the underside of the shoe against wear and tear.

The outsole’s tread pattern includes a set of flex grooves that allow the shoe multi-directional mobility. This quality permits the foot to move freely and naturally for a smoother transition and quicker pace.

The Duramo 9 is equipped with another exclusive Adidas technology in the midsole – the Cloudfoam. This material is a made from ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) compound that produces the optimal level of cushioning. The Cloudfoam has a reinforcement at the rearfoot for a protective coverage and ultra-plush support.

With Cloudfoam, the need for additional sock liners is eliminated because of the superb instep sensation it delivers, as well as the organized support for the arch and heel. Cloudfoam reduces the risk of heel pain that is usually caused by running or standing for extended periods of time.

The newly-designed upper of this neutral shoe for running includes a dual-layer mesh-and-textile union for the combined benefits of breathability, comfort, and convenience. The mesh outer layer encourages airflow, while the inner fabric layer supplies a luxurious in-shoe feel.

Around the midfoot area, there are overlays that lend support and provide structural integrity for the shoe. These overlays are coated with Haptic print, a unique kind of wrap that gives a textured look and feel, meant for aesthetic purposes.

Both the tongue and collar are made of mesh with small piping at the edge and a light padding inside. These components serve as protection for the ankle and Achilles, while also working as elements to make the Duramo 9 convenient to wear.
