I generally don’t write full posts about shoe sales (not sure how I feel about doing this more often – is it helpful to be alerted of these things?), but I got an email from adidas today indicating that they would be running a 20% off sale from September 7 to September 14. This discount applies to any running shoe sold on adidas.com (includes free shipping on orders over $50), including one of my current favorite shoes, the adidas adipure Gazelle (see red shoe above).
I reviewed the Gazelle a few weeks ago, and have since put a bunch more miles on it – it’s honestly one of the best shoes I’ve run in for a long time. Super comfortable, flexible, and just enough cushion for running both long and fast on the roads – durability after 50+ miles has been great. With the discount, the $100 price tag drops to $80, which isn’t too bad for a running shoe these days. I also just received a pair of the 8mm drop adidas Motion (see blue shoe above), which is also part of the “natural running series.” The Motion is also incredibly comfortable, and I suspect it might become my top pick as a mild step-down shoe for someone moving away from traditional 12mm drop shoes – stay tuned for a review!.
