“Choosing a racing spike is one of the most important decisions an athlete can make, but for this year’s IAAF World Championships there was no doubt in my mind that the adidas Prime SP Parley was the one for me. It makes each stride feels natural yet powerful and they are so light I don’t even notice I’m wearing them. I also love how the eye-catching color helps me stand out on the track,” said Wayde Van Niekerk, 400m world record holder, regarding the shoe.

The release date for the Prime SP is yet to be announced. But rest easy, cause Running Shoes Guru would be around to drop news for this soon.
