Overview of this review
Use - The Adidas Adizero LJ 2 is best used in all the sub-categories of the track jumping meet. It can accommodate the long jump, triple jump, and pole vault competitions.
Spike Type - Known for providing superior grip, pyramid spikes are suitable for the jumping spike. These are replaceable to cater to the varying needs of the athletes.
Spike Plate - Just like the Adidas Adizero Finesse, the track spike features a TPU spike plate. It is located at the forefoot, promoting a robust takeoff. It houses the changeable pins of the shoe for a multi-surface grip.
To offer a new and improved jumping platform, the Adidas Adizero LJ 2 features a revamped upper look. It sports a more aggressive facade.
For improved cushioning and responsiveness, a foam insole is incorporated within the foot chamber. It maintains a featherlight composition for lesser bulk.
CoolEver mesh is also integrated to optimize the airflow. This promotes a healthy foot environment, eliminating odor-causing bacteria.
Size and fit
The Adidas Adizero LJ 2 only runs in men’s sizing scale. It is recommended for women to deduct 1.5 from their usual size. This is intended to secure an accurate fit and size.
The jumping spike's components influencing its fit are the CoolEver mesh and foam insole. The CoolEver mesh provides a comfortable yet tight wrap around the foot for maximum security. The foam insole gives a supportive fit to the track spike.
Just like most track shoes, the Adizero LJ 2’s outsole is comprised of a TPU spike plate. As the outer underfoot coverage, the plate offers sturdiness for wear and tear protection. With its makeup, it delivers efficient toe-offs. Moreover, it mitigates shock upon impact with every footstrike.
For a plush comfort within the jumping platform, a foam insole is embedded. The composition of the insole supplies sufficient cushioning, shielding the foot from injuries. This also helps heighten the responsiveness of the track spike.
To adhere to the jump shoe’s featherlight construction, a lightweight CoolEver mesh is incorporated in the upper. It features yarns that are clover-like in shape. With such a structure, the mesh wicks away moisture. This, in turn, eliminates bacteria build-up which can cause foot odor.
The CoolEver mesh holds the foot securely in place as it envelopes around the foot’s natural shape and contours. It is durable, protecting the foot from abrasive ground elements.
