Best Adidas shoes for Men who land on their midfoot

Adidas, along with its cross-town rival Puma, has been making running shoes for decades. Their latest shoes, thanks to the company's patented Boost technology, are some of its best ever and some of the best on the market. As the company grows, it continues to employ groundbreaking technology, design great looking shoes, and have many of the world's best sport the three stripes.

From Chi-Running to natural running, many run coaches have been touting the benefit of midfoot running over the past decade. Midfoot running means landing on the center of your foot--not the front (forefoot) or back (heel). Many advocates say this is the natural way to run, and the way humans would be running if our stride wasn't corrupted by hard pavement and clunky shoes. However, because not all running shoes tailor to midfoot runners, people who land in the middle of their foot have to find the right shoe meant for this type of stride.
