Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

Updates to Adidas ZG Bounce
- The Adidas ZG Bounce was designed for those who need a versatile shoe to perform a cross-training routine, lift some weights at the gym, go for a short run, or take a walk on the street. The trainer makes use of a seamless mesh upper for comfort and breathability. Multiple webbings are placed across the midfoot for a lockdown fit. The heel and forefoot are reinforced with synthetic layers for structure and durability.
- The midsole unit employs the proprietary Bounce technology. It is a responsive cushioning that provides energized comfort to the wearer.
- The trainer uses a rubber outsole which provides steadiness. It has miniature treads that enhance the grip on various surfaces.
Adidas ZG Bounce size and fit
The Adidas ZG Bounce is a men’s shoe that comes in a range of full and half sizes. It tends to run large, so it may be necessary to go a half size down. The available width option is the standard D – Medium. The shoe runs slightly narrow in the forefoot which may not suit people with wider foot dimensions.
The Adidas ZG Bounce uses rubber in its outsole unit to guard the shoe against abrasion. It features a grid-like pattern with short lugs for multi-surface traction. The square apertures allow the sole unit to remain flexible and accommodate quick direction changes.
As the name suggests, the Adidas ZG Bounce relies on the full-length Bounce material for cushioning and shock absorption. It is also engineered to be more responsive than the conventional EVA foam. Bounce consists of structured elements which stretch under pressure and jump back into place when the force is removed. It is typically used in the midsoles of Adidas workout shoes.
The Adidas ZG Bounce employs a tightly-woven mesh construction for a snug fit. It is a lightweight and stretchable material which adjusts to the shape of the foot throughout the movement. The ventilation pores allow the foot to breathe as the heat builds up. The synthetic reinforcements are added around the heel and forefoot to work as shields against abrasion.
The trainer utilizes webbings on the lateral and medial sides to secure the midfoot. They vary in width to provide a different amount of support depending on the area.
The inside is lined with soft textile. It serves to deliver a great in-shoe feel. At the back, the padded collar keeps the ankle area comfortable and irritation-free. It also locks the heel down and prevents accidental shoe removal.
