Fit & Sizing
The men’s Adidas Cloudfoam Defy sneakers are offered in measurements ranging from 6.5 to 14. The sizing is accurate to measurement, and the fit provides adequate wiggle room for your toes.
There is no arch support in the shoes although they can accommodate inserts since the cushioned sockliners are removable. The fit is adjusted through the use of a five-pair eyelet lace closure system. Webbing heel pulls provide easy access to get these on or off the feet.
Adidas Cloudfoam Defy Style
Cloudfoam Defy sneakers come with a clean style, a bit of street edge, and a ton of easygoing vibe. With such a laidback look, Cloudfoam Defy sneakers invite you to sit back and chill.
The casual Friday style looks good with chinos and a banded-collar shirt. You can also wear these with short pants, a polo shirt, and maybe a beer in one hand. These shoes are offered in five neutral colorways, which are cargo, collegiate navy, core black, carbon, and grey.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that most users found these kicks to be amazingly comfy, because Cloudfoam Defy shoes belong to Adidas’ Cloudfoam collection. This range of footwear is focused on providing step-in comfort courtesy of the Cloudfoam technology, which can be found in all shoes of that range.
The Cloudfoam technology is a new type of EVA compound that gives superior underfoot cushioning. The goal of the Cloudfoam is to keep you moving wherever you need to go and whenever without foot pain holding you back.
Adding more comfort to the shoes are the Ortholite Float footbeds which keep feet cool and dry by wicking away moisture, providing lightweight cushioning, and allowing air to circulate inside.
Adidas Cloudfoam Defy History
In 2008, Adidas, in a brilliant move, decided to target young consumers by launching a line that would be the epitome of fun, fresh, and active all-in-one. It called the new line, NEO. Keeping in line with its hip, young market, the brand got Youtubers Amanda Steele and Marcus Butler to endorse the brand.
A sub-range under the NEO line is the Cloudfoam collection. Shoes in this range all feature the Cloudfoam technology, which is a lightweight cushioning system designed for people who are always on the move. Needless to say, this line became one of the most popular ranges for the Adidas brand, and from this line came the Cloudfoam Defy model.
Cloudfoam Defy shoes have structured mesh uppers, decorative heel stitchings, and a round toe shape.
- Each shoe weighs about 340 grams.
- The shoes retail for $70.
