I believe in being brutally honest when I write reviews, and this review is a good example. I’ve had the adidas Adapts since early this year, but will openly admit that I have not run in them very much. My reason is a rather silly one, but it’s one that I think is going to cause a lot of problems for this shoe: it’s really ugly.
For running, the adipure Adapt works well but even though I sized up a half size, the Adapt felt a little too snug on my feet.
Adiwear rubber on the outsole also means you get a great deal of grip and durability from this lightweight forefoot shoe.
This shoe is not only light in weight but is also made to link the body’s natural mechanics, this technologically-advanced design offers minimal cushioning and molds to your feet.
Updates to Adidas AdiPure Adapt
- The Adidas AdiPure Adapt features the full-length adiPRENE+ cushioning that efficiently absorbs shock during landing and provides runners bouncy feel while running.
- The outsole unit of the shoe features the adiWear outsole technology that delivers a great combination of durability and reliable traction mile after mile.
- The brand’s TECHFIT Upper technology follows the natural shape of the foot, giving a sock-lie fit and natural feeling. It is designed to deliver outstanding fit and comfort while running.
Adidas AdiPure Adapt size and fit
When it comes to sizing, the shoe is true to its size. With the techfit-based upper, the shoe delivers an impressive fit to a wide range of foot measurements. Adidas is offering this shoe in medium D and B widths for men’s and women’s version.
The outsole of the shoe features the adiWear technology. It is made from non-marking carbon rubber. This material gives durable traction while running on the road. Strategically placed in high-abrasion areas, this enhances the longevity of the shoe.
With the AdiPure Adapt, runners can experience a springy feel in each step with the adiPRENE+ cushioning system that is designed to efficiently absorb shock on landing and release energy for a powerful toe-off. The lightweight TPU in the midsole gives added protection.
The shoe is made from Polyurethane overlays that are designed to be skin tight in order to perfectly mold to the shape of one’s feet. Thanks to the TECHFIT Upper technology, the shoe acts like a second skin, which the runner ultimately forgets when he hits the road. Another notable technology is the Hook and Loop attachments that are adjustable to provide can be a customized fit.
