Beat the heat with the Adidas Galaxy 5
The shoe's mesh upper is not only light; it's also very perforated. It's perfect for warm days.
The upper is very supportive, you don't have to worry about slips. On top of this, the lacing system securely locks the foot in place and stays tied.
The heel is a letdown
There's barely any structure and reinforcement in the shoe's rearfoot, many have reported experiencing heel slips.
After only a few miles, the upper has already torn open. The midsole has packed out, and the outsole already has significant wear and tear.
