Who should buy the Adidas Microbounce T1

Those who are looking for a fashionable and responsive sneaker that is orthotic-friendly, the Adidas Microbounce T1 will be an excellent choice.

How to wear the Adidas Microbounce T1

This Adidas sneaker can be worn with tracksuits and jeans since this can be used both on the tracks and on the streets. Some recommend pairing the yellow Microbounce T1 with a slim light blue denim or all-black denim.

Weirdly beautiful midsole of the Microbounce T1

The Microbounce T1 is dressed with a weirdly beautiful midsole that is inspired by the early 2000s technology. The overall silhouette of the shoe is a fashion statement that bounces back negativity with a smile.

The black Adidas Microbounce T1 is most famous for its pastel-colored Bounce midsole. The spring pods on the midsole come in turquoise green at the forefoot, then baby blue on the midfoot, and it finishes with light pink at the heel area.

The Microbounce T1 uses circular compression units that flatten and snap back into their regular position to absorb and return the impact.

Reflective material

The shoe features a 3M reflective material around the rim of the shoe. 

Removable insole of the Microbounce T1

The insole of the shoe is also removable. Once you remove the insole, you will see right through the bottom of the shoe. The insole is heavily padded and cushioned to make up for the fact that it is the sole cushioning inside the shoe.

Other parts of the Adidas Microbounce T1

The shoe features a glossy patent leather mudguard for extra shine.

It also has an iridescent blue on the tip of the toe.

A nylon pull tab is found on the heel and tongue to assist in wearing the sneaker. 

A bounce logo on the tongue and three stripes on the lateral and medial side of the shoe are placed for branding.

A Bounce logo and Adidas emblem is also placed on the outsole.

Adidas digs up from its archive the Microbounce T1

Back in 2008, this silhouette was introduced because Adidas Running wanted to try something new. It features a split, open-air midsole, which was intended to propel runners better forward. 

This open-air midsole is known as the Bounce technology, and it comes in three parts. 

The lower semicircle uses a stiffer and more compressed rubber for stability and durable underfoot. 

The middle piece is a flat rubber that separates the upper and lower semicircle, providing lateral stability throughout the shoe. 

The upper semicircle is a softer rubber that provides cushioning.

Today, it comes back as a lifestyle sneaker. Despite its unique style, some sneakerheads find the overall silhouette of this retro Adidas sneaker similar to the profile of Nike’s Air Max 97.
