Adidas Adi Ease Shoe Review

What’s the best way to test a pair of skate shoes? Skate them. Seems like a no-brainer, and it surely is, but there’s a difference between skating a pair of shoes and skating them to truly test their durability. We decided to start wear testing skate shoes in a way that really makes sense. We present to you the 100 kickflip challenge! What’s a better way to see how a shoe breaks in and handles the abrasive caress of your grip tape than just throwing it in the line of fire? If a shoe is looking good after 100 straight kickflips, then we’re guessing it deserves a spot on your feet.

Today we’re testing the quintessential Adidas skate shoe: the Adi Ease. There’s a reason why this is one of Adidas’ most popular skate models and our test proved it. After 100 kickflips we barely made a dent in the upper, and the toe of the outsole only lost a little bit of texture. All in all it was like they weren’t even touched. This is your cue to buy a pair and do 1,000 kickflips in them and let us know how they do!
