I think the glide boost 8 is an improvement on the 7 version. Fit is the same but shoe feels more comfortable due to the improved tongue and heel fabrics. Excellent training shoe for high mileage runners and highly recommend it.
The shoes look great and as expected with the boost technology are very comfortable to walk on. However areas such as the tongue and the heal are a little too tight so would recommend buying a 1/2 size larger than usual if possible.
Best pair of shoes I bought in a long while. I work in the film industry and we do alot of walking outdoors. These shoes are perfect on all conditions, love the traction on it when I am working on slippery areas.
I want to love them, they are the comfiest, but they squeak soooo much it's ridiculous! I work at a hospital and everywhere I go it sounds like I have water in my shoes. For $180 a pair they should not squeak like that. Also when training indoors the insole slips within the shoe. So disappointed.
I'm a mail carrier and I walk 10 miles a day and these shoes are very light and comfortable. In the past the shoes I purchased from Adidas were too narrow in the toe area but on this shoe it seems like Adidas improved and made wider.
I've run in Supernova Sequence shoes for a few years, and every time the old pair are ready to "retire," the newer versions just blow me away with all the improvements! Great reflective material on the sides of the runner, and amazingly comfortable with outstanding support as always. These fit like a glove!
I have skinny skinny feet and these things are super snug. The laces are pointless because there's a band that goes over the top of your foot that tightens the shoe. Also, get a half size up, I has to send mine back and get a bigger size. It wasnt even close to normal size for me.
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.
I like adidad brand much. Last year i bought a shoe from adidas online which was in clearance and im using it till date. Perfect quality long lasting usable. Adidas offers discount then and there. Still looking forward to buy new products if i get high discounts
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.
This shoe is as solid as it looks....tough in every way. The outer sole is massive and extends a fair bit beyond the heel width of the shoe and will surely provide excellent traction on any type of flat or inclined surface. I've never regretted any ADIDAS purchase and that includes this one!!
I have had my ultra boosts for about a month now while running 12-25 miles a day as well as wearing them casually. They have shown no wear and tear and feel as comfortable as the first day I got them. These are such nice shoes and have made me not want to leave adidas for my future shoe purchases.
Like it for: 1) Robust built, you would feel the strength of the shoe -not something that will wear away in months 2) Design 3)Super arch support for stability, especially for flat feet. Dislike for: I wear size 10, but 10 was loose fit so 9.5 was a better fit. Still, the big toe touches the top of the shoe often during running/walking. On the other hand, at the rear its not a great fit, somewhat loosens/slips during lift off of the feet from ground.Probably the reason is, it is build more for stability than flexibility and that has lead to a more rigid built which does not fit to the changing foot shape during running/walking.
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!
I run around 25 miles a week typically on the road but sometimes on a treadmill. They have lasted me over 500 miles and still feel brand new. There was a short period of time where I would have serious ankle pain on the outside of my right ankle when I put them on. After resting for a week though the pain went away and never came back. For me they fit perfectly from day one. Had no problem once they were broken in with blisters, and were the first pair of shoes I have ever worn that I didn't have knee pain after a run.
The shoe without a doubt looks very nice and the boost technology feels great. However this shoe is not the best for running. The toe box is small and the shoe is narrow. Hopefully with more wear they will break in.
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
Feels like walking on clouds. Only moderate arch support if you need this. Very funky style. I get lots of comments when wearing these. They fit a half size smaller than the regular boost shoes. I take an 8.5 in most sneakers, but an 8 in regular boost,and 8.5 in ultra boost.
I came to purchase these after I noticed how often I was wearing my ultraboosts for casual occasions. I was looking for something with the same feel but loved that these looked more casual and less sporty. In this shoe, I really like the EVA and boost mix. I love the foamy EVA traction and all-over coloration. I like that the ZG colors are chill and the silhouette is not too sporty. I don't wear these to run. I wear them with jeans and slim fitting chinos. I recommend buying a half size larger. I wear a 10 1/2 in the ultraboost and an 11 1/2 in these. My size is normally 11. I don't think the design is perfect (the rubber cage wrap-around thing looks a little strange squashed under the laces) but I like the attempt to make a wearable running shoe that looks good casual/lifestyle. I have the navy pair I'll probably get the grey one as well. The price of these is great. I hope they improve on this shoe and make the elements a little more harmonious. I hope Adidas keeps an incarnation of this around for a while because I'll keep buying them. I am big fan of retro runners and am always trying to pull them off at work. These have the subtle look of those retro runners but with a more modern and durable sole. Nice shoe. I don't normally write reviews, but wanted to in order to inform people to purchase a half size larger. The primeknit version runs truer to size. Why? I don't know.
Love my shoes! Only problem is and it's a big one is within 8weeks I start noticing the threads breaking in the toe section. I run 12-18 miles per week. Please Adidas make the toes stronger. I can't run in anything else!
I have been looking for a light weight, yet comfortable shoe like this for a long time! I am so glad, I found these!!! Perfect for running indoors, as well as outdoors! I still can't believe that I went to so many stores, trying on shoes that just didn't fit right, until I tried this one! I could have saved so much time by just getting these right away:)
I pronate and this shoe was recommended to me by a foot specialist. I bought a half-size too big so will have to exchange the pair, but it is still very comfortable and works well to keep my foot in place.
I had to return these shoes because they were not what I was expecting from adidas boost shoes. I purchased the pure boost ZG because I thought that they would stay significantly more clean than my current pure boost. My biggest–and only–complaint is the toe area. There is a piece of hard material on the inside that guards the front end of the shoe, which caused pain immediately after I put on the pair. The piece (of plastic I assume) makes any sliding of my feet in the shoe painful as the toenails continually bump into the poorly placed piece. Maybe this problem only applies to me, but just in case, I thought I would write a review. I was very satisfied with the look of the shoe; I just do not understand the construction of the shoe.
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).
Shoes look very sharp. Feels like you are walking on a cloud. One can walk forever and feet will never hurt. I highly recommend this purchase to anyone, you will not be disappointed at all. Fit does come a little tighter than ultra boost but not dramatic difference. I am a size 11 for both pair and I would not change that for the pure boost. Overall, these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased.
