I used to run a lot back when I was still studying in Berlin, but I stopped when I came to Kuala Lumpur. Recently though, due to strong persuasion by friends and the overall feeling of being unfit, I decided to take up running again. Since my exercise shoes of choice had always been adidas, I checked out their latest everyday running shoe, the adiZero Feather 2.
The first thing that I love about the adiZero Feather 2 for ladies? The colours! Yeah, that’s a pretty girly thing to say, but black, pink and white make the shoes feminine and fashionable. Secondly, and most importantly, I just couldn’t stop being amazed at how light they are! I tried them on different foundations: the treadmill, concrete, and soil. The adiZero is so light (it weighs an amazing 160g), it almost feels like I’m running barefoot but with no compromise on the comfort, support and breathability.
Verdict? After a few weeks running in these shoes, I haven’t experienced the slightest discomfort and I’m extremely satisfied with them. People often think that what you wear isn’t important while exercising – that’s wrong! You need to be comfortable when you’re working out, and that in a way motivates me to do it on a regular basis. Plus, the adiZero Feather 2 is priced at RM399, which I think is quite affordable for such high quality shoes.
adiZero Feather 2 key features:
-miCoach compatible, which enables the runner to record up to eight hours of performance data, including speed, distance, pace, time, number of sprints.
-SPRINTFRAME platform is attached to the upper, ensuring optimum forefoot propulsion and saving shoe weight.
