The Adidas men’s Questarstrike is available in both men’s and women’s sizes, in regular fitting. The Questarstrike’s low-cut profile doesn’t hinder ankle mobility, so the wearer can quickly adjust to sudden foot transitions. Moreover, it uses a traditional lace-up closure, which allows the wearer to adjust the fit according to his preference—be it a bit loose or tight.

With its running-inspired silhouette, the Questarstrike looks best when worn with athleisure and active wear. To name a few, joggers, running trousers, sweatpants, workout shorts, athletic sweaters and jackets, and the like. But it is also versatile enough to go along well with casual clothing such as a pair of denim topped off with a plain tee.

The Questarstrike shoes are available in the following stylish colorways: Core Black/Core Black/Bold Gold, Core Black/Core Black/Core Black, White/Black/Active Green, Scarlet/Core Black/FTWR White, and FTWR White/FTWR White/Ash Silver.

A certified head-turner, the Questarstrike still has more to offer other than its looks. Its thick midsole features Cloudfoam (made from ethylene-vinyl acetate, or EVA, compound). Underfoot, it gives a more lightweight, bouncier, superior cushioning and more lasting comfort. It also has a textured rubber outsole for excellent grip.

In 2016, the Three Stripes brand debuted the Cloudfoam, a breakthrough in cushioning tech. It first appeared under the brand’s NEO label, which stands for “new” designs targeted at younger consumers aged between fourteen and nineteen. The NEO Cloudfoam first wielded this cushioning tech, and the young wearers of the shoe expressed that it fulfilled its promise of delivering a long-lasting comfort.

Banking on that initial success, Adidas kept on releasing new sleeker silhouettes that use the Cloudfoam tech. One of them is Questarstrike, a sporty, stylish sneaker. It has a stylish knit upper which sits atop a Cloudfoam midsole.

  • The Ortholite sock liner delivers extra comfort and protection against moisture and bacteria to keep the foot dry and healthy.
  • Branding comprised of an Adidas label on the tongue pull tab, heel area, and footbed; the iconic Three Stripes on the sidewalls; and Cloudfoam embossed on the midsole.
