Adidas Campus 00s Sizing & On Feet Video Review
Do the Adidas Campus 00s run true to size?
Adidas Campus 00s shoes fit true to size and feel super snug on your feet. Getting your normal size is best as the sneakers take a few wears to break into.
If you have wide or flat feet, I would suggest wearing thinner socks and loosening the laces rather than sizing up.
Adidas Campus 00s On Feet Review
|Feet feel snug, and fit true to size.
|The midsole is slightly firm.
|Two extra sets of laces are provided in the box.
|Suede upper hard to clean
|In the UK Campus 00 trainers retail below £100 ($113)
|Take a few wears to break – toes feel squashed to start.
The Campus 00 fits nicely; the widest width of your foot needs to fit inside the shoe without feeling too tight. Going up a size may cause heel slippage.
What size should you get?
The Campus 00s are wide-fitting trainers from the arch to the heel, with narrow toe box.
Narrow width feet
You may feel like they run big for narrow feet, but just get your normal size and tighten the laces slightly. After wearing them a few times, the shoe will mold to your foot.
Medium width feet
Medium-width feet, the Campus 00s trainers will fit snug on your feet; it’s best to loosen the laces slightly when tied. The tongue is thick and adds extra comfort cushioning.
Wide width feet
They run true to size for wide feet, suggesting you get your regular size. If the sneaker feels too tight, remove the insole and wear without. Just be mindful that you lose some comfort, so pick your socks wisely.
Extra tips for wide feet
- If you have wide feet, the widest part of your foot will likely be pressed against the toe box, which is uncomfortable to start. Loosens after a few wears.
- If your feet are wide, this will probably cause blisters and a bit of soreness.
How to clean Adidas Campus 00s Next Gen
The Adidas Campus 00s are made with a suede and leather upper. To clean use a dry bristle brush with a suede kit and leather protector.
Check out our cleaning-related cleaning video.
To keep the Adidas Campus 00s fresh, place them in freezer bags (keeps dust away) and insert shoe trees inside (maintains shape).
What to do if you have two different size feet?
Having different-sized feet is normal, and if the difference in size is small, you should:
- Choose the larger size if feet are between sizes or if one foot is bigger.
- Wear thinner or thicker socks, depending on the difference in size.
- Measure in the late afternoon when feet are largest due to swelling.
- Losen laces if the shoes become tight.
Are Adidas Campus 00 Next Gen Sneakers Durable?
No, the way the sneaker was made using the board-lasting technique with one complete suede upper makes it less likely to crease. Make sure you rotate your shoes so you don’t overwear them.
No, especially when they are new. The only bit of stretch you will get from the shoe is how tight or loose you have the laces, so find what feels comfortable.
They take a few wears to break in and fit comfortably, are you prepared to wait for them to stretch?
- The shoe is reasonably priced, and there are many different colours available.
- Fit true to size; feet feel locked in snug.
- The suede used on the upper can be tricky to clean. Personally, I would use a suede and nubuck shoe cleaner.

I’ve been reviewing, buying, selling, and rocking sneakers since high school. Learned a lot since my first pair when I was 7 years old were And 1s (if you know you know). A lot has changed since the brand started in 2017 from reselling sneakers to now reviewing and writing informational content. The aim is to be authentic and honest with my opinions. Saucedby Lee out 🙂
