The women of WearTesters grabbed the new adidas Falcon for a review.
Dad shoes are being forced down our throats in 2018 but it doesn’t feel like it’s a trend that everyone is disliking — at least not in our little pocket of California.
adidas recently partnered with Kylie Jenner and released the Falcon, a re-interpretation of adidas’ Falcon Dorf from the ’90s. The new silhouette is comprised of premium suedes, mesh, and a chunky EVA midsole.
Surprisingly, all of these “dad shoes” are very comfortable despite lacking any real cushioning technology from any brand; whether it’s Under Armour’s Forge 96 or Nike’s M2K Tekno, the EVA used within each model offers slight bounce for all-day comfort.
The women of WearTesters felt the adidas Falcon was the best bang-for-your-buck “dad shoe” because it retails for $100 and features premium material overlays that the Nike M2K Tekno lacks. Under Armour offers similar features but at the $120 price point (you can learn more by checking out the video below).
