These adidas Running Sneakers Are Super Weird, Aren’t They?
If you’re a casual runner, you’re probably not a part of the “barefoot” movement. The movement has gained a lot of momentum over the course of the last couple years. Basically, the thought of some hardcore runners is that running “barefoot” is the best way to run in terms of preventing foot and leg injuries and making the most out of your run. Those who subscribe to running “barefoot” say that it helps them to stay healthier than running with traditional sneakers. But, of course, they can’t actually run “barefoot” in most places; they need sneakers to replicate the “barefoot” experience for them. So, as a result, sneaker companies have bought into the movement and started creating sneakers built to make runners feel like they’re “barefoot.”
There are a few different companies, like Fila for example, who have already released “barefoot” sneakers. But, now, adidas is getting into the mix with their new adidas adiPure Adapt, which is a sneaker that is interesting, to say the least. It is featured in a bright blue color with hints and dark royal and red. It includes adidas’ patented TECHFIT upper and a PUREMOTION outsole. Both are designed to deliver comfort and support to runners as they go through their workouts. And, there’s not a whole lot to these sneakers, which makes them very light and breathable.
But, we have to ask: Is there any chance you’d rock a pair of these to the gym or to the park in order to get a run in? As we said in the title to this piece, these are super weird, right? We’re pretty sure we’re not going to be slipping our feet into them anytime soon. But, if you’re interested, the adiPure Adapt sneakers are available right now for 90 bucks. Let us know how you like them.
