First let me say that these do run small. I ordered a pair on another website in my Normal size (I only order from another store because they were running a BOGO 1/2 off and my husband was needing shoes as well). Anyhow, those came in and were way too small. Good thing my daughter could wear them! She loved them and kept them. So came to Zappos to order me a pair. Got them in a different color, I ordered the black and blue for this shoe. This time though, I ordered one size larger...got them today and the fit perfect! So if you've never ordered Adidas shoes before, I would go one size bigger! That's why I rated this felt a full size smaller. The ones from Zappos felt great at a one size bigger than I normally wear. One thing I am disappointed in though. The colors do not match what the website shows. When I first pulled them out of the box, I thought, oh no, they sent me the wrong ones. The picture shows like a Baby Blue on the bottom, then the side stripes and shoe laces to be a darker blue. Not the case. The bottoms are Baby Blue, but the sides and shoe laces are like a Green Blue. To be honest, they aren't all the pretty in these colors. Had I known that's what I would be getting, I wouldn't have ordered these. But! After ordering from another store, waiting a week to get them, then having to order from Zappos, I'm just tired of thinking about shoes. These are very comfortable...I love the soles of them. Almost feels like you are squishing through mud when you walk in them, they just have that much bottom to them. I'm used to shoes with flat soles...so this is super comfy to me! That's why I just kept them, they feel very nice when you walk with them. So, yes, I would buy them again, but only if I could see them in person before buying, because of the color differences between the website and real life.

I don't know why Adidas has changed the size and shape of their running shoes. I tried this pair the thrasher and the clima running shoes both med width which I have worn and fit perfectly for over 20 years. They are now extremely narrow to the point that my feet are not supported because they are hanging off the sides due to the shoes being too narrow. As sad as it makes me, I guess I won't be purchasing Adidas any more, my feet simply are too wide for their new designs. I compared them to two pairs of my old Adidas medium width shoes and they are 3/4 of an inch more narrow, huge difference!

I just got these in...tried them on...and I LOVE them! They are so cushiony and there is plenty of toe room. AND...they have so much grip on the bottom...they should be perfect for my hikes on rocky terrain.

I just bought this shoe as a second pair to the original Thrasher. This version 2 is slightly more padded all around. I run on trails, not pavement, and I want true CUSHIONING!! These are terrific for that! I wear a 7.5 M in other Adidas running shoes, and the fit of these is the same. My previous favorites were the Supernova Riot series of trail shoes which were nicely padded, albeit slightly heavier. LOVE the fit of this shoe, and extremely comfortable for trail running. Great arch support and great cushioning which is a priority for uneven surface trails.

I seriously LOVE this shoe! I love the traction and how perfectly it fits. It's not the heaviest shoe ever but it's also not the lightest. For me though, I would rather have the traction since I run on trails a lot. Great shoe!

Very poor design, especially if you have inserts that you need for plantar fasciitis. The design pushes the inserts forward so they cause a callous to form along with pain in a person's heel.

Every year I order Adidas trail running shoes. these are a little different than others I've had - maybe stiffer? They seem less forgiving then other trail running shoes (a little longer break-in for sure), but really protective, grippy, and stable which will be great for slippery dirt and gravel trails. Overall I think they will be great and good for my feet.

Love this shoe! I purchased the black and blue for daily walking. It looks and feels fantastic. Very sharp looking and comfortable. True to size. Ordered my husband a pair and hope he loves his as much as I do mine. Almost want to buy these in another color!

Love this shoe! I was looking for a stable running shoe for a moderate amount of trail, pavement and treadmill running, 15 to 20 miles per week. I tend to overpronate. They comfortable and light and of good quality. The colors are fun. They do run half a size small.
