adidas Unleashes Explosive Energy with Springblade

Manila, February 2014 – Today adidas launches Springblade in the Philippines, the first running shoe with individually tuned blades engineered to help propel runners forward with one of the most effective energy returns in the industry.

Unlike standard EVA midsoles that deliver energy return in a vertical direction, Springblade features 16 forward angled blades made out of a high-tech polymer.  The highly elastic blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy to create an efficient push-off that feels like you have springs under your feet.

“Springblade’s progressive look and blade technology are radically different than any running shoe ever created,” said James Carnes, global creative director of performance at adidas.  “At the same time, adidas’ goal is to create a beautiful performance shoe designed to be simple and intuitive.”

Carnes continued, “Every aspect of Springblade is engineered to reflect extensive athlete insights to help make them better.  For design inspiration, we drew upon everyday objects that deliver explosive energy return – everything from springboards to pole vaults and motorcycle suspensions.”

Each blade is precisely tuned in geometry, thickness and position for each phase of a runner’s stride to provide support and a full range of movement. Additionally, Springblade’s flexible construction was designed to hug the top of a runner’s foot, locking it in to harness the energy returned from the springs on the outsole.

“adidas is continuing to develop new innovations based on what athletes not only need but demand,” said Mikal Peveto, director of running at adidas America.  “We know we have something special with BOOST cushioning introduced earlier this year and we’re confident Springblade will set us apart from the competition once again.”

Peveto continued, “Six years in the making, Springblade provides one of the highest energy returns in the industry.”

aIT (adidas Innovation Team) tested hundreds of materials to ensure each spring produced maximum energy efficiency with every step and conducted rigorous ballistics tests to maintain long-lasting durability.  For top performance in all environments, Springblade is seven times more temperature resistant than shoes with adidas’ standard EVA cushioning.

Springblade is available for ₱8995 on February at adidas Bonifacio High Street, Mall of Asia and Planet Sports Power Plant (Rockwell).

Apple Chronicles: Hello Again, San Francisco!

As I only have one free day in California, I decided to spend it in one of my favorite cities in the world: San Francisco.  It’s been more than three and a half years since I’ve last been here and I still have some unfinished business to settle.

For those living south of Metro Manila, looks like you’ll have a new playground to look forward to!  And I am definitely envious!  Take a look at this development by Ayala Land.  

Apple Chronicles: California-Bound

After spending the week, it’s time to move onto my next business destination, California.  This would be my first domestic flight in a foreign country in over eight years!  It’s a lot less glamorous though than my earlier flights as I went on economy class. This is part of a series ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ ⚪️ […]

It’s the third day of the year.  New Year’s two days ago already.  Yet, it’s not too late to start.  And I, am doing just that.

Best Nine of 2017

I can’t believe that we are now on the last few days of 2017!  As much as I’d like to say that this year flew by quickly, I also realized that a lot of things also happened that seemed like so long ago.  And there are nine experiences that made this year very memorable for me.
