Adidas Adipure Adapt 2 review

I've had a pair of Adidas Adipure Adapt 2 shoes for a couple of months now and they instantly became my everyday regular running shoes.

Zero drop, light weight and minimal, they're pretty much perfect. The neoprene(?) uppers slip on easily and are the first shoes I've ever had that didn't rub in the slightest. I wear all my running shoes without socks & the first day I wore them I ran 25km (in 2 sessions) without a single bit of skin feeling anything at all.

The upper is a bit thicker than the Hattoris, so I suspect they'll be a little sweatier when the weather warms up, but they're not smelling too bad so far and wash easily.

The sole, like the Saucony Hattoris, is much more robust than it appears. No noticeable wear after 500km.

I liked them so much I bought a second pair pretty much straight away. Saucony had ceased production of the Hattoris by the time I'd done 2200km and started to wear them out, so I didn't want that to happen again!

And, they're nice and cheap too. I can't recommend them highly enough.
