Adidas Adizero XT4

I haven’t got my hands on my pair of these yet but I am very keen to get them and have a go. Hopefully I will have these down in Capetown for my jaunts whilst on Hliday. I am seriously excited about that, hwever that’s another story..

I may seem obsessed by shoes but hey, I am constantly searching for a bit of a holy grail shoe, and although I know one shoe will never fit all the terrain, and I need some super aggressive Inov8 shoes for the steep fells, I keep seeking a good inbetweener to plug the gap between the North Face Hayasa and the Inov8 / Sportiva Vertical K..

Here is a review from Irunfar.com of the Adizero XT4

These could be the shoe!! They have more grip than the Salomon Crossmax so better on muddier trails and a bit more padding / cushioning than the TNF Hayasa’s and a bit more grip – in fact 7mmm of continental rubber lumpy bits to dig into those muddy trails and also a bit of underfoot cushioing for the rocky bits too….

They are not too minimal and still light and the drop from heel to forefoot is 6mm so they will be an easier shoe for someone who is not completely transitioned to running in flat shoes but wants light and fast and increased  ground feel and neutral, whilst still having some cushioning… They should  keep my feet protected whilst maintaining stability…We shalll see

I will be using them and then write a preliminary review of them probablly after my Cape Town Trip….

By the way, I had a good 9 km blast along the dirt road back to Palma this evening as a hard tempo session. a km warm up and then pushing it on the pace for a 37 minute run, short but hard, before my colleague pickedd me up in the works vehicle on the way to a brief safety meeting
