The Adidas Adizero Takumi-Sen 6 has been updated to offer heightened efficacy on the roads. The overall design is still minimalist and meant for races, but the materials have been changed to embody speed. The upper unit features the lightweight and breathable Celermesh. At the same time, the midsole incorporates a forefoot Boost™ unit with a piece of highly responsive and durable Lightstrike that runs from the midfoot to the heel.

Size and fit

The standard sizing schemes were used when the Adidas Adizero Takumi-Sen 6 was made. Runners are encouraged to go for their usual size when it comes to this product. However, it would also help to set expectations if it is tested personally before purchase and/or reviews that cover the aspect of size are studied.

Elements like the form-hugging upper unit and the slender structure of the race-optimized platform work together to hold the foot in place and keep it from wobbling. The natural outline of the human foot has become the basis of the overall construction of this product.


Continental™ rubber is the material used for the outsole of the Adidas Adizero Takumi-Sen 6. This layer has the job of protecting the contact points of the platform from wear-and-tear. It has a naturally grippy nature to allow the shoe to adhere to the ground with ease. Continental™ is a car tire-grade compound used in many Adidas products like the updates to the Ultraboost line.

Quickstrike is a decoration of non-aggressive gripping lugs near the forefoot section. These elements help to heighten surface grip and movement confidence. These small nodes function like the cleats of other sports shoes.


Lightstrike is a full-length cushioning unit that is meant to carry the foot responsibly through the gait cycle. This piece is configured to be lightweight, flexible, and durable enough to last many miles.

The forefoot section of the Adidas Adizero Takumi-Sen 6 has a Boost™ piece as its sources of support and springiness. The bouncy nature of this technology makes sure to prepare the foot for an energized liftoff.


Celermesh is a lightweight textile that is used for the upper unit of the Adizero Takumi-Sen 6. Also, this feature is flexible and breathable, so natural movement and comfort can become highlights of the running session.

Printed overlays permit the upper to hold the foot securely without putting too much pressure on the skin. No extra bulk is also yielded by these synthetic add-ons.

The tongue unit is connected to the sides of the inner sleeve. This accoutrement is configured to wrap the top part of the foot without having the risk of the tongue unit deviating to the sides and causing irritation.
