Who should buy the Adidas Ozrah
Ozrah is the type of sneaker that will definitely grab your attention if:
- You are a fan of Yeezy’s. No, it’s not a shoe from his collection but it sure looks like one!
- You can’t imagine your style without chunky sneakers. Ozrah has a good amount of bulk without being overkill.
- You are ready to pay extra for a durable shoe. Its materials and craftsmanship convinced sneakerheads of being “more high-end than just a standard Adidas release.”
Who should not buy the sneaker
Ozrah feels how it looks: sturdy and firm. Some people love this type of shoe feel but if you really value soft cushioning and a forgiving fit, check out the Adidas Nite Jogger or the NMD_R1.
For another thing, these are no cheap Adidas sneakers. The average price of Adidas kicks is $118, which is $22 less than the Ozrah’s original price. If you want a lower-end version of this design, consider Adidas Ozelia ($100).
Dope like Yeezy but costs less
“Can’t believe these are still sitting on shelves!” - an expert sums up the excitement that many sneaker hunters share for the Ozrah. They believe that Adidas really hit the nail on the head with this release.
Adidas Ozrah’s resemblance to Yeezy 700 and 500 is the first thing that reviewers point out. They consider it a fantastic alternative given the $60 lower asking price. It looks like “something that was born out of Yeezy’s mind.” Some people even find the Ozrah sleeker and not as chunky, which helps it drift away from the ugly dad shoes.
The shoe’s color combinations are highly praised by the wearers. Some really like the unique palettes and claim that they look better in person than in the pictures. One shoe expert also noted that the use of new elements made the sneaker “really unusual and quite interesting.” Another YouTube reviewer thinks of it as an early 2000’sneaker.
But despite its unique design and color choices, people still found it easy to create multiple styles and outfits with the shoe.
Don’t let the chunky exterior of the Ozrah confuse you, it is still a rather snug-fitting sneaker. Here are some of the comments that describe its fit:
- “Very firm and snug but comfy at the same time”
- “Huge looking while still feeling tight”
- “Really just locks down on your foot”
- “I think you can wear them untied and not worry about your foot slipping out”
The moment you pull the laces tight, the plastic sidewalls really wrap around your foot giving a secure feeling. A few people find these reinforcements too hard for their liking, so if you have any problems with the ankle bone or bunions, it’s better to skip the Ozrah. For reference, if you’ve worn Adidas Ozweego, Ozrah would feel stiffer in the upper.
Excellent quality that’s expected of Adidas
A lot of wearers pointed out how substantial and durable the Ozrah feels. They agree that it’s an incredibly sturdy and well-made sneaker.
It looks robust and is immune to wear and tear in the long run. That chunky sole as well as protective layers on the upper create a lasting shield.
And to those who can't stand it when sneakers get dusty, this Adidas is quite easy to keep clean. A simple occasional wiping is enough.
It is comfortable if you like your sneakers firm
Ozrah draws inspiration not only from the style of Yeezy’s but also inherits their Adiprene+ cushioning. Don’t expect it to be soft and bouncy like Adidas Boost but for a firmer sneaker cushioning technology, it’s definitely comfortable.
The sneaker reviewers also warn that it is heavy but not in a bad way. As long as you are okay with your shoes feeling a little stiff and chunky on the foot, it is described as “just the right amount.”
Orzah is generally comfortable but it is “more angled at the fashion side than for comfort.” So it’s not the joyful, cloud-like comfort that you’d get from a Skechers shoe. And even that didn’t stop it from becoming some people’s daily beater.
Ozrah is part of Adidas’ sustainability mission
According to the brand, 20% of the materials making up the shoe’s upper contains a minimum of 50% recycled content.
