Updates to Adidas Runfalcon

  • Meant to tackle long-distance runs with a street-ready design, the Adidas Runfalcon aims to provide runners with comfortable and soft cushioning. This road running shoe has a supportive upper and durable construction.
  • The upper of the Runfalcon uses a combination of mesh and synthetic leather upper. These materials are meant to provide the foot a breathable and support wrap.
  • A lightweight EVA midsole provides the foot a very comfortable underfoot cushioning. The EVA foam is responsive and bouncy to help runners survive long-distance runs.
  • In the outsole of the shoe is a rubber material, which is designed to provide traction and durability. The rubber outsole is lightweight and flexible.

Adidas Runfalcon size and fit

According to some users, the Runfalcon runs one-size larger than the usual sizing. It is then advisable to fit the shoe first before purchasing a pair. Half sizes are available for both men’s and women’s versions. The shoe also comes in standard medium D for men and standard medium B for women.  

Outsole

In the outsole of the Adidas Runfalcon is a single-piece rubber material. It aims to deliver traction on varied paved surfaces while protecting the outer sole from abrasion. The rubber material also offers flexibility and added underfoot cushioning.

Midsole

To provide runners with soft and responsive cushioning, Adidas makes use of an EVA foam. It is lightweight and durable enough to provide consistent performance miles after miles. The EVA midsole is the same midsole technology found in the popular Adidas Duramo 9. This midsole is also made flexible to encourage a smoother heel-to-toe transition.

Upper

The upper of the Runfalcon has mesh and synthetic leather coverage. It wraps the foot comfortably and provides the foot with proper ventilation. The mesh is lightweight and flexible, it does not give the foot a constricting fit.

There is a synthetic cage over the midfoot which provides the foot added support. It also enhances midfoot security and foot lockdown.

Along with the midfoot cage is the synthetic heel cap. The lightweight heel cap is designed to give extra support and stability in the heel area.

The Adidas Runfalcon features a lace-up closure. Runners can easily adjust the laces to achieve the perfect fit. The laces are durable and they stay tied throughout the running activity.
