adidas SWITCH FWD Enhances the Potential of Athletes with Forward Motion Tech
 

Heel-strike running is a very common form among runners of every level, and one that can increase your risk of mild and moderate injuries, according to one study. Which is why adidas set about to create a pair of running shoes to help heel-strikers (and all serious runners) —and the result is game-changing.

 

 

The adidas Switch FWD features an experimental cushioning system that transforms downward pressure on the heel into forward motion. The high heel height and the angle of the EVA compound midsole ensures that heel-strikers can run more smoothly and with less fatigue, but will also drastically improve the motion economy of any full-gait runners.

 

 

Features like the TPU stability plate, Continental rubber outsole, unique tongue padding, and cut-out mesh upper makes these a truly comfortable and performance-friendly pair of running shoes suitable for beginner and professional runners alike.
