?Adidas Adios 2 Top-----The Adios [/img][/url] is not without its downsides however. The interior is scratchy and not suitable for sockless running, which is not a deal breaker, but given some of the great uppers out there nowadays I find it surprising when a shoe pays seemingly little attention to interior feel. My bigger issue with the Adios is that the toebox is too tapered at the front. The width is fine at the ball of my forefoot, but from that point forward the shoe tapers to a very distinct point, which causes considerable toe scrunching, particularly the little toe. Going up a half size might help with this, but I much prefer the forefoot shape of the Hagio to that of the Adios (I do feel like the Adios runs about a half size smaller than the Hagio, which might be part of the problem). If there is one single factor that would keep the Adios out of my regular rotation, the tapered toebox would be it (a bit surprising to me as I thought the heel would be the problem).

The other thing I really like about the Gazelle sole is that itâ??s flexible longitudinally, from side to side, and torsionally â?? it moves really well with the foot and provides a really smooth transition from lateral to medial in a midfoot-forefoot landing. I expect that sole durability will be quite good given the amount of rubber present for such a light shoe â?? the lateral forefoot is well protected, as is the heel (that white patch on the heel is actually rubber) which should help light heel strikers and those who Vente Adidas Tech Super Homme plan to walk around in the shoes (you be hard pressed not to wear them all day â?? they are that ridiculously comfortable).

As I mentioned above, the sole of the Gazelle feels very similar to that of the Adapt. Sole dimensions listed on Running Warehouse are 17mm heel, 11mm forefoot, and overall shoe weight for my size 10 is about 6oz (measured on my scale).The sole feels incredibly good on the run â?? perfect softness for my taste, and it feels much less than 6mm drop. Iâ??ve come to realize that the same drop in two shoes can feel very different depending on stack height, firmness, and so forth (a post on this coming soon I hope), and this one hits my sweet spot.

I really didnâ??t anticipate putting a lot of miles on the Adios. I suspected Iâ??d wear it a few times, decide that I didnâ??t like it, and write a review saying as much. However, Iâ??ve wound up running in the shoe quite a bit more than I expected(probably around 50 miles now), and am rather surprised by how it has performed.

Adharanand Finn, Running With the Kenyans-Several months ago I was contacted by a rep from Adidas inquiring if Iâ??d be interested in reviewing a few pairs of shoes from their Adizero line. At the time, I suggested that the adidas Hagio seemed to be my kind of shoe (and it has turned out to be just that â?? see adidas Hagio review here), but they offered to send along a pair of the Adios 2 as well (disclosure: this shoe was a review sample provided free of charge by the manufacturer). I was really hesitant to agree to trying the Adios as it has a higher heel-forefoot differential than I typically run in (9mm drop â?? 24mm heel, 15mm forefoot according to Running Warehouse), but I was persuaded by the folks at adidas to give it a go. After all, it is the racin Adidas ZX 700 Homme France g shoe worn by many of the elite African marathoners, so it couldnâ??t hurt to at least try the shoe worn by major marathon winners and World Record setters.

If I were adidas, Iâ??d add some stripes and laces to the Adapt for round two, or at least a more pleasing design on the upper along with a lower price tag. But, nobody would have predicted that the Vibram Fivefingers would have been such a hit, so maybe my personal concerns are unwarranted. However, if I were a betting man, Iâ??d be Adidas ZX 750 Homme Vente t the market for the adidas Adapt will be very small.
