micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
The back of these shoes is way too high, it caused a blister on my heel within the first 10 minutes of a run. I had to take them off to get back home. Other than the back of the shoe being designed horribly, they fit like a glove. Although they did hurt my arch after running as well. Not impressed.
Good for concrete and track running, comfy and lightweight. To be honest I expected them to be 'bouncier' that a regular running shoe due to the blades, but I don't feel any noticeable difference. You also can't really take them off of a smooth surface at all. I sometimes run along the canal on a surface of small stones and you can hear what sounds like the blades cracking/snapping as you hit the ground which makes you feel uncomfortable, as if they're going to break. Small stones also get wedged in between the blades and you can hear them scrape on the ground as you run.
First, the shoe is a great combination of cushion and response. The transition is seamless between foot plant and toe-off. Second, the upper is very comfortable. While the forefoot is a little narrow for me there are no friction points because the material works with the foot and is very forgiving. Great shoe, wish Adidas had a trail version.
This shoe is perfect for me. I hope Adidas continues to make this shoe without changing much. The last shoe I used was a different brand and was way too cushy and soft and actually ended up causing foot and ankle pain. I switched to the Supernova Glide Boost 8 based on a recommendation and couldn't be happier. I've been running with this shoe for a couple months now. The shoe is supportive, comfortable, and still manages to be responsive. The Boost material is phenomenal. I highly recommend this shoe.
The back of the shoes is too high for me. It caused blisters on both achilles after 10 min of running outside. I had to fold them over to get back home. I had them altered and the back cut and lowered and now they fit perfectly. This is my first Adidas pair, I owe 5 other running shoes , different brand that never caused any issues, even brand new.
Maybe it's just my feet, but the backs are way too high and really irritate my heels. Also, though I do have naturally flat feet, after a few blocks in these my arches kill. Otherwise the sneakers are quite comfy on the balls of my feels and pretty cool looking.
I purchased this pair of spring blades in Red. I love them. There are so comfy and has a lot of elasticity. Before when I run with other shoes, My left foot hurt, but I did not such problems with spring blade. LOVE it. I will purchase another pair after this pair can not use. I will recommend this shoes for sure. And I got a lot of curiosity and compliments from other runners when I run on the trails.
THE MOST COMFORTABLE RUNNING/WALKING SHOE EVER! I have high arches and a very particular toe on my left foot. I have tried several different brands and styles but all were lacking in one way or another. On my way to buy the Ultra Boost I stumbled on to these and really liked the design of the Color Core Black / Black (BB4017) Pureboost X. This shoe is like no other shoe I have every encountered. It literally fits like a glove. I always size up in a running shoe and did the same with this one and for me it was a good decision. The shoe has a glove like feel with amazing arch support and it's like walking on air. Plus the design is really cool! what other shoe has a floating arch support? Good job Adidas.
I just ordered this pair and another pair of ultra boosts. i really wanted to keep the PureBoostx but the back of the shoe digs into my achilles tendon- its pretty irritating. The suspended arch support is different but nice and fits pretty snug. overall they seem like a great shoe but unfortunately I cant get over the the back of the shoe digging in to my achilles. so disappointed because i really wanted to keep these.
This is my first pair of boost and pleased with the fit and feel of the boost sole. However, mine are already showing signs of wear on the sole. I have worn them 5 times clocking 50ish miles and the boost foam is starting to show through the sole, I'm not confident that they'll last another 50 miles. For the price of this shoe I would expect them to last much longer. Very disappointed.
I really wanted to like this shoe. The design is cute. I have slim feet and they fit like a glove, which I loved. They were lightweight. However, they just rode up way too high on the back of my heel. It irritated my achilles tendon, and I could tell that wearing them for a long time would be uncomfortable. I would love to have the shoe if the shoe could be reworked to ride lower on the heel, like other running shoes.
Over the past year I've tried the ultra boost (not enough support) and the sequence boost (too bulky) and I finally found the perfect running shoe for me. I've been running 4-8 miles in these every day for 2 weeks and they've been holding up great. As you can see from the picture the only part that has been wearing down is the plastic torsion system in the middle, but that's not a big deal. If you don't run on rocky trails like I do this wouldn't be a problem for you. Overall this shoe is great!
The Energy Boost are the best training shoe on the market. They are great for high impact work, like sprinting, but are also great for lower impact work, like long runs. They are built for performance and the boost foam is amazing at absorbing impact
Adidas Supernova Glide 8 This is the shoe I have been looking for. If you are a runner you fully understand what I’m talking about here. We all seek ”that” shoe that will contribute to the pleasures of running, and not just another pair of shoes that will enable you to run. Yes, this shoe enables you to run, but dang it is the most comfortable shoe I’ve had to date. I put in over 50 miles a week on the road…which is difficult on it’s own, since it is road running after all …not trail. But these shoes have really changed my outlook on the road. Quality: I have probably 150 miles on these so far and no major sign of wear and tear. I was worried about the Continental sole, since I had heard it wears fast, I have not experienced this. It’s funny that I talked trash on these shoes before trying them, saying the Boost was a scam. Trust me, it is no scam. We will see if it breaks down, supposedly it does not….it’s like magic. Score 5/5 Comfort: There is a reason why this shoe was voted Runner's World Editor's Choice twice. Fit is snug, not as snug as a Salomon Sense Pro. That said it is not tight in anyway, so wider feet peeps I would not worry too much, the mesh upper I think will adapt nicely. The toe box is no Altra, so if you are looking the spread the toes this is not the shoe. Good ventilation so far, but haven’t had them in temp’s over 90 yet…and not looking forward to that anyways… Weighing in at 10.7 ounces (size 9) I really wish they were a bit lighter, but for an everyday runner it’s within range of competitors. Also, I would rather have a great shoe that weights 10.7 than a bad shoe that weights 9. Score 5/5 Price: At $130 Retail - this is a great price for the Boost line. Anything above this is my tipping point though. 5/5 Looks: Adidas always keeps it so fresh and so clean. Score 5/5 Overall: 20/20
The shoes fit well though they are on the narrow side since my feet are wide. They are comfortable due to the upper material being able to stretch. I am able to wear them for long periods of time without discomfort.
I have accessory navicular and found this shoe supports the tender areas of my feet. Some shoes feel like extra strain is placed on my arches when I run. These shoes don't affect me negatively when I stand for long periods of time, walk, or run. They are super comfy!
I like this shoes, because: 1. They fits perfect on my foot; 2. the midsole is freaking comfortable; 3. looks good and foot is not sweating. This shoes get two stars from me, because the design of this running shoes is not unfinished. After one week synthetic sidewall panels was started to touc a midsole and making a noise and vibrations i can feel when I'm making a move. This is not good and unpleasant.
I like them because they have a cushion and I walk and stand a lot so it had a bounce to my steps and it soothed my feet as I walked and had little pain compared to flat shoes and I think I won't ever buy any other shoes!!
Actually like the design and concept but where the exterior plastic sides with the 3 stripes meet the mesh part of the plastic cuts into the foot. I though I could wear it out and with use will break shoes in and somehow soften this area but no chance - longer I wore em the worse they cut into my foot eventually taking them off in sheer agony
Runs REALLY big. I ordered my usual size, 6.5, and when I received them, I thought they sent me a half or one full size bigger by mistake. There is at least an inch between my toes and the tip of the shoes. I loved the design, how sturdy yet light they are, and everything else about them, so was so sad that I had to return them. I totally would have exchanged for size 6, but all the smaller sizes were already sold out. Super bummed. Don't get me wrong. These shoes are wonderful. Just not properly sized. I do recommend to visit actual shops if you can to get a right size.
The energy boost 3 shoe is the best shoe I have ever used, it is extremely comfortable but at the same time still offering loads of support. The design looks great and actually looks a lot better when you see it in real life, so don't be put off by the shiny looking but on the top of the front because it actually looks great in real life. The fit is slightly on the small size and I would recommend going half a size up to get the best fit. The boost technology is outstanding and has the best returning properties out of any sole I have ever seen. Great shoe and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a extremely comfortable, versatile and supportive runner.
Perfect fit and ultimate comfort from run no1, having always used Adidas my opinion might be slightly biased but I couldn't ask for a better trainer. Snug fit comfortable underfoot and with out a doubt an energy boosting run and to top it off aesthetically pleasing on the eye. Can't find any fault and worth every penny spent. Certainly has my vote
This is a mixed review: I normally wear 9.5 running shoes, but these fit great with a size 10. They are very comfortable & provide a lot of support and a snug fit. This was my second pair of Springblades, but I am returning them because the color is wrong. From the description & pictures the look like a bright Red color. However when I received them, they were definitely a Hot Pink / Florescent Orange kind of color - Definitely NOT Red. **I might try again with a different color**
Slightly different fit to other Boost runner, however, they are still comfortable. They are narrower, so that's something worth bearing in mind. Nice shoe for general use and also sprint training, I've found anyway.
These are the 4th Supernova's I have worn and the Supernova Glide 8s don't disappoint. The are extremely comfortable and the boost technology is very apparent and a plus. These are great when walking too, as they are my favorite for walking long distances (10 miles).
