Li-Ning have made a significant stake in the marathon shoe game with their new FEIDIAN 3 ULTRA, which found itself on the podium of the Berlin Marathon in late September. This marks the very first time a Chinese athletic brand has featured in the top three results of a professional marathon at the highest elite level.
The FEIDIAN 3 ULTRA was worn to a third-place finish by Ethiopia’s Tadu Abate, who posted a time of 2:06:28. Compatriot Limenih Getachew was not far behind, with a 2:07:07 run wearing the same shoes.,
This yet-to-be-released model uses Li-Ning’s BOOM midsoles, a ‘full-pam somerized carbon plate’ and ‘bionic plantar technology’ to propel runners and maximise energy return, a goal most modern running shoes strive to achieve.
The new shoe, which debuted at the Paris Marathon earlier this year, was tweaked for the Berlin Marathon and is still in the testing phase ahead of a planned retail release in early 2023. Stay locked to SF for updates as they arrive.
