micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Good for concrete and track running, comfy and lightweight. To be honest I expected them to be 'bouncier' that a regular running shoe due to the blades, but I don't feel any noticeable difference. You also can't really take them off of a smooth surface at all. I sometimes run along the canal on a surface of small stones and you can hear what sounds like the blades cracking/snapping as you hit the ground which makes you feel uncomfortable, as if they're going to break. Small stones also get wedged in between the blades and you can hear them scrape on the ground as you run.
I bought these for summer use - I like to run cross-country, but running through long grass quickly turns my legs into an itchy rash, which spoils the fun. These solve the problem pretty well - stings and brambles might get through, but those were never the problem I was trying to solve. Out of the box, these will look way too small, and I found that I needed to unzip the handy ankle zips to get them on. I'm not used to wearing tights, so the feel was odd at first. But a few stretches and kicks soon proved they fitted OK (Large size for me at 6 foot 2 with a 33 inch inside leg). A seam runs waistband to crotch, so expect to wear underwear under these, in case you were wondering. Once on I've found them comfortable, and not too hot, in English summer conditions at least.
First, the shoe is a great combination of cushion and response. The transition is seamless between foot plant and toe-off. Second, the upper is very comfortable. While the forefoot is a little narrow for me there are no friction points because the material works with the foot and is very forgiving. Great shoe, wish Adidas had a trail version.
This shoe is perfect for me. I hope Adidas continues to make this shoe without changing much. The last shoe I used was a different brand and was way too cushy and soft and actually ended up causing foot and ankle pain. I switched to the Supernova Glide Boost 8 based on a recommendation and couldn't be happier. I've been running with this shoe for a couple months now. The shoe is supportive, comfortable, and still manages to be responsive. The Boost material is phenomenal. I highly recommend this shoe.
Nice and lightweight. The quality of the materials is excellent as well. This is my first pair of running specific shorts (normally, I wear soccer shorts when I run), and they are the slightest tight around the waist. Again, I can't compare to other running shorts, so that might be typical. The liner/briefs on the inside is nice and not too tight and not loose. I am 5' 10" (178 cm) tall, and the leg opening sits about 2/3 of the way down my thigh...so just about right. They are slightly longer in the back.
This is my first pair of boost and pleased with the fit and feel of the boost sole. However, mine are already showing signs of wear on the sole. I have worn them 5 times clocking 50ish miles and the boost foam is starting to show through the sole, I'm not confident that they'll last another 50 miles. For the price of this shoe I would expect them to last much longer. Very disappointed.
Over the past year I've tried the ultra boost (not enough support) and the sequence boost (too bulky) and I finally found the perfect running shoe for me. I've been running 4-8 miles in these every day for 2 weeks and they've been holding up great. As you can see from the picture the only part that has been wearing down is the plastic torsion system in the middle, but that's not a big deal. If you don't run on rocky trails like I do this wouldn't be a problem for you. Overall this shoe is great!
The Energy Boost are the best training shoe on the market. They are great for high impact work, like sprinting, but are also great for lower impact work, like long runs. They are built for performance and the boost foam is amazing at absorbing impact
A very neat fit for running and training in. The tapered fits well above the shoes. I found the zips at the bottom of the leg useful as, unlike other tracksuit bottoms, allowed me to easily take the tracksuit bottoms off over the shoes. One issue was that the main side pockets lacked zips and depth so items can fall out fairly easily. Although the back pocket contains a zip this is only large enough for a bank card at most. Nevertheless a very good product.
Adidas Supernova Glide 8 This is the shoe I have been looking for. If you are a runner you fully understand what I’m talking about here. We all seek ”that” shoe that will contribute to the pleasures of running, and not just another pair of shoes that will enable you to run. Yes, this shoe enables you to run, but dang it is the most comfortable shoe I’ve had to date. I put in over 50 miles a week on the road…which is difficult on it’s own, since it is road running after all …not trail. But these shoes have really changed my outlook on the road. Quality: I have probably 150 miles on these so far and no major sign of wear and tear. I was worried about the Continental sole, since I had heard it wears fast, I have not experienced this. It’s funny that I talked trash on these shoes before trying them, saying the Boost was a scam. Trust me, it is no scam. We will see if it breaks down, supposedly it does not….it’s like magic. Score 5/5 Comfort: There is a reason why this shoe was voted Runner's World Editor's Choice twice. Fit is snug, not as snug as a Salomon Sense Pro. That said it is not tight in anyway, so wider feet peeps I would not worry too much, the mesh upper I think will adapt nicely. The toe box is no Altra, so if you are looking the spread the toes this is not the shoe. Good ventilation so far, but haven’t had them in temp’s over 90 yet…and not looking forward to that anyways… Weighing in at 10.7 ounces (size 9) I really wish they were a bit lighter, but for an everyday runner it’s within range of competitors. Also, I would rather have a great shoe that weights 10.7 than a bad shoe that weights 9. Score 5/5 Price: At $130 Retail - this is a great price for the Boost line. Anything above this is my tipping point though. 5/5 Looks: Adidas always keeps it so fresh and so clean. Score 5/5 Overall: 20/20
The jacket run small, the zipper is made of poor quality, and the finger holes in the sleeves are rather week. Otherwise the jacket is very light weight and readable and ultimately usable but not perfect, not even close.
The shoes fit well though they are on the narrow side since my feet are wide. They are comfortable due to the upper material being able to stretch. I am able to wear them for long periods of time without discomfort.
I like them because they have a cushion and I walk and stand a lot so it had a bounce to my steps and it soothed my feet as I walked and had little pain compared to flat shoes and I think I won't ever buy any other shoes!!
Actually like the design and concept but where the exterior plastic sides with the 3 stripes meet the mesh part of the plastic cuts into the foot. I though I could wear it out and with use will break shoes in and somehow soften this area but no chance - longer I wore em the worse they cut into my foot eventually taking them off in sheer agony
The energy boost 3 shoe is the best shoe I have ever used, it is extremely comfortable but at the same time still offering loads of support. The design looks great and actually looks a lot better when you see it in real life, so don't be put off by the shiny looking but on the top of the front because it actually looks great in real life. The fit is slightly on the small size and I would recommend going half a size up to get the best fit. The boost technology is outstanding and has the best returning properties out of any sole I have ever seen. Great shoe and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a extremely comfortable, versatile and supportive runner.
Perfect fit and ultimate comfort from run no1, having always used Adidas my opinion might be slightly biased but I couldn't ask for a better trainer. Snug fit comfortable underfoot and with out a doubt an energy boosting run and to top it off aesthetically pleasing on the eye. Can't find any fault and worth every penny spent. Certainly has my vote
This is a mixed review: I normally wear 9.5 running shoes, but these fit great with a size 10. They are very comfortable & provide a lot of support and a snug fit. This was my second pair of Springblades, but I am returning them because the color is wrong. From the description & pictures the look like a bright Red color. However when I received them, they were definitely a Hot Pink / Florescent Orange kind of color - Definitely NOT Red. **I might try again with a different color**
Slightly different fit to other Boost runner, however, they are still comfortable. They are narrower, so that's something worth bearing in mind. Nice shoe for general use and also sprint training, I've found anyway.
