Review of Adidas Supernova Glide

After using the Adidas Supernova Glide for 1 month and 125 km to be exact , what can I say about it ? If I compare it with my other shoes , I would say Adidas Supernova Glide has more cushioning compared with other shoes .

How do I know that , is it psychological you may ask ?

Its not . Reason was that on one of my tranining runs , there was a day which I used a supposedly good cushioning shoe and that was the Asics Gel 1120 . It was quite nice using this 367 gm shoe .

The next day , I then used the Adidas Supernova Glide , which is just a little bit lighter by just 6 gm and no one would have felt the difference .

My , I tell you , running on Adidas Supernova Glide was such a luxury and such a "glide" if I may pun . It ws so much different from the Asic . It was so easy on the knees and on impact , I don't know how to explain but there is some sort of little spring to it .


In fact , when on slow runs , its easy to run on .


On fast run , I can really feel that Adidas Supernova Glide is very different from my current Asics . I can really run fast effortlessly and better then if i were to run fast on Asics . I'm not joking that it was easier to run fast on Adidas Supernova Glide . I can tell you why .

Because there was one day , I went for speed tranning at the track , I took a shoe that looked like my light weight Asic racing shoe , the Asic Ohana racer . During the run , towards the end , I find it was getting a bit harder to run in which in usual circumstance it would be easy and light . Then as i was going back after the trainning , I looked at the shoe and it was a wrong Asics , it was the trainer not the speedwork racer !

The next day , I had a training run and used the Adidas Supernova Glide , every 2.3km round I ran at Lake Garden was faster and faster . I could feel my legs getting tired but because when we run fast , we tend to have larger strides making our landing harder , the shoe helped with the landing and translated the hard land into a quick response for the next stride , if I may explain this in the simplest layman terms .

It was such a difference and such a glide !


Overall , highly recommended , it is easy on the legs because of the superb cushioning and response . You will not regret buying it . Its better than the other Adidas that I have !
