The shoe production company, Adidas has just launched a new collection of the lightest racing shoes named Adios Pro Evo 1. The shoe is said to weigh just 138g. Lighter footwear increases the possibility of attaining greater speed in racing competitions. 


The newly innovated shoe is the lightest weight of all the racing shoes invented by Adidas as it is forty percent lighter than the previous racing shoe inventions. The shoe is designed with the latest technology to reduce the weight on feet and in return, will provide racers with more energy to help them increase their running speeds.


The athletic apparel industry has been influenced heavily by Adidas, which has established a strong and unwavering voice in the field. The new Adios Pro Evo 1 is proof of this.


For nearly a century, Adidas has remained dedicated to catering to the needs of athletes, just as its founder Adi Dassler intended. Their products are designed to eliminate problems and improve performance.

Adi Dassler,  the founder of the German shoe company, started its production in 1924, and his first running shoe got global recognition after Lina Radke wore his shoes during the 1928 OOlympicgames and won the gold medal, same as Jesse Owens in 1936.


Patrick Nava, the running and credibility at Adidas said, "We set the goals for ourselves, to create the racing shoe that is technology oriented and every ambitious runner is in love with the Adizero franchise but we now have a lighter weight shoe that no one has ever seen before. We have explored all compositions of a racing shoe and we did a balance of what could be changed or removed to reduce the weight."


The Adios Pro Evo 1 is designed to help determined runners achieve their fastest race times by incorporating the latest technology for road racing.


Insights were gathered from iconic athletes throughout the production process at the testing and training camp in Kenya and the headquarters of the Adidas lab in Herzogenaurach, Germany. Also,  more information was obtained from Amanal Petros, the German national champion, and Tigist Assefa, last year’s Berlin marathon winner. 


Assefa gave his word of trust after testing the new racing shoes. "These are the lightest weight racing shoes I have ever seen and worn, the feelings I got running in them are extraordinary, they aided me to focus more on my race which is the exact thing you need as an athlete. I can't wait to lace up and defend my title in Berlin with the shoes," he said.
