Outer plastic rubs First of all, I love these shoes as they look really cool. The good points about them are that they are nice and lightweight, and when running, the BOOST technology worked well in giving an extra boost to my strides. I bought these as some reviewers said they had no uncomfortable rubbing. Unfortunately in my case, the hard plastic overlay on the sides started to become very uncomfortable and would rub against the inner sides of my feet after about 5kms into my run. I tried to wear them in but it didn't make a difference. I have now swapped them for the adizero Boston Boost, which are also very comfortable and there is no rubbing at all. I would still recommend the Energy Boost 2.0 ESMs for people who enjoy shorter runs or light exercise, perhaps they will not experience any rubbing, but not for those doing longer runs or marathon training.

Most comfortable shoe ever Never normal comment- but these shoes are amazing. Great fit for narrow feet. I run a lot & long distance - these are the best shoes that I've found. Fantastically priced & if you try & don't like them you can return them- but you won't! I have two pairs now & so does hubby! November 12, 2014
Best shoes Bought these for my sister and I have the same pair in aqua, running in these shoes feels like you're walking on clouds. Could not recommend more! November 25, 2014
Best shoes ever! These are by far the best shoes I have ever purchased! They provide all the cushioning and support you could ask for! I would definitely recommend! September 4, 2014
Narrow Foot Needed Being a huge fan of the Energy Boost 1's, and being close to wearing out the three pairs I currently own, it was time to make the leap and try the Boost 2's. My local running store ordered these Boost 2.0 ESM's or me to try. The ESM's have a stretch mesh upper as opposed to the smooth tech fit upper of the regular Boost. I was not a fan of the mesh. As the shoe ran narrow even for my skinny size 12 foot, I could feel the mesh fabric rubbing against my pinky toe... Not something I would want happening to my feet during marathon training. Additionally, the shoe felt like it cradled my whole foot a little bit more than the original Energy Boosts. I'll be giving the regular Energy Boost 2's a try and hoping the smooth tech fit fabric will feel better on my feet. August 6, 2014
Loved energy boost 1 but unable to wear 2 I absolutely LOVED the original version of this shoe however the change to plastic around the mid foot in the boost 2 has been a disaster for me. Despite trying this shoe multiple times I cannot make it work. With every attempt I end up with pain on the inside of my left foot ...very disappointing as I thought I had found the shoe for me!

Not sure at first but... I love these shoes. They're light as air which is perfect for running and training. I bought another pair from another brand as well and after wearing these, those felt like concrete blocks. They're brand new and I'm not really wearing them anymore. I much, much prefer my Adidas. Never thought I would need the lightness of these shoes, but now I can't see myself wearing anything else. Well worth the money for me. August 23, 2014
Loyal to these shoes I used the first version of adidas energy boost and they were by far the best shoes I've owned to do my long runs in. Ordered energy boost 2 esm received them and was skeptical to wear them for the first time on a 9mile run. My foot had been falling asleep in the glide boost I own so I was worried how they'd feel. Had the best run in my training in them. My pace was faster and best of all my foot did not fall asleep. Highly recommend these shoes just order a size up cause they run small. October 4, 2014
the best running shoes i've ever worn i've been a fan of the energy boosts since i bought the first version on a whim. i was shocked and so happy! the ESMs are now my 3rd pair of energy boosts! my feet and i are very very happy. the shoes are incredibly light and comfortable. i do all my runs, long/short/intervals/etc., in these. my feet are a normal width, maybe leaning towards the wider side, and they're fantastic. believe the hype.

Makes running feel better Bought for my wife who has struggled to "the right shoe" for years. The energy boost makes her more comfortable while running and overall better afterward. She now wants cross trainers with Boost technology. September 9, 2014
