I bought my pair of Ultra Boost back in April and now have over 300 miles on them. The shoes have far exceed expectations. I have been running exclusively in adidas boost products for over two years now. When these were coming out for release I was a little bit skeptical mainly due to the price. I got to run a couple of test miles in a pair of ultras and quickly realized it was the real deal shoe. The upper knit is super comfortable and makes for a breathable design on any run. The extra boost material give a comfortable landing on every step. One thing with a boost product is that you can run in the shoe day after day without reduction in the performance of the midsole. The rubber flex sole is a draw back but after three hundred miles the sole has seen a reduction in the rubber knobs but the sole is still in tact. I am thinking that I can get to 800 miles on these shoes. Excited to see what new colors will be coming in 2016. Thanks adidas!!!
I now have 3 pairs of the ultra booat and can't imagine another shoe as comfy as these. I only wear Adidas but the ultra boost are by far the best. Can't get a more comfortable and true to size shoe out there! Defenitly worth the price! Way to go Adidas!
This shirt has the more traditional Boston Marathon blue than might show in the photo with the model (which looks a bit like baby blue or UCLA blue to me). the close up shot of the shirt looks more like the traditional Boston Marathon blue that this shirt is. Fits great, true to size. Standard Adidas gear otherwise.
I run two marathons per year, one in the spring and one in the fall each year. My shoe is the adios. That shoe was moved to boost technology. I purchased my first pair in early 2014, orange and silver, started experiencing slight knee discomfort after my first run, but I thought it was a running technique issue. I raced one marathon in those shoes. Purchased a second, same issue although not as bad. My current pair, purchased in Feb 2015, have caused even more knee discomfort. I wish there was an adios option without boost technology. Otherwise, I'm afraid I am going to move to another shoe maker. I would like to avoid because all my running apparel (running shorts, short and long-sleeve running shirts, socks, pants, jackets, gloves, beanies) are also adidas.
3 time Boston finisher. Shirt fits great but I ordered and xl since I have broad shoulders and chest but the bottom is a little wide. I guess they they xl folks are fat. Not me. I buy tons of Adidas stuff and love it.
I am so proud of my BQ time and this shirt is perfect! The colors and logo are exactly what I think of when I think of the Boston Marathon. The fit is excellent. No chaffing or weird spots or seams. The women's fit is flattering. Love it and wear it proudly!
My title pretty much sums it up. First, the good: This has to be one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. Appearance is great; Fit is great (I wear 9.5, but went with a half size up and don't regret it). The "sock-like" weave fit is so comfortable, and the boost material really seems second to none. Here's the MAJOR problem: the outer most sole wears faster than any other shoe I've ever owned. I'm generally a fast walker and occasional light jogger. The "nubs" are now completely gone and starting to cause very slippery conditions when wet or on slick surfaces, and I've only had these shoes about 6 months. For the life of me, I wanted to give this shoe a 5-star rating, but for $180, you would think "the greatest running shoe ever" would put a quality and revolutionary outer sole that would last? Why not use your Continental rubber soles like on other Adidas shoes? So disappointed, Adidas.
It's a nice looking shirt, true to the model's image, colour wise. The sizing runs large. I bought a small and it positively drapes on my body, with about four inches extra on the chest and waist, but surprisingly not too bad on the hips which is bizarre because I have small hips (35 inches). From the front it looks great and fitted, but from the side it is so loose that it makes me look dumpy. The chest for a size small is supposed to measure 33-35 and I am 33.5. I have two inches extra material on either size of my body, for a total of 4-6 extra inches in the chest, and 6-8 extra inches in the waist. I like my running shirts fitted and this is more of a casual loose fit. Thrilled to wear it anyway.
These shoes are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. They do fit a little tight but because of the knit material making it more of a sock feel. I'd recommend going a half size up for more room but overall these shoes are amazing and very stylish as well.
This shoes is so comfortable I had to buy it in two colorways. I recently bought some air max 15 prior to buying my first ultra boost in solar red. The boost are way more comfortable to run in than the air max. I recently picked up some ultra boost in a core black colorway when the website had my size available and I have to say, the primeknit material feels a lot different than the primeknkt material on my solar reds. I'm not sure if I got a defective pair but other than that it is still a nice shoe. They also look great so you can wear them with almost anything.
I ran 15 mile long run with this shoes as soon as it was delivered. Despite the lack of time to get used to, or feeling comfortable about it, the shoes fit perfectly. I really liked it particularly its light and nimble structure. I strongly recommend this product.
Fits true to size; high quality materials. I wish with the name being Boston Qualifier Hoodie those words were somewhere on the hoodie, but it does have the 2016 BM logo so not complaining ! Great hoodie.
I'm lucky enough to have picked these out as a Parkrun Sweatshop prize back in May this year and wanted something better than my cheap Karrimors. So when I was told I could pick anything off the shelf at any price, I was like a kid in a sweet shop! These were an instant favourite because of how comfy they were in the shop. The upper fits like a glove around my feet and the sole makes walking and running feel as though you are walking on air. Now, historically I tend to get a bit of discomfort with any new pair of trainers which tends to disappear after a few short outings, so I wasn't put off by the tingley pins and needles I felt on my first few runs. However, I have persevered and run almost 200 miles in them but I consistently start to feel the pins and needles effect after only 4 miles and by 6 miles it becomes almost unbearable. It has got better over time and I ran a half marathon in them recently, but they were extremely uncomfortable from 8 miles onwards. Some have commented on the durability of them, and while mine are not falling apart, the black grip on the soles wore down to flat very quickly. Something I wouldn't expect from a pair of trainers with such a hefty price tag on them. I really wanted to get on with these trainers but unfortunately, I will not be spending any money on another pair.
I already owned a pair of Adios Boost flats but needed a similar shoe that I could use regularly during my speed workouts. I just ordered the exact same size as my Adios and they fit like a glove. With about 20km on them so far I can say that they are very pleasant to use on the road and yes, they are very fast. If you already own another pair in the boost family, you will not be disappointed with the Bostons. They are fast, yet you can still feel supported.
Ultra Boost shoes fit like a glove and have been perfect for all workouts in the gym. I have used my pair indoor for about six months and there is no sign of wear at all. They grip perfectly on the slickest wood floor during weight training. They fit like part of the body and perhaps the most important point is that they are not noticed while running on the treadmill - it is as though they are part of you. Hardly any weight. Added bounce. Best workout shoes ever!
My son and I walked by a new Adidas shoe store in the mall and decided to go in. He was looking for a new pair of running/walking shoes and was trying some on, the sales person was telling us about these new shoes Ultra Boost shoes and here exclusive Adidas soles and tops that are so comfortable it's like walking on air and they boost you while running ? My son was ready to leave but I tried the shoes on and convinced him to also. We didn't take them off and wore them home . I'm on my feet all day and I love these shoes ! Probably the best shoes I've ever owned ! P.S. I was wearing a new pair of New Balance running shoes when we went into the store !
I have high arches and need a lot of cushion for my runs. With my custom insoles inserted , these are the best running shoes I have tried on so far . So plush and great ventilation for long runs. my feet never feel hot or sweaty, even after a 1/2 marathon. So far I have ran 3 races in these shoes and i can always hashtag #PR in my race photos. hahaha. Yes, They are a little more narrow compared to nikes, but i feel like the snug gives my foot extra support. My foot doesnt' feel like its sliding around in my shoes when I run; it stays in place comfortably. A big plus about these shoes is that even after 250 miles, they still look GREAT! it retains its shape so nicely. from afar, they look brand new still and I like how the dirt wipes off easily (I have black shoes so idk about the white boosts). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for beginner runners, averaging 15-20 miles a week , or running 1/2 marathons.
I'll make a few comparisons with the Adipure 360.3, even though that's a trainer instead of a runner. Bear with me, please. Pros: 1. Having a full-length Boost sole in a running shoe is luxurious. It's very cushy and bouncy, yet extremely flexible. I'm a mid/forefoot striker, but in these shoes I can easily shift to rear-foot striking if I need to—and my heels don't scream at me in protest. 2. The bevel in the Boost sole seems to stabilize the shoe a bit: I can do single-leg deadlifts in this shoe, as long as I don't shift all my weight too far to the front of my foot. I don't really recommend these shoes for single-leg activities, as they're definitely runners—but I'm pleasantly surprised I'm not all wobbly while balancing in them. (If you've ever tried to balance like that in a pair of Pure Boosts, you know what I mean.) 3. The upper is stretchy and very breathable. I wore these sockless for 10 minutes on a treadmill, and there was a noticeable breeze running across the top of my feet. 4. As with the Adipure, I love the bootie construction. No detached tongue to fuss with, and I get full lace burn protection. 5. The outsole is grippy. Right out of the box, the outsole was actually too grippy. It sounded like I was walking across a sticky movie theater floor. 20 minutes of walking/running in place on carpet and a yoga mat solved that. Cons: 1. Sizing runs long. I wear an 8 in the Adipure, with a comfy half inch gap between the tip of my big toe and the interior front of the shoe. In the Ultra Boost size 8, that gap's a full inch long. I'll try a 7.5 soon. I bought the 8 instead because I thought the smaller size might be too narrow. 2. The plastic lacing system is a rigid cage that makes the shoe too tight on my wide left foot. (It doesn't aggravate my right foot at all.) I guess the thick plastic's meant to lock down the midfoot, since the fabric upper's so stretchy. But the cage is very unkind to wide feet. To fix that, I changed my lacing technique on the left shoe: I completely skip the 2nd holes, and lace the others in typical crisscross fashion. I also don't lace that shoe too tightly. This lets the second pair of plastic stripes skim my foot, while the other stripes provide support. It keeps the cage from digging hard into my foot. So far, it seems to work well. 3. My heels slide out a bit. That's partly due to the long sizing, I'm sure. But also, the Ultra Boost's collar is looser than the Adipure's—probably because the shoes don't use the same kind of fabric upper. (My heels never slip out of the Adipures.) And the heel counter isn't really locking me down. Wearing thicker socks doesn't help much. Hopefully a smaller size will make a difference. 4. I'm pretty sure the outsole won't last long, especially after seeing other people's photos of worn-down nubs. If I keep these shoes, I'll definitely have to rotate them with other pairs. If the smaller 7.5 size resolves two of those cons, I'll happily keep 'em.
I love the shoe. Very comfortable and you can really feel the energy return. Only draw back is that i feel my heel slipping out when doing my runs, had to remove the insole for my foot to go deeper in the the shoe and for my heel not to slip out.
I buy my running shoes 1/2 a size bigger than my usual shoes and when I got these my first impression was they are too small. But thinking sending them back is a lot of hassle I tried them and they are perfect! They are light and you hardly feel that you wear trainers apart from having a sole to run on. Highly recommended!
The shoe shown on Adidas website saying Boston Boost 5 is actually Boston Boost 5 TSF. TSF has the "sock fit" liner and removed the extra suede strip across the front of the shoe that was on Boston Boost 5. The major difference in the TSF, ironically, is a thick rigid material that serves as anchor for the shoelace eyelets. This material extends much farther beyond the eyelets than it needs to and is not overlayed well by the tongue of the shoe. It chafes from the moment the shoe is put on. The Boston Boost 5 has a very narrow, soft, sewn-In anchor that is nothing like this that is not detectable by the foot. Boston was great when it was Boston 3; firm sole yet supportive and light, truly a marathon shoe that could go the distance with some speed. Boston 4 was too squishy. Boston 5 is not bad, took awhile to get accustomed to the Boost. But this shoe is not Boston Boost 5, it is Boston Boost 5 TSF. I will be sending back. I have been in Asides for the 15 years I have been running an am fairly disappointed in the oversight on this shoe with this excess rigid material in the shoe. The least they could do is cut back the material and sew in the tongue to completely cover. I hope this isn't a trend in this generation of Adidas shoes.
I'm a long term fan of the Boston line, perfect fit for my feet, and used them for road and trail. Initially I was pleased with the upgrade to the Boost midsole - shoes felt fast and lighter than the previous version and still a great fit. I've used them on runs of 5 miles to 100. The downside for me compared to the previous version is the much reduced durability of the sole unit. I have 2 pairs, one of which has 300 miles on it but feels more like my Boston 3s or 4s at 500 miles. Except for the first 100 miles they don't seem to have the firm heel and that snap off the road that i like so much on the pre-Boost Boston and Adios2. Ideally i'd like the Boost cushioning just in the fore/mid foot.
The last 2 years i have been regularily training and running in half marathons. I have found these shoes to be excellent from the get go. For a runner weighting 100kg I find these shoes make me feel light and energenic
These shoes look great and work well for the gym. Not every shoe is good for both inside the gym and outside on the track. I have to watch for shoes that will not turn an ankle and these shoes fit the bill! Adidas shoes last well and fit very wide feet. I don't mind spending more for Adidas shoes because I know they will fit, do the job and last!
Simply a perfect fit and an anatomically correct sole. Finally, a shoe company who doesn't think it can replace millions of years of evolution of the human suspension system with a few millimetres of man made foam !
