micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I bought these to wear out and they are exactly what I was hoping for. They look super trendy and feel like a million bucks. So impressed Adidas. Who knows, maybe I'll try a run in them when my Pure Cadence wear out.
I love these shoes! I'm training for football and had a pair of nikes and the comfort level was night and day. Really recommend these for quick lateral movements, balance based workouts, and lifts. Extremely comfortable and well worth the money. Still wish I got the navy blue and red ones when I had the chance :,(
I have a different color pair for each day of the week. I am not even kidding. Some for dress and some for hard wear. Hands down this is the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. For anything. Boost tech is incredible. Mix in the Primeknit upper and it becomes better yet.
This shoe is interesting. It looks great in pictures but in reality, the material on the toe box - that reverse-studded neoprene - looks cheap in person. This shoe's sole is very comfortable BUT it is a bit narrow for a size 9 (what I normally wear). It also has terrible breathability. Upon closer inspection, some of the the dimples on the polyester are actual perforations but the majority are not. This shoe becomes an oven very quickly. The material on the back of the shoe (the white) is very nice. Overall, shoe is disappointing since it looks and feels worse than what I'd expect from adidas.
Go 1/2 size up (common for Adidas) and you will never buy a different type of shoe in your life. These are literally the MOST COMFORTABLE shoes I have ever worn. Ever. No exaggeration here. When I have a lot of errands to run around town, sometimes I don't want to walk anywhere; then I put these on and...WOW. Everything seems easier. Plus, I use them as everyday shoes, and I have received more compliments on them than any other article of clothing I've ever owned--by FAR (I bought the red/white). Strangers walk up to you just to talk about them! I can't even count the number of people who have asked about them. And every time they do, I give them a whole spiel about how great they are. HIGHLY recommended!!!
I have been training/running half-marathons and marathons in Adidas Energy Boost shoes because I like the way the feel, but the soles would wear out quickly. These shoes I love because they are very comfortable and durable lasting a lot longer period of time and miles. Only con is the plastic side piece can tightness in the mid-foot area with runs over about 5 miles.
Narrow fit but comfortable stride. I usually wear a 9.5 US in Adidas Originals but my Ultra boost were a bit too big in 9.5 so I chose 9 in these but they were pretty tight and my toe was too close for comfort to the tip of shoe. I have returned them for a 9.5 and fit is much better. They synthetic materials look cool juxtaposed together. I am going to do some HIT workouts and see how they stand up.
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.
Awesome training and running shoe. It looks great, comfortable as can be, like walking on air. BUT, taking off a star because the sizing is whacked! Usually wear a size 12, ordered up 1/2 sz to 12.5 and though they fit, barely any wiggle room. Size 13 would probably be perfect. I'd keep that in mind if ordering.
I think that the Pure Boost ZG often gets overshadowed by the Ultra Boost, but it all depends on what type of activity you're using it for. Of all the boost shoes (and I own them all, hah!) I think the ZG is the best for cross training. You get the comfort of boost but a little more rigidity for other activities (lifting, cross training, etc.) as well as great lateral support. And it looks GREAT on foot - better than in the photos!
Most comfortable shoe I have ever ran in. Looks good enough to wear outside of fitness. After 200 miles it's still got the same feeling low impact and coushioned over kill. The QUALITY IS WEAR THIS SHOE MAY FALL SHORT. THIS SHOE WILL NOT LAST ME A YEAR NOT EVEN CLOSE THE BOTTOM GEL/RUBBER MIX WHICH FEELS GREAT AND HAS GREAT TRACTION IS WEARING AWAY SUPER FAST. Like really fast so if your looking for a great shoe for comfort this is it but its gonna have to be replaced in a few months if your a hard runner. Like they say you get what you pay for there won't be any foot injuries in this shoe. Takes care of all foot types, good running form, or bad form with so much cushion it doesn't matter. Breaths well don't recommend doing anything but running and walking.
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.
Why you like the product or why not?I purchased the green and black version of this shoe. The looks are outstanding. All aspects of the shoe are just perfect except for the cushioning for those of us blessed with a few extra pounds.
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.
I had to return these shoes because they were not what I was expecting from adidas boost shoes. I purchased the pure boost ZG because I thought that they would stay significantly more clean than my current pure boost. My biggest–and only–complaint is the toe area. There is a piece of hard material on the inside that guards the front end of the shoe, which caused pain immediately after I put on the pair. The piece (of plastic I assume) makes any sliding of my feet in the shoe painful as the toenails continually bump into the poorly placed piece. Maybe this problem only applies to me, but just in case, I thought I would write a review. I was very satisfied with the look of the shoe; I just do not understand the construction of the shoe.
A few other people mentioned running small, but I felt they were more than 1/2 size too small. I wear a 13, regular in all my other shoes and they fit fine. I got a 14 in the ZG Trainer and it is still a little too small. The length is about right, but with the narrow width I wish I could have ordered a 14.5 or 15. Overall comfort is excellent and shoe quality seems really good. Adidas just needs to figure out sizing and these would be 5 star.
Boost is the best for my feet with plantar fascitis in my left foot I like to be able to do stuff still. Boost allows me to. These shoes are good looking style would order a 1/2 size up mine are QUITE snug as I ordered my normal size.
i have multiple pairs of the ultra boost ST, and fell in love with the olive color of this pure boost. i was hesitant at first to buy a shoe that wasnt as "supportive", but i LOVE this shoe. its very comfortable, has great absorption- feel like i'm running on a cloud!
The shoes are great for indoor gym types of workouts, you can still feel the boost technology not as much as the ultra boost but just enough to allow you to move quickly. The only this I wish they had was additional selections of colors.
These are great shoes along with several other boost technology shoes. I have a pair of these and two ultraboost. There is no shoe comparable to a boost. They are great for training in and running but mostly it is the flare and style they introduce. The primknit. The one piece shoe. nothing else fits like it.
I ordered a pair of these a months ago to replace my worn Nikes. I have to say these shoes have been great sense day one. I run around 6-15 miles a week and so far so good. The bounce is still good, and they have held up fine in the midwest spring weather. FYI do not wear your good running shoes to the gym to lift weights, you will kill the bounce pretty quickly. I make sure I switch shoes if I lift and run on the same day at the gym.
So I have been training in running shoes for years. This is my first pair of trainers and I love them. I am a trainer and member at Title Boxing Club and they really help with lateral movement and stability. The boost material is great and the soles are super sticky. I understand the need for the straps on the sides, but after a couple hours of hard training, they did dig the sides of my feet a bit. One to two hour sessions are fine, but if you wear them for more than that or for casual wear you may find a little discomfort. Not sure if they are worth the 40 buck upgrade from the regular ZG trainers but, that being said, they look great, are super bouncy, help with movement and speed. Great job Adidas
I bought these thinking they would be alright for my gym workouts and light running. I bought these thinking the fit would be there, as the usual quality of shoe I've come to expect however what I got was something else. These kick butt! Seriously! I have not taken them off! The fir is snug so if you have wide feet, buyer beware. The side supports are perfectly cinching so I get good movement. No slippage. The neoprene had me nervous but it paid off because it fits my foot perfectly! Well done to the bad boys of Adidas on this one!
Awesome shoe, but these run 1/2 size small, this was confirmed by an adidas rep after I bought them so thankfully adidas.com has free returns! Can't wait for my new shoes to arrive! Light, but supportive and they look good!
Great design. Tested it out on a run; lightweight, shapes comfortably to your feet, good support for the knees, boost technology does not let down. Plus nice style, perfect to wear at any time. Overall, awesome pair of shoes!
