Horrible Blisters!

        Comments about Mens adidas supernova Sequence 5 Running Shoe:

        I wanted to try Adidas, and bought these Sequence V on a sale. After a couple of 8 km runs, and a longer 15 km run. Ended with bleeding blisters on both of my archs. Those were bad, took a couple of months to heal. Also feels loose on the back. Never again Adidas, I m running back to my comfy Brooks Adrenalines.

            Comments about Mens adidas supernova Sequence 5 Running Shoe:

            I like the wider toe area and the airy lighter fabric for hotter weather. This shoe feels nothing like the other Sequence models. The rear and especially the mid foot striking zones are very hollow. Also, my foot is not supported well by the side of shoe and the new lacing system. I feel I need a more stable shoe to protect my knees when running distances over 2 miles.

            Delivery was excellent as usual.

            Comments about Mens adidas supernova Sequence 5 Running Shoe:

            I was surprised by this shoe because I never ran in adidas before. I've used Asics, Saucony, Nike, and Brooks, but never considered this brand. I chose this shoe after comparing with the above-mentioned brands because the toebox fit me perfectly and the arch support was the best for a mild overpronator like myself.

            Like other reviewers, I found the heel to be a bit loose. This was easily corrected with a quick re-lace which helped to cinch in the heel. I would recommend these shoes for folks who find other brands to be too narrow.

              The changes to the gt-2170 caused some mid foot pain. I ran on the series for ten years. Looking for a new shoe, I tried the Adidas on a long shot. It paid off. I compared it to the new gt-2000. These definitely worked better for me.

              I have ran in the supernova sequence 4 and had great results. I ran through 2 pairs. Now they come out with the sequence 5 and the heel is extremely loose. Tried to tie them a couple different ways and still didn't feel good. Just not sure why they were changed... hate that. FYI I'm 6'4" and 200lbs in case that helps.

                First pair of Adidas that I have owned. Surprisingly light for a stability shoe. The toe box is wide, but it is very comfortable and does not feel loose. I was wary, especially after the other reviews, but I have been pleasantly surprised and glad that I gave them a try.

                  I've had many versions of the Sequence and I'm not happy with this one. Loved all the others. This one is now made for really heavy people I believe. The toe box is way bigger and the ankle area doesn't surround the ankle nicely.
                  I'm 165lbs 5'9" and this shoe isn't a good fit anymore.

                      I was a huge fan of the Supernova Sequence 3 and bought several pair when they reached the end of their lifecycle. Skipped the 4 altogether based on negative feedback from others. My last pair of 3's finally died and I need a fresh pair for my fall marathon and decided to give these a try......they didn't work. Toe box is noticeably wider than the 3's and the laces don't go down as far toward the toe so ability to tweak the fit is reduced, my foot slides all over the place. Although lighter than the 3's, the 5's also have less forefoot cushioning, a drawback in my opinion. On the positive side, I do like the changes they made in the heel structure.
