The direction for adidas performance, and more specifically, the adiZero line, is lighter and faster. They’ve been able to cut down the weight from every genre, from running shoes to basketball shoes, creating some of the lightest shoes ever made over the past year or two. The adidas running shoe category is the latest to benefit from adiZero technology, with the newly available adidas adiZero Feather.

As you might guess, the adiZero Feather weighs in at an almost unbelievable 6.2 ounces. One of the keys to reducing weight in this lightweight performance running shoe is the Coolever technology. It uses an ultra breathable mesh upper combined with a lightweight and supportive exoskeleton. Below the Coolever upper resides Sprint frame technology and forefoot adiPRENE cushioning, that a responsive ride. Strategically placed rubber reinforces the outsole in high-wear areas to increase durability. Black and Sharp Blue colorways are accented with Metallic and Electricity colored accents on the two available colorways.
