My old pair of shoes was drastically falling apart, so I decided that it was time for a new pair. My old shoes were also Adidas and lasted a very long time (just over a year, in fact). In addition, I work at a go-kart track, so I'm constantly running around and pushing heavy objects, and therefore I needed a light pair of shoes that were capable of proper traction that I need to do my job. I decided on this pair of shoes in particular because they were relatively cheap and offered a comfortable fit on my foot for sprinting short distances; the grip position on the sole of the shoe provides the perfect amount of traction in just the right spots for me to push go-karts, amongst other objects, as well. The day after I purchased them, they held up under 14 hours of work and I barely noticed a scratch on them.
I would advise against running very long distances in this shoe as it doesn't offer as much support for long-term running, like other shoes would. Instead, I would contend that these shoes are most sturdy for the casual and light runner, or are to be used as walking shoes. Not that fashion was a purchasing factor in my final decision, but this particular pair of shoes bears a strange color scheme and design that doesn't seem to fit with very much; strangely enough, though, it fits my work uniform color scheme incredibly.
To recap, the Watkins Adidas running shoes were incredibly cheap for what I bought them for. If you're a long distance runner, I'd give these shoes a second thought before deciding to purchase them. Now if you're looking for shoes that will offer comfortable casual wear and possibly some light jogging, then this shoe will satisfy you. In summary, this shoe is low in cost for such a high value from comfort, stability, and performance.
