If you feel that bulky running shoes are holding you back with unnecessary weight, you'll definitely want to consider the adidas adiPure Gazelle. From the upper to the outsole, these runners are built with quickness and feeling in mind. The PureMotion outsole mimics the reaction time and natural flex of a runner's bare foot, while the upper's second-skin layer corresponds with the foot's natural motion, furthering the minimal feel. An Adiwear outsole keeps things durable, ensuring that you'll get ample miles out of these runners.
