Good to know

  • Adidas introduces a running shoe for the ladies that features a supportive structure and a stable, versatile performance – the EdgeBounce. This shoe displays a women-specific design that gives it an adaptable quality, making it suitable for both the road and the gym.
  • It uses a stretchable mesh upper that provides a foot-cradling coverage, therefore allowing a breathable and adaptive comfort.
  • The Bounce™ midsole of the EdgeBounce offers flexibility and underfoot comfort that effortlessly handles the impact from running on a variety of surfaces. True to its name, Bounce™ delivers an optimum level of responsiveness to keep the runner going. It is paired with the AdiWear® outsole that gives the shoe a high-endurance capability, allowing quicker speeds without any restrictions.

The Adidas EdgeBounce has a fit that is true to size; thus, runners are expected to find an accommodating and comfortable fit in their usual size preference. The shoe has an anatomical shape and a relatively high stack height, which makes it suitable for neutral pronators. Regarding width profiles, the Adidas EdgeBounce comes in the women’s B – Medium.

The EdgeBounce’s outsole structure is comprised of the AdiWear® rubber. This material is a proprietary development by Adidas, and it is designed to protect the shoe against wear and tear, thanks to its high-abrasion and durable characteristics.

A simple pattern makes up the layout of the outsole. It has numerous sets of horizontal siping that contribute to the traction level provided by AdiWear®.

The Adidas Bounce™ midsole is built with structured components that deliver a light, energized quality in each stride. The Bounce™ comes in the form of a full-length foam that stretches when pressure is applied to it and reverts to its original figure when the force is removed. This action-reaction mechanism results in an ultra-responsive gait cycle.

A custom-fit sock liner supplies additional cushioning and protection to the underfoot. It works using an internal-fit system that enables an effortless and efficient method of tightening or loosening the fit around the midfoot accordingly.

The upper of the Adidas EdgeBounce is created through the use of a seam-sealed, stretchable mesh material.  The elastic quality of the mesh permits the upper to wrap around the foot for a customized and comfortable fit.

The mesh upper also provides the foot with a breathable coverage. The perforated vamp lets in just the right amount of airflow that is necessary to keep the foot healthy and well-ventilated. Meanwhile, the shoe’s fabric lining produces a soft and smooth in-shoe environment to reduce skin irritations.

A set of minimally-designed overlays could be seen around strategic areas in the EdgeBounce. Not only do these bring a supportive fit, but they also help in keeping the structure of the shoe intact.

A pull-tab can be found at the rear collar of the Adidas EdgeBounce. This detail assists the wearer in putting the shoe on and off with absolute ease.

The tongue and collar are equally and sufficiently padded to bring a comfortable fit for the user. Like the collar, the tongue also has a pull-tab that makes it easier to adjust to fit better.
