The 10 best adidas running shoes
Introducing the ten best adidas running shoes is very complicated to start. It is, because on the one hand there is a huge offer of models of technical range with the latest and the best of adidas, and on the other hand, because it is difficult to preponderate some over others, since there are many factors to take into account. Almost one for each model ...
But, in the end, it is not so difficult if you buy these adidas running shoes you add these other questions: What are the most demanded? Which ones are the most valid for all kinds of circumstances? What are the most appreciated by the runner community at a general level? And the more questions of this type you do, the more you close the circle to stay with fewer and fewer models.
In this relationship of the best adidas running shoes will be one of the most spectacularly profiled shoes such as adidas Adizero Takumi Ren? Well, no. It will not be because, despite being a delicatessen, it is not suitable for everyone. What's more, if a "trial" of shoes were called and all the participants used it to run, say 10 or 15km, many the next day they could not move about how the twins would (and, even so, it would not be the shoes' fault , no ... but for what models you have to be well seasoned to get the best performance).
Not because in the classification of "better" come many subjective values and we are going to take into account, not only the quality, but the usefulness of the shoes. In short, we will treat as the best adidas running shoes those that show it to the vast majority of runners and runners who every day go out to give wax to the asphalt to improve.
Ultraboost 19 is a daily training shoe, polyvalent but much more rolling than previous versions. The fact that now has more Boost and that the base of the shoe is wider, makes the range of brokers and brokers that can use it increase. So runners of all kinds, even something of weight (not exaggerated) will be able to use it without problems. At slow and somewhat cheerful rhythms, it is perfect to be comfortable, cushioned and protected. If you accelerate, it also responds, but, like many daily training shoes, it is not meant for the fastest rhythms. For this it is already a matter of using mixed shoes, or even competition shoes.
This Ultraboost 19 has not retired from its predecessor, as evidenced by the adidas Ultraboost Game of Thrones collection, the success of this HBO® series and where there are various finishes depending on the "houses" that star the plot. They are not the only ones, the Ultraboost saga is extensive, as shown by models such as the classic Ultraboost, Ultraboost Parley, Ultraboost All Terrain, Ultraboost Laceless or Ultraboost Uncaged. Ultraboost 19 weighs 310gr of weight in the finish of men and 268gr in that of women, while the drop is 10mm. The official price is 179.95 €. (See discounts).
The adidas mixed shoes par excellence, adizero Boston, in its latest installment is shown with a midsole made in Boost. This material provides this agile shoe the cushioning and rebound with return of energy, which is so appreciated for a mixed shoe that can be worn in any competition, especially medium and long distance if you have a low or medium weight. The height of the midsole is 29mm in the heel and 19mm in the forefoot, for a drop of 10mm. Inside there is a Torsion System unit to facilitate the rotation of the ankle during the tread.
The sole is manufactured by Continental ™ and is Stretchweb type, very flexible and adaptable to the ground, providing a plus of softness. Above we find that the upper is built with Microfit, a type of very light and breathable mesh that closes on the foot with a very good fit. The weight is quite low: 244gr in the man's finish and 202gr in the women's finish. The adidas Adizero Boston price is € 139.95 (SEE DEALS).
SOLARBOOST 19 AND SOLARBOOST ST
Solarboost 19 it sharpens even more in the extraordinary upper that has differentiated it from the other shoes. Thanks to inspiration from how NASA optimizes its creations to the maximum, adidas develops an upper that does not leave any millimeter without a specific job. So he has used in his creation the ARAMIS system with which to analyze all aspects of the footprint in thousands and thousands of photographs per second of that movement. The result is an upper with a modular construction that uses fibers according to a pattern made by computer with an exact precision of how each point of the mesh will work and that does not allow for the use of excess material.
The midsole is made with Boost, a compound capable of working in very wide temperature ranges and provide cushioning with a high degree of energy return when running. Inside there is a piece called Rail propulsion that helps to stabilize the tread, is built in EVA but does not intervene directly in the cushioning. The height of the midsole is 32mm in the heel and 22 in the forefoot (10mm drop). Underneath, the sole is Continental ™ Stretchweb type, a material that grabs both dry and wet. The official price of adidas Solarboost 19 is 159.95 € (SEE THE BEST OFFERS).
Solarboost ST it is the equivalent of adidas Solarboost but with stability control (ST = Stability). The Germans also use the ARAMIS technology here, with thousands of photographs per second of the movement of the foot when running, to obtain an exceptional upper. This is what adidas calls TFP, or Tailored Fibre Placement. On the back, Fitcounter, a visible buttress, will help stabilize the foot at the moment of touching the ground when running.
In the midsole we find a Boost with reinforcements of higher density under the arch to continue obtaining a cushioning with high rebound, but that this is stable. The drop is 10mm based on heights of 32mm in the heel and 22 in the forefoot. As in Solar Boost, Propulsion Rail is used for greater stability in the footstep and when launching the stride. On the bottom, in contact with the ground, we find Continental ™ Stretchweb rubber, more flexible and that allows more to adapt the footprint to the ground. The weight is 314gr in the men's finish and 278gr in the women's finish. The official price of adidas Solarboost ST is € 159.95.
Pulseboost HD arrives as one of the latest adidas novelties and if it falls into this classification it is largely due to the use of the new Boost HD composite of the midsole, with properties that improve, even more, what has existed up to now. It has a profile designed to run mainly in urban environments, with hard surfaces such as asphalt or sidewalks. That's where the midsole built with high density Boost material will work to provide both cushioning and energy return and stably. The height of the midsole is 18mm in the heel and 10mm under the metatarsals, which gives a drop of 8mm.
On the bottom, in the sole, we find Continental ™ rubber for a good grip and durability. It uses Adaptive Traxion technology precisely focused on hard surface environments, as is usual in cities. Above, the upper uses Adapt Knit, a mesh made in point, with perforations to breathe better and provide adjustment to the foot in all phases of the tread. As details, it should be noted that the coordinates of three major cities such as Paris, London and NY are inserted in the tab, but above all, a QR code to focus directly on the mobile and receive information about the adidas runners community and recommended routes. , among others. The weight is 340gr, while the official adidas Pulseboost price is € 139.95 (check the best offers).
The fourth installment of the Adidas adios Adios competition shoe keeps key elements in its success, such as the midsole built with Boost. Repeat with 80% Boost and 20% EVA matching the top most in contact with the foot. The height is 27mm and 17mm (heel-metatarsal) so the drop is 10mm. The sole is the same as Adizero Adios 3, therefore, it is a rubber produced by Continental ™, the German giant tire manufacturer, serving the top models of his compatriot adidas. Through the sole we see Torsion System, the one in charge of stabilizing the rotation of the ankle during the tread.
The most important change is found in the upper. And although the first may seem very similar, adidas already warns that it fits so much that it is better to take half a number more than the usual one. The reduction of leather material is very noticeable and therefore the mesh surface increases, improving breathability. The three bars have a less forceful function than in the previous delivery, not down to the base of the shoe. The weight is maintained in the 226gr of the man's finish and the 186 of the woman's. The price of adidas Adizero Adios 4 is 149.95 € (see offers).
adidas Pureboost is a sneaker oriented to "Natural Running" and dedicated to daily training. There are several adidas shoes that orbit near it, as we explained in adidas urban running shoes. The concept of Pureboost is based on providing space for all types of footprints, although initially it must be said that it has a neutral shoe structure, but that it allows the mobility and natural flexibility of the foot. The weight of adidas Pureboost is 258gr.
The upper cut is characterized by using a Circular Knit mesh, in one piece. This mesh is hugged to the foot in a very effective way thanks to the use of the ARAMIS system in its design. In the midsole, Boost stands out as a cushioning material. It is present in many of the high-end shoes thanks to its cushioning and its high energy return capacity when running. The height of the midsole is 26mm in the heel and 18mm in the forefoot, which gives 8mm of drop. The sole is constructed with Stretchweb the elastic compound of the German brand Continetal®. Stretchweb allows good traction on all types of surfaces, even wet. The official price of adidas Pureboost is € 139.95 (see Offers).
SOLAR GLIDE 19 AND SOLAR GLIDE ST 19
Solar Glide 19 is the first adidas Solar Glide review (shoe that debuted last year). At the same time, it replaced a whole adidas flagship, such as Supernova Glide, or Supernova, in its last stage. And if the pavilion was high, with the waste of technology used in its manufacture, it has only improved. From the start, it is now lighter, thanks to its 286gr in the man's finish and the 240gr in the women's, very good start for a daily training shoe.
Solar Glide 19 is a high-end sneaker made from a midsole based on the Boost compound that has heights of 32mm in the heel and 22mm in the forefoot, giving a drop of 10mm. This midsole incorporates Energy Rail that allows, despite being a shoe for neutral tread, better control stability. Another element is Torsion System, responsible for facilitating the control of the rotation of the ankle. Underneath, the rubber used is Continental ™ and is of the Stretchweb type, very flexible and adaptable to the ground for a better grip. Above, the mesh is light and breathable and uses thermosealed reinforcements. From behind, we find Fitcounter in the heel to improve the stability of the ankle. The official price of adidas Solar Glide 19 is € 139.95 (see offer)
Solar Glide 19 ST It is a shoe with the same general characteristics as Solar Glide 19, (that is, a daily training model, but also usable in long distance races if you do not intend to go all the way, or if the distance to travel is longer than short) but this time focused on runners and runners with excessive pronation in the tread. In fact that "ST" is equivalent to "Stability", within the jargon of adidas. Here the weight goes up a few grams to 302 in the male model and 278 in the female, which is not bad, either.
Solar Glide 19 ST maintains a drop of 10mm based on heights of 32 / 22mm in a midsole built in Boost and that reserves a reinforced part, just under the arch. In fact, both outside and inside there is a reinforcement that runs both sides to guide the tread, but especially under the arch, where Boost has a higher density to contain the overpronation and is aided by the Torsion piece to help in the rotation of the ankle. On the bottom, the sole is also Continental ™ Stretchweb, with great grip, flexibility and adaptability. The mesh, lightweight and breathable, is reinforced with heat-sealed elements to prevent seams, while Fitcounter will hold the ankle at the back when it hits the ground. This area is crowned with a strip that will help to fit the shoe better. The official price of Solar Glide 19 ST is € 139.95 (See Offers).
SOLAR DRIVE 19
Solar Drive 19 happens to be one of the most "basic" models of the Solar family, and even so it enters into the relationship of the best ones (which gives an idea of how high the Solar family sets the bar). And he does thanks to details like using Boost in the midsole, since this cushioned material and with a high degree of energy return gives it more value, although its price is lower than that of others.
The drop is 10mm, in a high midsole 30mm high in the heel, by 20mm in the forefoot. Here it does not incorporate the Torsion System, easily verifiable if you turn the shoe, although it does Propulsion Rail, a system that helps guide the tread. Already on the sole, say that it is built with the same pattern as other Solar shoes, butthis time with Adiwear material instead of Continental's Stretchweb™. The mesh is breathable and lightweight and uses the three adidas bands to reinforce both sides of the shoe. At the top it is crowned by flat cords passed through up to six eyelets, leaving a seventh free for further tightening if required. Behind, a buttress will hold the ankle, but releasing pressure from the Achilles area. The weight is 318gr in the finish for men and 278gr in that for women. The official price of Solar Drive 19 is € 119.95.
If someone rips their clothes to see adidas Duramo 9 included in this relationship (due to its lower technical level compared to other models of the German brand) we could give the reason ... but if we say that its price barely exceeds € 50 then, just for the price-quality ratio, its inclusion is more than justified. Such is the success of this versatile shoe that is already in the ninth installment, something unusual in medium and low ranges, where in almost all brands the news only last some season. The weight is only 294gr in the man's finish and 239gr in the woman's.
Duramo 9 is a shoe for neutral tread with enough flexibility. In his midsole he uses the Cloudfoam compound. It takes care of the cushioning, and while it does not have the properties of a Boost or its durability, during its useful life it performs its function.
The height of the midsole is 23.5mm in the heel and 14mm in the forefoot, which gives a drop of 9.5mm. Underneath it uses a sole made with Adiwear rubber, using Waffle tacking with a profusion of flex grooves. In the center there is a gap that can be reminiscent of the one used by Torsion System, but here its function is only to subtract some grammes from the total weight of the shoe. Above, the upper is characterized by being constructed in one piece, with thermosealed reinforcements to prevent seams. A curious detail is the inclusion of two parallel rows of buttonholes so that whoever uses them has more options to close the loop. See Offers.
adidas Adizero Tempo 9 is a mixed shoe but with Stability control, one of the few in its profile to offer this stability control. Companion of those who have problems with overpronation, but who do not renounce a nervous shoe on their feet either to make series or directly in competition. Adidas Adizero Boston companion (the latter for neutral tread) is indicated to work the speed in a stable way, from the point of view of the tread.
The midsole is built with Boost, cushioned and with high energy return but with a higher density reinforcement in the inner midfoot area, precisely to fight against the excess of pronation in the footprint.
The height is 29mm in the heel, while it is 19mm in the area under the metatarsals, which gives a 10mm drop. Between the midsole and the sole we can see the Torsion system to help in the rotation of the ankle. It is much more advanced than in any other adidas shoe, but because the entrance is expected to be more than half a foot, rather than a heel. The sole, by the way, is made with Stretchweb rubber from the Continental ™ brand. Above, a MicroFit technical mesh ensures lightweight breathability and incorporates reinforcement strips in the outer area of the metatarsals to ensure greater durability of the fabric. The weight is 278gr in the man's finish and 230gr in the woman's. The official adidas Adizero Tempo price is € 139.95 (see offers).
