micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
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!!!
As a high school distance runner, I have run over 150+ miles in these. As a neutral striker, I was looking for something that would give me support in the mid foot and in parts of the heel. These did not give me proper support in that area, and my runs would be very uncomfortable. However, these are perfect for tempos and other speed workouts.
I got these for my upcoming Cross Country season. My previous trainers were the Adidas Energy Boosts 2. These supernovas are pretty similar to the energy boosts, but I think that I like them a little bit more. First of all i think that these are a bit more durable and have better traction. I have had them for about two weeks and have ran a 10 mile race in them, they are very comfortable and have not given me any problems so far. The only thing I don't like about this shoe is that it is a little heavy.
Really comfortable shoe. I would have given this shoe five stars except I am undetermined if the cushioning in the forefoot is less than previous or not. After some longer runs, I've found my front foot pads a little tender; it may be because I have been off running for a period because of injury and am now getting back to longer distances. Still the shoe forms around the foot very nicely and the heel cushioning and support is excellent.
Very comfortable shoes. I had worn out shoes before so I decided to buy these and I didn't really have to break them in. Just put on these shoes and run! On my first run(on a track) they felt great. It gave my legs great support. The quality of the shoe is my favourite thing. I can just hold this shoes in front of me and be in awe of it. I also like to wear Adidas socks with these shoes, it makes everything far more perfect being geared up with Adidas. #allin #firstneverfollows
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.
I love everything about this shoe. The cushioning is amazingly comfortable. My toes aren't constricted and my heel is held properly. The Continental tread should be durable. I tried a couple of other Boost models before finding this great shoe.
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.
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!
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.
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!
The Energy Boost are the best training shoe on the market. They are great for high impact work, like sprinting, but are also great for lower impact work, like long runs. They are built for performance and the boost foam is amazing at absorbing impact
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.
Probably the best pair of shoes i've ever owned. They have held up amazingly as regular shoes (like 5 months, and they still look about a week or so old). The tread has worn almost none. I just started running in them, so I haven't given them a real endurance test yet. Extremely breathable, incredible fit, and amazing style.
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.
Adidas Supernova Glide 8 This is the shoe I have been looking for. If you are a runner you fully understand what I’m talking about here. We all seek ”that” shoe that will contribute to the pleasures of running, and not just another pair of shoes that will enable you to run. Yes, this shoe enables you to run, but dang it is the most comfortable shoe I’ve had to date. I put in over 50 miles a week on the road…which is difficult on it’s own, since it is road running after all …not trail. But these shoes have really changed my outlook on the road. Quality: I have probably 150 miles on these so far and no major sign of wear and tear. I was worried about the Continental sole, since I had heard it wears fast, I have not experienced this. It’s funny that I talked trash on these shoes before trying them, saying the Boost was a scam. Trust me, it is no scam. We will see if it breaks down, supposedly it does not….it’s like magic. Score 5/5 Comfort: There is a reason why this shoe was voted Runner's World Editor's Choice twice. Fit is snug, not as snug as a Salomon Sense Pro. That said it is not tight in anyway, so wider feet peeps I would not worry too much, the mesh upper I think will adapt nicely. The toe box is no Altra, so if you are looking the spread the toes this is not the shoe. Good ventilation so far, but haven’t had them in temp’s over 90 yet…and not looking forward to that anyways… Weighing in at 10.7 ounces (size 9) I really wish they were a bit lighter, but for an everyday runner it’s within range of competitors. Also, I would rather have a great shoe that weights 10.7 than a bad shoe that weights 9. Score 5/5 Price: At $130 Retail - this is a great price for the Boost line. Anything above this is my tipping point though. 5/5 Looks: Adidas always keeps it so fresh and so clean. Score 5/5 Overall: 20/20
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.
These are the 4th Supernova's I have worn and the Supernova Glide 8s don't disappoint. The are extremely comfortable and the boost technology is very apparent and a plus. These are great when walking too, as they are my favorite for walking long distances (10 miles).
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.
