Oh I love the colors of these shoes (that is what matters, right?!). You mention the versatility of these shoes. Would you recommend that these shoes be worn during particular times? Particular sports? 

I run a lot, would these be acceptable for running?                                                                                                          

Thanks so much for sharing!



Hi Ciara,

Thanks for leaving a comment,

If I owned the Adidas Continental 80 I will only use it for walking around or just for casual use. It can look adorable in a nice part shirt and jeans outfit.

I may use it for short distant run. I would not expect it to do very well when it comes to performance.

I recommend the Ultra Boost for long distant and comfortable run.


The Adidas continental 80 looks like an awesome footwear. You mentioned a video and I would have really loved to see it in this post but you just provided the youtube link. The shoe definitely looks nice and for the negative reviews offered I think those are just everyone’s opinions especially those complaining the shoe is too narrow. 

If it is narrow for some people then it must mean that it is too big for others. One person’s disadvantage is another person’s advantage. There is no way a product can please everyone.

So, in my opinion, this is a really nice footwear and the color options are extremely nice.


Hey Jay,

I’ve just seen how bad the post look. I recently made an adjustment so it kind of changed the structure of the post. I will resolve it as soon as possible.

Thanks for pointing it out.


I love adidas sneakers, one of the best in the world for me. The good thing about Adidas shoes is that, they really last, I kept one for 5 years once. And it was still a nice pair of shoes. I love it because of the quality and the comfort. Above all it is because of the design. I like simple and classy shoes. And your article is very informative. The details of the item are well underlined. But how do I purchase it? Should I go back to amazon and search for it? Thanks
