adidas Originals has officially introduced the adidas AlphaBounce ForgeFiber. The shoe comes equipped with new stitching technology inspired by body movement and the exploration of how organic cell structures grow. It utilizes TPU-coated yarn that’s then stretched and heat compressed in targeted zones. Making this version of the adidas AlphaBounce unique is that it provides 30% more resistance than your average construction and can behave in a variety of ways — depending on the sport — thanks to changes in the density and angles of the stitching.
Stitched with areas of stretch and support, the ForgeFiber upper adapts to your foot as it moves from push-off to touchdown. A flexible Bounce midsole responds to each footstrike with long-lasting cushioned comfort.
“The super flexible and strong ForgeFiber upper for a runner will provide enhanced lockdown and stability in the midsole for a smooth gait cycle,” said Jason McGinnity, a designer on the adidas Future team. “For basketball we want to be much more prescriptive in certain areas of the shoe, like on the lateral for heavy cutting.”
