micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Good for concrete and track running, comfy and lightweight. To be honest I expected them to be 'bouncier' that a regular running shoe due to the blades, but I don't feel any noticeable difference. You also can't really take them off of a smooth surface at all. I sometimes run along the canal on a surface of small stones and you can hear what sounds like the blades cracking/snapping as you hit the ground which makes you feel uncomfortable, as if they're going to break. Small stones also get wedged in between the blades and you can hear them scrape on the ground as you run.
I purchased this pair of spring blades in Red. I love them. There are so comfy and has a lot of elasticity. Before when I run with other shoes, My left foot hurt, but I did not such problems with spring blade. LOVE it. I will purchase another pair after this pair can not use. I will recommend this shoes for sure. And I got a lot of curiosity and compliments from other runners when I run on the trails.
The shoes fit well though they are on the narrow side since my feet are wide. They are comfortable due to the upper material being able to stretch. I am able to wear them for long periods of time without discomfort.
I like them because they have a cushion and I walk and stand a lot so it had a bounce to my steps and it soothed my feet as I walked and had little pain compared to flat shoes and I think I won't ever buy any other shoes!!
Actually like the design and concept but where the exterior plastic sides with the 3 stripes meet the mesh part of the plastic cuts into the foot. I though I could wear it out and with use will break shoes in and somehow soften this area but no chance - longer I wore em the worse they cut into my foot eventually taking them off in sheer agony
This is a mixed review: I normally wear 9.5 running shoes, but these fit great with a size 10. They are very comfortable & provide a lot of support and a snug fit. This was my second pair of Springblades, but I am returning them because the color is wrong. From the description & pictures the look like a bright Red color. However when I received them, they were definitely a Hot Pink / Florescent Orange kind of color - Definitely NOT Red. **I might try again with a different color**
I have used this trainer for a 5K treadmill run most Mondays for approximately 12-18 months i train at a 17 minute 5K so lets say they have been used at a reasonable pace. This Monday i got off the treadmill to notice that both shoes had snapped clean in half. For a product costing upwards of £100 i don't think this is acceptable. Great trainer if you're going to run slowly but anyone who is going to give them some grief then don't bother.
Bought a pair when they first came out. Loved them until oneday I was walking in them and the blades got caught in a grate and the shoe snapped in half both of them.What can I do.. paid alto of money for two shoes now in halfs
I love the shoes. I Have 5 pairs. For years I have had problems with my feet. I have heel spurs, Plantar fasciitis , and a torn posterior tibula tendon... Since I found these shoes my heels never touch the ground anymore I can stay on my feet for hours at a time. I even had custom made orthotics that do nothing for me. Just a cushion for my arch and I am good all day...I would highly recommend these shoes.
As long as Adidas makes Springblades I'll own a pair. They rock comfort and make any surface feel balanced and smooth. The only thing I can protest is the size difference between these and the previous generation of Springblades. I had several of these shoes before they were redesigned and had no fitment issues or comfort issues. The new ones are amazingly soft inside but I have found they seem to fit a bit smaller than the previous build. I'll still wear them, but it was a little disappointing to lose the perfect fit of the last generation.
I love adidad blades and since they came out that's all that I wear. I have about 6 pairs and they all fit comfortable enough to wear all day. My job entails me being on my feet all day and directly after work I go to the gym. I have a really narrow foot and Adidas blades or just playing Adidas seem to fit my foot perfect. They give me the support that I need and are extremely light in weight. I love Adidas blades in would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
I am not a long distance runner. I played football and would have loved these shoes if they were made in my time. I walk and jog some and I am not a little dude. Love this purchase. I have been a Adidas man since grade school.
I purchased a pair of the previous generation of these shoes for my wife less than three months ago. The sole broke in two with just light use. Unless the sole design has changed on this generation I would avoid these shoes. I have reached out to customer service so we will see if the stand behind the product. Tried to upload photos with no success. Prior to the break she did enjoy the fit and energy return of the shoes.
