Available December 2016 – MSRP $130.00

Year after year, the adidas Supernova Glide has become known as a reliable, neutral daily trainer within the adidas running line. Although we have seen 8 versions of the Supernova Glide, for version 9, adidas will drop the “Glide” name and the shoe will simply be referred to as the “Supernova”. Along with a name change, this shoe will also feature several nice updates that still retain the essence of the Glide series.

One of the biggest updates seen in the Supernova is the use of added boost material for an even more responsive and cushioned underfoot feel. A 20% boost increase, mostly seen in the heel, should offer enhanced cushioning during longer runs while still remaining a versatile option for uptempo efforts.

The shoe also receives a complete redesign of the outsole. Now with a Continental rubber configuration and a torsion system similar to the Ultra Boost, this trainer will provide enhanced durability and traction. An improved engineered mesh upper is used to create a softer foot wrap and a new fitcounter design offers increased heel support. Along with a redesigned Achilles fit system, this shoe should offer a fantastic heel wrap.
