Over the past few weeks, I have been running a lot more to ensure I stay in shape throughout the holiday period. Under normal circumstance, I would wear a solid pair of running shoes – you might remember the adiZero running shoes I purchased earlier this year. But randomly, I decided to try out the Adidas adi5 X turf shoes last week for a run – and to my surprise, they turned out to be fantastic to run in! So much so that I have continued to wear them running daily.
Since these boots are designed for artificial surfaces, I was super surprised that they were comfortable on concrete. They give a nice bounce and on each step my foot feels really cushioned. Running shoes are designed to give the same type of foot protection, but I have ultimately found the turf shoes to offer much better support. Is it just the soccer player in me wanting to wear a “cleat” off the field? Who knows, but it got me looking on soccer.com for a fresh pair to use for running in, and I spotted a new Night Sky/White/Cyan version of the Adidas adi5 X that I am going to invest in!
Ultimately for now, my current pair of adi5 X have been converted to my running shoes! Has anyone else used turf shoes for running in? If so, share your experience with me in the comments below!
