Behind-the-Scenes: Testing Adidas New Springblade Sneakers

“It was so much fun playing guinea pig last week when I tested Adidas’s Springblade sneakers (available on starting August 1). The company sent me a pair in neon pink so I could try out the shoe’s new “blade technology,” which uses 16 blades on the soles to spring your movement forward. Together with’s photographer Alex Reside, we went to Rockefeller Center to pound the pavement for a Friday afternoon impromptu photo shoot. Alex made me run in circles around him for 30 minutes just to get the right shot. But it was worth it! By the end, we amassed a mini crowd (so I showed off my new kicks to a bunch of New York tourists) and he took some fun action shots. As for the shoes? They felt as cool as they looked.”
