The Fall/Winter 2016 collection is comprised of four distinct ranges, with each and every piece created with targeted technology and a discipline-specific design.
Studio HIIT
adidas by Stella McCartney Studio introduces its first dedicated High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) range, specifically built to support the most demanding studio workouts. Engineered with ClimaLite technology to draw sweat away from skin, the looks support those making the most of every workout. Graphic stripes, neon shades and leopard print trims dominate the aesthetic for a modern style that doesn’t compromise performance. Built for power and speed, the new Edge trainer facilitates extra agility and 360° multi-movements.

The Fall/Winter 2016 Run range, includes apparel and footwear designed for long-distance marathon training, as well as everyday runs. Engineered from featherweight material and highly functional moisture management fabrics, the ultra-lightweight Adizero apparel is built to enhance runners’ speed.

Climaheat technology keeps runners warm thanks to a hollow fibre construction that provides additional insulation, whilst reflective elements enhance visibility. Specifically designed for the female athlete, the PureBOOST X running shoe provides extra support and a sock-like fit, perfect for everyday running. The UltraBOOST shoe features a full-length BOOST midsole as thousands of energy infused BOOST™ foam capsules release energy with every stride.

The Fall/Winter 2016 Collection is our most technologically-advanced to date; it is the culmination of over ten years’ experience of fusing technology and style seamlessly together,” comments Nicole Vollebregt, Head of adidas Women’s division.
