Verdict from 5 user reviews

6 reasons to buy

  • Stylish: Style-savvy wearers adore the Adidas Ozweego Celox as it puts a flavorful spin to lots of sporty and casual outfits. 
  • Comfy: Its thick heel that resembles the Yeezy 500 provides a homey world for the feet. 
  • Light: Despite having a chunky sole like other Adidas dad shoes, it’s surprisingly unheavy.
  • Breathable: Its mesh component doesn’t make the feet feel toasty at all.
  • Premium quality: Like most Adidas Ozweegos, this one is durably pieced together.
  • Affordable: It comes way cheaper than similar-looking kicks such as the Yeezy 500 and Yeezy Boost 700.

2 reasons not to buy

  • Tight toe room: Like the original Ozweego and the trail-inspired version, this too feels narrow at the forefoot.
  • Limited colors: Lots of chunky sneaker fans wished this Ozweego version came in more colorways.

Bottom line

Adidas fuses retro elements with a futuristic vibe for the Ozweego Celox. This head-turning sneaker speaks to a crowd who loves anything with a wildly chunky sole. Comfort is out of the question as it’s ready to soften every stride given its performance-ready cushioning components. It resembles the coveted Yeezy 500 without the need to break the bank.

Adidas Ozweego Celox: A cheaper alternative to Yeezy 500

German footwear giant Adidas understands that dad shoes don't just belong to the 90s generation; they’re here to stay. From its well-loved Ozweego line, the Three Stripes puts out the Ozweego Celox. It instantly hits the core of ugly shoe-loving individuals ferreting out for a cheaper alternative to Kanye West sneakers

Adidas Ozweego Celox side by side the Adidas Ozweego

These comeback models carry the same DNA as the Adidas Ozweego 3, a 1998 running shoe that inspired a slew of modern-day Weegz (a term used for the Ozweegos in the late 90s). Below are their notable differences and similarities. 

  • Style. If the Adidas Ozweego comes with a sharper and sleeker body than the 1990s runner, the Ozweego Celox appears a bit beefier yet light and comfy. 
  • Breathability. Ozweego Celox may be covered with a synthetic caging system over the mesh underlay, but it remains ventilated as the Adidas Ozweego.
  • Value. Both kicks belong to the budget-friendly range under Adidas' chunky sneakers. Hits of suede give the Celox a premium finish without being costly.
