Verdict from 100+ user reviews

7 reasons to buy

  • Appealing: Urban adventurers recommend the Adidas Kaptir Super to those who need stylish running sneakers. 
  • Cushioned heel: The thick Boost at the back of the shoe is “cushy." 
  • Durable: This kick holds its shape well. Its middle layer “stays cushioned for a long time.”
  • Snug: Its padded collar is “slightly tight but not constricting.” On the contrary, it provides a homey feel after giving it a good break-in time.  
  • Elevated: Its rear side is thick and offers an added boost in height.
  • Glowing: Some of the neon colorways pop in the dark. 
  • Affordable: Compared to other Boost-integrated sneakers like Stella McCartney Ultraboost, this pair is exceptionally cheap.

4 reasons not to buy

  • Squeaky toe: The flapping sound at the forefoot can be annoying.
  • Heavy: It’s one of the chunky Adidas kicks that feels weighty. 
  • Warm: This sneaker with a textile and generously padded interior isn’t as breathable as the Ultraboost Undftd.
  • Thin insole: Wearers hoped it had a thicker and more supportive inner sole.

Bottom line

Adidas Kaptir Super speaks to you if you love the NMD spirit but prefer a more chunky sole and the springiness of Boost. This sports-inspired sneaker gets you covered for your round-the-clock errands and other casual day-to-day activities. Its upbeat color range isn’t for the faint of heart. Plus, you can grab this for a wallet-friendly price.

Adidas Kaptir Super: Fitted for an active lifestyle

After dropping oodles of colorways for the sports-inspired Adidas Kaptir and Kaptir X, the Three Stripes adds another brood to the pack, the Adidas Kaptir Super. It invites you to be playful with your daily styling as it comes in a broad spectrum of colors, stretching from neutral to vibrant and neon.

Color aside, the most noteworthy takeaway you can obtain from this pair is optimum cushioning. Adidas drops the Cloudfoam sole integrated into the other shoes to give way to the super responsive and squishy Boost. Without the need to break the bank, you can swing this running-inspired Adidas kick from the gym to the streets while getting praises for its appealing glow. 

Adidas Kaptir Super and its Boost cousins

  • Adidas ZX 2K Boost isn’t shy in colors as some of its variations appear with a two-toned sole. Like the Kaptir Super, the heel section of its Boost sole is wrapped in a supportive TPU casing. Though it weighs lighter than the Kaptir shoe, this ZX option weighs heavier on the budget. 
  • Adidas ZX 1K Boost is designed with a more classic-looking cover retroed with modern touches. Instead of a heel-to-toe Boost cushioning seen in the Adidas Kaptir Super, this kick is designed with standard foam in front and the pillowy Boost on the heel. But it’s a bit pricier than the Kaptir shoe.
