Good to know
- The Adidas Mana Bounce 2 is a neutral running shoe that’s meant for the roads. It’s designed to provide a comfortable and secure running experience. Aesthetically, it has a smooth façade that follows the design philosophies of today’s footwear: less overlays and a non-bulky frame.
- The upper unit of this Adidas running shoe makes use of a soft mesh material that is durable and flexible. It covers the foot and keeps it locked in place. A set of thin overlays is printed onto sections of the upper, adding more structure to the façade while also keeping the fit as secure as possible.
- A full-length foam unit composes the mid-sole of the Adidas Mana Bounce 2. It cushions the foot throughout the running experience. A removable foam insole adds a bit more cushioning as needed.
- Externally, durable rubber protects the mid-sole from wear and tear. Placed liberally in the heel and forefoot sections of the sole unit, it makes sure to preserve the foam while also delivering traction.
Standard measurements were used in the making of the Adidas Mana Bounce 2. Regular sizing schemes are employed here. The available widths for the men and women’s versions are medium. It accommodates the runners who have medium sized feet. The semi-curved shape of this shoe mimics the natural curve of the human foot.
The outsole unit of the Adidas Mana Bounce 2 makes use of the ADIWEAR™. This proprietary rubber compound is also used in the popular Adidas running shoe, the Duramo 9. The ADIWEAR™ shields the rest of the sole unit from the potentially abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also delivers surface traction, which is essential when it comes to gaining control over the surfaces.
Flex grooves allow the sole unit to be more adherent to the natural motion of the foot, especially as it moves through the gait cycle.
The mid-sole unit of the Adidas Mana Bounce 2 features the BOUNCE™, which offers a bounciness to each step. It is also responsible for attenuating impact with every foot-strike. It runs the entire length of the shoe.
A molded foam insole is placed right above the main cushioning unit. Its purpose is to add a bit more cushioning for the foot of the wearer.
A closed mesh is used for the upper unit of the Adidas Mana Bounce 2. It’s breathable, so it is able to accommodate the flow of air into the interior of the shoe. The closed-construction prevents dust from entering the shoe.
Haptic print overlays provide structure to the façade of the shoe. These thin layers also provide support to the foot by adapting to the tightness or looseness of the lacing system. They’re not stitched onto the upper, so they won’t make the shoe look bulky.
