micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I had such high expectations about this shoe, after a .5 change in size for being too narrow, I switched to 11, used it once and now I am unfortunately unable to return. I own another 3 pair of Boosts and this is the most uncomfortable by far, the arch pain the inner plastic body of the shoe causes makes this unwearable. 180 dollars down the drain.
I read the reviews saying that these thing hurt, and they sure do. In fact, they were like spikes in my feet for the first three days. Then, once i broke them in they feel amazing. It's one of those things, if they hurt, you probably need them. The reason I was okay purchasing was that I've seen this "foot massage spike thingy" technology before so I knew there was a method to the madness. They feel great on my feet now.
Got these pure boost busenitz recently and they are amazing! Boost sole is what you expect, comfortable and responsive. I have the red suede and it is gorgeous with its stitch detailing. Only 2 complaints. The first is that you need to order at least 1/2 a size or even 1 size down as they are pretty big and loose fitting. These run larger than nmd's would. The second complaint is what others have said before in that the thin leather material around the heel is pressed very thin and sharply. You gotta be careful if you plan to wear low ankle socks because the abrasion will really wear on your heels. I didn't have any cuts but definitely felt like I was reaching that point. All in all still a recommended buy just based on a beautiful boosted classic!
I bought these shoes for my boyfriend and he absolutely loved them. Shipping, however, wasn't great since I received the shoes after his birthday but they arrived in perfect condition. Overall I would order again but with much more time to spare in order to receive my items on time.
The new look was out of this world and had to try them for college baseball. The ultra boost in the heel is beyond comfortable and hugs your foot very nicely. Very light as well, forms to your foot and very good grip.
The shoe is fantastic. I would say durability is an issue, but that is the same as literally any shoe on the market today. Yes the outside will fray, no it didn't affect me at all and I am a crossover, quick guard. Traction was great overall, not perfect but great. Cushion is fantastic, despite what others here have said, this is the softest of the boost set-ups and its phenomenal. The prime knit is also great, and the inner bootie compliments it greatly. The fit is great, best fitting Adidas shoe in a long time. I didn't get any blisters or cuts, but I wear long socks always. Also this shoe will fit an ankle brace better than any other shoe. Overall could the shoe have been more durable? Sure, but no shoe really is anymore. It is a great buy and I will be looking forward to picking up a couple of extra pairs of the Crazy Explosive.
I love these shoes! I'm training for football and had a pair of nikes and the comfort level was night and day. Really recommend these for quick lateral movements, balance based workouts, and lifts. Extremely comfortable and well worth the money. Still wish I got the navy blue and red ones when I had the chance :,(
It's a very well made shoe. The suede on this is fantastic. Very recommended. Be wary on the sizing though. I have somewhat narrow, flat feet, wear an 8 in sambas, but I found this model to fit a 1/2 size big. The arch support in these are pretty good for a medium, non aggressive arch. Again, recommended
Only one complaint... the back/top of the shoe rubs against my heel. Have to wear these shoes with taller socks or they'll rub your heels raw. Other than that, these shoes are awesome. Super comfortable (as long as I'm wearing the right socks), great to run in, and they look great.
This is my third pair of these same shoes (same color as well). Each of these pairs lasted 10+ years. I didn't wear these everyday, but they were worn 'regularly.' I have over 10+ pairs of Adidas. Solid quality. Design is superb. What else do I need to say ? They are a classic.
Very comfortable and surprisingly supportive. Defintely the best basketball shoe I've ever worn. The PK upper takes absolutely zero break in time. I thought the 4 point lace system was not going to work, but is executed perfectly and keeps you locked in. Heel counter also keeps you from feeling any heel slippage - something I experienced with the Crazylight Boost Low 2016s. Full-length Boost is definitely felt throughout for maximum comfort. As for the outsole, it's not Continental, but it works. I felt no experience of slipping or sliding during hard cuts. Overall the shoe is very low profile and you can feel every millimeter of your foot on the court. No rocking or rollover sensation. I think adidas hit a home-run with the Crazy Explosive PK. Price point is awesome and, in my opinion, a great valued, best bang for your buck basketball shoe.
Bought these because I have the black and gray ones and love them! Unfortunately, these rubbed the back of my heel so bad I got a blister, and they had orange specks of paint or something on them. I am thoroughly disappointed because usually, these are good quality. Probably won't buy any more shoes again.
Very well made and I love the red. Suede is nice and I like the feel of the sole. They are super comfortable right away as compared to Sambas, which I've been wearing for years. They always seem to require a break-in period, but still are well worth it. Anyway, the Jeans shoes are very comfortable right away IF you are wearing them a bit loose, like loose enough laced up that you can slip them on and off without needing to unlace them. Which is how I will mostly wear them. If I wanted to wear them a bit more snugly for whatever reason, I feel like a breaking in period would then be required because the tongue is actually connected to the body of the shoe, which I didn't know--it wasn't specified on the website and you couldn't tell from the pictures that this was the case. The issue with the tongue being connected to the body is that if you tighten the shoe up, the tongue folds and bunches up a bit where it meets the body and it's not very comfortable. It's not horrible, but I think if I were to wear my shoes like this all the time, it would probably not be an issue after a few weeks of breaking them in. All in all, a cool shoe.
These have got to be the most comfortable basketball shoes I have ever worn. The primeknit and inner booty (Geofit) is like a nice form fitting sock for your feet. It actually grooves to the shape of your feet over time. The boost is hands down the best cushion in the market right now and is plush and bouncy. These really are the ultra boost of the basketball shoe line up. Lockdown is great in this shoe.. No heel slippage and my toes did not smash into the toe box like how it does in the D Rose 7. As for fit, the fit is true to size. It works well for people with wide feet. If you actually feel the outer sole, such as when you wipe dust off, you'll notice just how wide these shoes are. Now here is the biggest issue with what could have been the greatest basketball shoe to date. The durability of the outer sole is really REALLY bad. Very poor quality. Ive been playing in these for about two weeks and I only play indoors on wood floor. There are already major signs of wear and tear, some parts of the heel area have already completely ripped off. There are like two other reviews that say this and show pictures, and I believe those two guys play indoors as well. I already feel the traction fading away and im sure in another few weeks it may even be bald. Overall, these are awesome shoes and definitely the most comfortable on the market right now. Everything was perfect except the durability of the outsoles. If Adidas used a different rubber compound and used the traction pattern of the D Rose 7 on these Crazy explosives then we have a clear hall of fame basketball shoe. My advice - don't even think about playing with these outside. Almost perfect, almost.
Had the pure boosts before this, these surpass those in comfort which tells you a lot given how comfortable the pure boosts already are. Love the style of the uncaged version too bad the other colors are sold out.
Amazingly comfortable. I want to wear these everywhere. One downside is it runs large. I usually wear size 11 shoes and the size 11 of these was about a half size to full size too big. But still amazing.
It's amazingly comfortable. It's like foam but what's better is thereally is also foam /padding on the upper part of the sandal . The part with the adidas logo. A must buy Sizing : my tts is 8.5 so I went with an 8 and fits perfect
So Adidas ask me: So Michael, what do you think? Me: I love it! The sneaker is priced at a reasonable price, the strap makes the sneaker a 10 in style and what makes everything better is that the sneakers are COMFORTABLE!
So awesome that Adidas brought back a classic. Keep the colors coming. It's a bummer when it's the same 3 colors (black, navy and red). Just purchased my 3rd pair in less than 2 months. This shoe is stylish and comfortable. When I used to play indoor soccer I used this shoe and I would go through a pair in no time. Then it was up to the sporting good store to buy the newest color. Looking or purple or royal blue next (I have green, lime (neon yellow) and orange is on the way with red in the cross hairs). Gazelles are perfection in suede! Now bring back the old Tobaccos!
Different than typical Weightlifting Shoe. The Boa Laces are very nice (easy to get in and out of shoe). Very stable platform and solid during OLY Lifts. I would still have preferred a mid-foot strap for these. It does take a few lifts to get the shoe really broke in and snug. I get many complements about the look of the shoes. Overall I am very pleased with the purchase.
I am a huge fan of the original Adidas Ultra Boost running shoes. Having said that the only reason I'm not giving this shoe 5 stars is because the new elastic band they have added above where the shoe traditionally would stop has a seam running down the middle of it that comes to an end at the top and it destroys the back of my ankles when I run. There is only one pair of socks I own that are high enough sit in that same area and cushion it so for now band aids it is.
Best shoe I own! I own a few pair of nice shoes and these are the go to when I need a comfortable pair. I just wish that adidas would have more in stock. I've been on the website for two weeks straight trying to purchase the Original Ultra Boost.
I love the product. My girlfriend got them for me and i never stopped wearing them. The only problem i had with them was that there weren't any sizes for my girlfriend. She's a 4 and they were only available from size 8 and up. Hopefully that can change. Other than that, the product is amazing.
I love them!! I am a female and i wear a size 8. I orderered a Men's 7 and they fit great. The only thing i would maybe change is the material a little darker. It's black but it looks a little grayish/greenish finish I'm assuming because of the suede or whatever material it is. They are excellent for the price tho. I love them!
It's a great shoe until you make a sharp turn, then your foot slips off the insole and rips the styrofoam looking material away from the knit part of the shoe. The comfortability of the shoe is tremendous but I feel that adidas could have done a little more to ensure this doesn't happen.
