WHAT ARE THE BEST ADIDAS RUNNING SHOES FOR ME?
Whether you have neutral pronation or you supinate (commonly referred to as underpronation), the best shoes for your run are lightweight with supportive cushioning. Try running shoes for men with Boost midsoles. Our most responsive cushioning ever, Boost absorbs impact and returns it at push-off to propel you forward. If you’re switching up surfaces, look for all-terrain Continental™ Rubber outsoles which work like winter tires for your feet, providing grip and traction in all conditions, flexing underfoot for an energized ride.
ADIdAS ARCHIVE: BOOST TECHNOLOGY
With adidas Boost, you get out what you put in. The quest to create the perfect midsole material took decades of research and development, eventually resulting in industry-altering—and performance-enhancing—technology. After countless trials and hundreds of iterations, Boost midsoles launched in 2013, setting a new sneaker standard. Boost delivers immediate energy return, propelling runners forward while providing peak comfort.
MORE BOOST DETAILS
Boost is constructed of small granular material (TPU) blown-up and turned into small energy capsules, which make up the distinctive midsole. With their unique cell structure, these springy energy capsules in your men’s running shoes store and unleash energy more efficiently in every step.
Frequently Asked Questions About Running Shoes
What is running shoe drop?
Running shoe drop is the difference between the height of the midsole beneath the heel and the forefoot under the ball of the foot. Lower drops will create a good midfoot strike, which can reduce impact compared to a heel strike, but will also require your Achilles tendon to work harder.
Should running shoes be flexible?
Flexibility is a crucial factor of running shoe fit as it allows the shoe materials to flex the same as your foot to provide support, cushioning and traction on various terrains. Flexibility is especially important in the front half of the shoe where more range of motion is needed, while the midsole and ankle areas provide more support and stability.
What should I wear for cross country running?
The best shoes for cross country running are designed to give you extra traction, speed and control while protecting your feet from uneven surfaces. These shoes are built with lightweight materials that still deliver stability and support while extra traction is provided by rubberized spikes.
