Intended to be a flexible running shoe, Adidas Edge Flex is a perfect combination of comfort and style. This shoe is available in standard running shoe length, though it should be noted that a few consumers felt that it has a wide forefoot section. It is available in a range of sizes and numerous colors for both men and women versions. 

In the outsole of this running shoe is the TPU rubber material. This component is durable and generally lasts longer than the ordinary rubber. It is lightweight and designed to resist abrasion, splitting, oil, and chemicals. 

The TPU rubber is one of the usual components of Addidas rubber shoes. This material is also incorporated in the midsoles of other Adidas running shoes like the Ultra Boost, Ultra Boost ST and  Ultra Boost Uncaged. 

The outsole has a multi-texture pattern that is designed to provide strong grip and traction over concrete and hard surfaces, making the shoe perfect for gym, street or tack. 

The Adidas Edge Flex’s midsole unit uses Bounce+ technology to provide a very competitive cushioning performance. The Bounce+ midsole creates the ideal balance between durability and cushioning. It provides reliable support for the foot, giving a responsive and elastic running experience. Infused in the midsole is the support zones around the forefoot and ankles for added stability. 

This running companion utilizes an engineered mesh upper. The breathable fabric permits the air to flow easily, providing enough ventilation to keep the foot dry and comfortable. The inclusion of the padded heel collar in the upper unit allows the user to slide the foot in and out of the shoe fluidly, and its softness protects the Achilles tendon against injury and abrasion.
