Notable elements of the Adidas Purebounce+ Street

- Stylishness that’s mixed with a performance-centric design, that’s the design philosophy behind the Adidas Purebounce+ Street. This product was constructed to become a versatile companion when taking to the roads. The underfoot platform is made of Bounce+, a highly reactive piece that offers energetic steps. In-shoe steadiness is heightened by sidewalls near the back of the shoe.

- The upper unit of this road running shoe is made of a breathable, interwoven, and multilayered mesh. A set of thin prints supports the textile, bolstering its durability and keeping it from sagging over time. A generously-spaced crisscross lacing system helps with the attainment of a snug and secure fit.

- The Purebounce+ Street is different from the original Purebounce+ model because its silhouette is a traditional shoe with a cushioned collar and a conventional tongue unit; the latter features a slip-on design.

Size and fit

The Adidas Purebounce+ Street was designed to be true to size. Consumers are welcome to use their usual sizing expectations when choosing a pair. Widthwise, the available options are D – Medium and B – Medium for men and women, respectively. Those with medium or low foot volumes are the ones who are likely going to enjoy the in-shoe feel of this product.

Outsole

The external pad of the Adidas Purebounce+ Street is made of a thin rubber layer. The purpose of this material is to shield the midsole foam from the abrasive nature of the roads. It has a naturally grippy construction which allows it to cling to the ground with ease.

A bevy of oblong nodes pockmarks the outsole. These non-prominent lugs are designed to improve the grip capacity of the rubber compound, ensuring precise movement control on the roads.

Shallow flex grooves are integrated into the traction elements. These seemingly unimportant trenches are for the sole unit to acclimatize itself to the natural bending capacity of the foot, thereby enabling a well-realized step.

Midsole

Underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the Bounce+ cushioning unit, a highly responsive foam compound that runs the entire length of the Adidas Purebounce+ Street. This piece mitigates the impact shock that’s generated by the act of landing the foot on the ground, then transfers the energy to the foot and leg for an energetic forefoot lift. It doesn’t have a weighty profile.

The rear part has raised sidewalls to steady the heel and prevent it from wobbling.

An insole is put on top of the main midsole foam. The purpose of this add-on is to provide an extra oomph to the underfoot experience. It can be taken out of the inner chamber and replaced with a new one.

Upper

The upper unit of the Adidas Purebounce+ Street uses a breathable mesh. This multilayered and interwoven textile is meant to secure the foot and embrace its form. It has multiple pores for breathability and extra stretching capacity.

A set of overlays have been added to the sides of the façade. These synthetic prints are tasked with helping the fabrics when it comes to holding the foot and maintaining lockdown. They also heighten the aesthetics of the entire shoe.

A traditional lacing system is used for this model. Flat laces snake through discreet eyelets, encompassing the majority of the bridge of the foot. The construction isn’t as tight as other shoes, leaving an instep design that won’t easily pinch the skin or cause hot spots.

On the padded tongue unit and the cushioned collar are pull tabs that help the runner to widen the opening of the shoe and facilitate the entry or exit of the foot.
