Runner's World Best Debut
"adidas is rethinking midsole materials and scrapping the standard EVA foam used in most running shoes. Instead, it's using a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) material found in the dashboards of BMW automobiles; 2,500 little plastic pebbles are fused with steam and pressure to yield the cushioning layer of a single shoe. The result is a midsole that is 'springy' and offers better cushioning than traditional foams, as confirmed by both our wear-testers and measurements in the RW Shoe Lab. 'It's a bouncy shoe, without feeling overly cushioned,' says Chris Donelly, of Maplewood, New Jersey. 'I felt in touch with the roadway, but there was a lot of play in the footstrike, in a good way.' The only complaint we heard about the Energy Boost is that the stretchy upper proved too snug for some runners with bigger, wider feet."
