micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Good for concrete and track running, comfy and lightweight. To be honest I expected them to be 'bouncier' that a regular running shoe due to the blades, but I don't feel any noticeable difference. You also can't really take them off of a smooth surface at all. I sometimes run along the canal on a surface of small stones and you can hear what sounds like the blades cracking/snapping as you hit the ground which makes you feel uncomfortable, as if they're going to break. Small stones also get wedged in between the blades and you can hear them scrape on the ground as you run.
One of the best shoes I've run in for awhile. Fresh out the box comfort. Good support, while remaining lightweight. Anyone who regularly gets adidas knows the 1/2 size adjustment (U.S.) so the fit was perfect. I've had a hard time taking them off and instead leaning towards buying a second pair.
Well I usually wear 7.5 when I ordered this , it felt like 6.. I put it next to any 7.5 showes and it looked tiny.. I think probably you have to be at least size 10+ to be able to wear this as its design make it look even smaller !!
The shoes fit well though they are on the narrow side since my feet are wide. They are comfortable due to the upper material being able to stretch. I am able to wear them for long periods of time without discomfort.
I like them because they have a cushion and I walk and stand a lot so it had a bounce to my steps and it soothed my feet as I walked and had little pain compared to flat shoes and I think I won't ever buy any other shoes!!
Actually like the design and concept but where the exterior plastic sides with the 3 stripes meet the mesh part of the plastic cuts into the foot. I though I could wear it out and with use will break shoes in and somehow soften this area but no chance - longer I wore em the worse they cut into my foot eventually taking them off in sheer agony
I loved the adios 2's, but the toe box was a bit cramped. These 3's are seriously the best shoes I have ever owned. They are a perfect blend of support/cushioning, and road feel/minimalism. I have owned these shoes about two weeks now and they have been the sole reason for me taking my training from 3 to 5 days a week. If you want perfection in a shoe, stop right here.
Used these on 50km trail race and they held up well. Having run in Adizeros before I got away without even wearing them in. No blisters, no issues at all. That said - had the trail been wet, I would have been in all sorts.
This is a mixed review: I normally wear 9.5 running shoes, but these fit great with a size 10. They are very comfortable & provide a lot of support and a snug fit. This was my second pair of Springblades, but I am returning them because the color is wrong. From the description & pictures the look like a bright Red color. However when I received them, they were definitely a Hot Pink / Florescent Orange kind of color - Definitely NOT Red. **I might try again with a different color**
I read alot of reviews about these runners before buying them, people said to order a size up. I am usually a UK9 but ordered a UK9.5, they are a tight (not uncomfortable) fit so a UK10 would have been perfect. I love the styling and colour. I have done 70km so far in these runners and have enjoyed the runs, nice light shoe. I would definitely buy these again.
I have used this trainer for a 5K treadmill run most Mondays for approximately 12-18 months i train at a 17 minute 5K so lets say they have been used at a reasonable pace. This Monday i got off the treadmill to notice that both shoes had snapped clean in half. For a product costing upwards of £100 i don't think this is acceptable. Great trainer if you're going to run slowly but anyone who is going to give them some grief then don't bother.
If you're on a budget and want to get in on the boost action, this is the shoe for you. IMHO This is the second most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Im talking waking on clouds comfy. Right up there with my AM90's. I highly recommend.
I have worn the Adios Boost 1 three times, Adios Boost 2 once, and the Adios Boost 3 once. The forefoot of the 3 is better than the 2 but still not as good as the 1. I like that is is wider near the big toe but the curve on the outside portion of the shown is still too narrow. I had the size up 1/2 size in order for my little toes to not get jammed--which made the shoe feel like "good". I also had to order from the IS as Canada didn't have the 1/2 size. Narrow does not mean high performance. If they widened the outside of the forefront of the shoe would be closer to perfect.
Bought a pair when they first came out. Loved them until oneday I was walking in them and the blades got caught in a grate and the shoe snapped in half both of them.What can I do.. paid alto of money for two shoes now in halfs
Nice to see Adidas rolling out non-Boost running shoes. I don't personally think Boost is a great material for training, especially for recreational runners. This Bounce material is essentially like a dense EVA foam. It's a bit heavy, but the upper is light, utilising a lot of features seen in adizero shoes (light mesh, tireana 'suede'). The material isn't really bouncy, in fact to get a good energy return from it you'd probably need to put a good amount of weight or pressure on them to activate any of that potential, but unlike Boost they are stable. Great for beginning runners, for sure. I wear 9.5 in Adidas runners, which are a bit big for my foot in general but accommodate foot splay and swelling so I can't say for sure whether these fit exactly as other 9.5 Adidas as I alwats have leeway. They don't fit remarkably different however.
Previously ran in the Boston Boost for general training and decided that the Adizero Adios Boost was next to try. Having had this shoe for 11 days covering just under 100 miles and including a marathon, this is one I will definitely continue to use. Training in the Adios Boost feels so effortless. It feels incredibly lightweight but responsive and enough underfoot to provide plenty of cushioning for the roads. I found I went up half size to the Boston which suits me. This is my new shoe of choice for training and racing. Another pair will be ordered very soon. Great work Adidas.
Ok so I bought my first pair of Adios 3 and run about a hundred miles and I felt that the shoe might be a bit small so I bought a second pair half sizer bigger and they were perfect. How good is this shoe? Well it's a fast and light shoe and I wouldn't go over 250mi with them as the rubber wears out pretty quickly. I have a mid foot strike which these shoes are made for and they are so comfortable that I ran a half marathon with them straight out from the box (mainly cause I've had many pairs of them and know the shoe thru out). If you are looking for the perfect running shoe without any bells and whistles then guys - this is the best you can find ! Dear Adidas, Please do not stop manufacturing them and if you will then please let us know before so I can order a truck load of them for future !
I love the shoes. I Have 5 pairs. For years I have had problems with my feet. I have heel spurs, Plantar fasciitis , and a torn posterior tibula tendon... Since I found these shoes my heels never touch the ground anymore I can stay on my feet for hours at a time. I even had custom made orthotics that do nothing for me. Just a cushion for my arch and I am good all day...I would highly recommend these shoes.
As long as Adidas makes Springblades I'll own a pair. They rock comfort and make any surface feel balanced and smooth. The only thing I can protest is the size difference between these and the previous generation of Springblades. I had several of these shoes before they were redesigned and had no fitment issues or comfort issues. The new ones are amazingly soft inside but I have found they seem to fit a bit smaller than the previous build. I'll still wear them, but it was a little disappointing to lose the perfect fit of the last generation.
I love adidad blades and since they came out that's all that I wear. I have about 6 pairs and they all fit comfortable enough to wear all day. My job entails me being on my feet all day and directly after work I go to the gym. I have a really narrow foot and Adidas blades or just playing Adidas seem to fit my foot perfect. They give me the support that I need and are extremely light in weight. I love Adidas blades in would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
Really happy with the adios 3. I run in a few different models and different brands and have to say the adios 3 comes close to nailing the perfect high intensity distance shoe. Perfect blend of cushion and responsiveness. Light weight and a tiny dose of stability. I'm super happy. Was in the Boston before this and am happy I traded down in weight. Classic looks too, means when I retire them from miles I'll be happy to continue wearing them.
I am not a long distance runner. I played football and would have loved these shoes if they were made in my time. I walk and jog some and I am not a little dude. Love this purchase. I have been a Adidas man since grade school.
The Adizero Adios has been my go to running shoe for all road races from 5K up to Marathon. I have owned the Adios 1 and 2 editions. The main difference with the Adios 3 compared with the Adios 2 is that the toe box is wider and this makes for a more comfortable run, esp for long runs. I tend to get a larger size (so EU size 44 instead of 43) and that suits me fine. Boost cushioning great as ever and the new style Continental grip appears better quality than in the Adios 2 and Adios 1 versions and should prove longer lasting. I would recommend this shoe most definitely - little wonder that it tends to be the marathon racing shoe for the elites.
Having already run in the Adios 2 I purchased the Adios 3 when a new pair of shoes was required. They fit and feel exactly like the 2 which i love. The laces on the 3 don't seem to move as freely as the 2, but overall these perfect. Light, responsive and with enough cushioning for long runs.
It came time to replace my Nike Free running shoes and I thought that I'd give the Adidas Solar Boosts a try. I average 30-35 miles a month and prefer a light and flexible shoe so the Solar Boost has been a good choice. I've noticed the arch support is not as high as the Free but it's not a big deal for me. I hope to get 300 miles out of these.
