STRETCHWEB designed outsole of Supernova ST

The Supernova ST uses the STRETCHWEB design in the outsole to ensure flexibility. It has a webbed pattern that runs the entire length of the external sole unit. Spaces and grooves assist in keeping the platform flexible. Slightly elevated nubs enhance traction.

The rubber compound that’s used for the outsole unit of the Adidas Supernova ST is manufactured by Continental™. Its purpose is to protect the rest of the sole unit from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also delivers traction, which is essential for all movements on the surfaces.
