Join the Running Revolution

PRESS RELEASE – Unmatched energy return, superior cushioning, optimal fit and temperature independence: introducing the ENERGY BOOST™ by adidas, the new running shoe with revolutionary cushioning technology that provides the highest energy return in the industry. And just like that, running will never be the same

With only 200 pairs of ENERGY BOOST™ available in the Philippines this season, runners will be able to reserve up to 100 pairs before the shoes hit the adidas Bonifacio Global City store on the 27th of February. This can be done via a pre-order mechanism exclusive for South East Asia that opens from 15th until 24th of February. So, be the first to boost your run at

The foundation of the ENERGY BOOST™ innovation is centred on proprietary cushioning material, BOOST™, that allows the runner to feel a continuous energy return. The revolutionary technology allows small energy capsules in the soles to store and unleash energy more efficiently with every stride

Holding its performance in almost any condition the exclusive BOOST™ material has been proven to be three times more temperature-resistant than standard EVA material, thus providing a more consistent and comfortable run

“As a revolutionary material, BOOST™ combines the usually conflicting performance benefits of soft and comfortable with firm and responsive cushioning. It almost makes the shoe come to life, and you will feel it from the first moment you put it on. It sets a new standard, not only for running shoes, but for the entire industry, and all products going forward,” said Bernd Wahler, Head of Innovation for adidas

The adidas ENERGY BOOST™ innovation goes beyond the revolutionary midsole technology. The upper on the ENERGY BOOST™ features adidas Techfit technology, which provides optimal comfort and support to the entire foot while in motion

Additional features include a special mid-foot support frame, an extended TORSION® system to minimise roll for more stability, adiwear outsole to reduce wear in key soles areas and an external heel counter to maximise the heel fit and comfort. The adidas ENERGY BOOST™ is miCoach compatible

adidas ENERGY BOOST™ retails at PHP7995 and will be available for pre-order at from 15th until 24th of February. Pre-ordered pairs will then be ready for pick up on the 27th of February at adidas Bonifacio Global City

Only time will tell. For now, check out the teaser video below

Two for the Price of One

Still thinking of what to get your significant other this Valentines? There's tons of things you can get. How about a leather envelope clutch? Next question is the color.  Box of macaroons perhaps? Then you have to think about where to get the best. Well how about a bottle of perfume? Do you get a Balenciaga or something else? A pair of sunglasses would be great as well. With this one you gotta be familiar with the shape of the face to get the style that suits best. You can also go with a pair of shoes. Still remember his/her favorite brand? How about his/her shoe size? A lot of things to consider

Lemme make it easier for you. How about giving him/her the gift of a healthy heart. Doing an activity together still trumps any gift you can give to a loved one. Or a friend. Or a crush. Starting today until Tuesday (Feb 12), Sofitel is giving everyone an opportunity to obtain 2 race kits (Battle of the Sexes) for the price of one. This gives you a savings of PHP800 which you can use to buy breakfast after the fun run. This translates to more ho-hol time (hang-out hang-out lang). And because of the unique design of the race, the male participant/runner will be able to "chase" his partner *kilig much*

How does one claim this promo/discount? Simple! Send an email to (Subject: Battle of the Sexes) with both names on it (you and your loved one). No need to include your contact info and address. I will choose 10 (ten) couples thru the use of an online randomizer. No dagdag-bawas here. How about the raffle prizes? A member of the couple is still eligible! How cool is that?! You also stand a chance to win a 3-night stay at the Imperial Suite, one of the 10 GC's of lunch/dinner buffet for two in Spiral, or one of the 5 GC's at Le Spa

All Revved Up For Race Day


It is all systems go for the premier marathon event in the country, the Condura Skyway Marathon, Run for the Mangroves 2013. The starting line in Filinvest City Alabang heats up with 14,000 runners on Sunday, February 3, 2013. This year the race will have the usual 10k, 21k and full 42k marathon categories plus the new 3.8k, 6k which are especially meant for the fun and adventurous runners who are not yet ready to take on the mid to long distance-races

The 2013 installment of this prestigious run records the biggest growth of 42k and 21k runners compared to the previous years. Both the number of full and half marathoners increased by almost 50%! “We are very pleased with this growth. And what motivates us more is the trust of many who will do their inaugural full or half mary with us. That is why the team has been working tirelessly planning, reviewing and arguing to make sure that they are safe and well taken care of,” mused Ton Concepcion (Condura Skyway Marathon’s Founder and Chief Organizing Officer)

Apart from the challenge and fun that this race has in-store for runners, participating in this race will also mean taking part in the Condura Skyway Marathon advocacy of helping with the reforestation of the Mangroves in Zamboanga de Sibugay in partnership with Philippine Tropical Forest Conservation Foundation (PTFCF)

Each runner through their registration, will get to donate three mangrove seedlings which will be planted in his/her name. In 2012, the first year that Condura Skyway Marathon adopted the mangroves reforestation project to its cause, a total of 39,000 seedlings have already been planted in Kabasalan Town through runners’ donation. With 14,000 participants this year, this translates to another 42,000 trees that will make a huge difference in the livelihood of more communities in Zamboanga

Condura Skyway Marathon is truly a run with a big heart! Runners will now have the opportunity to raise pledges for the charities it is supporting. For 2013, the premier running event is proud to support Bikes for Philippines, Hero Foundation, I Can Serve and Liter of Light. Runners can raise pledges of P50 pesos per kilometer and a time bonus of P500 pesos if they hit their time goal
