Updates to Climacool Freshride

Hot weather is no match against the Adidas Climacool Freshride. This flexible and well-ventilated running shoe features a comfortable design and high quality technologies for a better and smoother running performance. Airflow is important for this shoe because it allows air to constantly keep the foot cool and dry.

The upper unit of this running shoe affords the runner 360-degrees of breathable support to keep the foot comfortable and well-ventilated. The mesh material allows air to enter the shoe and it even has a moisture-managing capability that keeps the interior free from sweat and odor. It’s a high quality upper unit that’s reliable and secure.

The mid-sole unit uses proprietary Adidas technologies which make sure that the underfoot experience is constantly comfortable. The heel section gets impact protection and responsible cushioning, while the forefoot area is afforded some propulsion for a more effective & enabled toe-off. Essentially, the mid-sole keeps the foot well-supported at all times.

Durable protection against surface abrasion is afforded by the outsole unit of the Adidas Climacool Freshride. It features a strong rubber compound that’s also flexible and responsive. It effectively shields the sole unit from wear and damage. Flex grooves make sure to give way for the natural movement of the wearer’s foot.

Climacool Freshride size and fit

The Adidas Climacool Freshride has a standard running shoe length. The men and women’s versions come in sizes that adhere to the regular measurements. The available width is medium, so this shoe accommodates those with medium-sized feet. Its semi-curved shape welcomes the natural curvature of the foot.


ADIWEAR® is a high quality rubber compound that’s used in many Adidas shoes. It delivers reliable protection against wear and tear, ensuring that the platform stays safe from any damage when running. It’s also capable of giving reliable traction over the roads.

Flex grooves are placed in the forefoot section. These grooves allow the forefoot to bend more naturally and have a better freedom of motion. They don’t affect the structural integrity of the mid-sole and outsole, rather they work with them to give more flexibility to the wearer.


The ADIPRENE® foam unit is placed in the heel section of the Adidas Climacool Freshride. Aside from giving reliable cushioning for the runner, it also delivers dependable protection against impact, making each landing as comfortable as possible.

The ADIPRENE®+ is a more responsive foam that’s placed in the forefoot section of this shoe. It effectively gives the runner more propulsion, especially during the toe-off phase. Lifting the foot for the next step becomes more explosive.


The climacool® technology offers 360 degrees of breathability for the foot. It allows air to seamlessly enter the shoe in order to provide a cool interior environment for the runner.

The Coolever Mesh and Lining keeps the foot comfortable and dry. This clover-shaped threading manages sweat, essentially making the runner feel more comfortable and free from odor-causing moisture.

The collar, heel and tongue are cushioned. They lock the foot in place and make sure that accidental shoe removal is prevented. The inner sleeve isn’t irritating to the skin, as well.

A perforated sock liner adds more cushioning and breathable support, thus placing the underside of the foot on a ventilated platform.
