Article Featured Image

Buying new running shoes can be overwhelming – whether you’re a beginner, a regular runner or an athlete. 

Running shoes aren’t just running shoes anymore, they’re carefully engineered products to make sure you’re getting the most from your jog. 

Which is why you need to know what you’re buying before you hit the streets of Dubai. 

The latest release by adidas, PureBOOST DPR are men’s shoes designed specifically for running the streets so we thought it’s worth exploring just what you need to know about running shoes and all their features.

The heel-to-toe offset 

This is the height difference between the sole at the toe and the heel. The PureBOOST DPR shoe has an 8mm offset – so the toe is 8mm lower than the heel. 

It’s kept to a minimum to maximise the natural movement of the foot, while still offering support.

The weight of the shoe

Lighter shoes typically are better for running, but you don’t want that to mean sacrifice on quality. Luckily adidas has the BOOST technology for soles, keeping them lightweight, with cushioning that stores and returns energy every time the foot hits the ground.

The upper 

The top of the shoe – is all about what you want from your run. The PureBOOST DPR running shoes feature a one-piece circular knit-upper, meaning it’s adaptive for you to duck and weave, without restricting your foot.

The forefront

Where the ball of your foot sits in the shoe is called the forefront, and you want the right shape and style to suit your needs. 

For running on streets, ducking and turning corners, the PureBOOST DPR has a wider forefront to make sure you enjoy stability while turning corners and swiveling as you need. 

The outsole 

The outsole is the base of the shoe, and when hittin’ the mean streets of Dubai, you want a quality grip so you don’t slip in the dust. 

The PureBOOST DPR has a stretch-web outsole which enables a smoother and more flexible ride.
