It was exactly a week ago when adidas Energy Boost™ was formally introduced in the local scene and I was one of the lucky few to get a chance to experience adidas’ latest breakthrough.
The introduction was held in adidas’ office in Bonifacio Global City with no less than the head of marketing of adidas Philippines, Adrien Semblat, leading the introduction.
Using a steel ball, we witnessed firsthand how the new boost material returns back energy so much more than the EVA foam. But seeing is not enough: each of us were presented with our own adidas Energy Boost™ pair to actually play with! Here is a video from adidas to give you an idea of what we saw:
We tested our new adidas Energy Boost™ in Track 30th (just across Two Parkade) and let’s admit it, a few hundred meters is not enough to accurately test a shoe, but with this short run I have some observations about the adidas Energy Boost:
- Can be safely and comfortably worn without socks (I ran with it sockless)
- Fits like a glove for those like me with narrow feet
- No need to “break-in”
I guess we could all agree that adidas Energy Boost™ is a great shoe in terms of comfort, performance, and looks with the downside only of not having other colors to choose from aside from the current black with white and yellow accent (but if you’re willing to wait, more colors will come second half of 2013). As it is, it seems to be good for those long runs because of its light weight, great cushioning, and bounce.
Those who pre-ordered their adidas Energy Boost will be able to pick their pairs starting February 27, 2013 at adidas Two Parkade, Bonifacio Global City. For those who weren’t able to, what remains of the 200 pairs will be sold later at different adidas stores across the country with a SRP of ₱7,995.
Thank you adidas Philippines for giving me the opportunity to be one of the first to try the new adidas Energy Boost™ in the country! I’m now looking forward to my next long race because I’m so excited to take this pair for a long ride! 😀
