Adizero Adios Boost 2.0 Shoes
I have owned every Adios version and colour since tthe begining which was the yellow and black worn by Halie Gebrselassie............this latest shoe has all the ingredients of being the ultimate runners dream flat. Adidas have nailed it with this latest iiretation of the Adios. Old meets new. Amazing fit, down to the new shoe laces which have an elastic feel. The boost just tops it all of. Please Adidas don't change this shoe. You have got the right formulation now. All we need are more colours. "Immosibble is nothing" in the new Adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2. Expect to break your PB's I have...

Tight and light; a great racing shoe
I just finished my first 10-mile CRIM following about 12 miles of break-in on these shoes. I ordered a half-size above dress-shoe size, as recommended, but the fit is still quite snug, making them a little tricky to get my wider feet into. Bottom Line; during the 10-mile race, I never even noticed that I had shoes on my feet. I have zero frontal shin pain as I've experienced with other shoes. No foot pain whatsoever. These are perfect for the mid-to-heel striker. Light, cool, a great street-racing shoe. I have found shoe love once again.

Need more stars to rate this shoe!
The perfect running shoe: so light you almost feel barefoot. Continental rubber gives amazing traction. Boost is the best impact absorption material PERIOD. The shoe gets more comfortable to more often you run in it, as the insole forms to your foot. I like the lower heel to toe drop as well. Overall a better running stride for me, plus much better stability when doing high speed and intensity drills like 100s etc. Honestly my favorite purchase of any athletic product ever! You will love this shoe!!

Still a great trainning shoe.
I need to say that I love Adios boost 1. So after reading about the 2.0 new upper, I was in a hurry to order them on line. I was sad at the beggining that the fit was so different, tighter, but after running a few miles I think Adidas did a great update just order 1/2 size bigger. Great for running fast, and great if after some miles you start landing more on the heel than in the mid foot.

WARNING Runs smaller than the original Adios Boost
I'm a huge fan of the Adios series, having owned each variation over the years. I enjoyed the Boost after getting used to the new springy sole over 30 or so miles.
The Boost 2 is more of the same good stuff that was introduce by the Boost. The improvements are that the build quality of the 'pure' Adios line is apparent - gone are the plastics which didn't quite work (and actually dug in to the top of my foot). I did think that the laces wouldn't stay tight as they're smoother than the grippy laces we're used to on this line - i was wrong, they work well.
My only issue after 40 miles in these is that they instantly felt small on my foot. I've always worn an 11.5 in every iteration and this time things felt tight - my toes felt like they were right up against the end of the shoe. I thought it could just be the change in design and ran with it. After 3 runs it's slightly better but I clearly need to go up at least half a size. I recently got an end of line pair of Adios 2's and have no issue with the fit at 11.5. Please try them before you buy, or at least consider jumping up a half size.

They are a good pair of shoes to run in. They are really light shoes that made the strain on my legs considerably less.
The pair I initially had some stitching that was slightly loose on the left shoe but it didn't impair the actual running.
I would recommend you buy a half size up. I normally wear a size 9 for Adidas, but the shoes were slightly smaller on the tips and would hit my toes whenever I took a step.

but finding that they chafe just a little around the inside of the top laces...feel as though extra attention should have been paid to that kind of thing

Apparently I have a tall foot. The sides of the upper barely reach up to the edges of the tongue, so the space along the top of my foot, where the laces are, doesn't pull together far enough to be totally comfortable. the shoe length and width are fine, but the "height" is not.
otherwise the shoe is great; light, speedie. I don't get an amazing "boost" feel, but maybe my 210 lbs is too much.

No cushion whatsoever, like running on a plywood
don't waste your money on these shoes, I paid $140 bought in on the "boost" hype but there's no cushion under this shoes especially under the forefoot, if you land on your heels then they might be ok for you otherwise they feel like you are running with a piece of plywood under your feet.
