Rated 5 out of 5Â by DAVEROONIE Best workout shoe EVER!
I used to wear the Vibram finger shoes and i walk to and from the gym but I hated how you can feel every single little micro pebble on the sidewalk and every one of those pebbles hurts to step on! Not only that but the vibrams just aren't very comfortable. They're like wearing Native American moccasins but with toe separations because there's no cushion or support. The adidas adipures however feel AMAZING!! They're super comfortable(and way cuter than vibrams in my opinion!). I wear a size 11 in Adidas very comfortably and the adipures in 11 fit me like a glove. I know in vibrams they might say order a size down. I'd say get your true size but I guess everyone has different feet. Anyway and they don't smell bad even after an intense workout. I hope Adidas makes these forever :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bharat A The Most Natural fit!
Needles today these are to be worn without socks, these are suppose to be snug fit to your entire foot including your toes.
They are definitely and little bit hard to put them on your feet. The best way to put them on is to slide your toes all the way into the individual chambers of each toe( make sure each toe is seated properly into its chamber) and then slide the back of the shoes up and over your ankles. This way is the most frustration-free to put these ones on.
Once they ARE properly seated and fitted , then "Oh Boy", they are so comfortable and a natural fit, then you won't go back to your regular training shoes.
You have to get used to be able to put them, but once you do that, these are worth every penny and they more enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by T-roy Love these shoes!!!
First off, Adidas is the only sneaker i wear. I bought these shoes about six months ago, and I'm amazed at how comfortable and natural they feel. They provide great support and balance during cardio and workouts. What kills me is when people seem them they respond with a snicker, so I reply back with a snicker because the HATERS have no clue about comfortable these things are. BUY A PAIR AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF!!!! The only suggestions I have is that Adidas make a thin toe sock to go along with these shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Baby Brown Biscut Great but hot
I got these toe shoes because i had the Vibram Fivefingers and i wanted to see which was better. My Vibrams were lighter, more flexible, form fitting, thinner, and have better airflow.
Yet these Adipure Trainers were more durable. Over all a good shoe for a first try at a toe shoe, but needs a little more work.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TheBatman Great work out shoes!
I love my toes shoes. I told myself I would never buy a pair of toes shoes, but when Adidas came out with a pair, I had to get them. They are great to work out in and do core training in. At first they are very, very difficult to get on, but I have mastered sliding these on. They are great for the balls of my feet and I feel like Spider-Man working out in these things. Great buy! Can't wait see when they make another model that is even better!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CaseyElton Great, Natural Feel
If you're one of those athletes who likes the natural, bare feel or your foot, this is the shoe for you. I am 15, a tennis player, and I love going to the gym to train. Normally, I don't wear shoes. And when I do, they have to be very lightweight and full of motion. I like this feel because I have sensitive feet and I have to be comfortable to train as much as I do. When I tried these shoes, it felt like I was barefoot! The toes have so much motion, the material is so thin and lightweight, and the support is surprisingly good. After two months of wear, there is hardly any significant wearing down. The crosses near the toes on the bottom of the shoe allow vertical and horizontal movement of the foot in the shoe. All in all, this the perfect shoe if you're a trainer who wants a lot of freedom and movement in your workouts.

These shoes have drastically changed my attitude towards working out and running. They are very comfortable and allow me to get a full motion with my foot. The only thing I caution you about is the fact that at times they are kind of hard to get used to at first because they might feel weird at first so don't knock it on the first try, get used to it!

When you consider that the human body has evolved over many millenia, it makes sense that a shoe should conform to the natural shape of the foot as closely as possible. There are evolutionary reasons for the shape of our bodies, including our feet. The designers of this shoe have realized this, and the result is a supremely comfortable shoe. usually the first thing I do when I get home is take off my shoes. However, with these adipure trainers, I am happy to leave them on. They are so comfortable. I saw another reviewer wrote that he would sleep in them, and I feel the same. When I walk around outside, I feel a closer connection with the world and more aware of my surroundings. I also feel like I am moving more gracefully, almost like an animal, or how a human is supposed to move. The sweating hasn't bothered me yet, but I only bought these yesterday....

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Saint_PaulMN (Workout) Life-Changing Purchase
The title may sound a little fantastic, but I'm serious. I purchased this shoe for two reasons: improve balance and change my running stride.
I've always felt like I didn't have very good balance, and I attributed this to the fact that I walk in a flat-footed manner while wearing shoes (which is most of the time). Since I've started training with the Adipure shoe, I've noticed my balance has improved dramatically. The reason, I believe, is because it has strengthened my calf muscles by shifting my weight primarily to the balls of my feet instead of my heels. Now when I walk, I feel a noticeable amount of strength and stability when I push off at the end of my stride.
Along those lines, I also purchased the shoe because I wanted to improve my running stride. Running heel-to-toe is not the proper form. Runners should land with the balls of the feet striking first. The rest of the foot should strike at almost the same time, however, so that your feet make a "shuffling" like movement. This shifts the weight bearing onto your calves and helps reduce ground impact up through the body. Also, the calf muscles are better designed for endurance use than your powerful glutes and quads, which are meant for lifting. If you don't believe me, check out the Tarahumara tribe of Mexico. Running with the Adipure shoe allows you to easily run in this form. It takes some getting used to, and your calves will burn like crazy for a while, but soon, you'll be running faster and longer than you ever thought possible. I've always hated running too, but now, I love it. That's why this shoe was literally a life-changing purchase.
I absolutely recommend this shoe to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best Training Shoes. Period.
Adidas is ahead of the game when it comes to minimalist training shoes. As a strength coaching these are the #1 training shoe that I recommend. They are also great to train in giving you the benefits of barefoot training paired with some cushioning for serious weight training, speed, and plyometric work.
