Editor's Notes

June 14, 2020:

Adidas boasts a pretty big catalogue, and one of our main focuses in revisiting this ranking was making sure it was up to date with that selection. The Powerlift 3.1 from our previous list, for example, has been upgraded to the Powerlift 4, which replaced the older model's synthetic leather upper with canvas, providing a greater deal of comfort against the top of the foot if and when it rises against it during certain lifts.

We also saw fit to replace the Tech Response 4.0WD with the slightly more modern Codechaos Golf. The Tech Response features a half dozen cleats along the sole, where the Codechaos utilizes a more comfortable spikeless design that places a dedicated traction pad beneath the ball of the foot running toward the big toe. This is preferable for a number of reasons, not least of all the fact that most high-end spiked golf shoes will offer eight cleats, and also because spikeless models are easier for walking the course.

Of course, there's also a great variety for runners here, but make sure you know what kind of runs you're planning, as something like the Terrex Two Ultra Parley are intended for trail runners, with Continental soles that might not be as comfortable on pavement, and that would wear down too quickly on such a surface, anyway.
