Problems with adidas trainers?

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 17:43

I know! I think exactly the same! Instead of tweaking a trainer and putting it out under a newer version number, call it something else?

I still have some discomfort at the back of the knee, but nowhere near the problem I was having.

How odd is this? Have just put on my new version 4's, and maybe it's psychological, but there's much less discomfort. Am going for a walk in them to see how they go.

Thanks Readsteadyrun. Have ordered some and I think they have arrived over the weekend, so I'll be trying them soon.  That's interesting about the heel drop. I didn't buy sequence 5 at all as I had 3 different pairs of 4's on the go.

Thank you

The kanadias are daft sizes. I have a 7.5 shoe for road and 9.5 for trail :S

MIllsy - which brands do you use? I've always used adidas and use the kanadias for trail.  I've tried asics and saucony in the shop and haven't got on with them - they just didn't feel comfortable.

 I am beginning to feel that if the adidas no longer work for me then obviously I will have to try something else, but it's finding something that will fit and feel right.  The adidas always felt like they were just the right fit. I have managed to find some old version 4's online and that'll do for now, but it's just a short term fix.

At the time I couldn't get to the local running shop, and I prefer adidas, so thought I would ask them first. Brand loyalty and all that.

I didn't want to have to change brand if I don't have to as I have tried other brands and haven't found one that I am as comfortable with as adidas. I've been running in adidas trainers for over 10 years - predominantly the supernova sequence for the last 6 years.  The newer version doesn't feel as comfortable as the other previous versions, and doesn't have the same flexibility in the toe area, so I just thought I would ask adidas if there was another model of shoe that they might recommend, and I thought I would ask here to see if other people had found problems.

That's all.

Because I need something with moderate stability and cushioning, and just wondered if there was another shoe in their range that I could go to a store and try.

As I said, I had been analysed.

I should clarify - I e-mailed adidas to ask if there was perhaps another style of shoe that would suit me better, bearing in mind that I need some cushioning and some moderate support.  I didn't tell them that their shoe had caused my injury.

I had been analysed, and I need moderate stability, with some cushioning. I've been with the same trainer (adidas supernova sequence) through versions 2, 3, 4 and 5, so I ordered the 6's as I couldn't find any more of the earlier versions to purchase.  This version doesn't feel as cushioned or as comfortable, and the sole isn't as flexible as the toes bend.

I have found and ordered a pair of the old version 4's online today which don't have the Continental rubber sole, so I will see how I feel in those when they arrive.

I appreciate your point that it might not be the trainers, but nothing else that I am aware of has changed. I know I overpronate, and I know I need cushioning too.
