Adidas vs Nike? Which is better?

17Aug08

Adidas vs Nike, which is better? In my personal opinion, Adidas shoes are better. I was using the Nike Free 7.0 for BodyJam and every time after class, my knees and feet will hurt. A month ago, I changed to the Adidas Bounce and I noticed the pain is gone. The cushioning in the Adidas Bounce is really good compared to Nike Free and the shoe comes with an additional pair of insoles in case the first one gets damaged. There is a downside to this shoe, it’s not cheap! It cost RM529 a pair. I’ve been told the Adidas customized shoes are even better as it measures your feet and determines the best form of cushioning. The shoe will cost RM600-700 depending on design. Guess price should not be an issue when it comes to health.

    Hi there, I was attracted by the tittle of “Addidas vs Nike, Which is better”…very interesting subject :)

    I am a big fan of Nike, so I like Nike products and their technology. For this case I wouldn’t say Addidas is not good, but I would rather choose to tell the Nike Free technology :P

    Nike Free is a running shoe and its simulates barefoot running while wearing a shoe. As its allows the muscles in the feet to gain strength by providing less constriction and its also help to strengthen calf and foot muscles.Runner are advised to gradually break into the shoe rather than immediately running long distances as to prevent muscle cramps and other discomfort.This is especially true for amateurs, as Nike Free shoes do not provide as much cushion and shock absorption as the traditional running shoes. The main technology behind the Nike Free is the compressed EVA midsole, which has deep cuts along the entire length so that it bends and moves along with your foot – therefore mimicking running barefoot.

    I personally like Nike Free very much, especially the weight and the flexibility. I have the same problem when I first wearing it, but its all good now :) and am planning to buy a new pair of Nike Free again.

    I think Nike did not do enough to educate the consumer in this part, eventhough they have good products with great technology. They might need to do something on it ;)

    Kyen – You also agree with me Adidas.

    Paige – Thank you for the explanation. Certainly gave me a better understanding on the Nike Free technology.

  5. You should put your name on the shoe. And also can design your own Adidias shoe.Measure your feet. As your feet size might different.

    Can get from Pavilion.

    Nike Free is nice but hurts my foot. Especially after Bodyjam. No cushioning.

  9. i personally like adidas , because basic is better, i like to colour co-ordinate my clothes ,adidas has alot more variety and more of a selection when it comes to the casual look and i dont feel the need to sacrifice comfort over style because adidas trainers are both comfortable and stylish. i dont wear nike but the only trainers i would wear will be the nike high vantage and the air force 1′s, god bless adidas, london

  10. Nice, thanks for share! lower leg pain

    So sorry for out of the point. If comparing Nike and Addidas I will choose Addidas but after I try Puma shoes I feel more better comparing to this 2 brands. I like Puma because of his design simple and nice. So sorry again for out of the topic.
