No tongue, so friction is reduced during runs. Strong ankle support. Comfortable enough for all-purpose walking or running.
Uppers require long break-in period. Some consumers report receiving fakes or knock-offs, so be sure you receive the real Adidas brand. Sizing can be challenging.
Classic design, can be casual or sport shoe. High quality leather upper. Wide range of colors available.
Arch support is lacking, unlike originals. Fit is true to size, but narrow. Beware of fakes and knock-offs.
Great energy return and "bounce". Well-ventilated, sockless running possible. Lightweight and ideal for treadmill running.
Does not repel water well (better on dry surfaces). Not ideal for cold weather conditions. Narrow fit in true size.
Exceptionally lightweight and comfortable, good spring. Works as a stylish casual shoe. Popular cardio work-out model.
Not as supportive in the arch or ankle as other models. Sole can become separated from upper. Wet weather can be problematic with treads.
