Gear Pick of the Week: Adidas Adizero Adios 2 Men’s Running Shoes (SS12)

Adidas Adizero Adios 2 Men's Running Shoes (SS12), £85.00

Kerry says: Tis the season for 5 and 10K races and the need for speed is upon us.

I’ve chosen this minimalist shoe as it is the (self-proclaimed) world’s fastest flat racing shoe and has been designed for top athletes.

They're ultra light and feature a snug and breathable fit with flexible mid-foot support. The heat and sweat reducing mesh that covers them means they are ideal for fast summer runs.

Features include: adiPRENE insert in the heel for shock absorption, non-slip lining, superior grip and quick strike outsole for maximum flexibility and durability.

Plus the fluorescent colourway will make you look really cool… or at least help you stand out from the crowd. I like to think of them as bionic shoes.
