micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
The shoe isn't the best I had but is pretty good. The sole is not soft like the boost technology. One downside to it is the place where the laces are. It would hurt a little when I walk occasionally but the issue is not groundbreaking. Overall, this shoe is ok.
As usual a very high quality pair of adidas trainers, quick deliver. However had to be returned as they are so tight and narrow I couldn't even get my foot in as neither could my wife and 13 year old son. Shame really as the trainers looked nice and where fantastically well priced.
I think the glide boost 8 is an improvement on the 7 version. Fit is the same but shoe feels more comfortable due to the improved tongue and heel fabrics. Excellent training shoe for high mileage runners and highly recommend it.
The shoes look great and as expected with the boost technology are very comfortable to walk on. However areas such as the tongue and the heal are a little too tight so would recommend buying a 1/2 size larger than usual if possible.
I wouldn't have bought this for 200$ but i got it for 100 so my opinion my differ from those who bought it for higher price. But ignoring that, these are great running shoes. They are light, form fitting, great looking and overall perform very well as running shoes. The upper is entirely primeknit which is very light, breathable and also durable. They are also reflective throughout but I don't really care about that. The soles are nice as well, the boosts soles are alright, i don't really understand the hype about them but they are definitely not bad. The continental outsoles on the other hand are absolutely fantastic at being gripping the ground. The only quip i have about the shoes are minor. I have the grey pair and they look a little too feminie with too much shiny, silvery accents throughout the shoes. And the adidas logo on the tongue gets covered by the laces which will eventually cause the paint the chip off the logo. but whatever if you don't mind the high price and are looking for lightweight running shoes, I'd def recommend these.
I have skinny skinny feet and these things are super snug. The laces are pointless because there's a band that goes over the top of your foot that tightens the shoe. Also, get a half size up, I has to send mine back and get a bigger size. It wasnt even close to normal size for me.
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.
I'm a big fan of the adizero line. This will be my fourth pair. I currently have the Bostons as well as the Adios 3s. While I do enjoy the Bostons, I'd recommend paying the extra change for the Adios 3s. The shoes are similar but the Adios' offer a comfort fresh out the box that is hard to replicate. Just my feet and I's opinion.
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.
I had the shoes for about two months , and did some light running and walking in them, and I didn't wear them every day because I had other shoes, but I was walking yesterday and a huge hole ripped by itself in the mesh of my shoe, after light wear.
First of all I'm a Trainer at a Gym. I would like to say shoes are my number one priority when training. I move around a lot so comfort is number one. These shoes are very light! They have a very nice bounce to them which makes it feel you are quick on your feet. The only drawback is they are narrow at the top height wise. My big toe seems to hit the top easily which can get irritating. Up side I don't notice it always. All in all definitely recommend these shoes.
I love this show it's almost perfect. Very comfortable with every step. To my foot size perfectly. The one and only one thing I wish that toe wasn't quite so sharp. Just a little wider and just a little Great shoe
I have pretty wide feet and normally have to wear a size 13 for the width, but I thought I'd give them a go in a 12 and they fit perfectly. Really comfortable shoes, nice ventilation, generally very happy with them.
This has been by far the best shoe I have bought and owned. These are my everyday shoes from: doing yard work, walking/jogging, biking, working (while standing on my feet 12hrs out my 16hr shift), and just anything.
Been using all 5 versions of the Boston as my general trainer for steady and some tempo runs for some years now and the Boston Boost 5 has been favourite and am now onto my 9th pair with up to 500 miles per pair. They provide a good balance between being fairly light and fairly flexible whilst some providing decent cushioning. As somebody with long and narrow feet they fit well width wise although have always felt could do with them being a fraction longer but at UK 12.5 I have no bigger choices and anyway I've not had any problems with blisters. Prefer a lighter and more responsive shoe like the Adios for racing and interval sessions but as a general trainer I will miss these if the scarity of supply now suggests these are being discontinued.
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.
I bought a couple of pairs of these while training and running the London marathon. I always buy adidas as being a narrow fit these are ideal. I did have to go up a size in these (probably a combination of being slightly smaller fit and feet expanding during training). These are a light weight trainer, so ideal for marathons.
I have ran in the sequence boost 7, 8 and now the 9. The sequence 9 is very plush, supportive and comfortable for runs of any length. I like the "stableframe" method of providing an all around supportive shoe.
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
The shoe without a doubt looks very nice and the boost technology feels great. However this shoe is not the best for running. The toe box is small and the shoe is narrow. Hopefully with more wear they will break in.
Probably the best pair of shoes i've ever owned. They have held up amazingly as regular shoes (like 5 months, and they still look about a week or so old). The tread has worn almost none. I just started running in them, so I haven't given them a real endurance test yet. Extremely breathable, incredible fit, and amazing style.
When is a size 9 not a nine? when you order from adidas. I have been a size nine for more than 20 years since my feet stopped growing and have purchased shoes on this basis without any problems until adidas decided for no apparent reason to change this well understood system? Apparently my feet have grown half a size (or even a full size according to reviews) without me realising and now I should be purchasing a completely a different size apparently? absolutely ridiculous!!
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
I came to purchase these after I noticed how often I was wearing my ultraboosts for casual occasions. I was looking for something with the same feel but loved that these looked more casual and less sporty. In this shoe, I really like the EVA and boost mix. I love the foamy EVA traction and all-over coloration. I like that the ZG colors are chill and the silhouette is not too sporty. I don't wear these to run. I wear them with jeans and slim fitting chinos. I recommend buying a half size larger. I wear a 10 1/2 in the ultraboost and an 11 1/2 in these. My size is normally 11. I don't think the design is perfect (the rubber cage wrap-around thing looks a little strange squashed under the laces) but I like the attempt to make a wearable running shoe that looks good casual/lifestyle. I have the navy pair I'll probably get the grey one as well. The price of these is great. I hope they improve on this shoe and make the elements a little more harmonious. I hope Adidas keeps an incarnation of this around for a while because I'll keep buying them. I am big fan of retro runners and am always trying to pull them off at work. These have the subtle look of those retro runners but with a more modern and durable sole. Nice shoe. I don't normally write reviews, but wanted to in order to inform people to purchase a half size larger. The primeknit version runs truer to size. Why? I don't know.
