If you've been considering jumping into the world of barefoot running but are concerned about the cushioning offered in some of the styles, you'll want to check out the adidas Adipure Adapt. Built with a Techfit-based second-skin upper, these runners provide a natural ride, protected by soft, full-length Adiprene cushioning. The Adiwear outsole has been equipped with Puremotion, which is strategically designed to perform similarly to a runner's bare foot. At 4.8 oz, these runners are just about as close as you'll get to not wearing sneakers at all.
