Endorsed by Katy Perry, David Beckham, Lionel Messi, and Derrick Rose, the new Adidas CLIMACOOL Seduction running shoes offer a 360-degree ventilated running experience for improved performance and what is being called - Adidas's coolest ride yet! The new ventilation channels across the outsole in conjunction with the ClimaCool material on the upper of the shoe is said to evaporate sweat, keep temperatures within the shoe low and provide ventilation from all sides. Early last week we were presented with a pair of our very own CLIMACOOL Seduction shoes for testing and review. Once they arrived we were off and running... literally!

Comfort: (9.5 out of 10) Straight out of the box these are some of the most comfortable running shoes I've ever slipped on. Though once you've laced them up and take the time to break them in, they feel even better!
Design: (9 out of 10) Shoes must look good for people to buy them, Adidas knows this as well as anyone, and from the images above you can tell by now that these running shoes aren't lacking any amount of style. That's quite obvious! The design aspect we're most impressed by is the 360-degree cooling technology. Let me first say, IT WORKS! This shoe is basically all mesh, holes, and laces. Yet somehow provides excellent support along the way. A byproduct of all the ventilation Adidas has incorporated into the CLIMACOOL Seduction is that these shoes are incredibly light weight as well.
Durability: (9 out of 10) The materials from which these shoes are produced from are high quality. The CLIMACOOL mesh is thin, but strong and is held together with quality stitching. After putting more than 20 miles on our pair we're confident they'll stand up many miles of pavement crushing punishment.
Ventilation: (10 out of 10) Whether you're pushing pavement for miles upon miles or chilling in the back yard on a hot day, these shoes flat out do not give your feet have an opportunity to sweat. Each shoe has hundreds of tiny ventilation holes, these holes provide air flow to every inch of your foot. To increase ventilation... run faster! One drawback to the extreme ventilation of these running shoes that we experienced first hand is their susceptibility to water. Running on wet ground will without a doubt get your feet wet. On the upside.. they won't take long to dry!
Value: (8.5 out of 10) The CLIMACOOL Seduction offers a very good value at $100. They're packed with exclusive technology you don't see everyday and are backed by one of the biggest athletic apparel manufactures in the world who also offer a 30 day money-back guarantee if you're not satisfied.
The Bottom Line: The Adidas CLIMACOOL Seduction surprised us. They're comfortable, lightweight, highly ventilated, and down right sexy... so why were we surprised? It's not often a product is exactly what we expected, but this time we're happily surprised! If you're an active person who is looking for your next pair or running shoes we suggest you seek out the CLIMACOOL Seduction from Adidas. Your feet will thank you. No need to thank us!
