Climachill Rocket Boost Shoes
Adidas boost line keeps outdoing themselves!
This is now my 3rd pair from the Adidas energy boost line. I now own the original energy boost, energy boost 2 and this rocket boost version and they ALL are at the forefront of my choices to put on my feet each day. The hands down most comfortable sneaker I have ever worn. This new rocket boost is so unbelievably light , cushiony, airy, cool temp, just perfect for me on all fronts. The unique color combo and style also is appealing. You will not be disappointed. If you normally take a 10.5 in a Nike brand order 0.5 size larger (11.0) for Adidas and they will be perfect.

Eh.. I wanted them to be good
I bought these shoes because I stand up all day, walk / speed walk / run around inside and outside for my job all day long.
Two major downsides were, they gave the back of my ankles blisters within 10 minutes of walking (NOT FUN)! AND they have an air flow system that goes from the sole to the bottom of the shoe which I did not know about during purchase, step in one puddle and POOF, your socks are instantly wet too.
Additionally, the memory foam bottoms were white and extremely hard to clean
The soles were very comfy but the blisters and lack of water resistance made it an easy no for these shoes

Love the boost
I bought these after having the original energy boost shoes for about 9 months. I wanted something with a more stable toe area. These provide average stability, but much more than the neoprene front foot upper on the energy boost shoe. These energy soles are great shoes. I wore the energy boost shoes for over 9 months, running, gym time, sports, around town. The sole just lasts. It does not compress over time. just as thick and springy as day one. These rocket boost seem to be great too. They are a little lighter and a more flexible sole, Very comfortable, but less support on the midsole where some of the other boost shoes have the hard plastic insert to stiffin the sole up which is a good thing. The boost soles are by far the most comfortable shoes EVER. I tend to have constant heel pain from my horrible walking form and these eliminated that. These actually ran true to size. I had to get a full size bigger on my first energy boosts though.

Climachill Rocket Boost
Very nice looking and very soft shoe. Get a half size larger for proper fit. Best of the Boost shoes. I sent all the others back, but will probably get a second pair of these in a different color. Easily the most impressive running/messinaround shoe Adidas has made so far.

Hesitate to call it a running shoe
To be fair I didn't actually run in these shoes. However, I have owned two pairs of Energy Boost each of which I logged a thousand miles in training and marathons. The Climachill felt plain cheap when I put them on my feet. I felt that the shoes would not last for 100 miles. Actually, I thought they would tear after a single tempo run. I am not fast or a large runner. They felt really narrow in the toe box as well. I sent them back after wearing them in the house for 20 minutes. Take the review with a grain of salt because I never ran in them, but if you loved the durability of the energy boost.... I would be shocked if you liked these shoes. By the way, save yourself some time and go with the FANTASTIC Energy Boost!

Full Length Energy Boost Midsole is COMFY
The most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased. I also own some of the other brands current top running shoe offerings and the comfort does not compare. Runs a bit small, as I went up a half size from my usual running sneaker size.

just one complaint to adidas make the boost foam in black or grey gets dirty easy no way to clean!

Adidas got it right with this one
Adidas, don't change this running shoe except cover the underlying mesh more, it allows too much dust into the shoe. However, it does exactly as the name implies, it gives your run a rocket boost. The faster you run, the lateral acceleration seems to work in synergy with the boost material and actually propels you along your run. It's like the Lamborghinis of shoes!

Best shoes I have ever had
I would not normally write about my shoes but these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They are also really cool looking. I am considering getting another pair just to wear leisurely. Love them!

Superlight Boost Racer
For long distance runners this shoe is not constructed to be your everyday running shoe. For that it lacks stability and support. Even for experienced neutral runners. However, it is perfect for shorter distances, interval training or as a race shoe where you are willing to trade stability and support for a super light shoe. The fit of the shoe is brilliant. Feels like wearing a sock, and when running it feels like you were born wearing those shoes. The design of course is a matter of opinion, but I think it speaks for itself. Love the contrast between the light blue and navy blue as well as the orange lazes giving it an extra edge. When going for the PB after all it does not hurt to look like a pro :) I can't recommend this shoe enough as a short distance or race shoe.
