Updates to Adidas Duramo Lite
- The Adidas Duramo Lite was designed with a sense of simplicity. The design is understated, with the synthetic overlays matching the color of the upper of the shoes. The same overlay gives the shoes some structure and adds to its durability. The classic three bars logo from Adidas is also added as an accent to the shoes’ overall design.
- The upper is made up of a lightweight mesh material which promotes maximum breathability to the foot. The mesh also gives some degree of comfort as it hugs the foot with just the right amount, following its natural form.
- The outsole is made up of an Adidas developed material called Adiwear. This technology offers high-wear durability and non-marking characteristic to the outsole of the Adidas Duramo Lite.
Adidas Duramo Lite size and fit
The Duramo Lite is available in standard shoe sizes for both men and women. The same goes with the width the shoes come in. They are available in D –medium and B-medium for men and women, respectively.
The outsole of the Adidas Duramo Lite is made with a durable rubber that has been developed by Adidas. They call this technology as Adiwear. The company usually places this rubber under sports shoes to promote durability and long-lasting wear. This is the target for the Duramo Lite’s outsole.
The pattern of the outsole permits mobility and flexibility of the feet without much resistance from the shoes. This is made possible by several grooves and indentions that have been calculatedly placed on different target areas under the feet.
The midsole of the shoes was crafted using a foam material that provides moderate cushioning. This amount of cushioning gives the shoes a comfortable in-shoe feel while providing shock absorption with every step.
The air mesh upper of the Adidas Duramo Lite elevates the breathability and airflow of the shoes. The mesh material also adapts to the shape of the foot, providing a comfortable fit to the wearer.
The synthetic overlays help form the upper of the shoes. It helps define the outline of the shoes while giving it a degree of durability. This overlay runs from the lateral areas of the shoes going to the heel. The same overlay material can also be found on the toe cap.
The textile of the inner walls and the insole of the shoes are made with a soft, comfortable foam. This foam provides a good amount of cushioning.
The collar and tongue of the shoes are padded, providing that extra amount of comfort.
