Great shoe! I go through shoes pretty quickly when training (usually around 50 miles per week), but these have held up so well. Highly recommend! I've ran in an older model and remember wearing a US 7.5, but for some reason, I had to order a full size down in these. Perhaps it's because I purchased them in France (even though the US size was marked on the shoe as 6.5)...? Not sure, but definitely try them on, just to be sure.
love the feel of boost on the shoe... the torsion system gets torn up pretty quickly and isn't the most stylish shoe... but works great for cross country and has a lot of mileage with minimum signs of being worn!
I ran my first Hood to Coast with these bad boys and I can confidently say that they were a huge reason I managed to complete the race in good time and less pain than expected. Keep up the good product creation!
I got these for my upcoming Cross Country season. My previous trainers were the Adidas Energy Boosts 2. These supernovas are pretty similar to the energy boosts, but I think that I like them a little bit more. First of all i think that these are a bit more durable and have better traction. I have had them for about two weeks and have ran a 10 mile race in them, they are very comfortable and have not given me any problems so far. The only thing I don't like about this shoe is that it is a little heavy.
Very comfortable shoes. I had worn out shoes before so I decided to buy these and I didn't really have to break them in. Just put on these shoes and run! On my first run(on a track) they felt great. It gave my legs great support. The quality of the shoe is my favourite thing. I can just hold this shoes in front of me and be in awe of it. I also like to wear Adidas socks with these shoes, it makes everything far more perfect being geared up with Adidas. #allin #firstneverfollows
I love everything about this shoe. The cushioning is amazingly comfortable. My toes aren't constricted and my heel is held properly. The Continental tread should be durable. I tried a couple of other Boost models before finding this great shoe.
The most luxuriously soft and cushioned shoe of them all. I love these for recovery runs because they're just so comfortable. It seems to be a bit on the heavier side compared to the previous model, so I typically stick with it for shorter runs.
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.
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.
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
Such a nice running shoe! Has a good amount of cushion, and last for so many miles! Only complaint is that the arch support is lacking, but that can be fixed with an insert and makes for an awesome pair of shoes!
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).
There is pressure from the eyestay which causes friction on the tongue. This is a picture taken after 5 months of wear. The pressure has been so great that it has worn a hole right through the material of both shoes.
