Adidas has launched a new version of its Adizero road running shoe with a more affordable price tag for runners who want to smash their personal bests without breaking their budget.

The Adidas Adizero SL uses the same materials at the rest of the Adizero range, such as the premium Adizero Prime X and Adizero Adios Pro 3. This includes an area of strategically positioned Lightstrike Pro foam in the forefoot for a more responsive ride. The shoe also features a Lightstrike EVA midsole, which provides strength and protection.

The upper is made from an engineered mesh material for breathability, and the tongue is well padded so you can lace the shoe tightly without discomfort on your metatarsals. 

The shoe is available to buy in brick-and-mortar Adidas stores, online, and in the Adidas app today for $120/£110. It comes in two colorways: pulse mint for women, and lucid blue / lucid fuchsia for men.
