For the first time in the United States, adidas has unveiled the Element Refine. The environmentally friendly and lightweight running shoe is made with a recycled tricot woven fabric and mesh to keep you quick in your feet and your carbon footprint to a minimum.
These kicks were made for comfort and flexibility, with a minimal use of materials but with some bells and whistles like the sockliner and “strobal board” which lowers the foot and brings it closer to the ground for increases stability. The shoe is available initially in four colorways for men (Solar Slime, Black, Navy/Black, Red/Black/Red) and in three colorways for women (Neon Pink, Solar Slime and Black).
The Element Refine will be available for purchase at adidas.com in April and is available now for a budget friendly $70 at retailers that include Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Champs and Footaction.
