Honest review of the new Adidas Yeezy Foam Runner shoes!

The Adidas Yeezy Foam Runners hit the market by surprise in June 2020. It sold out as soon as it hit the market. However, since they went on sale, they have maintained their popularity among shoe lovers.

These shoes have become the talk of the town for several good reasons. So here is a quick review of these Adidas Yeezy Foam Runners.

Shoe fitting

Adidas Yeezy foam running shoes usually run a bit smaller. However, it is only available in full size. So if you are a half size it is best to go up as the shoe has a thick layer of foam towards the toe area. And if you have the actual size, you should stick to your actual size.

When we talk about heel lock, these shoes keep your feet exceptionally secure without wearing heel slippage. Plus, your feet won’t slip even when you’re sweating thanks to the honeycomb material under your feet.

Cushioning of the Adidas Yeezy Foam Runner

The cushioning of the shoe is excellent. It’s really soft under your feet, like you’ve just worn it out of the box. We can compare its responsive but soft cushioning with the excellent Adidas Boost or Nike React.

Other typical shoes compared to the Adidas Yeezy Foam Runner are the classic Crocs. However, Adidas Yeezy’s cushioning is noticeably more comfortable and gentle on the soles of your feet. Also, wearing these shoes does not feel like standing on a platform as they have a medium heel height.

Material of the Yeezys

There is not much to say about the hardware of these runners. It is made of high quality algae-based foam. These are made in the USA with functionally durable and visually appealing foam.

You can just remove the scuffs with a towel and normal water no matter how hard you wear them. The best part is that people don’t face any issues like wear and tear, bumps or cuts even after wearing them for months.

Tensile characteristic

The traction pattern of the shoe suggests the wavy pattern on the base of the shoe in all flex areas. The pull feature of the skates is not too thick and has quite a large space between each wave. This makes them perfect shoes for casual wear and not so recommended for running, especially when it’s raining.

It’s surprising to have the traction pattern in an entire foam shoe. The traction puts you at ease and has full grip. There are chances of minor traction loss even after regular use of the shoes. They are great for long term use.

All in all, it’s quite nice to have a pair of Adidas Yeezy Foam Runner shoes. It is something that would catch viewers attention even if people are not a big fan of sneakers.

For a retail price of $80, they are doing very well in the market. At this price, they are surprisingly very comfortable. It has a soft, cushioned sole that molds to the shape of your feet.

The Yeezy foam runner is both durable and attractive, and according to customer reviews, it lasts much longer than any other 100% authentic foam shoe. Moreover, the holes in the shoes make them perfect to wear even in hot climate regions. Another best thing about it is its unique aesthetic.
