Adidas Adizero Prime X: "Propulsive, but not crazy propulsive"
Yes, you read it right. Despite the Adizero Prime X having all the makings of a true speedster, experts still can't agree:
- Three layers of Lightstrike Pro for comfort, bounce, and energy return;
- Energy rods to give a kick during toe-off phases;
- Carbon-fiber plate to amp up the snappiness of the shoe
All of these and its hell of a stack combined, the shoe creates a very protective, cushy, and natural ride, suited for long hauls on the road. Runners also attribute the natural feel to the rockered shape of the shoe, generating seamless transitions while the plate is very subtle.
What and who is it for?
The Adizero Prime X from Adidas is a training shoe made for neutral runners who run the following:
Pace: Moderate to fast efforts, marathon pace
Distance: Long distance
Surface: Any road surface that's flat and even
- Overpronators and heavy runners
- Easy days
Note: The shoe can pick up the pace if you push it, it's just not inherently fast. It's bouncy but not the type that will push you forward.
