Adidas Adistar Control - Road Runners: Review

Motion-control shoes have a rep for feeling big and clunky, but this agile cruiser defies the stereotype. The key component is the detached heel-strike pad, which moves independently of the rest of the midsole. The design isolates shock absorption from the rest of the shoe and stops mild pronation in its tracks. Even though it's a midweight shoe with thick cushioning, the snug fit and soft flex make it more nimble than you'd expect.

Bonus: The plushly padded heel pocket increases rear-foot comfort.

Bummer: Severe overpronators might need more motion control. 12 oz;
