Provides ultimate energy return

The shoe’s molded six-spike TPU Plate provides ultimate energy return, along with letting the spikes dig in and grip the ground to help propel the athlete forward. A similar feature is seen in the Distancestar, which is also a track shoe from Adidas.

The Adidas Adizero Accelerator uses the SprintFrame for its midsole. The Sprint Frame is a lightweight but supportive chassis that helps with the shoe's stability and fast ride. It is created through Adidas' geometrical research.

Lightweight yet supportive 

Lightweight yet supportive and robust, SprintFrame was inspired by the fluid design of bridges and their ability to support large amounts of weight.

The SprintFrame also helps in keeping the wearer's foot closer to the ground while at the same time delivering the needed support and proportion throughout the entire foot.

Enhances high speed over shorter distances

Usually cushioned by a PU insole, the sleek construction of the SprintFrame chassis keeps the shoe lightweight.

I race distances between 800 meters and 10K whether it be on the track, the roads, or on cross country courses. My typical training consists of easy days, long days, workouts (fartleks, tempos, interval training, etc.). My typical training paces range from 7’30 a mile on easy days to sub-5 minutes a mile on fast interval days, and with many paces in between. I run anywhere from 40-60 miles a week. My personal bests are 2:00 for 800m, 4:30 for 1600m, 9:50 for 3200m, 15:57 for 5K, and 34:10 for 10K.
