Fit & Sizing
Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage shoes are available in both men’s and women's sizes. The men’s shoes are offered in sizes 4 to 14 while the ones for women are available in measurements ranging from 5 to 11. The shoes reportedly run small and narrow so a size adjustment of at least a half size up should be considered.
Some colorways are shared between the men’s and women’s versions while some are exclusively for each. This should pose no problem for the buyer who would like a colorway available only for the opposite gender. There is a size difference of 1.5 between the men and women (men's shoes are wider and longer). To convert from the men’s sizing to the women’s, simply add 1.5 sizes to your usual foot measurement. Women who’d like the men’s shoes need only to subtract 1.5 from their regular shoe size.
Cloudfoam Advantage sneakers contain Cloudfoam wedged midsoles that provide users with excellent cushioning for all-day comfort so you can party or travel as much as you want without worrying about your feet. Sockliners made of Cloudfoam Memory foam adapts to the feet to give superior comfort.
As a bonus, the shoes are also quite eye-catching with their classically simple and retro design. The interesting colorways composed of either matte or iridescent Three Stripes.
Adidas Cloudfoam Advantage History
The Cloudfoam technology first appeared in 2016 with the launch of the Adidas NEO Cloudfoam. Adidas enlisted the help of Youtube stars Marcus Butler and Amanda Steele in their campaign that used the tagline, ”Step In” to encourage people in whatever activity they were passionate about. The shoes were released under Adidas’ NEO collection (debuted in the year 2012) which, in turn, was geared towards younger consumers aged 14-19.
The NEO Cloudfoam sneakers were lightweight and were surprisingly very comfortable since the Cloudfoam was designed to keep people going all day.
The Cloudfoam comes from a newly-developed EVA compound which is placed in the midsoles in the form of a heel pad for outstanding underfoot cushioning. The tech is supposed to add internal support for the heels and arches of the user, providing all the support you need for the areas that need it without having to resort to custom inserts.
Due to the good reception and popularity of the said cushioning tech, the brand promptly applied it to many others of their training, basketball, and running-inspired shoes.
