Why It’s a Great Forefoot Running Shoe
Like the Vibram Five Fingers, the Adipure is an excellent forefoot running shoe because it is ergonomically correct — no arch support and they allow your toes to spread.
The Adipure are also very lightweight, similar the Vibram’s, maybe even lighter. The toe sockets are also perforated at the top which helps cool your toes as well. The material in between the toes is neoprene, adding more breathability to the shoe.
Other notable features of the Adipure:
- Fits and flexes perfectly with your foot
- Wide toe-sockets
- Durable on any terrain
- No-marking rubber outsole
- Optimal barefoot-feel
- Super Flexible
- Anecdotal reports suggests they help shin splints and back pain
- Dries quick
- Upper mesh is very breathable, great for summer runs
Overall, to achieve your full potential in terms of optimizing your biomechanics, you need to be completely aware of how your foot interacts with the ground, and the Adipure makes this happen. You’ll notice a significant difference in your foot and ankle strength in the Adipure because they deliver the barefoot experience, too.

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
