Adidas Supernova Performance Review

No matter how times change, there are always people whose love for running remains the same. And talking about running, a good pair of running shoes may be the first thing that comes to mind for many people. For me, I haven’t run in a while for personal reasons, but my love for running spurred me to keep running. After my friends’ recommendation and my collecting information from all parties, I finally decided to choose this pair of Adidas Supernova that is tailored to runners who decide to resume running.

In terms of the shoes’ appearance, there come in a number of different colorways so as to satiate the demands of its fans. The one I’ve got here is the fluorescent pink, which has a brighter, more stylish look than the others.

The vamp is made of woven breathable mesh fabric with different densities in different areas. The fore vamp adopts larger breathable meshes that can effectively increase air permeability. Besides, the vamp is carefully woven so that the vamp support and comfort are both greatly enhanced.

The three symbolic bars of Adidas at the side form an obvious contrast to the pink vamp, increasing a sense of beauty without seeming monotonous. The bars, however, are made of plastic that improves the shoe’ support, but reduces its breathabilty as well.

There in the upper part of the tongue is a logo that is also made of plastic, which is likely to rub our ankles. Therefore, it requires us to be well equipped so as to avoid any possible discomfort and put our abilities to good use.

There is a marked upturn in the rear topline, which is to help us put on and take off the shoes more easily and smoothly, and to prevent rubbing our ankles.

From the inside of the shoes we can see several wisps of sunlight clearly, from which we can tell that the vamp is quite thin and breathable. As for the insoles, they are only mediocre with moderate softness and elasticity.

The midsole adopts the BOUNCE material that is endowed with good toughness and elasticity. Compared to a Boost of the same size, BOUNCE is lighter and provides plenty of rebound during every runner’s exercise.

The heel of the shoe is added with Boost that is relatively light and elastic, allowing us to feel a high rebound cushioning during running, effectively absorbing the impact of landing, and protecting our feet in motion.

Like many other running shoes, Supernova’s outsole is also made of anti-slip rubber that increases its durability. The grip patterns also perform nicely by offering a good grip performance regardless of the road conditions.

Judging from my experience, the vamp wraps my feet very well, though there is still some room in the fore part. Nevertheless, it is because of the extra room that blisters caused by friction between feet and shoes can be avoided. For its weight, it is in line with the standard of marathon training shoes. However, as some people observed that they want the shoes to be used for commuting, I want to tell you from my own experience that the shoes would not be that satisfactory if used this way because the soles are not so soft.


Having enough flexibility, satisfactory comfortness, excellent wrapping and exactly right rebound, Adidas Supernova is overall good and saves much energy for runners. Although its tongues are a bit hard and may bring on blisters, it is still suitable for daily short distance running or daily training.

adidas Supernova Performance Review

Many running events were delayed or suspended over the past special year, and because of this, many people were also restrained from running outdoors and some even gave up exercising. However, because of the marathon, many people have begun to resume running to better prepare for the match. And one of the basic conditions for preparing running games is to have a pair of good running shoes. So here I bring the adidas Supernova to share some of its information with you.

Firstly, with regard to its appearance, there are a number of different colorways available. And this one I picked is the fluorescent pink which is said by many buyers to be coquettish when it is compared with other colorways. But on the other hand, the pink one, from my perspective, is brighter,  more stylish and eye-catching. And most importantly, I think it will make me more confident when I am running for some challenging matches. But this is just kind of psychological effect.


The vamp is made of woven breathable mesh cloth and in the different areas  of the vamp are fabric with different density. For the front vamp, there is the mesh cloth with larger air holes which ensure sufficient air permeability. What’s more, the stitching on the vamp can to a great extent improve the vamp support and comfort.

The three black stripes at the side vamp is always that iconic and eye-catching, which forms a contrast to the pink vamp. They are distinguishing and can increase support though, they also reduce air permeability of the vamp. But this is so negligible that I am willing to write it off.

The tongue adopts an all-in-one design, which can avoid the displacement of the tongue during our the movement. It also has a laminated structure, which can make the shoes hug our feet better, but its air permeability is at the mean time affected to some extent. On the upper part of the vamp is the plastic logo which may rub our ankles during running.


The midsole adopts the  BOUNCE which is a little lighter than the Boost and provides a lot of feedback during our running, making us more comfortable when exercising .


At the heel of the shoes is added with BOOST material, which is relatively light and elastic. Actually, when I am exercising, I can clearly feel the rebound from  underfoot, especially from the heel.

And for the sole, it is made of anti-slipping and wear-resistant rubber, which can effectively improve the durability of the sole. At the same time, the grid anti-skid pattern design adopted, which is mentioned earlier, can increase the anti-slipping performance. The pattern of the sole is hallowed, which can provide good grip for us in different kinds of roads.


As a pair of running shoes, this adidas Supernova is in fact superior considering its overall performances. And as a pair of running shoes, adidas Supernova is also outstanding in terms of its weight. When we are running oblivious of ourselves, it surely won’t bring burden for us and will only be of great help.


To summarize, Adidas Supernova’s overall performance is good. The full-foot Bounce and the rear Boost help save energy during running; the outsole can then offer traction to help us run faster. All in all, this is an ideal model for short daily runs, trainings and matches.
