The adidas Adizero Takumi Sen 10 Running Shoes are built for 5-10k races. Prototypes of these ultra-lightweight adidas running shoes were tested in Iten, Kenya and Ethiopia with elite male and female adidas athletes. Athlete wear testing highlighted a need for increased responsiveness. To achieve this, the Takumi Sen 10 now features EnergyRods 2.0. Unlike the previous version, which had a plate in the heel, and separate rod system in the forefoot, the EnergyRods 2.0 system is one complete heel-to-toe structure. The curved rod system works in tandem with two layers of Lightstrike Pro foam – adidas most resilient foam – to increase midsole stiffness, therefore improving propulsion. The exacting position and shape of the rod system also stabilises the soft Lightstrike Pro foam and aids forward motion. It’s worth noting that the EnergyRods 2.0 system in the Takumi Sen 10 is made from glass-fibre, as opposed to carbon. Even though the Takumi Sen 10 is all about responsiveness, the more flexible nature of glass-fibre should improve the ability to take tight corners at maximum pace. This also means the Takumi Sen 10 should work well for high-speed interval sessions that involve changes of direction. In comparison to the adidas Adizero Adios Pro 3 Running Shoes, the Takumi Sen 10 has a lower stack-height. The thinner midsole and more flexible rod system, makes the Takumi Sen 10 a much better option for shorter distance runs, as they should feel more stable and adaptive to changes in effort. In contrast, the Adios Pro 3 Running Shoes should be the best adidas racing shoes for long distance efforts, such as half-marathons and marathons. Whether you’re racing 5k and 10k events, or looking for ultra responsive running shoes for fast-paced efforts, the adidas Adizero Takumi Sen 10 Running Shoes should be one of the best options.
