Have always been a fan of Stan Smith shoes and Adidas brand in general. I wanted an all white stan smith, so I decided for a customized version. I normally wear size 6, but since customize version can't be returned.. i decided to go to the Footlocker and try the Stan Smith with the green heel patch. I tried size 6, walked around the store and it was perfect. Size was good. I ordered it, and waited patiently for it to arrive. To my dissappointment, the size 6 is too big. I can put in both my index and middle fingers in between even after i put my foot in. I can't return the shoes and now i am stuck with one that doesn't fit. So dissappointed. :( i still want my all white sneakers but now i am debating if i should just go with another brand or try to customize it again one size down.
Personally, I feel few trainers come close to the flexibility and comfort of Climacool. I committed to buying a pair of these way back in the 00s when they first launched (see pic). And (I kid you not), I have literally stuck with the same pair of trainers for over 15+years! During that time, they've been used mainly for gym and home workouts. In fact, I was so reluctant to change my old pair that I have superglued them back together several times! That is until recently when I stumbled across the new 2016/17 Climacool1 version. It was a no-brainer. Delivery was swift, they even arrived two days before the due date and the product doesn't disappoint. I love them so much, I'm probably even going to buy another pair real soon!
I had a pair of these years ago and loved them. Glad I chose to go back. They are comfy, keep your feet nice and fresh, and look cool. Only 1 issue, there is a bit of plastic in the heel which gives it it's shape. I find it can sometimes irritate the back of my foot. Time will tell as to whether or not it softens up a bit. Other than that, very pleased.
Rod Laver will never be what they used to be because Adidas has changed the composition of the outsole from the lightweight polyurethane for what they were known for, to the heavy sticky rubber outsoles that they are made with now. I miss the originals. Adidas claims that these are originals, but when they change the composition of the materials, the performance abilities are taken away. Adidas needs to stand by their products for the intentions of what their products were made for, performance!!! What's even worse, is the fact that Adidas is now selling them at a ridiculously higher price!!! Shame shame shame
I needed to have new work shoes (all black) and I need to walk allot so they needed to be comfy too, well you guys offer these two in the perfect shoe! It's the perfect color, perfect fit and suuuper comfy and stylish!
i didnt find these as comfortable as other adidas trainers. i usually buy the bounce ones. love the colour & the look of the trainers. prob recommend if you dont actually want to do anything too strenuous in them but look good.
