adidas launches Solarglide 5


Today, adidas Running reveals the adidas Solarglide 5. When you’re building consistency, upping your distance or training for a PB, Solarglide is the running shoe to get you there.

Built with every day running in mind, the adidas Solarglide 5 is the latest addition to the brand’s popular Solarglide franchise. Designed to provide runners with the perfect fit, the shoe features a Bubble Boost midsole consisting of hundreds of Boost capsules which are fused together and ready to explode with energy in each step. Working in tandem with an updated LEP, which fits between the Bubble Boost platform and the Control Platform, the shoe provides a smooth ride for runners.

The new adidas Solarglide 5 features:

  • Bubble Boost midsole The Bubble Boost midsole consists of hundreds of Boost capsules which are fused together and ready to explode with energy in each step
  • Control Platform – A full-top loaded EVA platform, designed for a smooth transition for runners 
  • LEP – An evolution of adidas’ legendary torsion system, the updated LEP 2.0 fits between the Bubble Boost platform and the Control Platform and provides a smooth ride for runners 


The shoe is a testament to adidas’ view that innovation can and should be used as a solution to help end plastic waste. Designed with the planet in mind, the adidas Solarglide 5’s Primeblue knit upper is made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic. The product consists of yarn which contains at least 50% Parley Ocean Plastic – re-imagined plastic waste, intercepted on remote islands, beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing it from polluting our ocean. The other 50% of the yarn is recycled polyester. 


The Solarglide 5 is testament to adidas’ ongoing drive to create a diverse range of products for both men and women, ensuring each athlete can select the most suitable shoe based on their individual needs. During the development phase, the team behind the shoe conducted a variety of tests to ensure the silhouette of the women’s Solarglide provided the best possible fit for female runners.

The adidas Solarglide 5 launches in a Light Flash Orange x Flash Orange colourway for women, and in Flash Orange x Turbo Red for men. Solarglide 5 will be available in adidas concept stores and on www.adidas.co.za from Thursday 24 February at the suggested retail price of R2499.
