More bounce to the ounce
Adidas Megabounce+: Almost-foamless shoe using clear urethane doughnuts as shock absorbers. Some forefoot foam.
Likes: So fun it makes you feel young again. Pronounced bounce upon a heel or midfoot landing seems to aid forward momentum.
Mesh upper and roomy toe box provide a very balanced, comfortable fit.
Dislikes: On long runs, the bounce fades from memory as the 14-ounce heft takes a toll.
Price: $120. (800) 448-1796; www.shopadidas.com.
