Rated 3 out of 5Â by BillyMac22 Not as Good as the Supernova Glide 3
After being a mostly Nike guy , I tried the Glide 3's , a couple of years ago, and was very impressed. Probably the best shoe I have owned. I was looking forward to the same... or improved characteristics in the 5. I went to the Adidas Outlet, but they did not have any Glide 5's. So, I ordered online.
But, the shoe doesn't have the arch support of the 3 (height and location). It has less shock absorption than the 3 (heel and mid-foot). And it fits much wider through the mid-foot area. I sent them back, today, at a cost of $12. Very disappointed and wondering what shoe to buy now.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ABinVA Fantastic! Lots of cushioning, like walking on air
I've never put much thought into running shoes, other than getting a color, size, & style I like until I went to Road Runner Sports to get fitted. This is one of the shoes they recommended for my particular foot type.
After getting these shoes, my feet feel better, my knees don't bother me after running, and I'm able to run longer on the treadmill. The cushioning in these shoes is fantastic.
Everyone's going to have a different shoe that works for them, but I must say I'm impressed with the quality of Adidas' product.
If you are in the market for a new pair of shoes, get them fitted properly at a running store. It makes such a huge difference. I wish I'd appreciated the difference sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Large and In Charge Great shoes for a big guy!
This is my second pair of Supernova Glides. The construction of these shoes outperforms any other shoe I have ever owned. When I bought my first pair, my shin splints, knee and foot pain disappeared. With my newest pair, the pain has stayed away. My gate improved because my body was no longer compensating for aches and pain. I will never buy another brand of shoe as long as these are around. I've tried many brands of shoes which never lasted and did not supply near the comfort as these. Adidas has earned my business for life at this point. Money well spent.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JoeKick Different and Worse from Previous Models
This shoe is totally different from the previous Supernova models. It sits lower on your ankle and the tongue is shorter. The earlier models were my favorite shoes I had for five years.
I returned these after two days because of the pain my feet experienced. If you are an early model Supernova wearer, do not get these.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Marin108 Excellent!
This are my first serious running shoes and I must say I am very impressed. Light, great built quality, very good fit for my foot, feels like running on air cushion, but what impressed me most is the performance on hard surface like concrete, absolutely no problem there, feels soft and secure.
I see that people here give bad review because it doesn't fit them well, but in my opinion it is not the design fault but rather depends on how your foot is shaped.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Rajat Not the fit I was expecting
I am a big fan of my previous shoe - Gilde 2 and decided to upgrade. Coming from a 11.5 size previously, I ordered it online only to find out the size was bit loose for me. Adidas was kind enough to send a 11 with no shipping charges, the size was ok but it was nowhere near as comfortable like Glide 2. I chose to return it back, this time paying for the shipping. I am not sure what is wrong but disappointed for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ossieosborn Super better than 4
Having had cushion concerns with the Glide 4, I was very pleased to feel the comfort has returned to this shoe. I am a heavy individual with some 238 pds to carry over a 1:55, half marathon, I need a good shoe...........this one looks to continue the tradition. Great job adidas â I canât help but believe you listened to the users and returned back to the old feel shoe from Glide 3 and 2.
