I keep seeing people write that they like the way these shoes look. I don't get it. I think they're uglier than anything Vibram has ever done.

The stripes are classic Adidas. The first thing they make me think of is the power bands on the Zemgear footwear, though.

What like about them, is that there are no straps or laces. Vibram has left the guys out with a strapless version of the Fivefingers. Unlike the ladies who has the Jaya, Jaya LR and soon to be released Clssic Fresca. I just wanted something that I could just slip on..

Not impressed. Those don't do anything that the KSO doesn't already do. Another "Me Too" attempt at tap into Vibram's cash cow. I guess imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. I will not be wasting any of my money on them.

These look interesting, I would consider getting a pair but only if they make them in all black or blue and black at least, I hate the Red. Too flashy!

It reminds me of the red and white striped track suits with side snaps so they can be ripped off. Maybe If I need a ridiculous halloween costume. I could be a track star or E-40!

I am glad to see some other try their hand at foot gloves, it will only expand the market. Plus I think it will bring attention the the fact that Vibram started the revolution.

Like Corey said, these remind me a LOT of ZEMs. This is the illegitimate child of ZEMs and VFF Jayas.

But I'm curious to try them. However, my fivefingers are used for running (almost exclusively), so I'm not sure how these would fare...

Can't wait to try these babies out. Frankly, these are immensely more attractive than most Vibram models (though the Bikila and Komodo are going in a better direction IMHO and the 2012 offerings are killer!) and if the price is good, I'd like a pair as my casual shoes (I tend to wear bold colors a lot, so it doesn't look horribly out of place on me XD)

I'll never understand why people think more options in the market is a bad thing, though. Yeah Vibram opened up a whole new market, but the more competition that comes out, the better it is for the end user as it makes all competitors step up their game. I'm glad Adidas came out with these shoes and I can't wait to give them a spin (though you'll have a hard time prying my current faves, the NB Minimus Wellness, off my feet). I'm just glad the minimalist movement is now being accepted versus just laughed at. Progress, no?

Great review, but I don't see myself getting a pair of these. I would be open to a 2nd or 3rd gen when they respond to the feedback from users AND if Vibram does not sue the pants off them.

I do like the increased attention to minimalist footwear options though and for a major player like Adidas to step into the ring, that will only cause Vibram to step their game up. From that perspective, it's a major WIN.

Thanks for the great post Justin. I do not think I will get a pair myself. I like VFF's because I can wear them: walking, exercising at the gym, doing yoga, and trail walking. I don't want to purchas toes shoes solely for the gym. I have noticed no one has mentioned wearing VFF's to a club and danced in them. Maybe I will have to take my sprints or speeds for a spin on the dance floor.

Interesting, it’s the beginning of great things, and what happened to the patent vibram had? Now vibram will have to push the bar or become Sony and lose out to the apples of the sports world, remember Sony invented the portable player. Guys what this really means is that technology will begin to flood the scene especially when Nike comes on board and they will! Don’t be fooled by marketing! Addidas and Nike will have you believe that you need special shoes to squat, lung, dead lift etc, I squat 310 pounds in classics, know your facts and do your own research, minimal will always be the best, with nearly all movements. On a final note I would like you all to imagine what Nike would bring to the table, for example the Nike zoom victory which uses fly wire and has a hole in the heel to save weight, they weight almost nothing, just image what type of barefoot shoe they could bring to the arena! Vibram may become the loyalist brand.

How's the sizing work on these? I'm 8.5 - 9 for running shoes but these seem like you'd want them tight. Would you think 8 or 9 would suit me better? I'm getting a pair from adidas to test out and they only offer whole sizing...

Wore em for about an hour to break em in then another hour+ at the gym. Really digging them. Also, love the fact they are Adidas who are the best football company on earth. Didn't want to wear some no-name brand like Vibram so I'm very happy Adidas is in the market place nice. I highly recommend you check your local finishline!

Mario, Nike have not lost out on anything, barefoot running has not even been recognised "officially" as safe nor a more efficient way to run, yes most of us know differently lol. Three ways which Nike could change the game and become the innovator of barefoot running, fully customized feet trainers, moulds taken of your feet and customised shoes made to measure at an increased cost. New materials allowing more sensory feedback. Decreased weight of shoe, through new technologies such as fly wire. Nike only needs to decide that they are entering and committing to the market, they are watching and collecting stats, trying to make the right decision. This could all be a tread. The market is new and experimental; Adidas is the first major to take the risk, don’t say Merrell they have no heritage in running, and new balance is a player, not a major. Finally Mario lets not forget the NIKE legacy of athletes, and what this means in terms of marketing, marketing is what sells a product, and NIKE is the king of marketing. The Oregon Waffle iron Bill Bowerman.

I have recently bought me a pair of these shoes in the black/metallic silver color combo. The day I bought them I wore them for about an hour and a half. They are very comfortable to wear. I got a size 8 and they fit me perfectly (I normally wear a size 9 to 9 1/2 in a running shoe.). Sizing down 1 to 1 1/2 sizes from your normal shoe size is not of the question for proper fit (toes just touching the end).

So I've had Vibrams and found the toe pockets to be too tight with no flex to allow them to stretch. The result was after about an hour in them I felt like I was going to promote ingrown toenails.

The addidas seem to be more foregiving in this area. I think they fit my feet better.

I will be running in them tomorrow morning. My regular running shoe is the Teva Zilch. But its November in DC and nobody has em.

I read your review, bought the shoes, and I don't think the review is very informative.

How are they not good to wear around town? Some Vibrams have way more ridiculous colours. If any, these look less flashy to me.

I've ran in them and they are, at least for me, better for running than VIbrams.

Their soles have plenty of padding which makes running a breeze, unlike Vibrams that give me blisters due to the very thin soles.

Talking about the soles, the heel area is bigger than that of Vibrams, but it doesn't mean they slide back and forth your feet. I think they breathe rather well too.

Finally, a point missed in the review and the only negative I can think of is the toe protection. If you stumble a little there's no rubber on the front of the toes, which means you might eventually have a hole in one of the toes. Vibram soles, in comparison, extend further up on the toes, and thus offer better protection/durability.

Comfortwise I would say they are about the same. If you like the barefoot feel though, you'll enjoy Vibrams more, but if you run alot the Adipure will absorb more of the foot strike impact on your feet.

Comment from: admin [Member]  

@Mario,

Glad you like the looks of them enough to wear around casually -- I'm just not a huge fan of the looks. It mostly has to do with the shimmer and shine of the adiPure -- looks a bit spacy and doesn't match to jeans, which are more muted. Obviously that's just my opinion and everyone's got their own sense of what's fashionable.

As for running in them, glad you're having success there, too. Adidas expressly indicated to me that these were not meant for running (1) and (2) relative to other toe shoes out there, the adiPures are a bit stiff and fight against some of the natural flex in your foot. This may or may not cause an issue for you running but I'd prefer a little less structure when it comes to a prone-to-injury-due-to-bad-form-or-foot-altering-footwear shoe. I think there are better options out there.

Regarding the heel, I noted the area is too big and that my heel seems to float. Never said anything about back and forth sliding. I also noted that I thought the upper breathed well, too.

Good point about the toe coverings and tripping and ripping -- just added that to my review where I discuss this design element.

I'll say last that one of the biggest points of "barefoot shoes" is to encourage gentle landing when walking, running, jumping, or whatever. That a shoe masks impact and allows you to "strike" at a higher impact than you would barefoot, well, that's likely going to lead to injury at some point.

I'm glad you like your AdiPures and I guess if my review somehow persuaded you to get them and you found you liked them more than I did, then that's a good thing, too. At the end of the day, reviews are subjective and I'd say based on your critique of the review, despite what you say, the review was actually pretty informative for you, too.

I guess I should be glad -- I'd hate to mislead someone into buying the shoes having higher expectations because of my review only to be disappointed, so I'll take your pleasant surprise.

Comment from: Skyler Tanner [Visitor]
Skyler Tanner

An important point to be made here, and why I'm enjoying the Adipure compared to my Vibram Speeds, is that Vibram's toe rubber is too narrow. On 3 VFF's in a row now (Glove, KSO, Speed) I've torn the fabric on the lateral side of the big toe (between big tow and index toe).

Understand that I don't run in these. Most of the activity is walking/pacing while training clients and weight training. Nothing high impact or repetitive impact. This is a huge pain that my barely 2 month old shoes have a tear in them because of terrible design. My toes are not large so the fact that the fabric touches the ground, ready to be worn out, speaks to poor design rather than anatomical freakiness.

The Adipure, on the other hand, have rubber that is wide enough that only by stubbing the very top of my toe could I touch the ground without rubber. Good design imo.

As with all of these, there are good and bad design aspects. I think as far as toeshoes goes, Adidas has vibram beat, at least as far as where the rubber meets the road... I had to.

best,
Skyler

I bought these shoes last week. I ran in them for couple of days.... all i have to say is that there are awesome!!!!! I had to purchase a 1/2 size smaller for the right fit....no damage from running.... actually the Adidas AdiPure Trainer seem to be more durable than Vibram older models.

Comment from: Mario [Visitor]

Hey Justin, yes I see your point regarding the looks - I got the black and white model and I think they look good, but of course they still turn heads regardless.

And the toe protection is really the biggest weakness I can see. If you train indoors they're fine, but since I've worn them out a couple of times, it seems that you don't even have to stubble to get dirt marks on front of the toes, the part where the sole joins with the fabric material. So they're definitely touching the ground somewhat and I think it's only a matter of time before there's a hole in one of the toes. Maybe I don't walk correctly but it's not a problem with Vibrams - they have better toe protection for a reason.

I didn't know they weren't intended for running though, and that seems to explain why their design is better for indoor/gym use.

Thanks again for your review, Justin. I hope that Adidas can bring out a model that's more suitable for outdoor use too.

Thanks doing what you do on this site...

I entered the toe shoe market last night with the Adipure Trainers. Love the look, fit, and performance for the most part.

In your wear testing did you have any pinching in the arch area, closer to the base of your big toe, where the rubber wraps up? It's only on my right foot and was curious if this is a common occurrence.

I bought these about a month ago and already put 134 miles on them. Vibrams, to me, crowd the toes. So much so that I started running in Teva Zilch. However it is winter here in DC and those Teva's are impossible to find. So on a whim I tried these Adidas in the store. I felt they fix everything that is wrong with the Vibrams. I find the upper infinitely more comfortable. I will agree the soles are stiffer than vibrams but in a good way. (Trail protection) Maybe I have wider feet but I don't seem to have a problem with heel lift unless the shoes are sopping wet. I absolutely LOVE these for running. I will also agree with the comments about these soles insulating your feet on cold surfaces. My feet do stay warmer.

I just saw these at Finish Line and tried them on. They are VERY comfortable! I am glad I didn't purchase them and instead looked here for a review - they were being sold as running shoes.

I wanted shoes that have a good balance in between the weight room and running.

I tried these on today and bought them because they are so comfortable. The bottoms may be stiff but not so much to the point where I can't flex my toes. I prefer them to be as stiff as they are.

I will be using these for running and weight lifting. I was concerned about how they would be for running but thanks to all the comments, I feel a little better about putting them on the street.

I will report back soon.

I just bought these today and wore them out of the store I was so impressed with the feel of them. I've yet to wear minimalist shoes before because I refuse to buy shoes without trying them on first. The only place I've ever seen VFF is online and believe me I've been looking in every sports store I came across.

After wearing them for about an hour I definitely started having some pain and aches in my toes and calves, which from what I've read up to this point, is perfectly normal for the first month or so until your body adjusts and the muscles not normally used are strengthened.

So far I have to say that they're great! They're a little difficult to slide into, but that's because my toes don't all point straight. I think as a child I had shoes that were too small which trained my toes to squish all together. One of my hopes is that wearing these shoes my toes may straighten back out in time. If not at least the proper muscles will be strengthened so that my running form will improve...as well as my times! Thanks for the great review!!!

I've had the Adipure Trainers for about 1.5 months and I love them. I used to get bad foot cramps doing the Plyo workout from P90x but not anymore. Also, these are awesome for doing squats, lunges, etc. I can't compare these to the VFFs, but gym rats should love these.

Before I left the change room a few guys asked me about them, but I couldn't give them any info as it was my first time using them. Great shoe I felt balanced with the weights and even on the treadmill they were great for running. Good review man I read this and got a pair, the toe bending is great kinda stiff on the toe wiggle but we are in the gym to work out not wiggle toes right?

The reviews are great, but there is never a mention about sizing. As with the vibram, you measure the length of the longest foot and use the chart to find your size. Are these the same? If you wear a 9 in normal tenny would you get these in the same size? bigger? smaller? An important part of the critique that was supremely overlooked

Because I use Converse all star this size:
uk: 7.5;

See, They're both supposed to be the same size fit, because both are uk: 7.5, it was no a brainer decision... WRONG. I can't even put my feet in one these adipure trainers.

Converse All-Stars tend to fit 1-3 sizes big(guys that wear 14-15 in regular sneakers, wear 12-13 in All-Stars), they're very out of line, with other shoe-brands.

Try finding your size in adidas first(you can try some at the locals sports-store), that should help you out..

I was anxious to pick up a pair, but unfortunately none of the sizes fit me. I'm a sad member of the population with "disproportional toes". For example my second toes on both feet are bigger than my big toes, and my 4th toes are "much" larger than my pinky toes. The result being my middle toes were squished into there pockets while my pinky toes couldn't even reach theirs. So, definitely look at the proportions of the toes on the sneakers and make sure your actual toes are the same. If not....save yourself a trip to the sporting goods store.

If you have big feet these are the only shoes out there that I have found. I normally wear a 16 EEEE and I was able to order these in a 16, 17 and 18. I had to go to 18 to avoid pressure on the end of my toes, but the heel now seems a little loose. Not perfect, but no other manufacturer that I am aware of makes anything this large.

I have a pair of Adidas Adipure Trainer toe shoes. Prefer them over VFF's any day. I think they are more comfortable and have a better feel to them. If you wear them with sweat pants or jeans out in public like I do... get ready for folks to comment about them. I don't get too many comments anymore since toe shoes like Skeletoes have become fairly common... but you will be asked about them several times a day. I don't care anymore since I like them and that's all that matters. Once you get into your 30's... you don't really care what people think about what you wear.

hello. i have a question regarding the choice of a minimalistic shoe. i just found about these kind of shoes few weeks ago and they seem very interesting to me because of that minimalistic, almost barefoot design. since i started working out barefoot all my ankle and knee pain is gone so i would like to get one of these shoes. i saw only those hyped ones(vibrams and adipure trainer) but they are kinda too expensive for me, since i probably wouldn't be wearing them in public and all time, and since winter is coming i really dont want to spend so much money on a shoe i would wear few hours a day. i would use a shoe like that when working out, and on a daily while doing sprints outside. with that said, i recently stumbled upon zemgear 360's, i really like the design and i find that the price is ok. soooo
TL;DR advice for taking a minimalistic shoe mainly just for working out and doing some interval training outdoors (usable in rain and snow if possible) and would zemgear 360 be the right choice for me then ?

Make sure your feet and toes are generally the same shape as the shoe before yo buy they. My three toes next to my big toe are about the same length as my big toe. So my toes were curled in the shoe. I could have bought a bigger size to fit my toes but overall the shoe would have felt loose on my foot.

My feet are also narrow, and these shoes felt as if they were spreading my toes apart.

These shoes are worth it if you have regular length toes and normal to wide feet.

I purchase a pair myself and I have to say I'm not to found of them I run on the daily basis and I was so happy when I bought these I went running as soon as I got home and weep on the way back home I felt every rock I step on..... Although I do love the fact that you can fill the grass running threw your toes hahah

Are these water resistant? I'm looking for a waterproof/resistant pair that are less exoensive than the Lontras.

How do the adipures fit compared to your kimodo sports? I have a pair of the sports that fit just perfectly in a size 42 and am not sure if I should get a 42 for the adipures as well.

I own a pair. The color combination is an inverted version of what Justin owns. I wear them occasionally around the house or when working out. I also love wearing them when im riding my bike around LA. Its funny when people stare at my feet. I get shocking looks and smiles.
Over all
these shoes look cool and feel good.
I recommend you get a pair. My brother got them for 50$ @ Big 5.

great review, I have a question for anyone who owns these and has used them for Insanity. Yes/no on doing the program with them? I have some Reebok cross trainers and a pair of Nike TR1's, but these caught my eye. I know Adidas considers them a gym shoe, but Insanity is a bit different than just a typical gym routine. They definitely don't have anywhere close to as much cushioning as my TR1's, but I didn't expect them to.

While I find them comfortable for far, I'm a bit worried with all the high plyo stuff in Insanity I could end up injuring my feet/legs. They just don't feel like they have enough sole to them. I could very well be wrong here though.

These are my favorite toe shoes. Vibrams are too minimalist for me.
Adidas now makes a Adipure 1.1 trainer barefoot five toe shoe. However, the color variety has been reduced. But I intend to buy the most updated one from Adidas which are the Adipure 1.1 trainer toe shoes. What I like is the toe separation more than just the minimalist feel. Because my shoe size is irregular and wide, the Adipure 1.0 and Adipure 1.1 are just right. They are more sturdy than the Vibrams and the Fut Gloves. Way to go Adidas. However, they need the return the Red Onyx color back to their product line. Nevertheless, again, way to go Adidas!
