Who should NOT buy it

If you're looking for a pair of shoes with arch support, the Adidas Fluidflow 2.0 is not it. Some of the better options for flat feet and overpronation from Adidas are the Ultraboost ST and the Solar Glide ST.

Fluidflow 2.0 offers comfort that lasts

Runners say that they can "run for miles" in the Adidas Fluidflow 2.0 because of its nice, soft cushion. What's more the shoe requires no breaking in. The wearers happily report that it fits well from the start.

One of the reviewers perfectly sums it up, the walking experience feels "effortless and fluid" in this Adidas shoe. The cushioning is not the plush and squishy type but it offers a more natural feel underfoot.

Cuts corners on weight

All are in agreement that the shoe does NOT feel heavy on the foot. Even though it is slightly heavier than running shoes on average (312 g over 276 g), it feels lighter than it is, according to the reviewers.

No more slips with the Adidas Fluidflow 2.0

The upper hugs the foot "extremely well." So much so that it prevents it from sliding around.

Great value for the price

For its asking price of $85, the Adidas Fluidflow 2.0 offers a solid level of comfort, quality, and style. Given that the average price of running shoes is $125, this is a truly budget-friendly option.

Just the right amount of flair

Stylish, good-looking, and cool is how reviewers describe the shoe. They say it's not too flashy nor too dull.

Adidas Fluidflow 2.0 is not for flat-footed runners
