Adidas Women’s Rockadia - Product Review

Editor's Rating: (3.6 / 5)

Pros

  • Super lightweight
  • Good traction in the outsole
  • Molded foam footbed for added comfortable fit on your foot
  • Mesh uppers offer lots of ventilation

Cons

  • Constant heel rubbing
  • Stiff feel

Our Take:

The Adidas Performance Women’s Rockadia W Trail Runner will offer you really good support for a lightweight running shoe on or off the trail.

The uppers include a durable mesh and synthetic textile materials for ventilation and toughness.

There’s also a padded tongue and collar for added comfort around your ankle.

They feel very light on your feet and offer great traction on the bottom of the sole.

Surprisingly good traction on the sole, you can feel confident taking these off-road and even dealing with a little street ice.

You also get good arch support and room in the toe box along with a molded foam footbed.

We did find these to be a bit stiff but felt with a little time to break them in you can get some more comfort.

They also tend to rub the back of your heel a little more than we like so be prepared to ditch your low cut socks for something a bit higher.
