The minimalist design of this shoe feels like you aren’t wearing anything at all with just a little extra push from the cushioned midsole and springy rubber outsole. Among the best running shoes in the line-up is the Adidas NEO Cloudfoam Running Shoe. Boasting sleek, lightweight uppers and a curving sole design, the shoe’s design guarantees to help you achieve top speed.

Another recent innovation is Energyrods, which appeared on the Adizero Adios Pro in 2020. This tech consists of five carbon-infused rods embedded in the midsole to line up with the metatarsal bones in the forefoot. Like the carbon fiber plates found in other brands’ shoes, the Energyrods help create a snappy, propulsive feel and increase running efficiency for sustained speed.

Do Adidas’ Cloudfoam Pure 2.0 womens running shoes feel like you’re striding on air? Well, they feature the Cloudfoam midsole and outsole, which provide a springy feeling and plush cushioning. There are also the memory foam sockliners plus the soft breathable uppers incorporating Primegreen, a high-performance fabric made from 50% recycled polyester and no virgin plastic. The Cloudfoam Pure 2.0’s outsole includes durable rubber and treads for dependable traction.

Having already mentioned the EVA midsole, these Adidas have a strong foundation for the padding in the rest of the sneaker. Inside the shoe, there is a slightly contoured insole that is also using an EVA compound. This insole is used on their Neo line as well, which have quickly become a favorite for all-day ease of distance between rome and venice wear. Adidas commitment to no pain goes even further, as the soft, fully connected upper doesn’t restrict or pinch the foot in any direction. Cool and cushioned, the final product will have you walking among the clouds. Brand name sneakers can cost exorbitant amounts just for their casual, less functional styles.

Now, you might be wondering – what exactly is it about the Cloudfoam design that has me sold? Well, there are a number of things but this complete review and guide should give you a better idea why they’ve got my two thumbs up. While the outsole is thin, flexible, and responsive, it isn’t as durable as some of the thicker outsoles out there on the market.
