Who should NOT buy the sneaker

If you like the vibe of the Swift Run series but want a higher quality option, consider the Adidas Swift Run Primeknit or the Adidas Swift Run Barrier.

The embroidered knit upper also has a modern design that does not fall behind the aesthetics of newly released sneakers by other brands.

Keeps you comfortably cushy

The comfort provided by the Adidas Swift Run is what most of the wearers gush about the shoe. They were delighted with how the shoe felt so comfortable on their feet and how it keeps their feet from hurting.

Adidas Swift Run cushioning

The shoe’s cushioning stems from the brand’s running shoes, which means you get a well-cushioned experience even if you have to walk all day long.

Sock-like comfort of the Adidas Swift Run

The stretchy knit upper of the Adidas Swift Run offers a nice snug yet comfortable fit. Many sneakerheads with wide feet also attest to the comfort of the Adidas Swift Run’s upper as it stretches to accommodate some toe wiggling.

Another welcome attribute is the one-piece collar and tongue which allows for a quick on and off.

Light on the wallet

With the average price of Adidas sneakers being $118, the Swift Run comes at an MSRP of $85. Not to mention the discounts that can make it as low as $30.

Light on the feet too

Many wearers agree that the Adidas Swift Run creates a barely-there experience with its light sole and “disappearing” upper.
