The Brooklyn Ballet brings the rhythm of New York City to their stage with each tradition-bending performance. These running shoes honor the Brooklyn Ballet's fresh interpretation of "The Nutcracker" with a look inspired by the ballerinas' graffiti-splattered tutus. The shoes were assembled at adidas' innovative SPEEDFACTORY facility in Atlanta and are releasing in NYC. Built with insight from NYC runners, they're crafted specifically for the challenges of the city's urban streets. Responsive Boost cushioning and state-of-the-art glueless, fused bonding give you the most direct Boost comfort and energy return ever. They enable a steady and adaptive stride via the SPEEDFACTORY Torsion bar that floats in the outsole for optimal flexibility. The knit upper features tension patches for a digitally-crafted fit, and a connected eyestay gives you all-around stability. Each shoe has an embedded NFC chip in the tongue offering authentication and a unique digital experience.
