Multisurface outsole traction

The Arianna Cloudfoam uses rubber in its outsole. This compound is durable, flexible and capable of offering traction on most surfaces. It is also non-marking, which means that it won’t leave scuff marks on the floor.

Shock-absorbent midsole

The Adidas Arianna Cloudfoam features the Cloudfoam technology, a type of ethylene-vinyl acetate foam (EVA) that absorbs shock to keep the foot comfortable. It is durable, resilient and reactive to the movements of the foot.

The EVA foam extends to the medial and lateral sides of the upper. This structure delivers support for side-to-side movements.
