  • Comfortable: Adidas Response Super provides a homey world for the feet making long walks pleasurable.
  • Cushioned: Sneaker adventurers and running enthusiasts appreciate how the bottom side softens the impact. Wearers “barely feel the hard contact.” 
  • Light: A thin layer of mesh that makes up its cover strips a lot of weight from this kick.
  • Supportive: A plasticky layer around the lower rear side grasps the heel. It keeps the foot in place when making quick strides, light exercises, and jogging. 
  • Value for money: Despite its budget-friendly price, weartesters say it isn’t cheaply made.

2 reasons not to buy

  • Tight toe box: Sneaker users are saying that it feels tight at the forefoot section. 
  • Heel rubbing: Wearers hoped that the extended back would be shorter to prevent the skin from getting irritated and chafed.

Adidas Response Super gets you moving with ease 

Adidas hasn't got enough of its Boost addiction, transforming regular sneakers into all-arounder, go-to pickups. Taking cues from its Boost running shoe lineup, the Three Stripes whipped up the Adidas Response Super. It’s one of the running-oriented sneaks you can comfortably strap up for home exercises, gym workouts, around town errands, and intercity travels.

What a Super brings to the table

  • The back of the foot gets cradled by the Boost foam, made of soft micropellets that buffer the foot from impact.
  • Response foam catches the ball of the foot, which helps you propel forward for an easier stride. 
  • Adibounce sockliner complements the cushioning system in the midsole that allows you to enjoy long walks. 
  • Lightly crafted mesh covering that’s breathable for a comfier feel across the top.
  • Minimal layering adapts to different streetwear styles.
