  • Reviewers welcomed the Stable Frame and the TORSION System, which offer high levels of mid-foot stability and control.
  • The rubber outsole is durable and capable of providing reliable traction over the roads.

3 reasons not to buy

Updates to Adidas Revenge 2

  • The Revenge 2.0 brings slight changes for runners to enjoy. Adidas uses a lighter mesh to reduce the shoe’s weight. It should help runners have a faster and longer ride.
  • Adidas also made the upper a bit more flexible by introducing a less rigid toe protection while the rib cage is no longer as stiff as before. While the updates still give the 2nd version of the Revenge enough protection and support, these improvements enhance overall comfort.

Adidas Revenge 2 size and fit

Adidas offers standard fit and sizing in this model, which is similar to the past version. It provides a decent space in the heel and forefoot while the midfoot is quite snug and comfortable. This should be a great option for the majority of runners. Available widths are D and B while sizes are from 6 to 13 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.


Outsole

The outsole is a blend of Continental Rubber for maximum grip on different areas while the heel is covered with the extremely tough Adiwear carbon rubber. Adidas has put this combination to good use in many of the shoes in its arsenal.


Midsole

Adidas’ revolutionary Boost midsole sits in the engine room of the Revenge 2.0. It gives the shoe superb responsive cushioning. The stability features of the shoe include a plastic shank in the medial side to support the excessive inward rolling of the foot while a Torsion System keeps the foot balanced with every stride.


Upper

The upper brings more than adequate breathability and support through the mesh netting and the synthetic overlays. A rib cage helps support the foot and superbly locks down the midfoot. For added stability, an external heel counter snugly holds the foot from any unnecessary movements.
