Adidas Adipower Stabil 11 Men

HELLO GORGEOUS. This is the Adidas Adipower Stabil 11. We’ll be seeing a lot of this guy, seeing as the Adidas Adipower Stabil range has been muy popular over the years.

In the Adidas range of court shoes, these Adidas Adipower Stabil 11s sit at the top — above the Adidas Court Stabil 11, which is in turn above the Adidas Essence 11.

The three shoes all look pretty similar, so I created a free one-page PDF for my email subscribers that shows you all the shoes together so you can tell them apart a bit easier:

Martin pointed out in the comments that this shoe has a black sole. While I haven’t seen these on the court yet, I am 97.6% confident that these are non-marking soles, because they are handball shoes and because all prior shoes in the Adidas Adipower Stabil line have been non-marking indoor court shoes. Also the black version of this shoe has the “traditional” gum-rubber colored sole.

Check out this one in Qatar’s colors. Apparently it’s a limited edition model celebrating the 2015 world handball championships, held in Qatar. Thanks to Jason Hua for the tip.

    Hi Pierre always used adidas but these seems to have black soles would you think that these shoes would mark the floor of the court?

    • Pierre Bastien says

      Hi Martin, thanks for pointing this out! I am sure these are non-marking. I have added a bit more info above in the post.

    Just tested them,

    Great shoes – Great cushioning and support, better made than the stabil 10 I think: less seams on the toe box will lead to less failure there.

    HOWEVER…The flap for the last lace hole is noticeably higher than before. As a result, the underside of my ankle bone has essentially had the skin sanded off! Very unpleasant. High tabs couples with firm build and rough material has been damn painful.

    Best shoe I’ve used if it softens up, very unfortunate if not!

    • Pierre Bastien says

      Update from James:

      Unfortunately they are still pretty much as problematic 2 months on! Despite use at least 5 or 6 days a week, and even putting them in the washing machine to try soften them up, they are still gouging chunks out of my ankle.

      It’s shame, as the rest of the shoe is fantastic. However, whether it’s worth the hassle of applying bandages and padding every time I’m not sure! If they weren’t so expensive, I’d have given up a long time ago!

      Interestingly, I noticed during the world champs that a couple of players (Alan Clyne to name one) were using the mid range version (Court Stabil) which I believe has lower tabs. Similarly, Ramy wears the mid range version fo the previous model, so this is possibly and ongoing problem.

        Hi Pierre ,

        I have just seen your comment regarding the Court Stabil shoe and the issue regarding your anklebone .

        I have recently purchased a pair of these shoes and I also have the same issue with this shoe.

        I am very disappointed as the shoe feels great in all other areas except for the High tabs .


        I wanted to ask you if you think its worth taping the ankle in order to use this shoe?

        Its a lot of money to spend on this shoe and since I cant return them as they have been used , I just wanted to get your opinion on this.

        Has anyone else had this issue?


    • Rod Foster says

      Agreed on the high tabs. i end up wearing a bit taller sock

      overall great shoe and very durable and very comfortable.

      • Ben says

        +1 here. I just purchased a pair of stabil 11s and wore them on the court for the first time tonight. When I finished the match, I realized that the right shoe had rubbed off the skin on the inside part of my ankle. Not ideal. I’ll have to try again with higher socks, but if that doesn’t work I’ll likely be forced to try another shoe.

        • Ben says

          Update – I finally gave up on these shoes. The rubbing was driving me crazy and I went back to Salming. Won’t look back.

    • mike says

      I just bought a pair of these in the white/blue/silver colours and have not experience any issues with the lace hole and ankle contact. I even wear socks below the ankle and have not had any problems at all. Easy break in and an overall great shoe.

  3. Rod Foster says

    Just purchased these from the adidas site as well.

    Kind of tough to find them as they were listed under the volleyball section for shoes.

    Alas, these beauties are on their way.

    I’ll give them about 5-6 times on the court and report back on:

    size fitting; comfort, grip, durability (for the most part) and weight (I hate a heavy/clunky shoe)

    • Rod Foster says

      My Review:

      I’ve played on these shoes for about 10-11 hours and I can honestly say I’m in love with them!!!

      The sizing is true–they’re a tighter fit but not in a bad way. No wiggle per se and the construction of these shoes is top notch. A little on the heavy side, but i feel that will help in their durability. Compared to other court shoes i’ve had (all asics) i really love the grip of the sole and the again, the construction just makes for a very durable and sure landing on the court.

      All in all, I would recommend these shoes to anyone that would want to try them.

    I had problems with the stabil10 so have ordered the 11,

    I have had to get custom made inserts for my shoes, I had no problem with the stabil 9. gone back to using the stabile 9 until the stabile 11 arrives

    The inserts lift the heel a little

    • Pierre Bastien says

      Thanks John, I added the link for you :)

      Interesting, I am in the market for some socks, may give those a try.

  5. Franck says

    I bought the Adipower Stabil 11, good cushioning, very good grip but the flap for the last lace hole is really high positioned, quite painful for the ankle. After 5 minutes I’ve decided to wear them without fastening completely. I’ve tea
    Unfortunately after 2 months (I usually play 3/4 times a week) the gum rubber toe box of the sole completely detached. Impossible to repair it. Incredible for shoes with that price

  6. Yann says

    Bought those 2 weeks ago in white/blue/silverish, sent them back the day after, I thought I had reasonably wide feet but these shoes clearly made me feel like a hobbit in a pair of Louboutin, God that was painful.
    So I found and bought a pair of Mizuno Lightning RX (not in production anymore but the Bolt 4 are the equivalent in today’s line up) and that was perfect.
