Adidas Element Refine

Adidas has launched the Element Refine running shoe in the U.S. for the first time.

The sneaker is lightweight and environmentally-friendly shoe designed with a recycled tricot woven fabric and a unique circular mesh.

It was engineered for a comfortable and flexible fit. The material splits minimize the amount required, while strategic placement of the seams and 3-stripe overlay provide the support. The upper is cut flat and lock-stitched together, wrapping around the foot for pattern efficiency and durability. And, stripping back elements, such as the sockliner and strobal board, lowers the foot to the ground and increases stability.

The Adidas Element Refine is available now at select retailers nationwide for $70, before releasing on Adidas.com in April.
