4 reasons not to buy

  • Tongue: A few users notice that the tongue is a bit firm and can dig into the foot if worn without socks.
  • Traction: Those who tried running on wet surfaces mention that the shoe lacks the needed grip.
  • Ankle fit: Some testers are disappointed because the ankle has a loose, unsupportive fit.
  • Comfort: Runners who preferred a plushy underfoot cushioning find the midsole of the shoe firmer compared to the Boost, which makes the X90004D less comfortable for all-day wear. 

Bottom line

Featuring a stylish look and advanced midsole design, the Adidas X90004D is a running shoe that functions well on casual days and gym workouts. It had a lightweight design with a supportive upper and traction that works well on dry surfaces.

Since the Adidas 4D midsole feels a bit firm, those who are looking for a softer underfoot cushioning may want to consider other Adidas running shoes with Boost midsole

Advanced midsole design and more

  • Data-driven outsole design-  The outsole tread pattern aims to deliver excellent traction on various paved surfaces

Good to know

  • The Adidas X9000 line also includes the X9000L2, X9000L3, and X9000L4. Equipped with a data-driven design for a comfortable running experience, the Adidas X9000L2 uses the Bounce midsole while the X9000L3 and X9000L4 make use of the Boost midsole. These shoes are meant to deliver a responsive ride while keeping the design stylish and modern.
  • The molded heel piece of the Adidas X90004D is reminiscent of the 4D Run 1.0, the first neutral running shoe from Adidas that uses the 3D-printed midsole.
