adidas Releases adizero Rush running shoe, plus videos featuring Brie Felnagle...

Our friends at adidas USA in Portland passed on some items of interest to folks in the running and track & field communities.

First is the debut of the adidas adizero Rush running shoe, which weighs in at 7.5 ounces.

“We’re really proud of the adizero Rush and excited to get the shoe in the hands and on the feet of athletes who run to get faster for their sport,” said Mikal Peveto, director of running for adidas America.  “The adizero Rush shaves ounces from a typical running shoe, helping athletes as they work to stay faster than their competition.”

Combining a super light shoe with maximum cushioning and support, the adizero Rush features adiPrene+ midsole technology for resilient cushioning in the forefoot to ensure a responsive ride.  The shoe’s SprintWeb provides lightweight support while the unique nylon mesh construction is breathable and keeps the foot locked in place for stability and speed.  The SprintFrame™ helps return energy to each stride and the shoe’s Lightstrike™ EVA reduces midsole weight by 15 percent.

The adizero Rush retails for $100.

adidas has also produced a series of videos featuring Tacoma's Brie Felnagle on its YouTube channel ( will run several of them throughout January.

The first one is about running the mile, and what it takes to race the distance…enjoy!

NOTE: Special thanks to Caitlin Albaugh & staff at adidas USA.
