Adidas Marathon 10

First run today with the brand new Adidas Marathon 10. I didn't know what to expect from this shoe really when I order it, is it going to be more like a sneaker or is a real running shoe. The answer is, yes indeed, the marathon 10 is a great performance trainer and it has a great old school look with fabulous colors.
The review will be more complete after a couple of weeks as today's run was only covered 4 miles. Marathon 10 is definitely in the race to become my Boston shoe......
More to come.....

Another run with the marathon 10. Yesterday I took out the shoes for a 8 mile run, very hilly. As the shoe is very low built to the ground, it felt like the Adipren didnt manage to offer the support and cushioning I'm looking for in a Marathon shoe. I might be the feeling you're looking for in a racing flat, but as the Marathon 10 is a preformance trainer it didnt do the job. Today my ancles are sore and my old ITB's started to come back.
I was looking for more responsivness but the Marathon 10 had a flat affect, and the it was not really flexible.
The layout of the the shoe is minimalistic and do not offer minimal support, I had actually problems with the heel, wich felt to low, the feeling was that the shoe was going to come off. At this point I'm dissapointed at Adidas as the old Marathon has a great reputation along runners. Im going to give the shoes more trys, but at this point the Marathon 10 is out of the question as the Boston shoe for me......
