The Adidas P.O.D. System is inspired by technical runners from the mid-'90s. Using a cushioning system called the Point Of Deflection System, the design is used to provide the runner with better shock absorption and stability in the outsole. Mixing this in with current Adidas tech is Boost cushioning, EVA forefoot, and the P.O.D. bridge, which is inspired by Adidas' Torsion system.
