This Adidas's lightweight racing shoe is a favourite among interval session lovers and speedy racers. It's a low to ground, snappy and responsive ride that is more of a traditional racing shoe compared with high cushioning racing counterparts like the Next% or Carbon X.
The Adios 5 features the new LightStrike midsole compound extending through to the forefoot of the shoe and layed ontop of the Boost heel. Adidas have also redesigned their torsion system, which makes the shoe slightly more rigid in midfoot region, but in a way which gives the shoe a pop (if you like a more rigid feeling sole). The torsion system primarily makes the shoe more stable (as a neutral shoe), which is useful for those who need a stable platform when racing.
Adidas have also made version 5 of the adios a little bit more roomy in the toebox and have redesigned the upper and inside coating of the shoe (like the tongue). Ensuring a breathable and secure upper.
