Really comfortable, but slippery. Don't risk your life with this shoe.

Pros

  • Ultralight
  • Comfortable cushion
  • Good tongue design

Cons

  • Slippery on hard wet surface
  • Too narrow for my size
  • Slippery on muddy trails

Be careful when jumping or running using this shoes on cliffs or steep ground, you might risk your life by using a slippery trail running shoes like this one.

My foot size is 43,5 (Europe). I usually wear 44,5 hiking shoes. But with this one, I use 45-1/3 for this shoe, and yet the toe box is still too narrow for me.

I don't even know why I bought this shoe in the first place. I think because I tried it using no socks and it feels really-really-soooo comfortable.

I've been using this shoe everyday and yet it is still too narrow. The shoe cannot be expanded nor adapt to my foot shape. I slipped a lot at the public toilet/bathroom while using this shoe.

I've used this shoe for a 2D1N trip on muddy and steep trails. I slipped a lot while ascending, and even more while descending. I don't recommend this shoe for extreme trail with lots of mud, big rocks terrain, or steep ground.

But if you're going to hike on dry/dusty trail, there's no issue with it.

Thanks for the review, Fattah! Are you going to replace these with a difference shoe?

The shoe is so light and comfortable it is like you aren't wearing a shoe. I like the sock-like upper which holds your feet in securely and gives a very stable feel. The continental outsole has excellent grip and the lugs are long enough so that the shoe is versatile and can be used on various types of trails.

Pros

  • Excellent fit
  • Grippy outsole
  • Versatile terrain uses

Cons

  • None

What amazed me about this shoe is its fit and that when wearing it, it doesn't feel like you are wearing a shoe. That is due to the sock-like upper. The lacing system locks in your feet and it doesn't require a lot of stopping and retying before and during a trail run.

If I had the choice of any trail running shoe at this point it would be the Boost Response. You've hit the mark, Adidas.
