Verdict from 5 user reviews

5 reasons to buy

  • Comfy: Adidas Day Jogger’s overwhelming sum of followers affirm that wearing these the whole day doesn’t feel tiring. 
  • Shock-absorbent: It offers a more distinct amount of Boost foam than that on the Nite Jogger. This unit that feels like “walking on a mattress” reduces any pressure underfoot when walking or running.
  • Light: It does have a generous supply of foam under the foot, as declared by many, but it's nowhere close to feeling heavy even by a gram.
  • Stylish: Its sporty form accompanies a lot of activewear and streetwear. So it's convenient to style up.
  • Durable: Users are praising its “superb quality.” They are pleased that these joggers don’t wear off easily.

2 reasons not to buy

  • Compact toe box: The forefoot area feels tight that it squeezes the sides of the foot.
  • Dirt catcher: Although the Day Joggers come in “lovely” and “vibrant” colors, these frequently need to be tidied up.

Bottom line

Adidas Day Jogger lets you tackle a full day’s to-do checklist without getting interrupted by foot discomfort. It’s worth a try if you wish to get the same pillowy ride as you would with the NMDs at a cheaper price tag. It offers continuous energy at every step, so you can toss this around without feeling any heaviness. This can be your easy-to-style daytime go-to kick. 

Adidas Day Jogger: Nite Jogger’s fraternal twin

After the Nite Jogger's rebirth, a 1979 racer model, the brand conceived its sibling: the Day Jogger. These kicks from the Adidas Originals take form, support, and comfort a notch higher. Decked with modern updates, both shoes deliver a toe-to-heel Boost cushioning, which is Adidas’s most responsive impact buffer made of microfoams. 

Adidas Day Jogger vs. Adidas Nite Jogger 

While both sneakers belong to the same heritage line, they flaunt slightly different assets. The daytime silhouette has a partially raised heel and is wrapped with a more aerodynamic cover. Its night brother is more asymmetrical, while this version resembles the classic racer's silhouette. Since the Nite Jogger was initially intended for night runs, reflective detailings are lined around the shoelaces and upper overlays.

While we dig deeper into the jogger family, you might want to check out the Ivy Park iteration as well, a collaboration between Beyonce and Three Stripes. Unlike the Adidas Day Jogger and Nite Jogger, this Queen B-endorsed model has an oversized tongue commonly seen in Adidas Samba models. It's also designed with a toggle-and-cord system for quick lacing.
