2010 Fall Running Shoe Review Homepage

Much like the original, beloved Supernova with some modern tweaking, the Adapt offers a dependable, stable, high-mileage trainer that our testers appreciate and laud as supportive and comfortable. The midfoot hold is enveloping enough to prevent heel slippage and allows for a roomy toe box. Our test team especially likes the arch height, support and overall cushioning that remains consistent over long training sessions. “I will continue to use these shoes going forward for everyday running,” comments one tester.
