Rated 5 out of 5 by StephenB84 Great for wide feet
Great running shoes. These are good if you have been looking for a shoe with boost technology and you have wide feet. Very happy

For me, the adistar Boost ESM Shoes combined real comfort and support with style. I have no hesitation recommending them to anyone wanting an all purpose trainer, whether they are a fitness veteran or just starting out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IanK A bit small but it works great
Overall 4/5 Stars. I know a lot of shoe manufacturer's don't usually cater to people with larger feet (Me being a 13.5-14) even though they sell out of the 11-13s super quickly and are always left with the smallest sizes on Clearance. I got the 13s since they were the largest size. My feet feel a bit cramped and I have to constantly pull up my socks in order to get my shoes on so my feel aren't cramped. Enough about my personal issues, these shoes are great for the most part, I do feel the extra bounce to my step and they are very good running shoes. Used for about a month now and I love them. I'll be looking for some thinner socks to hopefully make up for the crampyness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kiss8 Buyer Beware
I love Adidas products and have had great success with many of their shoes but these shoes stink. The shoes have some kind of band that runs across the forefoot that makes that part of the shoe really snug to the point that I cannot wear them walking/kicking around without my feet experiencing extreme discomfort (basically claustrophobic).
I was able to deal with this when going on short jogs but the lining inside is poorly finished as they have what amounts to a flap that rubs back and forth on the top of my foot to the point where I started getting cuts on my toes. All in all a really uncomfortable shoe and basically unusable.
I bought the Supernova Glide Boost last year and those are awesome. I'd recommend those.
Sorry Adidas - swing and a miss on these shoes :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adichamp Beat Overall Boosts!!
I love the Adistar Boosts ESM! The addition of the mesh upper makes the shoes more breathable and the superior Boost sole provides cushioning for every kind of step. The flexibility of the Adistar Boosts also makes them more versatile running-wise, but these shoes are the best for walking and easy runs. I gave these shoes 4 stars out of 5 only because these shoes are NOT TRUE TO SIZE. I wear a size 13. And comparing the Adistar Boost ESM to the Supernova Boosts lines, the Supernovas are truer and more breathable in my natural size. The ESM 13's felt like a true size 12. No toe room at all. I returned and exchanged the Adistar ESM for a size 14 and instantly fell in love. They feel as comfortable as the Supernova Boost Glide uppers with better cushioning! Love 'em!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DennyBill Abrasive rubber inside toe
I really wanted to love these shoes, and did really like the feel of the ESM materials and boost midsole. However, there is a noticeable piece of welded rubber on the inside of the toe area (matching the same-sized piece of rubber on the outside) that would rub my big toe to the point of almost feeling like water torture after a few miles. And longer and I would not doubt have a blister. There also did not seem to be enough padding in the rear heal to keep the plastic heal clutch from rubbing my achilles, also cause for abrasion. Maybe it's just my janky feet, but I was hoping for more in the details for the price of these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eigaso Great purchase
I didn't plan on spending a lot on jogging trainers. I've only recently started jogging and realised i needed something with more support, light weight and comfort. After trying a range of different shoes from different manufactures i put these on and all i can say is wow! I knew straight away I had to buy them, well worth the price. I even where them to the gym and the comfort, bounce and support are excellent for gym use too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stqy My best pair of running shoes ever!
This is my first pair of Adidas running shoes, and I really love it. To be honest, I had my doubts at first as I have always bought running shoes from their biggest competitor.
When the Adidas pure boost 1 was launched, I bought it and love the comfortable "pillow-like" feeling of the sole. But I reckon it is more of a fashion sneaker than a running shoe and I could not compare it with my previous pair of running shoes. So based on my initial impression on the pure boost technology, I decided to go ahead and purchase the adistar boost esm.
It became clear that I have made the right choice after my first 5km run with the adistar boost esm. But what is surprising is how I felt after my 2nd run the very next day.
Usually, with my previous pair, I will be feeling the aches in my feet and ankles. With this Adistar, the soreness did not happen. Leaving everything constant (I run on treadmills only, distance, warm-ups and cool-downs, etc), I feel that this must be attributed to the pure boost technology.
To date, I have ran 25kms in this AdistarBoostESM, and I have never felt better running. In fact, I dont recall this same feeling when I first bought my last pair of lunarglides. And because I can now run consecutively without feeling the sore and aches, I have even ramped up my training plans.
Apart from the Pure Boost technology, I love how the shoe fit my foot with the techfit upper. It fits like a glove, but yet not constricting when you run. The shoe tongue is plushy, so you will not feel the laces.
Some reviewers have complained about the blister forming at the toe area, but I do not have that blister problem. In fact, I find that the rubber piece at the tip of the shoe that caused them blisters helps your feet to stay in place when you run so that you will not "slip" due to the sock-like upper. It might be because they do not have a good fit (ie. they bought a size too small or big), or that they have a badly designed socks with the seams sewn at the toe area.
On a side note, I strongly suggest you to invest in a pair of running socks as it does make a difference. Running socks are sewn differently, and the seams are actually further back before the nail-bed. They actually do help to prevent blisters and provide comfort when running.
In conclusion, I really love the Adistar Boost ESM, and I will definitely recommend it if you are looking at a pair of Stability running shoes.
