"I love these cloudfoam shoes from Adidas! They fit perfectly, they’re light, perfect from working out, the tongue is built in so it doesn’t move around while you workout. I highly recommend this pattern as well!"
That was my review the day after I bought them. All was fine and well at the gym. After 3 visits to the gym, running on the treadmill for 15 minutes, going 7mph for probably a total of 7 minutes out the 15, and then lifting for 75 minutes, I started to experience severe pain in both of my knees near my MCL. I tried to ignore it, thinking it was just sore muscles from working out. Then started my L ankle pain. It progressively got worse, and eventually I couldn't even walk anymore. I started to assume it was the shoes seeing as there is ZERO support from these shoes. I ended up returning them, and continued to work out wearing different shoes. The damage was done, and things got much much worse. I'm a nurse, so I tried to just ice, take ibuprofen, and rest. That wasn't doing the trick so I went to my nearest urgent care. After 7 x-ray images, I found out I had severe tendinitis and swelling in my L ankle, and both of my knees. Thankfully it wasn't a hairline fracture, which I was thinking it may have been considering how excruciating the pain was. No gym for 2 weeks, ankle wrap, naproxen, rest, and icing was my treatment. Not a fun outcome seeing as I go to the gym 5-6x a week.
IN SUMMARY: Do not buy these shoes if you intend to use them at the gym.
