Adidas Supernova Cushion £69.99


Posted: 12 June 2000

Weight 378g
Evaluation
A refreshingly clean and reasonably priced antidote to earlier offerings, the Supernova Cushion is now Adidas’s top-end cushioning shoe. Like the stability version of the Supernova, the Cushion places an emphasis on deep, plush cushioning, with full-forefoot Adiprene Plus.
As its weight suggests, it’s more of a midweight- to big-guy shoe than any of the former Supernovas were (at 310g, the £65 Boston is now the best faster-paced neutral trainer from Adidas). A thick midsole, a big midfoot shank, a broad base of support and a heavily overlaid upper, make it a protective, relatively supportive option.

In short
The Supernova Cushion is designed as a plush alternative to the Supernova for runners who don’t need medial support. But because it has a broad base and decent midfoot control, the chances are that many mild overpronators will consider both variations. It’s good for slightly heavier runners, though not the biggest shoe-crushers.
