Additional Information Debuting in January 2012, the ClimaCool Fresh Ride features a layered mesh-on-mesh upper of adidas’ proprietary ClimaCool® design, which offers maximum breathability. Reviewer Greg May of TrulyOutdoors.com wrote that one could “feel the wind on your feet through the shoes.” Its COOLEVER lining features a clover-shaped yarn that manages heat and moisture, reducing discomfort and increasing performance. Flexible as well as breathable, the ClimaCool Fresh Ride touts an anatomical fit to provide comfort during aggressive runs. The low profile offered by adiPRENE®+ in the forefoot caters to propelling the foot forward through the stride. May, the reviewer, noted that the ClimaCool Fresh Ride are “impressively flexible” but that they still lend enough support to please anyone seeking that from minimalist-inspired footwear.
