micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I did 3 runs with the Ultra boost so far. The first was a 12k in which I set a new personal best without even trying to run fast. The second was a 12k I ran at a pace of 5 minutes per k ( 8 minutes mile) and my heart reate was way lower than normal at that speed. Today i did a 26k run and the pace was good. The shoe fits well. After having run only 50k with these shoes, I find that the wear is excessive. Some of the nobs are already completely gone. Compared with the other boost shoes I've had the wear is excessive. That's the only issue I have with this shoe. If Adidas can fix the wear issue, they have a real winner here. For the price they cost, this will turn out to be an expensive shoe, because i don't see myself getting the same mileage out of these shoes.
I have done three runs in these shoes a five mile, seven mile then on Saturday nineteen miles - Shoes are really nicely cushioned. I went down by half a size from original adidas boost. I bought two pairs 10.5 and 11 and took them on and off so better than buying from a running shop to dither but these are better to be close fitting. Bit heavier and less speedy than previous models. I had a sore toe before the run due to a black nail but ran for 3 hours and it was fine. The uppers are great. Lovely cushioning great for my sore Achilles and no problems after 19 mile long run so fantastic for a marathon. But .... the outsole is worn after just 30 miles - the pimples are down to nothing - is the rubber too soft - I'm concerned they wont last 100 miles. I have attached photo which shows some of the slightly worn pimples and some have worn to be flat - is this a major flaw if so adidas will get a lot of returns
A couple of things to mention, I love the Energy Boost, I love the Adios Boost. One of the things I love about Energy Boost is that first 200 meters when you set off and it feels like you are just floating compared to other shoes. When I saw the release of the Ultra Boost and the opportunity to place a pre-release order I knew I would buy them. Have run a couple of times in them now, 7mi and 8mi. Today was a 6'49" steady run. First thing was early pace surprised me, started up a big hill and Ultra Boosts made sub 7 uphill feel relatively easy. Boosts seem to suit my stride as in them it really flows and feels very smooth, U Boosts are no different in this respect. Have also found them better than Energy Boost at minimising soreness after the run. E Boosts were good in this respect but U Boost seems even better. The shoe feels totally neutral, even more so than the E Boost. Today was a light mist and ground slightly greasy, but grip of new Boosts was never really in question. As is mentioned in the PR materials, the upper is really special. It literally does fit like a glove. In E Boost I went a 1/2 size up to UK11, but in U Boost 10.5 fits me perfectly. Due mainly to the stretch of the Primeknit. I think the 1/2 size up would have been too big for me. In Adios Boost I also take 10.5, so if you have Adios Boost the same size in U Boost is fine. I guess looks are a personal preference, but my last E Boosts were Black with red inner, so for me the initial release of U Boost in Black with the blue heel cup would be my first choice in any case. They do look really nice! To summarise, I am really happy with the shoe so far, it feels fast, protects my legs even better than E Boost, fits like a glove, grips really well and looks better than the other 19 or so shoes in my collection!
im a lover of the adidas boost technology, this is my 3rd pair & they haven't disappointed. I run most days & wear these trainers to do so, I can't wear them for fitness classes that I teach as not enough support for movement in different directions but there made for running so that's what they're best suited for. The only down side is possibly the "sock" style, I don't find that this suits & fits every foot properly. The look & design is fabulous, I ordered the black ones & they look amazing.
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...
First, this shoe is amazing. Im an ex-collegiate T&F athlete with a neutral gate and forefoot-midfoot runner. I'm approx 200lbs, and need a cushioned ride. I've been looking forever for a shoe with enough fore-mid foot cushioning for the heavier, neutral runner and I feel as though everything is focused on Heel cushioning these days but this is amazing for the mid-forefoot striker! Extremely cushioned and soft yet responsive, feels great on the foot, needed two days to break the shoe in, and no injuries since I've had them. You don't want to take these babies off, believe the hype. I almost missed out on a great shoe.
Pure Boost 2.0's? It is pure perfection. I have bought and worn many many shoes. I have owned the Nike Roshe's and worn them out. I wanted a new casual but comfortable shoe to wear on an everyday basis. Light and comfortable are understatements for this Adidas shoe. You barely notice you are wearing a shoe and as soon as you take a step, it feels as if there is a cloud under your foot. For a littler more money, I would definitely buy the Pure Boost 2.0's over the Roshe's. Due to Adidas trying to reduce the weight as much as possible, there is not much lateral stability. I wouldn't recommed running in these. (These should be in the Casual section) The Boost Cushioning is phenomenal. The upper is breathable and lightweight. Definitely order these. (I received mine in about 2/3 business days even with the basic free shipping, great service)
The Pure Boost is the most comfortable pair of shoes i've ever worn. The boost feels incredible and upper just feels like i'm wearing a pair of slippers. Without the torsion system the boost is incredibly flexible and this helps a lot in making the shoe as comfortable as it is. The only thing that i would change is to add a couple more lace holes.
I have have five failed knee surgeries and the original energy boost were the ONLY shoes that I could wear with minimal pain. When they changed them I bought every pair online from ebay, you name it. I have been in agony since nothing came close...BUT this ATR is exactly like the original except better in terms of gripping my heel. It runs extremely narrow. Since this is the only shoe I wear 24/7 (including wedding and funerals), I will be buying many more pairs!!!!!! So happy to have pain reduced. Big shout out to Big Peach Running Company!
I am so happy with this latest generation! I have several pairs of Adidas Boosts but my favorite has always been the first generation until these came out (The Energy Boosts 2 never felt as cushiony or comfortable to me). I had to splurge on the pre-launch and I'm so glad I did! I couldn't imagine this shoe getting any better from the first generation but the Supers have blown them out of the water as far as cushion and comfort goes - for me anyway. Thank you Adidas! I'm sure I will be buying more once they are on the market again.
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.
I've owned Boost since the first day they came out. I've had 5 pair since. I haven't loved every pair equally either. In fact, I thought Adidas was losing touch until this release. My biggest complaint was traction and quick wear of rubber surfaces. Just a little moisture on the street and the first three generations were like running in ice skates. I switched to the Adios, but not enough cushion, so I came back to the original. These are perfect. Some guys say they are snug. Yes they are, but in a good way. it's a "compression" sock. Look it up. These are finally all terrain, so if your foot goes in the mud, you don't want to lose your shoe. Just man up and get these. Worth every penny. Kudos Adidas!! (oh yeah, you still need to order a half size up, just like always)
I have owned 2 pairs of the Energy Boosts and LOVED these shoes as hands down the best and most durable neutral trainers I've found. I wanted to get a distance racing or tempo shoe with Boost, but wanted just a little more cushion than the Adios. Along comes the Boston 5 , and I was definitely not disappointed by this shoe. It's got a lighter, firmer and slightly lower to the ground feel than the Energy Boost, but is not lacking in cushioning whatsoever with distance up to 15 miles so far. As I said, great addition!
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.
I have run 15 miles in these shoes, and I love the cushioning in them and they are very comfortable, except for one problem. The tongue is too thin and the laces start too high up, and when I try to tie them tight enough so the heel does not slip, the laces hurt the top of my feet. I don't understand why these couldn't be more like the men's version. Unfortunately, this problem is something that I don't think I can get used to, and I will be returning these.
