Adidas Adizero Adios Pro 2.0 vs 1 

Made for your race day, the Adidas Adizero Adios Pro 2.0 can handle middle to long-distance efforts. Cementing a good name in the running world in its first iteration, Adidas amps up an already good racing flat with the following changes: 

  • The new and improved Celermesh 2.0 upper is lighter, more breathable, comfortable, and flexible. It's almost completely see-through with loads of ventilation holes.
  • A semi-gusseted tongue with some padding prevents lace bites while contributing to the form-fitting lockdown of the upper. 
  • Intended for weight saving, the midsole features a cut-out on the side, exposing the energy rods (mimics the metatarsal bones, allowing stiffness where your body needs it). 
  • Moving from an 8.5mm drop, the shoe now has a 10mm drop. Despite having more heel stack, the shoe, according to experts, oddly feels lower to the ground. 

With updated features comes an updated price. Given all these changes, the Adizero Adios Pro 2.0 from Adidas is more expensive by $20.
