Since 2002, CLIMACOOL series running shoes has become one of the preferred shoes for many runners in Summer. Beckham also loves the CLIMACOOL series running shoes. He cooperates with Adidas and participatory design the jointly signed limited 4509 pairs of CLIMACOOL series D.B. running shoes.
Today, I want to talk about the performance of newest CLIMACOOL series running shoes.
The Bounce insole is softer and more elastic.
The unit weight of EUR43 left shoe is about 280g, and right shoe is about 287g. It’s already very light for running shoes.
Comparing the Adidas UltraBOOST 19 and Adidas CLIMACOOL M, it’s lighter than the newest Boost series and previous CLIMACOOL series.
Shoe Head, Vamp
It has three layers of ventilated mesh vamp. A large area of shoe head uses soft knitted mesh vamp. It’s soft. The soft plastic on the vamp near to the lacing system can offer some support. The hollow out logo is ventilated design.
Comparing my other Adidas running shoes, the ventilated area of Adidas CLIMACOOL series is bigger, and the vamp is thinner.
Comparing with Adidas CLIMACOOL, the pull-tab of 2019 Adidas CLIMACOOL series running shoes is changed from shoe heel to shoe tongue. The design of shoe heel looks more beautiful.
Actually, the built-in TPU reinforcement on the shoe heel is also cancelled.
It makes reinforcement from insole to vamp.
Insole & Outsole
Adidas CLIMACOOL series always use Bounce technology. It’s enough for daily wearing. The Bounce of newest Adidas CLIMACOOL series should have been adjusted, it is softer than previous series.
The outsole keeps the same shoe shape as previous generations. But it changes the sole grain and increase the reinforcement on the outside of shoe head and shoe heel.
After disclosing the shoe-pad, we can see the special insole ventilated design of CLIMACOOL series. I’d like to call it as breather valve.
The shoe-pad is different with previous series. The weight of shoe-pad is obviously reduced, the new one is about 21g, and the previous generations is 34g.
The air holes of shoe-pad is also different. It has big and small sizes of air holes. The thickness of shoe-pad is also thicker than previous series. Overall, the improved shoe-pad can increase the cushion performance and ventilated effect.
Shoelaces & Anti-torsion
Adidas CLIMACOOL uses the similar flat shoelaces as Adidas UltraBOOST 19.
Although the extending area of TPU plate for anti-torsion performance is decreased, but it doesn’t have big effect.
Overall Comment: 8.6 scores
Advantages: It assures the air permeability. It makes many improvement, such as the breather valve design of arch on the outsole, the softer Bounce and thicker shoe-pad etc. Both of the appearance, safety and cushion performance has been upgraded. It has high cost performance.
Disadvantages: It doesn’t have 3M reflective light. It’s not so safe if running in the night. The shoe tongue can’t be fixed well. It’s easy to off tracking.
Overall, the professional sports brand makes the excellent running shoes and casual shoes for Summer. Most of my friends like the Climacool series running shoes. It’s a pair of necessary running shoes in Summer. The most attracting part of Adidas Climacool series to me is the outsole and omnibearing ventilated vamp.
