Here is the full review of the Adizero PRO !

Before the VaporFly, there was the Adios. The Adios was the weapon of choice for many of the elite athletes and there were dozens of world records broken in the Adios. Athletes loved how light the Adios was and how it offered a higher level of cushioning than normal racing flats.

The Adios Pro is part of the Adios racing family but is unlike any other Adios shoe. Looks wise, it’s more similar to the VaporFly Next% than the Adios 5. It has a thick midsole with a high toe-spring and a multitude of new technologies.

The Adios Pro was developed with the help of elite Adidas athletes Joyciline Jepkosgei and Rhonex Kipruto who assisted Adidas with understanding bending stiffness, energy return, geometry and mass reduction.

The First Shoe in the World to Feature EnergyRods

EnergyRods are carbon-infused rods which mimic the metatarsal bones of the foot. These EnergyRods reduce physical impact on the body while they also help runners maintain speed and optimise running economy, similar to a carbon-fibre plate.

The Introduction of LightstrikePRO

Adidas has finally let go of Boost in their new flagship racer. Adidas claims that LightstrikePRO is their lightest and most responsive foam to date and it provides maximum cushioning and more energy storage. There is also a carbon-fibre plate in the heel which is supposed to provide extra stability and promote a smoother ride.

How Does the Adios Pro Differ From the Adizero Pro?

Both shoes are intended for racing. The Adizero Pro has a low stack height with a full length, top-loaded carbon-fibre plate. The midsole of the Adizero Pro consists of Adidas’ tried and tested foams: Lightstrike and Boost. The Adizero Pro is more of a conventional racer with an added carbon-fibre plate.

The Adios Pro is a high stack height racer with a carbon-fibre plate in its heel and EnergyRods in its midfoot and forefoot. Its midsole is made from the brand new LightStrikePRO foam which is more responsive, lighter but less durable. The Adios Pro competes with the VaporFly Next%.
