The Duramo 6 also boasts flex grooves in the underfoot, a feature that was not present in its predecessor. The grooves provide a free natural movement and great traction. The shoe is quite responsive, thanks to the anatomically designed foot bed, facilitating a soft and smooth transition between the toe off and the heal strike.

On the upper body, a mesh design ensures air movement in and out the shoe, preventing your Adidas-Duramo-6-2feet from sweating even in hot weather. Synthetic overlays come in handy to provide structured support.

Comfort and stability

One noticeable feature in the Duramo 6 is the full length ADIPRENE+ in the midsole. Apparently, this technology delivers more comfort by providing more cushioning and rebound. Moreover, the midsole feature an EVA polymer that forms the rubber foam part in the midsole. Not only is EVA more comfortable than other synthetic materials used to make the midsole, but also lighter and more eco-friendly.

Weight of the shoe

Two factors conflict here, weight versus durability. In most cases, the lightest shoes get light but compromise on their durability. The Adidas Duramo 6 is designed for durability, rather than weight, balancing the overall performance of the shoe. The men’s version weights approximately 270 grams while the women’s version weighs around 250 grams.
