With Adidas Running Supernova Sequence 6 W running shoes, you’ll get a comfortably lightweight shoe with a moderate amount of arch support that will transition with you, as you improve your running ability and will give you a smooth 8-minute-per-mile pace during a road race.
Mixed reviews plague recreational runners who’ve purchased the shoe citing some issues with fit. The traditional lace-up front closure allows you to customize your fit, based on the level of security you crave in a shoe.
However, issues have been cited that the laces frequently come undone, putting you at risk for an accidental fall, possible injury and the potential to be a pesky problem. Others have mentioned that the tongue of the shoe tends to move quite a bit when running long distances.
Aside from some lace issues, which can be alleviated with a simple double knot, the majority of complaints stem from the big change in the aesthetics of the Supernova.
The newer 6 model is much narrower than previous models and has a squarer toe. Wearers of earlier models loved previous models of this shoe because of the width, making it a great choice for the older runners looking to accommodate orthopedic inserts. Other reviewers cite that the change to imprinted highlights instead of sewn on details, cheapens the overall look of the shoe.
Other female reviewers, however, are ecstatic about the upgrade in style for this model and the explosion of color varieties offered with the Adidas Running Supernova Sequence 6 W running shoes.
With colors like Electricity, which is a blend of purples and lime green or the white/silver combo that incorporates pops of a coral-hued pink, it’s no wonder that fashionable runners gravitate towards these shoes. Other options include pinks, greens, and yellows.
So, what else makes the Supernova Sequence 6W so impressive? There are several great technical features about these shoe, including:
- FORMOTION technology allows your shoe to mold to the ground surface of your running route, giving you the smoothest, most comfortable run possible.
- ADIPRENE in the forefront of the shoe allows the show to maintain its propulsion and efficiency, which is important for repeated stress of pounding the pavement. The added cushioning at the heel absorbs most of the impact, while the breathable air mesh upper with synthetic overlay provides stellar support.
- GEOFIT construction allows for a more customizable anatomical fit, increasing your comfort level as you log miles.
- The PRO-MODERATOR is a medial support device that helps prevent overpronation, giving you extra insurance against a preventable running injury.
While some reviewers aren’t fans of the new style, the shoe itself is the same great shoe as previously loved models, but with a huge overhaul in aesthetics. An overwhelming majority, love how stylish this lightweight and flexible shoe is, clearly making it a style that will go the distance.
