To everyone's surprise, Adidas released the new black and red adipower weightlifting shoe on 3/13/2014. We were anticipating the release of the white model, but we didn't expect (or even know) that Adidas had another color-way in the works. With three different color combinations to chose from, Adidas will likely win over new customers.
Weren't a fan of the neon orange color of the Adipowers? Well it's your lucky day because it looks as though Adidas will be adding a white model AdiPower to their lineup. This will no doubt improve their market share since many lifters were unhappy with the limited color options before.
It's that time and retailers are clearing shelves and warehouses to make room for new models and inventory. Adidas is having an awesome End of Season Sale going on on right now that features over 1,700 items on sale for up to half off their normal price. The sale will run until all items are sold out so you will want to act fast to get items in your size!

Especially when some American shoe brands are utilizing factories in Armenia and other relatively close countries.
