Who should not buy the Adidas Kaptir Super

The squeaky sound might be annoying and then it makes more sense to have a look at the Adidas Nite Jogger. Also, folks who wish to have a lightweight shoe may want to check out the Adidas Swift Run.

The cushy heel section of the Adidas Kaptir Super

In this iteration, Adidas drops the Cloudfoam sole integrated into the other shoes to give way to the super responsive and squishy Boost. Its heel section is even described by a wearer as cushy.

Excellent quality-price ratio

Retailed at $90 a pair, this shoe compared to other Boost-integrated sneakers like the Stella McCartney Ultraboost ($220) is exceptionally cheap. But despite its affordable price tag, the Kaptir Super's durability was not compromised. This kick holds its shape well. Its middle layer stays cushioned for a long time, says an owner.

Weighty than others

The Kaptir Super is one of the chunky Adidas kicks that feels weighty.

Snug yet cozy

Its padded collar is “slightly tight but not constricting.” On the contrary, it provides a homey feel after giving it a good break-in time.

Flapping noise

This shoe produces a flapping sound on the forefoot that can be annoying.

Adidas Kaptir Super and its Boost cousins

  • Adidas ZX 2K Boost isn’t shy in colors as some of its variations appear with a two-toned sole. Like the Kaptir Super, the heel section of its Boost sole is wrapped in a supportive TPU casing. Though it weighs lighter than the Kaptir shoe, this ZX option weighs heavier on the budget.
  • Adidas ZX 1K Boost is designed with a more classic-looking cover retro-ed with modern touches. Instead of the heel-to-toe Boost cushioning seen in the Adidas Kaptir Super, this kick is designed with standard foam in front and the pillowy Boost on the heel. But it’s a bit pricier than the Kaptir shoe.
