adidas adiZero Pro

adidasadiZeroPro e1715105966871

Tailored for the typical adidas fit with its curved last, the adiZero Pro is minimalist in each feature. The lightweight upper fits well, with soft, synthetic suede surrounding the ankle and soft meshes lining the tongue and interior forefoot. A responsive midsole features adiPrene only in the forefoot, to accommodate midfoot and forefoot strikers. The adiZero Pro has a minimal outersole of DSP, a polyester-and-urethane compound that offers good traction yet weighs less than rubber, and with a touch of adiWear rubber in the heel for durability. The result is a go-fast shoe, though how far you can go depends on your efficiency.
