Since the idea behind the configuration of the Adidas Novafvse X is to maximize both comfort and durability, it is loaded with some of Adidas' renowned technologies. These are the Cloudfoam cushioning system and Adiwear outsole. 

The Cloudfoam technology is intended to provide plush underfoot cushioning. Because of its resilience, the foam is great at absorbing impact and amplifying the energy return for unmatched acceleration. 

Meanwhile, the Adiwear outsole presents high-strength attributes, shielding the platform from wear and tear. It also enhances traction for a stabilized running performance.

The Adidas Novafvse X sizing is only available in women's version. It also follows the standard sizing scale, thus women can purchase the running shoe following their usual size preference. To achieve proper fit and size, trying on the fit of the shoe first is recommended. Going through several user reviews before ordering is also encouraged to secure precise fit and size. 

For the fit of the Novafvse X, some of the components affecting this are the mesh upper and lace closure system of the platform. The mesh fabric supplies a foot-conforming wrap around the foot for pronounced lockdown regardless of foot motions. To complement the mesh upper, an internal seamless fit cage is integrated. It prevents slippage by holding the foot in place. On the other hand, the fastening system of the shoe promotes an adjustable fit.

Similar to the Adidas Duramo 9, the Novafvse X's outsole is composed of the brand's proprietary innovation—Adiwear outsole. It is made up of a non-marking rubber that flaunts excellent abrasion resistance. This prolongs the operational function of the shoe while enhancing the forward motion and surefootedness of the racer.

Because the construction of the Adidas Novafvse X is about highlighting a plush underfoot sensation, the Cloudfoam embodies the midsole of the running platform. It exhibits a dual-density composition for an optimal bounce. This aids in targeting maximum energy return, which also enhances the efficiency of the athlete's stride.

Acting as the outer wrap of the Adidas Novafvse X is the mesh upper. This textile has a number of perforations that act as the ventilation system of the foot chamber. This helps encourage moisture- and odor-free foot compartment. Aside from its moisture-wicking abilities, the upper is essential in achieving a snug lockdown within the platform. This prevents premature shoe dislodgement without necessarily sacrificing both comfort and lightness. 

Supplementing the mesh upper is the internal no-sew fit cage of the lightweight running shoe. Aside from keeping the foot securely in place, it also reinforces the structure of the platform, increasing torsional rigidity. 

Meanwhile, a traditional lace-up closure is incorporated into the upper's engineering. This enables an accurate and customizable midfoot lockdown without employing too much bulk.
