Customer Reviews

Comments: Been a fan of this shoe back to its supernova cushion days. This is my favorite glide so far. Love the new upper over the toe box. I also love the new tongue and laces. Great cushioning for long runs and you can get a lot of miles out of them. I got 700 out of my glide 5s. I've even done some fartleks in these and they were fine. Good training shoe for easy and long runs and some speed. Smooth ride. I've ran in the brooks ghost, glycerin, and Saucony ride, but the Adidas Glide remains my go to training shoe.

Comments: This is a great everyday trainer. I use it for long runs and easy days, and it is light enough for workouts inside of long runs. I've used several iterations of the Glide, as well as the Boston and the Adios, and am very happy with this shoe. The last two versions have gotten much lighter with a smoother ride. The tongue on the 5 is better than on the 4 as the prior model was a little too short and would slide on me. Highly recommend the Glide 5.
