I used to have foot problems with my arches, and once I started wearing these shoes I noticed an immediate difference. Also, I did a lot of running through the water and then on land, so versatility was key.
This shoe really worked as it did not become heavy and it was very breathable. I'm trying to find this shoe again at the price that I paid for it before.

Tropical heat waves wont stop you with the Adidas Mens ClimaCool Cardona Trail Running Shoes, offering foot-heat relief for summer training.
- Backcountry Outlet refers to the men's version
If hot feet discourage you from summer runs, the Adidas ClimaCool Cadrona adventure racing shoe could be the coolest thing under the sun. This highly ventilated trail runner features full airflow from all sides, including the open ClimaCool midsole chassis beneath your feet. An internal Push Through Protection Plate (PTPP) in the midsole keeps the shoe support consistently stable, although you'll need wicking running socks if you plan on jumping puddles or fording streams. A resilient adiPRENE insert in the forefoot helps absorb shock without making you feel like the mesh areas along the sole compromise the cushioning of the shoe. If you believe in global warming, this could be the only running shoe you'll need all summer long.
