The adidas Springblade Drive represents the latest model to use the brand’s proprietary Energy Blades, powering a silhouette featuring a 360-degree engineered air mesh upper, as well as a suede tongue and collar for additional breathability and comfort. There’s also the one-piece heel and mid-fit cage, inspired by the Energy Boost 2, and of course the 16 individually tuned blades, for the first time finished in a vibrant color application. The kicks are introduced in a new promotional video starring the Buffalo Bills’ Sammy Watkins, shot using phantom slow motion, drone helicopter and infrared cameras that detect heat. Check it out below, and look for the kicks to launch in a range of introductory colorways starting June 25th.
