“Runners all over the world practise their sport in cities. In this environment, they can let their creativity flow and push themselves with the most diverse routes and challenges. We wanted to launch a shoe specially for this kind of runner”, says Stephan Schneider, Product Manager at adidas Running.


With that purpose in mind, our partner adidas has launched the latest member of the PureBOOST family: the adidas PureBOOST DPR. This shoe was designed for all urban runners who have to deal with all kinds of situations, terrains and obstacles. Apart from boasting the famous adidas BOOST™ sole, this shoe comes with three other special properties:


1. Seamless upper The entire upper material of the adidas PureBOOST DPR is made from a single piece of fabric. This means that the midfoot benefits from a perfect fit and stability. Apart from that, the shoe has no bothersome seams, so there’s no need to worry about blisters.

2. Wide forefoot Having more space in the forefoot area gives you more support during terrain and direction changes, which are commonplace around the city.

3. Stretchweb outsole The PureBOOST DPR’s rubber outsole enables a dynamic rolling motion that adjusts to the terrain. It also maximises the BOOST™ effect. The Continental rubber provides excellent grip in all kinds of weather.


In conclusion, the adidas PureBOOST DPR is the ideal shoe for those who see the city as their playground and training area. The DPR will take you through the streets and crowds just as well as through your workouts in the park.
