  • The Adidas Edge Luxe 2.0 is an update to a well-received shoe designed for women. The changes are few, but they make the overall package more robust and potentially more agreeable to the casual running enthusiast.
  • The mesh material for this model now has a fabric-like quality and the design is much sportier. A mid-foot saddle made of mesh also graces this running shoe. The collar and tongue don’t have substantial padding, but what’s there keeps the top part of the foot well-cushioned.
  • BOUNCE™ is the technology that’s used in the mid-sole unit of the Adidas Edge Luxe 2.0. It’s a springy foam unit that ushers the foot towards a comfortable underfoot experience. It also absorbs impact during the landing phase of the gait cycle. Durable rubber with a diamond-shaped tread pattern shields the foam from wear and tear.

The Adidas Edge Luxe 2.0 has a standard running shoe length. It welcomes the regular preferences of runners in terms of sizing. The width is medium. Its semi-curved shape naturally accommodates the shape of the human foot. It’s primarily designed for women.

The outsole unit of the Adidas Edge Luxe 2.0 makes use of a full-length rubber unit that shields the mid-sole from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also delivers traction over the surfaces. A diamond-shaped pattern makes this layer stylish, yet their slightly raised design helps to improve traction.

Same as with the shoe's latest version, the Edge Luxe 3, the Edge Luxe 2.0 uses the BOUNCE™ which is a foam unit that aims to provide a springy and responsive ride. It runs the entire length of the Adidas Edge Luxe 2.0, so it makes sure to keep the foot well-cushioned at all times. It also has the capacity to absorb impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle.

A thin foam insole is placed right above the main mid-sole unit. It adds a bit more cushioning to the foot. It can be removed or replaced with another one.

A mesh material is utilized for the upper unit of the Adidas Edge Luxe 2.0. It covers the foot securely and keeps it well-ventilated. It has the look and feel of woven fabric.

Thin mesh layers are added to the medial and lateral sides of the shoe. Having an M-shaped design, these saddles connect directly to the lacing system to help in delivering a customizable coverage.

Traditional laces are employed to allow the runners to easily tighten or loosen the fit.

The mildly padded tongue and collar gives some cushioning to the top section of the wearer’s foot. They also prevent wobbling and accidental shoe removals.

A pull tab is placed on the tongue unit to assist in the putting on and taking off of the shoe.
