The all-new adidas Supernova is designed for everyday and entry-level runners as well as those who enjoy easy running, providing comfort for their feet and the mind.
After being told for years that nothing good happens in the comfort zone and that results can only be achieved by pushing out of it, the new adidas Supernova is set to change the game.
The new shoe is designed to help new runners embrace their comfort zones. discover the joys of running and make it a long-term habit.
No pain, no gain? Think again
“For years, people have advocated the “no pain no gain” philosophy when it comes to training, and that progress can only come from breaking out of your comfort zone,” said Dr. Stephen Seiler, professor of sport science at the University of Agder.
“But carefully studying the best runners in the world has taught us that running in your comfort zone should be an essential part of endurance training, whether you’re an elite athlete or complete beginner. Running at this low, easy intensity is essential for making exercise a sustainable habit, achieving consistency and longevity in endurance training, and finding the joy in running.”
Benefit from the comfort zone
Runners of all abilities can benefit from and improve their performances by staying in the comfort zone.
Training within your comfort zone not only helps runners to establish a sustainable habit, but it can also help them develop confidence in their running.

- Comfort meets energy: The precisely balanced mix of bounce and boost in the midsole is designed to deliver comfort and energy return with every stride.
- Padded tongue & heel: The new padded tongue and heel construction delivers a comfortable feeling from the outset.
