Testers loved this shoe's aggressive lug pattern, which struck every footfall even on the sloppiest days, offering the best traction of any shoe we tested. The Adizero has excellent lateral support, thanks to a solid upper and a durable outsole. Its 6mm heel-to-toe drop is a nice compromise for those just getting into minimalism. Weight: 9.6 ounces.
