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.
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.
First, the shoe is a great combination of cushion and response. The transition is seamless between foot plant and toe-off. Second, the upper is very comfortable. While the forefoot is a little narrow for me there are no friction points because the material works with the foot and is very forgiving. Great shoe, wish Adidas had a trail version.
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.
This shoe is perfect for me. I hope Adidas continues to make this shoe without changing much. The last shoe I used was a different brand and was way too cushy and soft and actually ended up causing foot and ankle pain. I switched to the Supernova Glide Boost 8 based on a recommendation and couldn't be happier. I've been running with this shoe for a couple months now. The shoe is supportive, comfortable, and still manages to be responsive. The Boost material is phenomenal. I highly recommend this shoe.
I had the shoes for about two months , and did some light running and walking in them, and I didn't wear them every day because I had other shoes, but I was walking yesterday and a huge hole ripped by itself in the mesh of my shoe, after light wear.
First of all I'm a Trainer at a Gym. I would like to say shoes are my number one priority when training. I move around a lot so comfort is number one. These shoes are very light! They have a very nice bounce to them which makes it feel you are quick on your feet. The only drawback is they are narrow at the top height wise. My big toe seems to hit the top easily which can get irritating. Up side I don't notice it always. All in all definitely recommend these shoes.
i still remember the first time to try the boost, already know this new technique will bring adidas more and more great shoes. That feeling is amazing! So this is my second boost shoes. I can't afford an ultra boost which also not fitted to my feet. But I find this one even with discount. I just check yesterday at footlocker, they still sell this shoes at regular price. Haha what a great shoes!
SNug fit around the foot , sole is amazingly bouncy , it does increase the look form a size perspective but i can deal with that . I recently also bought mana bounce which i thought were springy and comfortable but these beat them but i prefer the look on the foot of the mana
This has been by far the best shoe I have bought and owned. These are my everyday shoes from: doing yard work, walking/jogging, biking, working (while standing on my feet 12hrs out my 16hr shift), and just anything.
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!
I bought these shoes purely for the look to begin with and hoped that they fulfilled my needs, as i am very particular about the equipment i use for my training and, all i have to say is WOW! These are without a doubt THE most comfortable training shoes i have ever worn, i don't know why i even hesitated or doubted Adidas! I bought these to replace my old first evolution of Adidas UltraBoost which had worn out the sole, this was one of the reasons i hesitated as i wanted to make sure they had a hard wearing sole as well as full Boost cushioning. They have lived up to all expectations so far and have since become my new all purpose training shoes. I have slightly wider foot than normal and change my planting style based on the incline i am facing, but they are a solid platform for heel or ball planters and more than comfortable in both styles of running. I was concerned about the angle of the sole at the rear, thinking it was bit 'top heavy' and might end up rolling my ankle on the trails, but no, its perfectly sturdy and comfortable. The only minor gripe i have is the loose grey band encasing the shoe under the laces. I don't know why or what it is for!? I think it may be an attempt to potentially use the shoe as some kind of slip-on for a fashionable wearer, but it simply bunches up under the laces and serves no real world purpose. Other than that, a very good training shoe!!! Top notch!!!
the shoes are good but not great. For the "comfort" advertised it doesnt reach the potention. A Lunarglide is more comfortable than this. But it looks amazing and I wear it like a casual shoe and that is what it is and nothing more/
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.
These were my first pair of Boost shoes. Was hesitant to pay that much but I am so happy I did. These are by far the comfiest pair of sneakers I have ever owned, which is saying something as I'm a bit of a sneaker head (over 30 pairs in my collection) Just placed an order for a second pair of Boost so I will be walking on squishy clouds all summer!
This is my first pair of boost and pleased with the fit and feel of the boost sole. However, mine are already showing signs of wear on the sole. I have worn them 5 times clocking 50ish miles and the boost foam is starting to show through the sole, I'm not confident that they'll last another 50 miles. For the price of this shoe I would expect them to last much longer. Very disappointed.
Over the past year I've tried the ultra boost (not enough support) and the sequence boost (too bulky) and I finally found the perfect running shoe for me. I've been running 4-8 miles in these every day for 2 weeks and they've been holding up great. As you can see from the picture the only part that has been wearing down is the plastic torsion system in the middle, but that's not a big deal. If you don't run on rocky trails like I do this wouldn't be a problem for you. Overall this shoe is great!
Bought for husband who has problem feet but likes to walk a lot, and has an active job. They've made him very happy! Bouncy, light and comfortable. finally he can walk like he used to and enjoy pain free hiking again.
