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 bought a pair of these in February, & I've hardly taken them off since. They've become my "thing" among my friends. I purchased the classic white & black, & despite the gold details, they go great with everything. They were extremely comfortable from the first time I put them on. They didn't require any breaking in. The fit was great, other than that I had to lace up the very top hole & I have to retie them throughout the day to keep my heel from slipping out when I walk. This is probably because I wear a women's 8.5/9 & this is a men's shoe, however. They breathe well & my feet don't get too hot wearing them. Really comfortable to walk around in all day. I'm looking forward to buying more in the future!
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.
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 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
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.
Again!!! Detroit is Known For Rockin Top Tens since the Early 80's. I say Bring Back the Patent Leather Adidas SkyWalkers and Patent Leather Top Ten High with the Strap and the Low Top 2 Strap Edition. I also think You should Re-Release Patent Leather 3/4 Concords with the Strap And Those Limited Edition Top Tens With the Fur inside without Breathing holes on the Toe, in the Navy Blue and the Burgundy Colorway!!! I wear a Size US 12 in Every Shoe But Adidas!! I have learned to Buy a Size 13!! I have no Problem with this Now that I know!! I love this Shoe!! Gets No Better!! Style and grace, Best Shoe to Match with any pair of Pants!! Ten fold for Hard Levis Blue Jeans!!
Been a loyal adidas fan since I was in 10 years old (25 now), over that span I've owned 4 pairs of Superstars, one of which being the original Superstar I's, (now defunct. why is that?). Bought another pair and I guess they rebranded the 2's as "Superstar Foundations." They fit a bit bigger than my last pair, the laces ARE thinner, and where are the lace locks?! adidas, WHY do you keep on trying to reinvent the circle? Why mess with the classics? If it ain't broke, don't fix it, and the SUPERSTAR 2's didn't even need any repair, nor did the 1's! Please bring back the ORIGINAL 1's, the 2's, and the 2G's. Keep your Originals original!
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.
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!
The soles are nice and grippy and have tiny little studs on the edges that I haven't seen with a lot of other skate shoe. They're extremely comfortable to wear casually or while skating, and after a week of skating they still look new. I chose these particular shoes because I hate for skate shoes to be too fat because of all that cushion, but this is just the right amount to look nice and give protection
There is only one problem with this clear. Adidas needs to make it in solid colors. A solid black, a solid grey, a solid white, etc just like the original Adidas 5 star 4.0's. Just make them in every color they make of the 4.0's I not just make them in those basic colors please. I need these cleats to match my uniform.
I'm not going to lie, I bought these bc I love Dame. The shoes looks great, and have a fresh look. Performance wise, I wish they had Boost but can't beat $105. Played in these and they fit fine in my normal 11 but I recommend going down 1/2 size if you want a more secure fit. I had some heel slip but I usually do in almost all lows and wasn't a deal breaker. Cushioning is good overall and traction is MONEY. Love all the colorways coming out.
This is what you call quality! Not only is Lillard slowly taking over the league his shoe is being slept on.. This is straight fire! For basketball Adidas sticks with performance instead of style for the best experience but, with this DLillard1 they killed it with the proformance & STYLE! This shoe looks great, feel great & worth every penny.. Not to mention it's the shoe of the best player in the NBA. #Lillard4MVP
I love these shoes. I have Multiple pairs of Energy Boosts (1.0 & 2.0), and the Adios Boost. Next to the Adios, these are my favorite. My one complaint, mirrors at least one more review that I've read here, in that the outsole, on the Ultras, wears rather quickly. It's hard to complain about it really, because that is probably what contributes to the excellent grip that they have, it's just that for $180..... The Primeknit makes these feel amazing snug, while still allowing me to not feel too constricted. It's kind of hard to explain. Really great shoes. Give them a go if you're on the fence, just keep that outsole wear in mind.
