The problem in the design of the 3G is the top strap of the slide sandal. On the 3G, they shortened the width of the strap, slightly moved it forward, and took out the extended curvature that brought the strap to the mid arch of the foot. What will happen with the 3G is that your foot slides as you walk since the strap is not holding your foot in place. This sliding causes improper pronation and will hurt your foot, ankle, knee, and even the hip. Most people will desist using it before this happens. There a couple of reviews where this has been pointed out. The 2G prevented this from happening because of the extension of the strap going back to the mid arch of the foot.
The quality and finish of the 3G remains outstanding. I would buy 4 pair of the 2G in an instant. It is not available ANYWHERE - even at Adidas.com.
I rarely would write a review, but I am hoping that someone at Adidas reads it and either brings back the 2G or modifies the strap on the 3G to make it identical to the 2G. Adidas seems to have followed the Nike design on the slide which in my opinion would create the same problems.
Both generations of slides have been used entirely indoors and until recently, always on carpeting. It is surprising that the 2G slide soles exhibited significant wear on the soles within a few years of use. While only time will tell how durable the new version is, the soles are equally as soft. Oddly, and somewhat counterintuitive, both generations exhibit poor traction on new laminate flooring. The problem is dramatically worse with the slightest amount of dust. The problem partially lies with the floor material but the slipping isn't nearly as bad with traditional cross trainers or even dress shoes.
Overall, the Adidas 3G slides are well-made and comfortable. The Velcro flap accommodates wide feet and remains firmly attached, which is a welcome improvement.
