The Adidas Adizero Takumi Sen 3 has arrived and the newest updates to the shoe further its reputation as the ultimate in fast paced performance road racing footwear. Crafted for elite racing and fast workouts by master Japanese cobblers Omori and Mimura, these running shoes weigh in at a mere 170 g. This is the first iteration of the Takumi Sen series to benefit from a forefoot pad of Adidas’ revolutionary energy-returning boost™ foam. This is complimented by a grippy Continental™ Rubber outsole and Coolever mesh upper with eco-friendly Tirrenina suede overlays.
The most striking update in the Takumi Sen Boost 3 is the inclusion of Adidas’ revolutionary Boost foam which is only incorporated in the forefoot of the shoe. This is to offer the impact protection where it is needed most, as these shoes will suit faster runners giving greatest energy return in forefoot striking and transition through the drive phase into toe-off. Constructed from compressed TPU capsules it provides ~10% greater energy return than standard EVA. The team at Adidas have tested boostTM foam in a number of different temperatures and weather conditions and found that it performs more consistently and retains its form and properties, even following countless miles. The EVA cushioning throughout the midfoot and heel of the midfoot give a lighter weight feel and dynamic feel to the shoe, providing brilliant road feel with less energy absorbed than thicker and softer midsoles.
The use of ContinentalTM rubber in high abrasion areas on the outsole provides great traction and durability. Its combination with Adidas’ QuickstrikeTM rubber micro-diamond in the outsole allows the Takumi Sen to have optimal traction whilst maintaining its ultra-light feel. The cleverly-designed, wishbone-shaped Torsion Control System in the midsole allows the rear and forefoot to move independently for race-ready support and improved efficacy through the gait cycle. The stable platform adds rigidity to the midsole providing an enhanced response and allowing greater power transfer during the drive phase of your stride.
The shoes upper is constructed from a clover-shaped Coolever mesh upper with environmentally responsible, solvent-free synthetic Tirrenina suede overlays offering midfoot support and lockdown. This combination results in a well ventilated shoe efficiently wicking moisture and head from the foot whilst the overlays give the shoe structure and support in key areas.
