The Adidas Galactic Elite - yes a somewhat futuristic, sci-fi theme, name - is a shoe that is suitable for a wide range of fitness pursuits: gym workouts, hiking, walking, jogging, middle distance running, and indoor sports.
The shoe is obviously not suitable for sports like football, due to the shoe's fabric upper; highlighted in the image above / right. Adidas state that the fabric upper is 'breathable', due to the holes woven into the fabric, and this in turn lowers the amount of sweat and odor produced by the wearer. The outersole of the shoe features Adiwear: which Adidas claims is a highly durable and non-marking rubber - making the shoe ideal for indoor sports like Badminton. The midsole of the shoe features adiPRENE+: this is a relatively modern Adidas technology that aims to improve on the cushioning ability of previous midsole materials, like EVA. The shoe also features a padded ankle collar and tongue; which is an indication that the Galactic Elite is designed for comfort rather than for fashionwear. All Adidas shoes are designed with a purpose, and the Galactic Elite is no exception: it is comfortable and lightweight.
