    Comments about Mens adidas adiZero Mana Racing Shoe:

    I previously ran in motion-control Saucony, but I found that they aggravated my feet (plantar fasciitis that required surgery). After reading about the barefoot/minimalist movement, I thought I would give this pair a try. I absolutely love them. I ran a PR in Portland Marathon in them. They feel fast, light, as if I'm gliding. Because they are light, running in the rain isn't as much of a problem either, because it doesn't feel like you are carrying cement blocks on your feet.

    One word of warning, this shoe is not for a heavy heel-striker. I've done a lot of work to change my stride from a heel-strike to a mid-foot strike (which caused the plantar fasciitis in the first place) Because of that work, I've maintained my health - even while running a PR marathon - while running in these minimalist shoes. I don't think heel-strikers will find the same fate.

    For what it's worth, I love the insane blue color, too. Kinda makes me feel like only a professional racer could get away with wearing something as flamboyant as this shoe...it's fun to pretend.

    Great running shoes

    By MG

    from Qc, Canada

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens adidas adiZero Mana Racing Shoe:

    Those shoes are great. Good construction and the upper is very solid. They are a bit long so there is enough place for the toes. Just ran a half marathon and made a PR.
    I think those are great shoes for the long distance.
    Downside is that the forefoot wears quickly. I am a frontfoot/midfoot 170 lbs runner and after 150 km, I would say that the outsole is 30-40% wore so 400-500 km is the max I would get out of these shoes.
    Overall, I would buy again

      Recently ran a half marathon in these and quite pleased. No hot spots for the entire race and had just enough cushioning. They'd definitely be good for a full marathon too. I would've given them a full 5 stars but they do tend to run on the small size so definitely size up about half a size.

      Just ran my second fastest marathon in these. Very comfortable with good support. No foot complaints at all. Slightly heavier than some other choices out there but a great shoe for 1/2 marathon to marathon. Would go lighter for 5K - 10K. Highly recommended!!

      As a 160lb competitive runner I find this shoe to be a very fast,versatile,very supportive,and also well priced for a light weight racer. I highly recommend this shoe for tempo running,speedwork,and races from 10k up to the Marathon.

        Comments about Mens adidas adiZero Mana Racing Shoe:

        I began using the Manas as my marathon shoe, but loved them so much I now use them for everything short of some track workouts in spikes. It is rare to find a shoe that is fantastic for 800m intervals and 26 miles. These shoes respond well to any and all conditions, keep you in a natural position and allow you just the right freedom of movement. The only downside would be that they are not meant to go 400 miles, so you'll be replacing them often. I have found that they seem to max out around 200-250.

        This is a good shoe for pronators like me who want a lighter shoe for speedwork and racing. My orthotics fit into the shoe well, and there is enough stability to keep pronation under control.
        The fit is snug, more than I'm used to, but about right for a lightweight racing shoe.

          I usually do not do train in flats, but I just can't get enough of running intervals or doing speedwork with the Manas on my wide feet. I recommend the shoes for track or road speed workouts in dry and wet conditions. If you run in wet conditions, make sure to lace the shoes all the way to the top or your socks may slip down. I look forward to doing my first 5K in over a year in a pair of Manas.

          Comments about Mens adidas adiZero Mana Racing Shoe:

          I'm a slacker who occasionally trains hard for spring 10-milers/half marathons. My usual shoe is the cushy Adidas Supernova Sequence, 12.5. I was looking for some raceday shoes for a recent 10-miler and picked these up. I crushed my goal pace-- certainly wasn't just the shoes, but they helped.

          Overall feel: Light, breathable and responsive, but noticeable less arch support than the Supernovas (this was to be expected). This is my first pair of "minimal" shoes so take it for what it's worth, but I really liked the roadfeel. Day-glo yellow makes you faster.

          Fit: My only real knock against these. Adidas usually fit me perfectly, but these have a noticeable more pointy, narrow toebox, so they had a bit more discomfort during break-in. Other than that, they have the normal fit of adidas for me-- I wear 12 for most other brands but 12.5 in adidas.

            I switched from competitive cycling to trail running and now triathlon (mainly XTerra) and struggled to find a shoe for the road. I have long been an Adidas fan, but their road shoes, like many, are way too over built. Not this shoe! I am not a high mileage runner, but I'm pretty fast and this shoe is great for training and racing. Rarely get a blister and durable.

            good shoe for an elite light striker runner, basically a great road training shoe.
            low mileage soles
            shoe does not need to be 1/2 size bigger,
            but all of your products asks to get lagger size, maybe good marketing!

            Overall I really like this shoe. Its lightweight and fits well, although a little narrow for my wide feet - I really had to loosen the laces quite a bit. I often run without socks (and with these I almost need to because of the width) and these are just a little rough on the inside. I don't think I'd choose these to do anything over a 10k or so. Other than the narrowness and slight rough feel I've got no additional criticisms.

                Finally, a lightweight shoe that fits well (i.e. not too narrow) and is relatively inexpensive. I bought the same size as the Asics 11** series that I've been running in for years and it was perfect. Use them for everyday training and races, very happy with them!
                Also, just bought a pair for my wife and she loves them too.

                    I have enjoyed this shoe. It still has some support but is simplified.

                    As a 160lb competitive runner I find this shoe to be a very fast,versatile,very supportive,and also well priced for a light weight racer. I highly recommend this shoe for tempo running,speedwork,and races from 10k up to the Marathon.
