The only good shoes Adidas makes for running nowadays are the Adizero Boost (including Boston version) and the Takumis. If she would benedit from low drop, the Takumi Ren are the only choice given by Adidas (but they're so minimalist that I doubt that's an option).
Other than those they are all so subpar compared to competition that I don't see a reason to advise them to anyone.
I never got an Asics that fit my feet since I was an adult (toe box) so I can't speak about them.
I'm not sure what whomever recommended these two shoes was thinking, or if they were since they are different classes.
If you want a stability adidas shoe look at the supernova ST. if you want a neutral asics look at the Nimbus or Cumulus.
I've run in all these except the energy boost. All are pretty well cushioned shoes. I'd probably rank them most to least as Nimbus, Supernova ST, Kayano, Cumulus
The kayano may have more stability than the supernova's.
EDIT: she may also want to try the Adidas Supernova which is a neutral shoe while the Supernova ST is a stability shoe.
hope that helps.
I'd also agree with whomever said that she should go and try them all on and run up/down the store or a sidewalk to see what she thinks of each.
yea, those recommendations don't make sense. the recommendation of something from two totally different genres suggests that the recommender didn't really know what he/she was talking about.
yes, go to a run speciality shop and do due diligence (not you, OP, her).
