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.
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.
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!!
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.
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
These have got to be the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever owned. There is almost no cushion it feels like walking on boards, there's a tongue seem that digs into your upper foot that is just painful after a short time. Got my pair and it was very clear that one shoe was stiffer than the other so it leaves you feeling off balance. Sure they look great but these are the worst shoes I have ever owned , its painful to walk in these let alone run. So disappointed in my purchase.
I am majorly impressed with these shoes. They are some of the lesser expensive shoes that addidas has to offer and they are much higher quality than I expected. They are insanely grippy, insanely light, and the breathe REALLY well. Every time a gust of wind comes my way, I can feel it between my toes. When I'm walking/ running, it feels no heavier than wearing socks! I'm a real customer by the way, in case you think I'm just some addidas rep trying to deceive all of you lol.
love the feel of boost on the shoe... the torsion system gets torn up pretty quickly and isn't the most stylish shoe... but works great for cross country and has a lot of mileage with minimum signs of being worn!
I ran my first Hood to Coast with these bad boys and I can confidently say that they were a huge reason I managed to complete the race in good time and less pain than expected. Keep up the good product creation!
I love the feel of the shoes, I would pay over and over for the shoes. Like I said I would if they would last long enough to break them in and be open to the idea of purchasing another pair and having a second pair. Unfortunately by the time you break them in its time for a new pair. I won't talk trash about the shoes, I know they are the best pair of shoes I have ever worn. Just make them them last longer than 2 months.
I have two pairs of the Ultra Boost and both have torn in the exact same spot. I have worn each pair a maximum of 10 times to work (nothing strenuous) and neither held up to simple walking. Very disappointed.
The shoe is great and super comfortable. However it did not last more than 3 months. The white sole part of the shoe is a plastic foam material and the smallest scuff causes damage. Also the actual sole of the shoe does not adhere to the plastic foam and began peeling off after 2 months.
I have a normal foot. I wear all kinds of shoes. The Ultra Boost is unnecessarily tight over the top of foot and in the toe box. I was excited but my heart sank. No dice for the Ultra Boost, and the Ultra Boost Uncaged looks terrible, so no reason to even try it on.
I got craaaazy complements about this shoes. They just hurt my feet (by the toes). Which is disappointing. I have the Springblade Ignites and the Springblade Solyces (in size 11) and they fit like a glove on my feet. I just got the return label and I'm going to try size 11.5; then I'll put another review up here.
These shoes are honestly amazing. The fit, comfort, and ride are all perfect and these shoes are amazingly comfortable. One gripe that I do have though, is that they're slightly flimsy. In fact, my cage tore within a week of wearing these shoes. So, watch out for the durability because these should last much longer, considering the price tag
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!!!
The fit, look, and comfort of this shoe is spot on. However, I've never worn a shoe that repeatedly makes my feet so hot I either have to stop running or switch them out half way through the day due to discomfort. A problem I've never had with other running shoes. I thought these would breathe really well with the mesh upper, but it doesn't seem to be the case. For the price, I can't say I would recommend these.
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.
