Last Friday, I joined the AdiZero Gram Challenge at Adidas Greenbelt 5. I was invited to bring my own running shoe to pit against the AdiZero women’s shoe which weighed 245g. Of course, I brought the lightest shoe I could find in my shoe cabinet, dusted it off, and removed the insole to make it as light as possible. My shoe weighed in at 230g. Woohoo, I automatically got 20% off the AdiZero Boston, Aegis, or Tempo.
Had my shoe been heavier, I would actually have gotten a discount too as seen in this chart:
Shortly after the weigh-in, Adidas shoe expert Xavier went on to discuss the AdiZero line in more detail.
I also got to try the AdiZero Boston and AdiZero Tempo. The Tempo made it home with me. It’s scheduled for a road test tomorrow, but may I say in advance that it is one attractive shoe. More about it in the days to come…
