The adidas adipure Gazelle 2 offers lightweight protection for training and racing, featuring minimal cushioning and an extra-firm ride.



Go low and light with the adidas adipure Gazelle 2. A flexible platform provides just a touch of impact protection and offers plenty of responsiveness for fast running. A stretch mesh upper molds around the shape of your foot, while the adidas 3-stripes and a padded heel collar hold your foot securely. A 6mm drop brings your foot closer to the ground to encourage an efficient stride.

Comments: I've been running in minimalist shoes now for 5 years. I've evolved to the Adidas Gazelle and use them as my everyday trainer. I love this shoe in every way - please continue to make it, Adidas! It is a real winner for those that have locked in a natural running form. It provides just the right amount of cushioning for road running, not too much, not too little, the responsiveness is totally consistent and reliable. The upper is completely comfortable at all times and in all temperatures (I run down to zero degrees F outside). The shoe requires good natural running form, but when you are conditioned to provide that, these shoes perform like a dream!
