Does the Yeezy Foam Runner Fit True To Size?

Yeezy Foam Runners tend to run true to size although they lean towards fitting a little large. They’re only available in full sizes – no half size options are available. If you fall between sizes and cannot get the correct size for you, we recommend sizing down to get the best fit.
Due to their open Croc-esque styling, there’s plenty of room inside the Foam Runners. The mix of algae-based and EVA foam is soft, comfortable and supportive. Your feet will sink into the footbed as you walk, creating more space. And if your heel or toes do rub against the shoes, the foam is so gentle it shouldn’t even mark your skin!
Are Yeezy Foam Runners Comfortable?

Yes. The Yeezy Foam Runners are some of the most comfortable shoes on the market. The analogy to Crocs isn’t far out. They’re practical, comfortable, soft and supportive. However, unlike Crocs the Foam Runners always feel secure.
The footbed cradles you as you walk, creating a feeling of stability that is shocking to many first time users. The overall fit can be a little snug at first – especially if you go down half a size – but the shoes stretch out and mould to your feet fast.
The upper is covered in holes that keep your feet well ventilated. This means, unless you’re walking through some extreme conditions, your feet should never overheat while wearing Yeezy Foam Runners.
Can I Drive In Yeezy Foam Runners?
The quick answer is that it’s up to you.
Yeezy Foam Runners are quite wide and very well padded. For cars with pedals close together, this can cause problems. Accidentally pressing the accelerator and brake at the same time often ends badly!
The Foam Runners are also very cushioned which reduces sensory feedback from the pedals. This can exacerbate the issue of pressing two pedals at once.
However, the bevelled heel on these shoes makes it very easy to roll your foot on and off the gas smoothly. So if your pedals are far apart and you’re a very confident driver, why not give them a go?
Is the Foam Runner Good For Running?
Yeezy’s Foam Runner features far too much cushioning to be an effective running sneaker. Sensory feedback from the ground is so reduced that you’re likely to end up with an injury if you run in these shoes.
They also lack the support of running shoes and don’t provide enough traction to keep you safe while exercising – especially if it’s wet out.
And even if they had the right cushioning and support for running, the Yeezy Foam Runners are just too big and clunky. You’re likely to trip over your own feet and end up with an injury if you use Foam Runners as your go-to running shoe!
How Do I Clean Yeezy Foam Runners?
Adidas Yeezy Foam Runner shoes are super easy to clean. The most effective way of doing so is with a bowl of warm soapy water and a soft cloth. Simply wipe the wet cloth over the shoes, spending more time rubbing the dirty areas. Then rinse the shoes off and leave them to dry.
There’s no need to use a washing machine or dryer as these can cause damage if not done correctly. There’s also a chance you can shrink the shoes by submerging them in water that’s too hot!
What Are Yeezy Foam Runners For?
It’s tough to determine whether Yeezy Foam Runners serve a purpose beyond fashion.
Sure, they’re hyper comfortable and very durable but the usability is overshadowed by the shoe’s aesthetics.
As long as you want people to look at you, or at the very least don’t mind people looking at you, Yeezy Foam Runners are a nice all-round shoe.
However, if you prefer to fly under the radar, these shoes are not for you. Sure, they’re comfortable and supportive but they also attract knowing stares wherever you go.
