1 ADIDAS

SOLARBOOST

$220, available on the adidas website and at select adidas retailers.

The future has arrived for your feet. The new Solarboost shoes are inspired by NASA engineering and feature Tailored Fibre Placement technology, which lays down fibres that feature Parley material content, so every single millimetre of the shoe is precisely stitched and constructed. The result is superior comfort, fit and support in a lightweight form so runners can move confidently at any speed or distance. Plus, at only 295g, it’s 15g lighter than the Energy Boost range, making you feel like you’re walking in space.

OTRUSKA PACK–NEW BALANCE 574 SPORT

A Russian-inspired collection, the Otruska Pack takes its design cues from the mythical two-headed hellhound, Orthus, as it represents attack in dual form, ferocity and deception. The New Balance 574 Sport has both of those with its sleek silhouette paired with aggressive red details and Fresh Foam technology, easily making it your beaters as it takes comfort to the next level.
