Both shoes were designed to push world class marathoners under the two hour barrier, and while the Nike model really broke the mold, the Adidas Adizero Sub2 really sticks to traditional racing flat feel and construction.
On one hand you experience beautiful design, simplicity, and an unbelievably lightweight package, but, on the other hand, there are only a handful of sub-elite runners that can use this flat for a full marathon.
For the rest of us this is a $180 10k flat that we worry about getting too dirty in between races.
Adidas Adizero Sub 2 General Info
The Adidas Adizero Sub2 is an elite racing flat aimed at helping Adidas’ flagship runners break the two hour barrier in the marathon.
It sits atop Adidas’ racing line, eclipsing the Adios Boost as their most expensive, and lightest, racing shoe.
Compared to other racing flats on the market, the $180 Sub2 is about $80-$90 more expensive, and does not offer that different of a ground feel or performance boost.
At 5.5 ounces this shoe is light and airy while still offering the kind of cushioning normally experienced in a shoe that weights two ounce more at least.
The Sub2 is open and airy and the very simple three stripes logo is printed on. Pure art for design aficionados out there.
