our proving grounds.
Proving that the Forest Hills is adidas’ lightest and most advanced tennis shoe required a unique series of scientific experiments: championship tennis matches. Matches which helped verify that its 8.7 ounce※ weight made it easier to keep going … even after three gruelling hours.
Matches that aided in demonstrating the sophisticated adjustable sole ventilation system could keep inside temperatures 20% lower.
Matches that assisted in proving the specially developed Polaire sole to be five times more durable than ordinary soles.
The adidas Forest Hills. It took everything science knew about tennis and turned it to your advantage.
