Updates to Adidas Madoru
- Adidas’ aim to provide entry level runners with shoes that can make seasoned ones envious is evident with the introduction of the Madoru. The running shoe delivers a plush kind of cushioning with just enough zip on it that will not zap the energy of the runners.
- The outsole is topped with premium AdiWear for a long-enduring run that can only make the comfortable runs even more enjoyable.
- The shoe breathability is excellent courtesy of a really breathable mesh that molds to the foot of the runner. This upper makes the shoe excellent for hot weather runs.
Adidas Madoru size and fit
Adidas offers a spacious room throughout the shoe. The fit is still considered average, but will have no trouble accommodating those with slightly wider or inflexible fit. Part of the plush comfort in the shoe stems from the generous room in all areas. Available widths are medium, wide, and extra wide. Sizing is standard with options 7 to 14 for the men’s and 4 to 12 for the women’s.
The outsole resembles the StretchWeb version of Adidas’ premium outsole like that of the Adidas Pure Boost, but with added flex grooves. It is elastic and has excellent flexibility. The full-contact outsole enhances the transition from heel to the forefoot. Covering the entire outsole is the AdiWear rubber, which is often found in many of Adidas’ shoes because of its maximum durability.
A full-length Adiprene+ midsole foam covers the area for consistent cushioning and better movement through the gait cycle. It is made of lightweight EVA that also has superb durability and responsiveness.
An AirMesh upper greets runners when the Madoru is taken right out of the box. The superior breathability of the mesh which is carried over to its recent version, the Madoru 2.0 makes it excellent for hot conditions to keep the foot cool and dry. Breathability continues with a leather-like cage that is perforated by small holes forming the Adidas logo. There are stitched overlays in the all areas for durable support and excellent security. Step-in comfort begins with the plush collar while the interior is lined with soft fabric.
