micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I did 3 runs with the Ultra boost so far. The first was a 12k in which I set a new personal best without even trying to run fast. The second was a 12k I ran at a pace of 5 minutes per k ( 8 minutes mile) and my heart reate was way lower than normal at that speed. Today i did a 26k run and the pace was good. The shoe fits well. After having run only 50k with these shoes, I find that the wear is excessive. Some of the nobs are already completely gone. Compared with the other boost shoes I've had the wear is excessive. That's the only issue I have with this shoe. If Adidas can fix the wear issue, they have a real winner here. For the price they cost, this will turn out to be an expensive shoe, because i don't see myself getting the same mileage out of these shoes.
I didn't like last year's Crazy Light Boost bc of the traction and terrible forefoot cushioning. Adidas addresses both those issues with an awesome traction pattern as well as increasing the foam in the forefoot. The shoe really feels like a running shoe but made for hoops. Primeknit is fantastic and has a nice little skeleton inside the upper for extra Support. Boost as always is awesome and really makes the shoe stand out IMO. I bought my normal sz 11 and these fit perfectly. Great job Adidas !
I have done three runs in these shoes a five mile, seven mile then on Saturday nineteen miles - Shoes are really nicely cushioned. I went down by half a size from original adidas boost. I bought two pairs 10.5 and 11 and took them on and off so better than buying from a running shop to dither but these are better to be close fitting. Bit heavier and less speedy than previous models. I had a sore toe before the run due to a black nail but ran for 3 hours and it was fine. The uppers are great. Lovely cushioning great for my sore Achilles and no problems after 19 mile long run so fantastic for a marathon. But .... the outsole is worn after just 30 miles - the pimples are down to nothing - is the rubber too soft - I'm concerned they wont last 100 miles. I have attached photo which shows some of the slightly worn pimples and some have worn to be flat - is this a major flaw if so adidas will get a lot of returns
A couple of things to mention, I love the Energy Boost, I love the Adios Boost. One of the things I love about Energy Boost is that first 200 meters when you set off and it feels like you are just floating compared to other shoes. When I saw the release of the Ultra Boost and the opportunity to place a pre-release order I knew I would buy them. Have run a couple of times in them now, 7mi and 8mi. Today was a 6'49" steady run. First thing was early pace surprised me, started up a big hill and Ultra Boosts made sub 7 uphill feel relatively easy. Boosts seem to suit my stride as in them it really flows and feels very smooth, U Boosts are no different in this respect. Have also found them better than Energy Boost at minimising soreness after the run. E Boosts were good in this respect but U Boost seems even better. The shoe feels totally neutral, even more so than the E Boost. Today was a light mist and ground slightly greasy, but grip of new Boosts was never really in question. As is mentioned in the PR materials, the upper is really special. It literally does fit like a glove. In E Boost I went a 1/2 size up to UK11, but in U Boost 10.5 fits me perfectly. Due mainly to the stretch of the Primeknit. I think the 1/2 size up would have been too big for me. In Adios Boost I also take 10.5, so if you have Adios Boost the same size in U Boost is fine. I guess looks are a personal preference, but my last E Boosts were Black with red inner, so for me the initial release of U Boost in Black with the blue heel cup would be my first choice in any case. They do look really nice! To summarise, I am really happy with the shoe so far, it feels fast, protects my legs even better than E Boost, fits like a glove, grips really well and looks better than the other 19 or so shoes in my collection!
I bought the black pair and the stripes on the ankles, after about 3 pickup games were already starting to peel/rub off. Overall though, the shoe broke in nicely, fits your foot wonderfully. The JOHN WALL 1 gives you amazing balance, which helped improve my shot blocking, stealing, as well as my speed on the court.
This shoe broke in fairly quick which was nice. It took me about 2 games to 24 roughly about 50min. The ventilation is great too! As soon as I put them on heads were turning, overall its a great shoe for anyone looking for a Basketball shoe or just to wear around town.
First, this shoe is amazing. Im an ex-collegiate T&F athlete with a neutral gate and forefoot-midfoot runner. I'm approx 200lbs, and need a cushioned ride. I've been looking forever for a shoe with enough fore-mid foot cushioning for the heavier, neutral runner and I feel as though everything is focused on Heel cushioning these days but this is amazing for the mid-forefoot striker! Extremely cushioned and soft yet responsive, feels great on the foot, needed two days to break the shoe in, and no injuries since I've had them. You don't want to take these babies off, believe the hype. I almost missed out on a great shoe.
Pure Boost 2.0's? It is pure perfection. I have bought and worn many many shoes. I have owned the Nike Roshe's and worn them out. I wanted a new casual but comfortable shoe to wear on an everyday basis. Light and comfortable are understatements for this Adidas shoe. You barely notice you are wearing a shoe and as soon as you take a step, it feels as if there is a cloud under your foot. For a littler more money, I would definitely buy the Pure Boost 2.0's over the Roshe's. Due to Adidas trying to reduce the weight as much as possible, there is not much lateral stability. I wouldn't recommed running in these. (These should be in the Casual section) The Boost Cushioning is phenomenal. The upper is breathable and lightweight. Definitely order these. (I received mine in about 2/3 business days even with the basic free shipping, great service)
The Pure Boost is the most comfortable pair of shoes i've ever worn. The boost feels incredible and upper just feels like i'm wearing a pair of slippers. Without the torsion system the boost is incredibly flexible and this helps a lot in making the shoe as comfortable as it is. The only thing that i would change is to add a couple more lace holes.
I don't typically reach out to a company to tell them how I feel about their product unless I have a poor experience with them. Due to how awesome these things are, I felt compelled to contact you about my experience, which has been nothing short of revolutionary. Profile: 42 M Runner for 4 years. 30-40 miles a week, completed marathon. Run half marathon distance most every weekend. I have run in Brooks Glycerin for a couple of years now and have been pretty happy. I moved to them after starting with Mizuno Wave Rider after experiencing a lot of pain in my knees that just didn’t go away. An acquaintance of mine recommended Adidas Boost. I researched them a bit before taking the plunge. I am VERY happy with them. Actually, I am ecstatic! I’ve run in them for 3 weeks now and the claims made are all legit. I rarely run 3 days in a row due to fatigue and soreness in knees, hips, and hamstring. I get none of that with these. I feel like I am being propelled while I run. The cushioning is superb; so much so that I almost feel like I am cheating when I run. They give me an advantage and I run a lot faster with them. During my regular runs during the week I go about 7-9 miles 3-4x a week before my longer run on the weekends. My pace is significantly faster. This may seem like a crazy claim, but it is absolutely true. I typically run at a 9:30 pace. I am averaging 8:40 – 8:45 on my runs now and am not pushing any harder than I did before. Additionally, the soreness I would typically get upon completion is not there. It is simply amazing! I am 100% sold on these shoes and will never be going back to the Glycerin. The difference isn’t small; it is significant. The shoes are especially helpful on the hills. Before I would slow to a snail’s pace on hills to conserve energy required to climb. When you strike on your heal in these things, you get a great bounce and will use much less energy than before. It is awesome. I feel like a fine tuned machine running in the Boost and enjoy my runs more due to less fatigue, less soreness/pain, more cushioning, and faster times. I feel sorry for neutral runners who have not discovered these shoes. I expect to improve my marathon time significantly and avoid the “bonk” in the later miles I experienced in my last marathon. These are expensive shoes, but I would gladly pay double what the Glycerin cost based on their performance and my experience with them thusfar. If my former self as a Glycerin user ran against me now, he wouldn’t stand a chance of keeping up. The only drawbacks to the shoe that I see: 1) They are narrow. I have narrow feet, so that is fine, but they will fit snug for someone that doesn’t have narrow feet. 2) Lacing them up is different than Brooks; it takes a little more work due to the way it is designed. 3) The tongue isn’t long enough. When lacing them up, you have to be sure to get the laces over the tongue, which tends to slide under the laces. 4) Toe box isn’t very roomy. I do miss that about the Glycerin. I hope this is a modification they make in the future. These drawbacks are minor and the only one that I really would like see changed in the toebox. Outside of that, the ride of this shoe is superb. If you are a neutral runner, I would 1000% recommend these shoes. I was a little hesitant at first given that Adidas isn’t exactly known for their distance running gear, but man was I wrong! You will feel more refreshed, have better endurance and less pain. You will not regret trying these shoes. Absolutely revolutionary as far as I am concerned.
I work on concrete floors all day, walking close to 5 miles a day. These shoes are like walking on beds of squishy marshmallow wonderment. I am sure if i round housed someone in the face with these on, they would thank me for the soft, gentle embrace of encouragement the sole of this shoe provides. Four of my co- workers have made the same investment in their soles! 3 X45 degrees for life!
This shoe is one of the most comfortable pair of basketball sneakers currently. If you like the on court feel.. this shoe has it! If you like great court traction.. got it!! If you like the comfort of a sock while having great support and heel lockdown.. Go get this shoe!! You will not be disappointed!!.. unless you do not like low tops.
It's Thursday evening, I'm sitting in my room and have just ordered these shoes, i'm excited. I go on about my business and the only downside with the whole experience was it took longer than their 3-5 working days delivery estimation. I understand this is an estimation, however I came home from work everyday only to be disappointed it hadn't arrived. But, finally they arrived. I tore through the packaging like a raging bear through the wilderness chasing it's prey. Then Bam, I hit bedrock. There they were in all their beauty and splender. I instantly strapped them to my feet and air squatted til I couldn't no more. ( Good thing is these shoes just make you want to squat. ) I'm not an expert by any means when it comes to weightlifting shoes, but these puppies were nice, especially for what I want to use them for, which is why I didn't splash out a little more for a more expensive pair. They feel solid, but you can still walk around in them, without looking suspicious. They feel great wearing them, I purchased a size 11, however a friend of mine let me try on his 10's and whilst they felt tighter, I probably couldn't have squeezed into those for my particular sessions. And so for long term use, I thought I would go for 11's just to be comfortable - but that's not saying i'm walking around in a pair of slippers, these puppies still feel good. That leads me into my first workout with them, I decided we'll put them to the test with power cleans. They instantly felt good. I don't know if it was the shoes, or the excitement the shoes brought, but I managed a new PB in both cleans and front squats. I was like you, who I probably imagine are trolling through the comments section because you really want to buy a pair but you're just not sure if you should pay splash out the dolla, so you're looking for someone to convince you. Do it. These shoes are perfect for the keen, enthusiastic gym goer, like myself, who is messing around a lot with power movements and Olympic lifts. In saying that, I'm not throwing around massive numbers, or squatting with big big weight myself. But Put it this way, if you squat, clean, or snatch - get these shoes. Many people will tell you that they aren't necessary, and that it's all about your form, not your gear. Whilst I completely agree with the form statement, doing those particular movements in a pair of running shoes, defeats the whole purpose. Running shoes are designed to absorb impact and absorb pressure. If you're trying to rip a bar to your shoulders you want all of the power you're generating to go straight to a solid surface. And as far as the barefoot argument goes, you'll be able to stay more upright with a bar on your back/shoulders and sit into the squat more if you're heels are risen slightly above your toes, than you would if you're foot is flat. The people who really want to get you down are the people who couldn't justify the purchase and/or have the money, they will tell you well it's false gains etc, help from gear. At this moment you should just leave their company as they talk absolute madness. Just because you put these shoes on doesn't mean you're going to hit serious numbers, let's get that'l straight, but like the title suggests, they promote better form, which in turn will help you hit bigger numbers. As I say, I'm no expert. But if you're toying with the idea, if I was you, ( which I was ) I would give them a go. Happy lifting x
Nice shoe. I have been using them happily for squats, OHP, and deficit DLs. They are comfortable, stable (although I am only 125lb so not squatting massive numbers), light in my gym bag, economical, and even get compliments for their appearance. A note on size for any other gals purchasing this shoe: I'm a woman's size 8 and got men's size 6.5 as recommended on a lifting forum and they fit like a glove. The men's size 7 which I "should" be per the sizing chart would definitely have been too large.
i really enjoy the boost technology !!! these are good for me because they almost have a 0 drop and since I am a mid-foot strike runner , my natural stride feels really comfortable and with the boost this shoe feels really good, this model is great for my style. I wish the toe box would be bit wider, but the shoe body mesh is incredible and it is super comfortable on the foot and toes. I really like how the shoe hugs around the heel and bottom part of the ankle and the body of the shoe hugs well around the foot, so no slipping . I wonder how they'll fair at track practice, maybe that will be another review.
