Nicely priced, soft ride, works for me

By Foyt

from San Diego

Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 2 Running Shoe:

Nicely priced. I'm 195lbs male and bought these shoes to replace a high end Brooks. Gained a little weight from body building and I wanted to try something a little softer to see if it helped with some shin pain. Seemes to work. They are heavy shoes, and also there is a sticker in the insert that you need to peel off or the foot slips around a bit. Also these seem to fit a bit narrow, although I loosened the laces and that correct it. I'll buy them again, and at [$] a pair I'm happy.

        Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 2 Running Shoe:

        Used to love the Supernova Cushion until adidas narrowed the platform so much that it became unwearable. This version, with the wider platform. is terrific. I'm a pounder (185lbs, last run 10 miles at a 7:15 pace) with high arches, but these are holding up well. First shoe in a while I don't need an orthotic. Soft without being mushy. Its firm, so some may not like the heel toe transition which makes it run like a heavier shoe.

          Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 2 Running Shoe:

          I've been running in the Glide 2 for three weeks now, and I really like it. I'm 5'9", 150 lbs and I haven't had any problems. It breathes pretty well and really feels tailored to my foot. Also, this is my 4th version of the Supernova series and it might be the best I've worn. The only thing I'd mention is, I've seen that there's a note to buy this shoe a half size up, but I feel like it fits true to size, at least for me anyway.

          These shoes offer great cushioning for long runs. This shoe fits much better than the original "Glide" did due to Adidas cleaning up the toebox fit.

                Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 2 Running Shoe:

                These shoes are awesome for endurance running. I've used Adidas since I can remember, as the brand has always seemed to fit my foot shape perfectly. These specific models are outstanding--I've always found the Supernova line to be superb, but the value for the buck in this case cannot be beaten. I haven't run a marathon in them, but I have ran up to 10 miles in them, and have absolutely nothing negative to say. I run on asphault, concrete, and treadmills. The shoes remain comfortable, breathable, and feel very light.

                I liked them so much that I bought FOUR pairs for this year, and ANOTHER four for next year! No, I'm not crazy, I just take my running VERY seriously. That, and I know when I find a good product at a good price!

                  This is a great shoe for long distance training. It has great cushioning at the heel, mid-foot, and front. So if you are a heel-striker or mid-foot striker, and looking for cushioning these shoes will work for you.

                  After runs of 13 miles plus, I can really feel the difference between these and my Saucony Pro Grids. My legs are less tired and noticed my ankles are not as sore. There is a minor (20 miles) break-in period for these shoes, after this break-in, the movement from heel to toe becomes much faster and more natural.

                  No one's mentioned this before, and maybe it's just me, but I've noticed a very small, coiled bounce near the arches which aids my transition from mid to forefront. Again, I notice this when I switch back to my Saucony's.

                  I have run with the previous model of the SuperNova Glides and got 300 miles on those shoes, hopefully I will get that much again!

                      I bought these for half marathon training and they've been great so far. I've worn them for my long runs and the comfort is as good on the last mile as it is on the first. I'm 6'1", 220 lbs. and would recommend these shoes to larger runners. About the only negative thing so far is the white color shows a little dirt, but otherwise these shoes have been fantastic.

                            I run 5 times weekly and rotate two pairs of these. I am 5-10 and weigh 190 lbs. Shoes do not last over 200 miles for me. This shoe lasts at least that for me.
                            I am training for my 3rd marathon. These feel great while I am running.

                              I like the glide 2 better than the first glide and almost as much as any of the Supernova Cushion Series that the glide replaced. This shoe is great for long runs because it has awesome cushioning. I've also worn it on tempos and track workouts and ran fast in it too. I like the full forefoot adiprene that the first glide didn't have. Breaths well and the tongues stay in place better than in the orginal glide but they still slide some. I really like the upper and lacing better in this one than the first glide.

                                Shoe didn't fit me well. The heel tabs hit too high on my achilles. Towards the end of long runs, the sock liners would bunch up and ride forward.

                                I had also tried the previous generation SuperNova and it didn't work for me either. I wear almost exclusively adidas, but this is just not my model. For your reference, I tend to favor the lighter weight trainers like the Adizero CS, Tempo, etc. so this may just have been too much shoe for my taste.

                                I've been running in the Glide 2 for three weeks now, and I really like it. I'm 5'9", 150 lbs and I haven't had any problems. It breathes pretty well and really feels tailored to my foot. Also, this is my 4th version of the Supernova series and it might be the best I've worn. The only thing I'd mention is, I've seen that there's a note to buy this shoe a half size up, but I feel like it fits true to size, at least for me anyway.

                                this is a good shoe, but has a few flaws. i didnt like the segmented heel or the cushioning that adidas. the shoe also is not as flexable as i thought it would be. all in all, the shoe is a keper for me and i would give it a 4.5/5
