    Enjoyed the this shoe as a daily trainer. Liked the slightly firmer feel to this shoe as opposed to the super soft shoes. Really good mileage ( 800+ miles) from the Adios 6. the 7's though the uppers were not a durable. The soles are still great but material has seperated and torn near the toe box after a few weeks.

    I've been wearing Adios for years, and they work for me.  Enough cushion for long runs, but light enough for shorter races.  Easy to find on sale for less than $100.

    Adidas Adizero Adios 7 is a great light weight shoe but the upper is flimsy and gets holes in it way too soon. Also, I preferred the old waffle grip as it didn’t get little pebbles stuck in it as this grip does. 

  • Needed about 50 miles to break them in

    I used to love the adios as my racing flat and the Boston as my daily trainer. I found the adios 7 for $35 and couldn’t say no. I did not like them for the first 50 miles…they were super stiff, and the toe box was too narrow (my pinky toe would rub). Since then, the toe box has loosened up a bit, and they don’t seem quite as stiff. They’re still not my favorite, but I don’t mind running in them now. After 100 miles the inside portion of both toes have a sizable rip, so I’m not sure I’ll make it to 200 miles.

    This shoe is very very stiff, and has almost nothing to offer in the comfort department. the upper is made of a woven plastic material that seems to have absolutely no stretch whatsoever, so the upper bunches up badly around the front of the arch when the shoe is weighted. the heel cup is severely lacking, and after 30 or so miles in these shoes I'm still taping my achilleas tendon for blisters. I will say that the extra eyelets to customize the lacing positions are pretty nice, and desperately needed to make this shoe runnable at all.  durability of the upper is very questionable, because it doesn't stretch, it just folds, so I feel the plastic will break before long. the continental rubber outsole will definitely outlive the upper.
