Customer Reviews

Comments: I am up to about 200 miles in these and I love this shoe! It was my first running shoe from adidas and my first shoe with adidas since playing soccer in HS. I have been wearing these for everything from track workouts to half marathons. I have several pairs of running shoes and these have become my go-to pair. I don't think they run a full half-size big, but they are a little roomier in the toe compared with shoes by other brands in the same size.

Comments: I love the Adidas Tempo 5. I use them mostly for speed work at the track and races up to half marathon distance. After around 13 miles, I find that the lack of cushioning does lead to the ball of my foot being sore. The thin upper is great. I have trouble with the tongue of the shoe sliding over beside my foot in other shoes, but not in these. I disagree with the "sizing" listed on here, I wear the same size in these as all my other running shoes (shoefitr does give the correct size).
