micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
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 owned every Adios version and colour since tthe begining which was the yellow and black worn by Halie Gebrselassie............this latest shoe has all the ingredients of being the ultimate runners dream flat. Adidas have nailed it with this latest iiretation of the Adios. Old meets new. Amazing fit, down to the new shoe laces which have an elastic feel. The boost just tops it all of. Please Adidas don't change this shoe. You have got the right formulation now. All we need are more colours. "Immosibble is nothing" in the new Adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2. Expect to break your PB's I have...
Great shoes, the speed lace system is impossible to find in ANY stores if you have to replace it. You have to contact the company that makes the shoes for Adidas. This company is AGRON and the number is 1-800-966-7697. They were very good to work with and sent a replacement lace system out free of charge.
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.
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 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.
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
I just finished my first 10-mile CRIM following about 12 miles of break-in on these shoes. I ordered a half-size above dress-shoe size, as recommended, but the fit is still quite snug, making them a little tricky to get my wider feet into. Bottom Line; during the 10-mile race, I never even noticed that I had shoes on my feet. I have zero frontal shin pain as I've experienced with other shoes. No foot pain whatsoever. These are perfect for the mid-to-heel striker. Light, cool, a great street-racing shoe. I have found shoe love once again.
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'm a huge fan of the Adios series, having owned each variation over the years. I enjoyed the Boost after getting used to the new springy sole over 30 or so miles. The Boost 2 is more of the same good stuff that was introduce by the Boost. The improvements are that the build quality of the 'pure' Adios line is apparent - gone are the plastics which didn't quite work (and actually dug in to the top of my foot). I did think that the laces wouldn't stay tight as they're smoother than the grippy laces we're used to on this line - i was wrong, they work well. My only issue after 40 miles in these is that they instantly felt small on my foot. I've always worn an 11.5 in every iteration and this time things felt tight - my toes felt like they were right up against the end of the shoe. I thought it could just be the change in design and ran with it. After 3 runs it's slightly better but I clearly need to go up at least half a size. I recently got an end of line pair of Adios 2's and have no issue with the fit at 11.5. Please try them before you buy, or at least consider jumping up a half size.
ok, well i picked up a brand new pair of shoes for $160, first impressions were good, the look of them is amazing, i got the black ones because they look CRAZY!! they're the best shoes i have bought and without a doubt i would recommend them to a friend! they're comfortable like walking on pillows, although I would not recommend them for running, maybe grass and road running but no crazy stuff. the support is there, the comfort is there and the look is there. BUY THEM!! BOOST IS AMAZING!!!!!
Very light and helps your foot do its natural work without over support, no joint or leg shock and great rebound. Last year I competed in 5 half marathons and 2 full at age 61 and this is the best shoe yet - helped me get a first and 2 seconds in my age group in major west coast events.
The perfect running shoe: so light you almost feel barefoot. Continental rubber gives amazing traction. Boost is the best impact absorption material PERIOD. The shoe gets more comfortable to more often you run in it, as the insole forms to your foot. I like the lower heel to toe drop as well. Overall a better running stride for me, plus much better stability when doing high speed and intensity drills like 100s etc. Honestly my favorite purchase of any athletic product ever! You will love this shoe!!
I went to an adidas store to try these on after reading all of the rave reviews about the boost.. and I have to agree with the general consensus: these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Commuting in the city is a breeze when you have clouds strapped to your feet. I can't recommend the boost line enough, do yourself a favor and go try some on. You'll be hooked after just one step.
