I had such high expectations about this shoe, after a .5 change in size for being too narrow, I switched to 11, used it once and now I am unfortunately unable to return. I own another 3 pair of Boosts and this is the most uncomfortable by far, the arch pain the inner plastic body of the shoe causes makes this unwearable. 180 dollars down the drain.
Besides the amazing fresh new design , the comfort is amazing. I own some of the Ultra boosts and although the bounce doesn't have Boost , it's really up there in terms of the comfort. And the price tag is even more amazing. All shoes should cost this much lol
What a great running shoe for the price ! This is what the ultra boost should have been. The Alphabounce is a real comfortable shoe with nice rebound. These are a more firm feel compared to any shoe with the Boost material but they have a good feel of their own. The upper seamless material is very comfortable. Not as restrictive as the techfit in the 1st and 2nd gen energy boost and not as tight as the ultra boost. It has just the right amount of secure and firm snug fit with out restricting the movement of your foot and it has a better vent system as well. I have 3 pairs of Alphabounce each in a different color
The purpose of this appraisal is to evaluate the Adidas Ultra Boost running shoe based on three criteria. These criteria include comfort, durability, and performance. With the latest technology integrated into their product, Adidas claims that the Ultra Boost is currently the best running shoe on the market. Therefore, the targeted market for this product is frequent runners (~30 miles per week). Comfort When looking for a running shoe, comfort is my main priority. I define comfort as the ability to go on a 10 mile run without feeling any discomfort. The Adidas Ultra Boost integrates one of its newest technologies, Boost, into the sole of the shoe. The Boost sole literally feels like you’re walking on a cloud. It is extremely responsive and you feel the material squish with every step. This helps to minimize the negative impact that running has on your joints. Unfortunately, I did notice that the shoe fits very narrow. If you are someone with wider feet, you might want to find a wider shoe. After wearing the Adidas Ultra Boost for multiple runs and feeling no discomfort in my feet, I can confidently say that the comfort of the Ultra Boost is top-of-the-line and ideal for frequent runners. Durability Since the Adidas Ultra Boost is relatively expensive ($180), most users are going to want to get their money’s worth. I define durability as a shoe that can remain in good condition for 6 months while running 30 miles per week. In my experience, I have went on 10 mile runs every other day for four months, and the shoes have shown minimal signs of wear. The tread on the bottom of the shoe is still fresh, resulting in a great grip between the shoe and the terrain. Based on what I have already experienced, I expect this great condition to continue for the next several months. Therefore, the Adidas Ultra Boost is great in terms of durability for frequent running. Performance I rate the performance of a running shoe based on its support and grip. The upper part of the Adidas Ultra Boost is constructed out of Primeknit, a formfitting material that adapts to the natural curvature of the foot. Primeknit provides a snug, sock-like fit, ensuring that your foot is well supported. The Continental rubber outsole is made from the same material as automobile tires—ensuring the best grip in wet and dry conditions. The performance of the Adidas Ultra Boost is unmatched by other shoes. After a thorough evaluation of the Adidas Ultra Boost, I can see why Adidas claims to have created the best running shoe. The Ultra Boost has excelled in comfort, durability, and performance, making it an ideal shoe for frequent runners. I highly suggest purchasing this shoe, and I hope you have the same positive experience that I’ve had.
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.
the shoes gripped very well over rocks and roots. I walk trails off Blue Ridge parkway. I'm a weekend warrior walker. The shoes did great. I will be buying more in the future. They are lite, easy to walk in.
The Ultra Boosts are great shoes with two critical flaws in my experience (if you are using them as running shoes): 1) Primeknit durability, and 2) sockliner quality. 1) Primeknit durability: Within a few months of use, the Primeknit upper (which is super comfortable, btw) started to fray on the outside of the left foot. A month later, there was a visible hole that got bigger with each run. The shoes will soon be retired to "around the house" wear as my pinky toe is starting to poke out of the shoe. Suboptimal performance for a shoe at this price point. 2) Sockliner quality: After a few runs, I noticed that the balls of my feet would hurt after a mile or so. I took out the sockliner, compared it to the sockliner in my Energy Boost 2s, and noticed that the Energy Boost had a much thicker sockliner. I put those in my Ultra Boosts and the problem went away - I'd recommend doing something similar if you get these, but adidas should consider a redesign to address the issue. Overall impression: great shoe for everyday wear, good running shoe with some critical flaws, and recommend with some hesitation.
Only one complaint... the back/top of the shoe rubs against my heel. Have to wear these shoes with taller socks or they'll rub your heels raw. Other than that, these shoes are awesome. Super comfortable (as long as I'm wearing the right socks), great to run in, and they look great.
This is the second pair of Kanafia shoes for me. I like them much better than the Terrex and GTX trail shoes. I have owned all of them and I do prefer the smaller profile soles on the Kanadia shoes. I have owned several pairs of the Adidas trail shoes and these are the best. They have redesigned the look of the Kanadia shoes. Very light and comfortable - a very good purchase.
Had the pure boosts before this, these surpass those in comfort which tells you a lot given how comfortable the pure boosts already are. Love the style of the uncaged version too bad the other colors are sold out.
I like the looks of these sneakers (Ultra Boost ST). But that's it. I to a couple people here and a friend that for Adidas. They all thought that these would work for me. I work all nite on a concrete floor and my feet hurt bad. And my knees to. I'm a big person. So I bought these for only work. tried them last nite. I made it for about 3 1/2 hours and to go back to my old sneakers. The Ultra Boost ST's end up not really helping. No arch support. I am very disappointed. For what they cost and the way I was told I expected more from them.
Cant say enough good things about them. A great running shoe. My knees and legs love them. No pain or discomfort after a good run. Thats coming from someone with a hx of knee pain. I guess im a girl who is officially in love with mens running shoes.
It's not been a year since I bought these shoes and the sole has cracked of both the shoes. I have a back problem so I needed shoes with extra cushion, I don't run I just walk and they couldn't sustain even a year. Spending $192 for 10 months is not justifiable. i don't know how long will they last for the people who run.
Unlike all the hypebeasts out there I actually run in these, with that said I can say that these are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever had. very comfortable. They also give you that spring in your step you need for running. 10/10
I have a different color pair for each day of the week. I am not even kidding. Some for dress and some for hard wear. Hands down this is the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. For anything. Boost tech is incredible. Mix in the Primeknit upper and it becomes better yet.
This is my favorite shoe of all time because of comfort and aesthetics BUT for 180$ they wear out very fast I'm not even running in them and after one day of just waliking at school I had parts of the sole That were all worn out and flat PLEASE MAKE OUTSOLE MORE DURABLE!!
I am a huge fan of the original Adidas Ultra Boost running shoes. Having said that the only reason I'm not giving this shoe 5 stars is because the new elastic band they have added above where the shoe traditionally would stop has a seam running down the middle of it that comes to an end at the top and it destroys the back of my ankles when I run. There is only one pair of socks I own that are high enough sit in that same area and cushion it so for now band aids it is.
mesh over the front toe area is not supportive enough. On a down hill run my foot slides forward laking enough stability. That said it is the most comfortable run in my life. Looking for a different model with more support up front with the same comfort. HHmmmmm
I'll start by saying I bought these for running and casual wear. I am really excited about these shoes. They are extremly soft and have responsive cushioning, I Didn't get what that meant until I actually put in the running miles. I live in the city so mainly I run on hard pavement and these bad boys did everything right, when your foot hits the ground it supports all of your foot and not just the heel and when your ready to go up for the next stride it is really good at responding to that. I urge those on the fence as I was for three months to get em! Worth the expense if it doesn't dent your wallet so badly. Also for my fellow sneakerheads these look great with joggers, jeans, and khakis, no question they are worth the hype.
Best shoe I own! I own a few pair of nice shoes and these are the go to when I need a comfortable pair. I just wish that adidas would have more in stock. I've been on the website for two weeks straight trying to purchase the Original Ultra Boost.
I've been wearing this shoe casually for the past 2 weeks and I could not be more happy with it. The shoe is unbelievably comfortable. It's great for people who've come off of knee surgery. It provides the shock absorption that I so desperately need. Big ups to Adidas for making a quality shoe
I have long been a serious adidas fan and when I saw this shoe I had to try it. I wanted this shoe as a runner and a trainer and it did not disappoint. I've always used adidas specialty shoes for fencing using their fencing specific shoes for fencing training and competition. As a fencer and runner I put a lot of abuse on my feet so I always look to adidas for footwear. This she is excellent not just for its low price tag but for any shoe of any price. The support is perfect for me and the responsiveness and bounce I find to work well for me. A great shoe loved it so much I bought two pairs, one in the hard to find core black/crystal white aramis dot pattern and one in the core black metallic silver. I don't wear this as a lifestyle shoe but as a functional runner and trainer and even use for fencing practice. For me this shoe is simply excellent.
It's a great shoe until you make a sharp turn, then your foot slips off the insole and rips the styrofoam looking material away from the knit part of the shoe. The comfortability of the shoe is tremendous but I feel that adidas could have done a little more to ensure this doesn't happen.
Great sneakers! They run about a 1/2 size big but they are extremely comfortable. I like the style of the shoe and I can't wait for other color ways. My only issue with the shoe is that the material gets dirty really quick. I chose the grayish color and I have so many stains on them from running. All black is my next choice
Great running shoes. The cushioning is the best that I have ever had in a shoe. Very comfortable and there is a very noticeable difference when running with these. The only slight complaint that I have with these is that I usually run with ankle socks and because of the design of the shoe my ankle ares is rubbing against the lip of the shoe which is slightly irritating but I think will get better as I break them in. These are a bit expensive but for me I think they are definitely worth it because they are far and away the best running shoes I have ever worn.
