Verdict from +100 user reviews

5 reasons to buy

  • Comfort: Runners say that they can "run for miles" in the Adidas Fluidflow 2.0 because of its nice, soft cushion. 
  • Lightness: All are in agreement that the shoe does NOT feel heavy on foot. 
  • Fit: The upper hugs the foot "extremely well." So much so that it prevents it from sliding around. 
  • Roomy toe box: There's enough space for natural toe splay and toe movements aren't restricted at all.  
  • Looks: Stylish, good-looking, and cool is how reviewers describe the shoe. They say it's not too flashy nor too dull. You can practically take it out on any activity. 

2 reasons not to buy

  • Not for flat-footed runners: Aside from lacking arch support, the upper of the shoe also lacks structural integrity for a stable ride. 
  • Squeaky: Many are annoyed by the screechy noise the shoe makes, especially when walking. 


Bottom line

If you're looking for an affordable running shoe that you can take on your jogs, daily runs, and walks around town, the Fluidflow 2.0 from Adidas is an excellent choice. Going beyond running-specific functions, it is also a suitable sneaker candidate. As runners put it, the Fluidflow is a great combo of "form and function."

Adidas Fluidflow 2.0: "Big on comfort" 

Whether you are hitting the pavement or just taking a casual stroll, the Fluidflow 2.0 is a running shoe that you can rely on. With the brand's cushy and lively Bounce cushion, you can run miles without any strain on your foot. Complementing the soft foam of the shoe is its knit upper, which is highly breathable, unlike traditional knit textiles.
