Adidas fitness and training shoes are typically loaded with high-tech features and are available in a range of prices. The Adidas EnduroBounce TR features Adidas signature BOUNCE™ technology, which appears to provide exceptional cushioning, and a nylon mesh panel on the top of the foot for breathability. A generous toe box will accommodate slightly wider feet, although the shoe offers nearly zero arch support. In fact, the outer portions of the insoles feel slightly raised, which might be of benefit to individuals whose ankles tend to supinate or roll outward.
Overall, the shoe is stylish and provides adequate support. The sole provides good traction and changing direction, even at a relatively fast speed, was not a problem. One surprising drawback is the flimsy laces that come with the shoes, which makes it difficult to sufficiently tighten the laces for a secure fit. While this is an easy fix, it definitely detracts from the usability and overall appeal of the shoe. This shoe runs slightly small and ordering at least a half-size larger is recommended (a full size if thick socks are worn).
