The technology to take you further

adidas technologies continue to deliver a distraction-free and responsive running experience that focuses on differing degrees of comfort, cushioning, support and protection, depending on your running needs.

For beginners running on the road, adidas Bounce midsole technology is a versatile game changer. Made from EVA foam that is engineered to cushion the feet for a responsive, smooth-running experience.

For longer training plans where counting the miles is key, consider designs with adidas’ Boost and Ultraboost technology. Boost reigns supreme in the world of energy return using thousands of expanded particles in the midsole that deliver an unbeatable energy boost in every stride in all weather conditions. Elevating the running experience by cushioning your feet and providing extraordinary energy return mile after mile.

If running off-road in the wild is your thing, you need trail-running shoes that stay fast and keep you protected over grass, mud and stones. Using a combination of Boost and extremely light and durable Lightstrike technology, we have agile men’s sports shoes with explosive speed and rubber outsoles that grip beautifully in the wet for Park Runs or forest paths.

Industry-leading innovations like using 3D printed midsoles in some running shoes models keep adidas at the cutting edge.

Running shoes for men Frequently Asked Questions

There are slight differences between men's and women’s running shoes. The primary difference is in the width, as women have narrower feet than men. Some designs have uppers constructed slightly differently to account for the differences in foot shape.
Depending on the type of walking you have planned, wearing running shoes isn’t always a good idea. Walking has a lot less impact than running, so there isn’t as much need for cushioning. Also, a lightweight sports shoe may not give you the protection that you need. Walking shoes need to suit your gait, as well as the right level of flexibility. Some running shoes will be too flexible and will not provide the structure and support required for walking.
Running shoes should fit snugly and laced accordingly, but bear in mind your feet will expand when you run. Breathable sports shoes with mesh uppers will help keep your feet cool. If you feel any numbness when you run, your shoes may be too tight. However, if you wear your running shoes too loose, your foot will slide around in the shoe.
