Who should NOT buy it
Those looking for a stability running shoe should not get the Edge Lux 4.
Runners who want to up their pace should consider getting a pair of tempo shoes instead.
Adidas Edge Lux 4 vs. 3
- For a better ground feel, the Edge Lux has a reduced stack height (by 5mm).
- It has a new stretch knit upper for a more precise wrap.
- Apart from enhancing the shoe's fit, the upper also amps up breathability.
- Featuring an updated outsole, the Adidas Edge Lux 4 promises multi-terrain traction.
Keeping steady strides
According to various reviewers, the Adidas Edge Lux 4 is very "supportive." This is owed to its Bounce midsole, which is a firmer version of the renowned Adidas Boost.
Even better, it's not harsh to the feet despite its rigidity.
Slips shouldn't worry you
Just like the Adidas Pureboost and New Balance Cypher Run v2, the Edge Lux has a stretch knit upper that delivers a form-fitting wrap.
It follows the natural shape and contours of the foot so well, there have been no reports of slips.
Lockdown is A-OK!
A lot of runners applaud the thicker laces of the shoe. It complements the snug upper in giving a secure fit.
The Adidas Edge Lux 4 bites
Sporting a multi-directional outsole, experts find the Edge Lux an "excellently grippy" shoe. They've tried it in wet and dry conditions, and it's been a star.
Skimping on weight
The shoe has wowed many with its "barely-there" weight.
No more sweaty feet
The upper has a lot of perforations that let in air. Even under warm weather, testers share that their feet remain dry and odor-free.
Protects the feet
Apart from traction, the shoe's rubber outsole also mitigates shock during impact.
Expect a dull ride from the Adidas Edge Lux 4
The Bounce midsole doesn't live up to its name. It's not as springy as the Boost foam; a number of road runners complained about it being "uninspiring."
