Notable Features

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.
