Stephan Schneider, senior product manager, adidas Running, said, “Running in a city is unlike running anywhere else. Traffic, lights, and crowds make for a unique experience – challenges that come with high reward. adidas wanted to create something that was born from urban runners. Their infrastructure. Their inspirations. Their energy.”
“To create Pulseboost HD, adidas started by breaking down the elements of running in a city, namely the positions of the foot. For example, runners are more on their forefoot than midfoot. The company then used computational design and, most importantly, insight from key urban runners to create Pulseboost HD. This isn’t a product made by adidas, it is a shoe created by urban running culture.”
