Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

I bought these shoes after having a great experience with the Adistar Control. This shoe was a disappointment for me- there was notably less cushioning and a less responsive ride compared to the Control 5.

Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

I am 5'8" 155lbs and purchased these shoes to train for my first marathon after my Saucony Guides weren't giving me enough cushion on my longer runs (10-15 miles). Once broken in, these shoes provided a good amount of cushioning and are comfortable on both short and long runs. Two things to point out, though: The heel curves in significantly at the top on these shoes, which prevents me from wearing short socks without getting blisters. Also, I feel like there isn't enough cushion in the toe area. These may not be true for other runners, however.
What did bug me is that after only using these shoes for 20 miles, the separate outer heel piece on one of the shoes started making a noise every time I stepped, like it was tearing away from the rest of the sole or expelling air. It's not an issue when running, but it's pretty embarrassing to have your shoes always making a farting noise with every step. IMO, these shoes are too expensive to have QA issues like this.

Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

Adidas really got this shoe right! I took off on a 12 mile run right out of the box and it was by far the best feeling shoe I have run in since the Control 4's. I tried the 5's and the new Nike stabilizer but no luck. The Salvation was tremendous. I am a 49 yr old, 5'10, 185 lb. runner. Currently in marathon training mode and now relieved to know I have a new partner in the Salvation.

      Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

      LOVE this shoe, new to running, bad knees, flat feet and this shoes corrects it all. I can run farther with less after effect. Not getting any younger and with my workout routines it feels that way more and more everyday. This shoe made the difference for me. The shoe gets me tracking straight, takes the impact off my joints and helps me stretch my workouts out. going to order a few more pairs just in case adidas decides to discontinue this model.

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

      I have been looking for a replacement for the New Balance 1220 for a long time. These Adidas seem to have a very similar fit (I have a larger toe box), and they have better cushioning and better ventilation than the NB 1220. I needed a little extra heal lift, so I took an old insole from another running shoe and cut out the heal and placed it into this Adidas shoe, and it seems to have done the trick. I am 6', 175, and run about 30 miles a week.

      By Scott in Spain

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

      Surprisingly good. I had written off Adidas a while ago, but decided to try these after getting them on sale. Excellent cushioning and very smooth in transition. No issues with the upper and haven't felt so much as a hot spot. As with most running shoes, I would recommend replacing insoles, but aside from that, very pleased with these. The only thing left to determine about this shoe is durability- which could easily make this a 5 star shoe.
      Road Runner recommends sizing these up by a half. I found the size 11 a bit too splashy and loose feeling. 10.5, which is my normal size, fit perfectly.

      Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

      I ordered this shoe thinking it was the follow-on from the Adistar that I used to buy. This shoe is nothing like the old Adistar.
      Shoe laces are like grease, you have to double knot the shoe to walk. Inserts are terrible, get new ones before you use this shoe. And even after all that, my foot hurts all over after I run in it.
      I have been running for 20 years. Interesting enough, I swore by the old Adistar and had ordered it many times in a row - NEVER had a problem at all. NEVER had foot pain.
      Terrible shoe

      I've run in the Adistar control for a while...being 6'0" & 215, I need a stable shoe that doesn't feel like wearing a brick...this show does it for me...comfortable & stable, but it feels light. With superfeet inserts, it's been the best I've worn in a long while.

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

      I Love this shoe. Went to it from the Control 10 b/c the Sequence sucks and I've been very happy. Its so cushioned that running on the roads felt like running on trails for the first 3 weeks. The only problem I've had with them at all is a seam on the inside that rubs a little and gave me a blister, but even that went away once the shoes broke in a little. Other than that no problems and I was able to run in them comfortably right out of the box.
      I'm 6'1" and about 180 lbs, run about 40 mls per week on mostly paved roads, and have very flat feet. Usually shoes w/ this much stability cause me some problems w/ my feet, but these have been nothing but awesome. Highly recommend them.

      I'm 6'3" 230 lbs I first tried the shoe on and felt great nice cushion. I did 4 4 mile runs on the tread mill for the break in period and then went to do a 14 miler and developed blisters on both arches. To bad I really wanted this shoe too work it felt so good until the blisters it was almost there.

      Comments about Mens adidas adiStar Salvation Running Shoe:

      these shoes are simply amazing. it seems that the asymmetry in my stride is corrected by the response in the heel and midfoot. i had ITB syndrome for 2 years and got the adistar control 5 which corrected that, but they were too robust and i got shin splints. now, the salvation has taken care of my itbs and splints. softer heel than the control 5, pretty wide for a normal width, great stability and and smooth stride. 5 stars!

      This show is excellent for people with orthotics. The heel counter allows the orthotic to fit snug to the back of the shoe without riding forward at all. This replaces my LONG relationship with the Asics 2100 series. I hope future models can keep up with this one.
