THEY SAY: "Suddenly, comfort becomes your secret weapon. The adidas men’s Supernova Glide 2 features a cool air mesh upper and ground-adapting FORMOTION™. With its men’s-specific fit and a more stable heel, you can hit the ground running." – Adidas.
WE SAY: This is a great all-round shoe for training up to marathons. The extra cushioning on the heel makes it good for heel strikers and heavier runners. Even though it feels heavier than other running shoes (it weighs 326g), the weight is well-distributed throughout the shoe which makes the extra weight more or less unnoticeable. However, do note that the weight difference becomes more obvious on longer runs.
The fit and support is excellent for this shoe, definitely a good choice for running the full marathon in.
Fit/Comfort: 8.5/10 — It fits like a glove and provides support for those high-impact runners.
Cushioning: 7.5/10 — The cushioning is adequate and can handle high impact heel-strikers.
Stability: 7.5/10 — The additional weight of the shoes makes it slightly uncomfortable to run in on longer runs.
Design/Aesthetics: 8.75/10 — The shoes look decent and can go well with most outfits.
Recommended Retail Price: $172
Availability: Available at Adidas outlets.
