adidas Product Report

Shoes:


Response
Light-weight and provided a bit of support.
I found these shoes rubbed on the back of my heel.

Supernova
I really liked the additional cushioning in the forefoot.
Very contouring to my feet.
Great support and torsion system for mid-foot support.
Excellent lightweight shoe.
Allowed me to move foot and shoe as a unit.
Heel wore down fairly quickly.
Favorite shoe of all of them.
Used in training on treadmill for Honolulu Marathon 98
and in the Glencoe Ice Breaker 10K

RaTS Racer
A great racing flat as it provided me with a fast feeling.
For a racing flat, it is a well-cushioned and supportive shoe.
Super light-weight.
Used in two races:
Run, Walk and Roll 10K -finished in 39:25.
Jasper-Banff Relay- passed all the runners ahead of me.

Gazelle
Light and cushioned in forefoot
I really like the snug forefoot.
Very flexible and an overall comfortable shoe.

Piedmont
Slightly heavier than the Supernova, this shoe provided good medial support.
Good cushioning.
Glove-like fit.
Used it to run the Vancouver Marathon 99
Hope to use the Piedmont to run the 1999 Honolulu Marathon


Clothing:

Flow Singlet
Wicks perspiration away
Love the length
No chaffing due to the 50/50 microfibre mesh double knit.
Reflective logo is a plus.

Flow Shorts
Perfect breathing ability.
Love the inside pocket to carry change for a coke.
Not too sure about the racer cut.

Oslo Jacket
Excellent venting and breathable jacket.
Love the colour and design.

Falmouth Shortsleeve
1/2 zip top
I love this shirt
Perfect to wear on most light to moderate runs.
Provides a great cover after a run.

Drizzle Jersey II
I love this top.
It has excellent breathing ability yet being waterproof makes it a bonus top.
Excellent wind protection and keeps you warm.
Love this design and cut too.

3 Stripe Energy Sport Bra
Excellent support and looks great without a shirt.
Coolmax allows it to be breathable and the mesh helps to keep cool on the upper back.
Double stitch on front above the breast line could cause chaffing if Vaseline not applied.

Astro Pants
Great to wear during activity and even afterwards.
Provides comfort and is breathable.
I really like the lower leg zipper and elastic bottom.

Gazelle Running Glasses
Secure fit -stays on face without flopping or slipping.
Bonus to be supplied with amber and clear lenses.
Used during Vancouver Marathon 99 (grey sky and pouring rain)
final 10K glasses were placed on top of head and stayed put.
Glasses are very protective.


Overall, I am very impressed with all the products that adidas has provided for me. I feel privileged in wearing these products. Thanks to adidas for allowing me to be part of this incredible experience.
