Filling the role of the lightweight, performance trainer in adidas’ new Aerobounce line, the adidas Aerobounce PR has a low-to-the-ground design, as well as responsive cushioning that is designed to facilitate uptempo running. A sleek, mesh upper should provide a snug fit without constraining your feet.
The full-length Bounce midsole should deliver a springy ride to keep the pace fast. With 10 mm of material under the forefoot, this shoe has enough cushioning for longer efforts but is more minimal than most other performance trainers. As such, it can easily be used for longer road races as well. On the outsole, designers use Continental Rubber for excellent traction and durability. As a function of the midsole and outsole design, the shoe will also have extensive underfoot flexibility for a fluid heel-to-toe transition.
An engineered mesh upper with minimal overlays should deliver a sock-like fit that can comfortably adapt to your foot, and light padding around the heel counter helps soften the hold without using excessive material.
At $90, the Aerobounce PR looks to be a great value for runners seeking a speedy, lightweight training option.
