I’m going to take this conversation back to the Adidas Atonement for a second, because they literally saved my feet.
The first stride felt like I had a cloud beneath me. My mid foot hits the pavement with more grace than ever, and my form is so smooth it’s as if angels are carrying me across the ground.
These are great for cross training and cross country. When I do hill repeats as high as Golgotha and am so dead tired I lay in bed as if I’m in a tomb, simply putting these shoes on for a redemption run resurrects me.
This shoe has the trinity of support, cushion and light weightedness that every runner is looking for, but often feel lost because they can’t find it anywhere else. I’m telling you - it’s time to let these shoes carry you and your burdens.
While I know it’s best to alternate shoes, I have a daily devotion to wearing these. These shoes are the only one way to PR, and all other shoes will lead to hell during a race.
If you’ve been struggling with injury, these are the perfect Hail Mary to save your running career. One reviewer said that he loved these shoes so much, he would lay down his Vaporfly 4%s for a friend, take up cross country and follow his feet wherever the Adidas Atonement take him.
I want to be like this guy - a true disciple whose sole has been made new and lasts forever and ever. Amen.
