So its common knowledge that you don’t really have to be a runner (or a rocket scientist) to know that everyone these days is looking for the most comfy shoe on the market. When it comes to running, or training in general, we need our equipment and gear to be our training partner and make our training as pleasant as possible. After all we spend the whole day schlepping from the one meeting to the next (predominantly in heels from hell) we don’t need to go to gym in uncomfortable shoes as well.

Recently I took the Climacool Fresh 2.0 Running shoe for a little test run and I must say they took off, literally, from the word go.

We bonded, and when I say bonded they fit like an absolute dream. Almost like they were a part of your foot. At a mere 184g (I think a slimslab weighs more than that) you hardly notice them there. They have a wonderful minimal design (less is always more for me when it comes to trainers) and no bulky heel clipping when I run with a relaxed pace. The ClimaCool range (which is a registired trademark and I will be covering more items in the range) provides a 360-degree cooling for the entire foot, if you count in Jacob Zuma numbers that’s a two hundred and fourty nine milthousand (just kidding) – But the point is a lot of cooling going on and your feet feel fresh even whilst you are dying up there. The material is 100% breathable mesh which wraps your foot in a snug hug which is very non-constictive. A few other highlights include.

  • Breathable mesh upper and color-blocked heel
  • Insole board membrane keeps water from entering through outsole holes
  • Full-length ADIPRENE® for comfort and superior cushioning at impact

My overall verdict is that its a very nice running shoe. Value for money and looks oh so slick!  Follow Adidas for more product updates on @AdidasZA
