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.

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.
