micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Front of the shoe where the shell toe and the shoe meet will bust after 6 months of wear. Only worn twice a week. Same thing with 3 other friends who bought this same shoe, would not recommend this at all.
This shoe is interesting. It looks great in pictures but in reality, the material on the toe box - that reverse-studded neoprene - looks cheap in person. This shoe's sole is very comfortable BUT it is a bit narrow for a size 9 (what I normally wear). It also has terrible breathability. Upon closer inspection, some of the the dimples on the polyester are actual perforations but the majority are not. This shoe becomes an oven very quickly. The material on the back of the shoe (the white) is very nice. Overall, shoe is disappointing since it looks and feels worse than what I'd expect from adidas.
As a high school distance runner, I have run over 150+ miles in these. As a neutral striker, I was looking for something that would give me support in the mid foot and in parts of the heel. These did not give me proper support in that area, and my runs would be very uncomfortable. However, these are perfect for tempos and other speed workouts.
I love how comfortable these shoes are, they felt like I have some them for years and are perfectly pre broke in, unfortunately, they were just that, broke. The rubber on the soles separated from the soles not even 2 weeks after I bought them. But they were so comfy I didn't send them back well here I am 5 weeks in to wearing them and now the some is snaggi,g carpet and the other shoe is doing the same thing.
Love everything about it EXCEPT the tongue. It's way too long and it's squeaky. Keep thinking I'm stepping on my dog's chew toy when walking through my house. Change the tongue and maybe slim down the sole a bit and they'd be perfect. Similar to the Gazelle OG.
Phenomenal shoe! The bounce sole provides amazing cousin, great traction even on dusty floors, primeknit is extremely comfortable and breathable while keeping your foot locked down! Color ways could be better, but all around brilliant shoe for a great price too.
These are some of the best shoes I've ever worn. 3 years ago I purchased a version of these shoes that I customized and only now are they starting to wear out. I was excited to buy a new pair, but disappointed to see that adidas no longer offers a size 15 option for the customizable version of the shoe. That's my only complaint with them. Other than that, you won't find a finer product.
Great pair with quality materials. Boost provides the best cushioning out of any runner brands. 10/10 would buy again. Called friends telling them if they don't have these yet, then they need to purchase a pair. Boost is the best. Plan on qualifying for Boston my next marathon in these. Make you run faster and jump higher. Lightweight, breathable, Adidas you did it again. A+ pair, the best runner I've ever owned.
Let me begin by saying I love these shoes. I've had them for a week and have used them every day for high bar squats. I have poor ankle mobility due to an old fractured tibia that still has a plate and screws in place, yet the heel lift in the AdiPowers help me keep an upright posture which in turn has eliminated my low back pain. I have gone from a wide hip dominant low bar squat to a narrower stance high bar squat that is more quad dominant. I'm not big on style but they look and fit great! The Velcro strap sets very secure and the tongue doesn't slide down the inside. I wear only for squats so I can't say if they help or are comfortable for other lifts.
ordered a size 7 for my son but it ended up like a 7.5. I would suggest to order a half size down if you can. The black color looks like like navy blue. Shoe is very stylish and comfortable. Overall good
Everything about the shoes are good, however when I first wear it I had realised the inner sole is different in size, one is my size but the other is definitely smaller than the other. Comfort is good, I love the design but finishing I would say can be improved.
Really comfortable shoe. I would have given this shoe five stars except I am undetermined if the cushioning in the forefoot is less than previous or not. After some longer runs, I've found my front foot pads a little tender; it may be because I have been off running for a period because of injury and am now getting back to longer distances. Still the shoe forms around the foot very nicely and the heel cushioning and support is excellent.
Usually I wear an 11 but i ordered a 10.5 and they fit perfect. I also got mine personalized; the wording could of been a tad bit cleaner but definitely worth the $10 extra. Went with the high tops instead of the lows for fall into winter, but they still look great in winter. And to mix it up from the original Superstars.
Stan Smith "Pinwheels" Holy Grail of shoes. Literally everywhere I go wearing this, I get huge positive energy. I visited Sam's Tailor in Hong Kong, and the suitmakers were immediately freaking out. These guys hang out with celebrities every day, for sure they want their customers to be happy, but they were genuinely elated I was planning on wearing a custom white suit with these Stan Smiths. Out here in Asia, the design is so much more future than in the USA - I really hope Adidas continues pushing the envelope and making some seapunk . vaporwave . tumblr cyberpunk style shoes for the kids. Especially back in the US not many companies are really pushing the limits of design in that way (yet). I know based on my Stan Smith pinwheels that Adidas is one brand who is actively stepping it up. Please make some vaporwave cyber-shoes!
Its comfortable, and fits well. The issue is that when I am playing, and moving hard, the sole of the shoe slips and starts to fold. It is extremely frustrating and ridiculous. A $140 pair of shoes should not have the soles slide around and mess up. No other tennis shoe does this.
I got these shoes because of the style but I wasn't sure how comfortable they were going to be or how well they would fit, but I love these shoes I show them off and they are super comfortable and I can just slip them on. I do recommend getting a size up.
Leather! Comfortable with the great Gazelle arch support. Glad these are leather which holds up to the elements better than suede without all the need to prep them so much. Gazelles are one of the best trainers Adidas produces.
Narrow fit but comfortable stride. I usually wear a 9.5 US in Adidas Originals but my Ultra boost were a bit too big in 9.5 so I chose 9 in these but they were pretty tight and my toe was too close for comfort to the tip of shoe. I have returned them for a 9.5 and fit is much better. They synthetic materials look cool juxtaposed together. I am going to do some HIT workouts and see how they stand up.
Very comfortable, light weight. But like others have mentioned it picks up dirt like carzy. Brought them on a week long trip to Sanf Francisco and Truckee, Ca; had to clean every time after wearing them. Got to the point that i avoided wearing them on certain occasions.
The Rod Laver has been updated to a gum outsole, which provides better grip and traction than previous versions of the shoe. Way to destroy a classic! These shoes are like bricks and are uncomfortable for everyday wear. My previous pairs were way lighter and were quality shoes. These are garbage and are being returned. Sorry Adidas, you messed up. Bring back the light versions, or just don't bother.
They're beautiful shoes, but the heel is too loose and the toes are too tight. There's no balance. Hence why I had to go with a size down for my heels to actually stay in the shoes while walking at the expense of my toes. However, they seem like they need some breaking in, unlike other sneakers as that front has gotten better, but not by much.
The "customized" version of this shoe is not like the original. It is thin and cheap. I have to buy the custom to get 13.5 size, but the 13.5 size custom is not the same size as the last 3 pairs I ordered.
I have about six pairs of various Stan Smiths. These are my favorites. These are lined. They is so key to the Stan Smith offerings that I cannot underestimate the importance of lining on this model. This shoe is a stone cold classic and extremely comfortable.
I have worn Rod Laver for years. I have a high arch and these were the only shoe that fit my arch and I just had to get a new pair and they changed the arch. Could not wear them. Change back the arch, please.
The shoes are extremely heavy (1# lb ea.) and have a sloppy fit compared to originals. Wearing since 1978 handicapped with one arm serious tennis player! I always ordered 3-4 pairs at a time, because I could tie with hand and foot! Have two new pairs left they suck! Don't waste your money buying, not the same shoe by far!
