Adidas moving from Light to Lightest to Minimalist

Adidas may have been a little late or rather a little new to be competing in the minimalist running shoe category but they have been working hard, researching and developing on a solution for the past several years which had now given birth to the adipure collection.

Unlike the recently release adipure Trainer which is a minimalist 5-toes training shoe which is for use in gym for workout and the Crossfit,  this adipure collection is design by Specialists from several field of sports medicine to ensure that an efficient runners will have the opportunity to improve their speed, strength and power over time running in them.

The adipure Collections is a complete range of Minimalist shoes for runners of all levels from beginner to advanced.  Whatever your running style, you can choose the shoes that are right for you so you can improve your running technique step-by-step.
