Fast is a personal feeling and what it means to ‘be fast’ is different for all of us. One thing that unites us, however, is the desire to have a shoe that feels fast on our feet. A shoe that combines a lightweight feel with cushioning and response. A shoe, perhaps, like the brand new SL20 from adidas?
Sounds pretty good right?! We wanted to know more though, so we packed our bags and headed out to Germany to meet some of the team behind the SL20. Join us as we get the low down on what to expect from this exciting new fast shoe.
Probably the most notable piece of tech is the new super lightweight Lightstrike midsole. This brand-new compound delivers a great weight-to-cushion ratio and also offers excellent levels of response. You can feel this when you put the shoe on. It doesn’t have the same level of ‘bounce’ that you get from BOOST, but the Lightstrike feels like it supports you through your stride and, coupled with the refined Torsion system, delivers a satisfying ‘snap’ as you push off.
The lightweight theme continues into the upper, which is constructed of a seamless, lightweight mesh. This engineered mesh offers a good fit, with just the right amount of give to allow it to adapt to your foot. It is well vented and the breathable material helps to dissipate heat, which should reduce the chances of blisters when you pick up the pace.
On foot the fit felt very similar to that of the adizero collection. So if you have worn any shoes from that collection you should be fine to stick with your usual sizing here. It hugs the foot, meaning you feel supported when running fast or changing direction quickly.
If you are looking for an accessible fast shoe for your next race, or a training partner for the hotly anticipated adizero Pro, the SL20 is a great new option from one of the industries most trusted running brands.
