Adidas Supernova Sequence

I did say that I would go in to the shoe shop expecting to buy one type of trainers and probably come out with a completely different pair.

Here is a brief overview of the trainers:

Adidas Supernova Control Sequence Running Shoe. A brand new stability shoe from Adidas with luxury cushioning.

  • 3D Formotion – to ease the transition between the toe off and landing
  • No Seam Fit Technology – for an amazingly comfortable fit
  • GeoFit Lining – for an anatomical and very comfortable fit
  • LiteStrike 55 Inlay – for lightweight comfort and soft feel
  • adiPrene – in rear foot for shock absorption
  • adiPrene+ – for dynamic forefoot propulsion
  • Torsion System – for independent movement between the fore and rear foot

A great stability shoe which provides great pronation support aswell as having luxury top of the range cushioning to help take the strain no matter how many miles you do.

I tried on a pair of Asics Kayano trainers and they were just too hard. There wasn’t enough cushioning for my taste. The same went for the Asics 2130 trainers so Asics was out of the running within 10 mins of my 1 hour+ visit to the shop.

I tried on varous Brooks and New Balance trainers but in the end I went for the Adidas Supernova Sequence trainers. They just seems to offer the cushioning I was looking for and they are still “stability” trainers which will hopefully offer the support I need in the arches.

It was an added bonus that the shoes were also on sale and reduced to £68 instead of £80. I would’ve easily paid up to (an probably more) £100 on new shoes but these were a bargain.
The fellow who was helping (putting up with) me at the shop said I could try them out on a treadmill and if I didn’t like them that I could take them back without any problem. On Sunday I’m going to test them out at the gym on the treadmill and see how they really feel.

So I’ve got my new shoes and hopefully these won’t cause me any pain or injury. They should also carry me nicely up until early next year when I’ll probably need another new pair of trainers.

The only thing I need to buy now is a pouch for my Nike+ sensor so I can still use it with my iPod. I’ve seen them online and they attach to the laces with the sensor held firmly inside. That way, if I really start liking non-Nike brands I can still at least make use of the their Nike+ sensor technology. That is until I want a Garmin forerunner or some other sort of GPS running technology.
