adidas Introduces Springblade Drive with Sammy Watkins

adidas launches Springblade Drive in an aggressive spot with Buffalo's Sammy Watkins. Shot using phantom slow motion, drone helicopter and infrared cameras that detect heat, the eruptive wide receiver explodes off the turf and speeds through stadium stairs.

The simplified silhouette features a 360-degree engineered air mesh upper and a suede tongue and collar for additional breathability, comfort and premium details. Inspired by the Energy Boost 2, the one-piece heel to mid-fit cage provides extra stability. The shoe's 16 individually tuned blades instantaneously react to any environment, compressing and releasing energy. For the first time, the blades come to life through vibrant color application.

Springblade Drive is available Wednesday for $180 at adidas.com, adidas Sport Performance stores and select retailers nationwide.

Colorways include five for men (Solar Red/Black/Solar Red, Black/Onix/Silver Metallic, Blue Beauty/Black/Solar Gold, White/Black/White, and Black/Solar Red/Black) and four for women (Black/Solar Pink/Black, Solar Pink/Solar Blue, Power Teal/Frost Mint/Solar Gold, and White/Grey/Black) .
