Dubbed the crazy monkey shoes, the Adidas SpringBlades made their debut on Aol.’s TechCrunch earlier in July. If you’ve read the review where John Biggs – the reviewer – pays homage to Adidas and applaud them for attempting something so bald, yet so daring in the same breath. While we have to wait a good old 5 months before they reach us (scheduled for SA launch in February) the press release is sure enough to persuade you into pre-ordering a pair, or two.
These shoes expel energy forward and work best while running on concrete and less well on soft surfaces like sand or trails.
Concern over the shoe has rises as to whether they’ll rise to the level of the Nike Free over the next few months after local launch as people try them out simply for the novelty of the design.
