adidas x Porsche Design Bounce S4 Lux Running Shoe
Two of Germany’s best-known brands, adidas and Porsche, have joined forces for a collaboration of engineering and fashion. The result is the unique and minimalist adidas x Porsche Design Bounce S4 Lux running shoe.
Automotive giants Porsche and their Design have come together with adidas’ Three Stripes for one of the more divisive collaborations of the year so far with the Bounce S4 Lux, a minimalist trainer with an instantly recognisable decoupled heel made for the smoothest run possible.
Inspired by the automotive industry, the lightweight S4 Lux running shoe is designed around a high-tech carbon heel plate from the auto industry which offers unrivalled stability. The addition of adidas’ Bounce suspension system technology means that the shoe returns energy for a smooth, stable run, with cushioning and elasticity.
Instantly noticeable is the shoe’s decoupled heel, which is attached to the rest of the shoe via a carbon plate inspired by Porsche’s cars. The Bounce suspension system offers added comfort, and the 3D upper lends both support and fit without unnecessary pressure. Available in dark blue or red. Black.
The running shoe comes with a seamless 3D upper construction for unique and premium look, and features a rubber outsole and seamless lining for increased comfort and less skin irritation. The shoe is finished off with the signature 3-Stripes integrated into upper design and Porsche Design branding at the eyestay.
The adidas x Porsche Design Bounce S4 Lux running shoe is available now from the adidas Website for £295.95, so it’s not cheap – hardly surprising given the names and technology involved.
