Reviews Adidas adiZero Ace

Adidas adiZero Ace

Weighing in at about 218g, the adiZero Ace can be considered as a faster-paced training shoe for lighter athletes, or a mid-weight racer for heavier runners and over longer distances. Support-wise it’s ‘neutral’, meaning that it’s best for those blessed with good running mechanics.

The light and flexible material provides a comfy fit, though the shoes seem to be sized small – consider a half size up from your usual UK measurement before buying. As for performance, they feel light, responsive and comfortable, but probably too flimsy for long training mileages (unless you weigh about nine stone).

As for triathlon suitability, the heel tab is very soft and it folded in when trying to stuff feet in quickly. Plus the inner sole wasn’t fixed in place securely so it moved around with a sweaty bare foot inside. Finally, the striking black and yellow colour scheme is eye-catching but will no doubt be a ‘love it or hate it’ option, depending on your sense of style.
