  • The Adidas Questar Ride is a running shoe that’s designed for those who have neutral pronation. It makes use of a thick-weave mesh with prominent breathing pores to provide a breezy in-shoe experience. Minimal printed overlays help in providing a snug and secure fit.
  • Cloudfoam is this model’s primary cushioning unit. It’s expected to offer a comfortable underfoot experience. A rubber exterior protects against wear and tear.

The Adidas Questar Ride was constructed using the regular measurements. It’s meant to accommodate the standard sizing choices of consumers. When it comes to width, the options are B – Medium for women and D – Medium for men. The semi-curved shape of this running shoe mimics the natural curve of the human foot.

A rubber compound makes up most of the external section of the Adidas Questar Ride’s platform. It runs from the forefoot to the medial part. Exposed foam with traction patterns and impact-dispersing grooves composes the lateral crash pad.

Non-prominent gripping cubes heighten the grip-capacity of the outsole. They make sure to accommodate the swerving and turning motions of the wearer during the running session.

Same as with the popular Adidas Duramo 9, the midsole unit of the Adidas Questar Ride is comprised of a full-length Cloudfoam unit. This cushioning material offers protection from impact and responsive toe-offs. It doesn’t have a stiff configuration so the runner can bend the toe joints naturally.

An Ortholite® sock liner provides the runner with additional cushioning. It has antimicrobial and anti-moisture capacities which allow it to maintain a healthy and dry environment for the foot.

A mesh material serves as the upper unit of the Questar Ride. It has a thick construction to improve its durability, yet it’s also configured to accommodate the form and motion of the foot. Moreover, its ventilation holes are numerous and semi-noticeable, allowing air to flow into the foot-chamber with ease.

The interior lining is made up of a soft textile which aims to maintain a comfortable wrap. It also prevents hot spots and bunched-up sections from causing skin irritation.

The tongue and collar are lightly padded. These components are meant to keep the foot in place, preventing it from deviating from its regular position in the interior chamber.

A traditional lacing system is employed in this product. It makes use of semi-flat laces and plastic eyelets as the facilitators of a customizable fit. The crisscross shoestrings are anchored to the tongue unit via a stitched on pull-tab that has the ‘Adidas’ wordmark on it.

The Adidas 3-stripe is printed onto the left and right sides of the shoe. Aside from encouraging brand recognition, these prints are meant to provide a secure fit.

A heel counter is stitched to the back of the upper. This add-on holds the Achilles and ankles, keeping them from wobbling during the running session. Its tip is a fabric pull tab which assists the runner in wearing and removing the running shoe.
