Updates to Adidas Vigor Bounce
- The Adidas Vigor Bounce is a trail running shoe that looks very appealing. It has a casual look that one might mistake for a footwear that’s more tuned for the roads. But this shoe has been optimized for soft and hard surfaces, thus allowing it to handle off-road terrains with ease. Also, durable materials were used to create this shoe, essentially enabling it to resist damage when exploring the great outdoors.
- Air mesh is used for the upper unit of this running shoe. It allows air to enter the foot-chamber in order to keep the runner well-ventilated throughout the running session. Printed overlays provide structure to the upper and they don’t let the fabric sag over time. An external ‘cage’ that’s made from synthetic materials keeps the foot in place and provides a secure fit.
- The mid-sole unit of the Adidas Vigor Bounce makes use of the BOUNCE™, a proprietary cushioning system that allows the runner to feel a bounciness to each step. It also protects the foot from landing impact when the foot strikes the ground.
- This running shoe has an outsole unit that’s optimized for the trails. Gripping lugs hold onto many types of surfaces with ease. They’re not too prominent, thus making them effective on stable paths. The rubber material used for this model is highly resistant to wear and tear.
Adidas Vigor Bounce size and fit
The Adidas Vigor Bounce uses regular measurements for length, which make the sizing schemes agreeable to the preferences of men and women. The available width for both genders is medium, so it is able to accommodate those with medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape naturally mimics the curvature of the human foot.
The outsole unit of the Adidas Vigor Bounce uses ADAPTIVE TRAXION™, which is made from abrasion-resistant rubber. It shields the mid-sole from wear and tear, while also providing reliable traction over the surfaces.
Gripping lugs make the outsole more agreeable when it comes to traversing paths that are tricky. Uphill and downhill treks become much easier because of this design.
BOUNCE™ is a full-length cushioning system that delivers a bouncy underfoot experience to the wearer. Such responsiveness causes the toe-offs to be much more explosive. It can also attenuate impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle.
Air mesh makes up the main upper cover system of the Adidas Vigor Bounce. As it wraps around the foot, it allows air to keep it cool and dry. Such a feature improves the overall comfort of the runner, even allowing them to use this shoe for long periods of time.
Printed overlays maintain the structural integrity of the upper unit. They won’t allow the fabrics to sag or look unpleasing as time goes by. They also assist in making the coverage feel snug.
A synthetic cage is placed externally and acts as an overlay system that locks down the mid-foot and the heel. Connected to the lacing system, this add-on adapts to the tightening or loosening of the shoelaces, thus providing a customizable fit.
