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! August 29, 2014
so far so good Just got a pair. Fit is pretty good. Went for a quick walk in them - nice cushioning. Did feel too high up in them. Love the one piece tongue. lots of cushioning on the tongue so i don't don't feel the laces on the top of my foot. feel like my old trail response shoes but a lot lighter. The boost is definitely noticeable in that it does feel "bouncier" and a lot bouncier than a pair of adizero prime knits I returned. :( They seem great for running but not much else. Noticed my toe slid out easily since there no real support or restraining of ,y outer toe if i push off sideway - like turning quickly. I follow up later after a few weeks of running in them.

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. November 27, 2014
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. July 13, 2014
Already on my third pair Ok, so I'm in high school cross country, and these are the only shoes i will buy. The cushioning is excellent, the stability is amazing, and the new ESMs have great ventilation. And they look amazing. I would wish they would last a little longer, for the price. But they are still excellent. I cannot recommend them higher/ September 16, 2014
adistar boost hands down best adidas shoe on the market right now... great for stability, cushion, shock absorptions. use for any type of training. mostly running, but everyday use is definitely ok. turn heads when you walk around :P August 7, 2014
Narrow Shoe I have been wearing the Boost ESM for three weeks. I was disappointed to see that Adidas does not offer this shoe, and others, in various widths. Walking in this shoe feels initially light and comfortable. But after a while, the narrow shoes start pressing, and I need to retie the laces to relieve the pressure. Perhaps the shoes will expand somewhat or my feet will contract... I hope for either, because otherwise, they are great shoes. Adidas, one width fits all is fallacy. September 8, 2014
Greatest Running Shoes! These shoes are overall greatness! Thought I'd never buy these because of the price but I'm glad I did. I love the way they feel around my feet. And they are really comfortable. August 9, 2014
Not As Expected Shoe comfort level is great but after i used it for two days i can see some cracks and some parts of the white layer present in the shoe coming out. September 22, 2014
The best there is This is really the best there is! Very comfortable and light. July 30, 2014
