AdiWear for maximum durability

Just like the popular Adidas Duramo 9, the Solar RNR's outsole is covered with the top of the line AdiWear carbon rubber for maximum durability with a touch of traction. There are several grooves that add flexibility while the regular rubber configuration provides a full-contact platform for every stride.

Optimal cushioning and shock dispersion

The popular and revolutionary Boost occupies the midsole. Made of blown TPU capsules, these energy pellets bond together at the exact time of every landing to cushion the impact and disperse shock. It flexes before takeoff for more dynamic returns.

Breathability and support with AirMesh

The upper is minimal in nature with an AirMesh that is super breathable. Running in hot weather conditions is ideal because of the kind of ventilation the Solar RNR offers.

A molded synthetic midfoot and heel overlay provide structure and support. Adidas’ iconic 3 Stripes form part of the plastic-like overlay.

Cupping the heel is a molded TPU that enhances the stable ride of the shoe.
