The Adidas Supernova Adapt is a superior running shoe to carry you through those longer runs, even when your legs and mind are telling you it’s time to head back.
Offering tons of stability and cushion, this shoe is considered a great option for moderate to severe overpronators, and was voted Editor’s Choice for Runner’s World Magazine in 2010.

The design of the Supernova Adapt was created to give your feet a tight fit, and plenty of cushion to keep your feet from moving around during your run.
With memory foam in the insole to wrap and hold your heel in place, you will instantly notice the comfort and stability of this update to the Adidas trademark shoe, the Supernova Classic.
The Supernova Adapt also comes equipped with a TORSION SYSTEM, which offers increased arch support for those runners who suffer from neutral to moderate overpronation. To absorb shock in your knees, the Adapt also is packed with adiPRENE+ technology.
As with all shoes in the Supernova series, these Adidas Adapt’s are lightweight, and geared for the runner looking for a little more stability.
The latest Adapt has several upgrades to its predecessor, the Adidas Supernova Classic. It was made to be a more comfortable shoe, with more cushion in the heel, and a softer upper sole. The Supernova Adapt is also less stiff than the Classic, and offers increased flexibility during your run.
Is Adidas Supernova Adapt The Best Running Shoe For Me?
One of the most common remarks about this shoe is the value. For under $100, the Adidas Supernova Adapt is a very affordable option for the runner who suffers from moderate overpronation.
Runners also appreciate the wider toe box since the rest of the shoe fits quite snug. This snugness was a tad annoying to some of the runners we polled, and it was suggested that you purchase ½ size larger than you normally wear.
One of the cons associated with this shoe was the weight, which seemed heavy to some. Others commented that the shoe was a little stiff, and took several runs to break in.
Both of these criticisms are common in a motion control shoe, and should be expected to a certain degree. For a lighter weight option, check out our review on the Adidas Adizero Tempo.
Overall, the Adapt is considered a fantastic shoe to train for your next race, especially when logging longer runs. However, it may not be the best race day shoe because it is slightly heavier than your typical performance shoe.
