The adiZero F50 Runner 2 incorporates key adidas technologies and delivers the lightest in footwear without sacrificing an ounce of performance. The light weight is a result of the new SPRINTFRAME platform which replaces the conventional (more heavyweight) shoe construction, thus saving shoe weight. The platform maintains important performance characteristics such as comfort and stability, and allows for optimum forefoot propulsion. Fully integrated in the SPRINTFRAME platform is the TORSION® SYSTEM which allows independent movement of fore- and rear foot. The shoe upper also contains SPRINTWEB, a lightweight mesh construction achieved through a strong seamlessly bonded web for maximum comfort, support and breathability.

The shoe also features full forefoot adiPRENE®+ which propels the forefoot for an improved toe-off. The shoe includes a new tendon outsole design which increases the grip offroad and allows for perfect transition on the road and also contains extended FORMOTION™ which reduces the stress on the body during the transition phase by adapting to the foot’s natural movement.

The new adiZero F50 Runner 2 is worth P5,695, and is made available in the following stores: adidas, Planet Sports, Toby’s, RUNNR, Sole Academy, Sports Central, Olympic Village, Proline, Athlete’s Foot, Sports Town, Sports Central, MJ46, and SM malls and Department Stores nationwide.

Nike Makes Running a Dream with the Perfect Fit

Nike Makes Running a Dream with the Perfect Fit
Introducing Dynamic Fit for unparalleled comfort and performance for every athlete

nike-lunar-eclipse

Philippines, DATE – A different pair of feet, a different shoe mould, a different fit but the same dream experience. The LunarEclipse+ 2 is set to offer runners the perfect customized fit with the introduction of Dynamic Fit Technology.

Created in Nike’s Innovation Kitchen and Sports Research Lab, Dynamic Fit is designed to eliminate the space between the foot and the shoe for a customized fit that feels like the ‘second skin,’ no matter the foot size or shape. Dynamic Fit technology features soft material that wraps like fingers around the mid-foot and arch for a glove-like fit. The perfect fit can be achieved with a simple motion of tightening the laces, which are connected to the Dynamic Fit mid-foot cage for the perfect wrap.

Pushing innovation limits to help runners achieve their full potential, the LunarEclipse+2 also features ultra-soft Lunarlon cushioning for a smooth ride and the innovative Dynamic Support stability system that works in tandem with the Lunarlon cushioning to for an easy, gradual transition and a smooth ride.

Dynamic Support is a two-part midsole system working in tandem with the ultra-plush Lunarlon cushioning to provide stability and support. Opposing wedges of foam move the runner from soft to stable as the heel lands and the foot flexes down, providing for an easy, gradual transition and a smooth ride. The Fitsole 4 sockliner provides extra support and comfort by combining two densities of foam – one more resilient, one a little softer for increased smooth transition. The LunarEclipse+2 also features a TPU heel cup that works with the heel clip for superior fit and support.

Marrying art and innovation, Nike partnered renowned make up and body paint artist Joanne Gair to bring to life the concept of ‘second skin.’ A natural collaboration choice, Joanne Gair embodies the same passion and attention to detail in honing her craft, mirroring Nike’s own obsession over every aspect of craft and design.

To complete the runner’s attire, the Hurricane Vapor Jacket (Men’s) and the Cyclone Vapor Jacket (Women’s) are the perfect complements to every runner’s wardrobe as we exit the tail end of the monsoon season that plagues the region.

Both the Hurricane Vapor Jacket and the Cyclone Vapor Jacket are designed to protect runners from the rain and wind without the extra warmth of a heavy jacket. The light sheer fabric shell made of ripstop fabric is internally flocked (fibres adhered to the surface in a pattern) to maximize breathability by preventing the jacket from sticking to the skin.

Showcasing innovative attention to detail, the lower-back pocket on both jackets serve as both storage and on-the-go option when the runner wants to pack the jacket into itself.

The LunarEclipse+2 will be available in stores in Southeast Asia from January 13, 2012, in the following countries:
* Indonesia, IND 1, 6999, 000
* Malaysia, MYR 519
* Singapore, SGD 239
