Summary

We spent 6.6 hours reading reviews from experts and users. In summary, this is what runners think:

6 reasons to buy

  • A lightweight running shoe that boosts every runner’s performance in speed work.
  • For higher durability, the Adidas AdiPure Adapt features a stretch-mesh and rubberized sole that are wear-resistant.
  • Placed strategically are the bottom rubbers that increase the traction of this shoe.
  • An easy to wear running shoe because of its stretchable fabric on the upper area of the shoe.
  • A very affordable running shoe.
  • Minimalist runners are the ones who will benefit the most from this shoe because of its low heel-to-toe drop.

3 reasons not to buy

  • A lot of runners took note of the cheap design that the Adapt possesses. Definitely not for stylish runners.
  • Compared to the rest of the AdiPure collection, the AdiPure Adapt has an uncomfortable feel according to some runners because of its narrow fit.
  • Flexing the toes is not possible with the Adidas AdiPure Adapt due to its snug fit; it acts like a second skin to the foot.

Bottom line

In order to experience barefoot or minimalist running, the Adidas AdiPure Adapt was created at a very affordable price. Since the shoe’s last is semi-curve in shape, it is ideal for neutral pronators. Boosting your speed is not a problem once you let the AdiPure Adapt take action.

    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.

  • 60 / 100 by The Running Shoe Review • The Running Shoe Review • Level 3 expert

    Adiwear rubber on the outsole also means you get a great deal of grip and durability from this lightweight forefoot shoe.

  • 85 / 100 by My Running Addiction • My Running Addiction • Level 2 expert

    Wear it everyday and gradually adapt to a more natural and effecient running form with the Adidas Adipure Adapt.

  • 60 / 100 by Running Warehouse • Matt • Level 2 expert

    The shoe slides around very little on the foot during runs, but I still wasn't entirely anchored in place. I went sockless and came back with several blisters on the bottoms of my toes. With a thin sock, problem solved.

  • 98 / 100 by Successlessness • Tom • Level 1 expert

    Zero drop, light weight and minimal, they're pretty much perfect.

  • 92 / 100 by Takbo.ph • Takbo.ph • Level 1 expert

    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.

    I tried to run along 3 KM using these shoes, it feels awesome!

  • 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.


Outsole

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.


Midsole

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.


Upper

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.
