7 reasons to buy

  • The Adidas Fresh 2.0 is as ultra-breathable as the original model.
  • The cool design in 4 different color schemes will not fail to catch the attention of people.
  • The CC Fresh 2.0 is very light.
  • It is extra flexible.
  • The cushioning is adequate for longer runs, according to a few testers.
  • It is very affordable.
  • Some runners valued the Fresh 2.0’s superb durability.

2 reasons not to buy

  • The lack of arch support and the high heel offset may not be suitable for a good number of runners.
  • Wet conditions will certainly damper the runner’s mood as the foot can be soaked in no time.

Bottom line

The Adidas Climacool Fresh 2.0 just like the popular Adidas running shoe, the Ultra Boost will allow runners to fly like the wind in an extremely breathable run. It is not built for entry level runners or those who love more structure and arch support in their running shoes. Runners who want to get a little taste of what a minimalist shoe feels like can do so in the CC Fresh 2.0.

    We bonded, and when I say bonded they fit like an absolute dream. Almost like they were a part of your foot. At a mere 184g (I think a slimslab weighs more than that) you hardly notice them there.

  • The Adidas Climacool Fresh 2.0 brings to the runner a comfortable and cool performance. This is a lightweight training shoe that makes sure that the foot stays dry and free from irritation while wearing it. The simple, yet elegant design is appealing while not being too flashy. It’s an everyday shoe that can function well, even when used casually.
  • The upper unit uses technologies and components that ensure the security and comfort of the wearer’s foot. Smooth and soft fabrics make sure to keep the foot free from irritation or warm spots. Air constantly circulates, keeping a well-ventilated interior in which to rest the foot.
  • The mid-sole uses EVA and a proprietary foam to create the plush, yet responsive underfoot platform. Superior cushioning is received when landing the foot on the ground, making sure that the foot stays comfortable and safe from impact. It doesn’t have a stiff nature, so it moves with the natural flexibility of the foot.
  • The outsole unit uses a mix of durable EVA and rubber to create a layer that’s both protective and plush. It is able to protect the sole unit from wear and abrasion, while also providing a bit more bounce in each step. Some openings are found in the sole unit and they provide additional breathability to the inner section of the shoe.

The Adidas Climacool Fresh 2.0 has a regular shoe length. It comes in sizes that follow the standard measurements for men and women. It has a medium width when it comes to its heel, mid-foot and forefoot sections, so it accommodates those with medium-sized feet.


A highly durable yet lightweight EVA is placed in the section of the sole unit that’s exposed to the ground. It offers additional cushioning when stepping the foot on the ground. It doesn’t wear off easily, so it stays efficient even after many uses.

A rubber material is placed on the immediate outsole unit to provide protection when it comes to wear and surface abrasion. It’s strong and is able to provide adequate surface grip, so traction is very much provided by this layer.


The ADIPRENE® is a lightweight foam technology that runs the entire length of the Adidas Climacool Fresh 2.0. It absorbs impact shock quickly and it ensures that the foot is clear from any immediate discomfort because of its plush and responsive nature.


A mesh material is used as the main component for the upper unit of this running shoe. It has an open construction, so it keeps the foot cool and dry at all times as air constantly enters and circulates inside the interior environment.

The climacool® is a ventilation system that’s placed in this shoe to ensure that the entire foot gets all-around breathable support that doesn’t falter. It regulates the interior temperature to keep the foot and the shoe dry.

The Adidas stripes are fused onto the upper unit. They provide structure to the material while also making sure that the fit is as customizable as the runner wants.
