I run two marathons per year, one in the spring and one in the fall each year. My shoe is the adios. That shoe was moved to boost technology. I purchased my first pair in early 2014, orange and silver, started experiencing slight knee discomfort after my first run, but I thought it was a running technique issue. I raced one marathon in those shoes. Purchased a second, same issue although not as bad. My current pair, purchased in Feb 2015, have caused even more knee discomfort. I wish there was an adios option without boost technology. Otherwise, I'm afraid I am going to move to another shoe maker. I would like to avoid because all my running apparel (running shorts, short and long-sleeve running shirts, socks, pants, jackets, gloves, beanies) are also adidas.
I ran 15 mile long run with this shoes as soon as it was delivered. Despite the lack of time to get used to, or feeling comfortable about it, the shoes fit perfectly. I really liked it particularly its light and nimble structure. I strongly recommend this product.
I already owned a pair of Adios Boost flats but needed a similar shoe that I could use regularly during my speed workouts. I just ordered the exact same size as my Adios and they fit like a glove. With about 20km on them so far I can say that they are very pleasant to use on the road and yes, they are very fast. If you already own another pair in the boost family, you will not be disappointed with the Bostons. They are fast, yet you can still feel supported.
I'm a long term fan of the Boston line, perfect fit for my feet, and used them for road and trail. Initially I was pleased with the upgrade to the Boost midsole - shoes felt fast and lighter than the previous version and still a great fit. I've used them on runs of 5 miles to 100. The downside for me compared to the previous version is the much reduced durability of the sole unit. I have 2 pairs, one of which has 300 miles on it but feels more like my Boston 3s or 4s at 500 miles. Except for the first 100 miles they don't seem to have the firm heel and that snap off the road that i like so much on the pre-Boost Boston and Adios2. Ideally i'd like the Boost cushioning just in the fore/mid foot.
The last 2 years i have been regularily training and running in half marathons. I have found these shoes to be excellent from the get go. For a runner weighting 100kg I find these shoes make me feel light and energenic
These shoes look great and work well for the gym. Not every shoe is good for both inside the gym and outside on the track. I have to watch for shoes that will not turn an ankle and these shoes fit the bill! Adidas shoes last well and fit very wide feet. I don't mind spending more for Adidas shoes because I know they will fit, do the job and last!
Simply a perfect fit and an anatomically correct sole. Finally, a shoe company who doesn't think it can replace millions of years of evolution of the human suspension system with a few millimetres of man made foam !
Trust me when I say this, I have a lot of adidas tennis shoes. I am a big fan of the barricade and have recently been sporting the barricade 9 which I think is a great shoe. Recently I got the chance to test out the new Ubersonic, I have tried a couple of Adizero shoes in the past but often found them feeling either cheap or uncomfortable. Firstly, I was keen to try this particular model because I think it looks great. In all black with a red sole these shoes look like they mean business, a stealth bomber disguised as a tennis shoe. The profile of the shoe also boosts it's aesthetics, the guys at adidas told me this has been build on a running last thus giving the unbersonic a sleek and speedy look. The subtle 3 stripe branding on the side and adidas logo on the heel all add to the shoes look. It's not showy, it's 'I am going to sneak on on court, cause you problems, and then disappear before you even know who or what happened' and I love that! So, how does the Ubersonic perform? I haven't been harping on about the looks just because I am image concious, although we do all like to look good on court. However I think the performance of this shoe is actually based around the sleek and speedy look of it. The shoe feels planted, you feel low to the ground and ready to pounce, or dance if that's more your thing. My best analogy is that this this is an F1 car, and your the driver sat low and close to the floor. It defiantly does feel a little like a running shoe for tennis, and maybe that's what adidas had in mind. This shoe is supposed to be about speed and I certainly feel quicker around the court in this vs a barricade. Don't worry when I say running shoe, this still has good lateral support which is set toward the mid and rear of the shoe in the form of a reforced polymer band in which the laces loop through and lock you down. Adidas has informed me they have moved toward mid/rear foot support to help give more flexibly/agility in the forefoot, and this certainly delivers. Grip wise, at first they felt all over the show, I think with any new pair you need to take a thin layer of rubber off before they becoming sticky. After a few matches I feel I have a perfect balance between grip and the ability to slide a little on a hard court. A number of people often pick a tennis shoe based on durability, for me it's not really on my list of requirements, I go for comfort first, how it's feels, how it looks and then will it last. I am not best placed to comment on the durability having only worn the shoe for a couple of weeks. So far so good, I have been playing hard and pushing the shoe, there is a thick layer of rubber around the toe box for abrasion protection and mine still look close to new despite me sliding around the court. I am guessing the outsole will last as adidas have used the industry standard in durability, their adiwear6 rubber. Inside the shoe there is an internal sock and sharks tooth lining (that's what I call it) basically it grips the sock to stop your foot sliding around. I think adidas have really upped their game in the comfort category with this shoe and the most recent barricade, so we'll done adidas! I have given this shoe 5 stars, I think it's possibly one of the best shoes on the market aimed at a serious player with a fast game and I can't wait to put them on my feet again. Finally, word of advice, I am usually a UK 10, however the 10.5 fits me perfect. Thanks.
I have fairly narrow feet and purchased these at size 10 based on my experience with the Boston 4s 9.5 being just too small on my left foot. In other brands, size 9.5 fits best. Unfortunately, my feet felt like they were losing circulation as soon as I put these on, as they are very narrow. I was wearing thin socks. The construction, lightness, airyness, and boost mid soles were all things I was looking for, so I was sad to have to return them. I'm now interested in the adios boost, and will try them on to see if they fit a little wider. I'm also getting more used to lower heel drops, and would have happily used the Boston 5s for my recovery runs and longer runs, had they not been too narrow.
The Adios are for mid-foot strikers. That's the healthy and natural way to run. Heel-strikers need a lot of cushioning, cause they're running the wrong way - jump on your heels, bare foot, and you'll understand what I say. So, the Adios boost might be a bit softer in the heel, but is still very firm and responsive in the mid and forefoot, so, still an amazing shoe. Adidas is number one - though not on the availability of the products, but they might have been surprised by their own succes....
I have started to use these trainers as I am planning a run from Reading to Maidenhead I needed something relatively light and comfortable. I have been running on these now for almost two weeks and find them easy going I would certainly recommend.
well, I really, really, I like 'em. What else is there to say.the top is so light you feel like you are running bare foot. the bottom is elastic and very supportive. I got them as a replacement for the same I already have, although the one's I have are still fine after 6 months of haevy use. The thing with adidas is that they change the shapes and widths of their products so often, so much so that by the time you need replacements you realise that your type is discontinued. I will definitelly get a second resrve pair if they ever go on sale. Super shoes!
I own both the supernova glide 6, and the adios boost 1. So was stoked to finally complete the neutral set with the boston 5. I chose to go with a half-size up from my size for the adios and glide, and I have to say I'm happy I did. This shoe does run slightly small. It is also quite narrow. I have a reasonably narrow foot however, and the ride on this shoe is incredible (i wanted something that sat pretty much right in between the glide and adios in terms of cushioning and responsiveness). I've been using it for everything from a 4km time trial to a 90 min trail run (though the grip isn't that suitable for anything other than the driest of trails), and I am loving the boston 5! BUT! What have you done with this toe-box Adidas? It's swede, and as such makes little folds inwards instead of sitting nice and uniformly, which can press a little uncomfortably into your big toes. I don't notice it while running, and hopefully the material will soften as I continue to break the shoes in, but please Adidas, I love this shoe. Take the end of the toe-box from the glide, stick it on future models, and you could be on to a winner.
I had to buy a half size larger like the Glide Boost I'm wearing now. The Glide Boost is more cushioned but the Boston Boost is much lighter. I'm training for a full marathon so the light weight would be an asset. The Boston fit like the Glide, more comfortable and cushioned than another major brand I've switched from. Also Adidas seems to have narrower toe box which is ok for me since I have narrow feet.
I've raced in all generations of the boston from 5k to Marathon and take the Boston 5 to the world masters this year with confidence. its light and fast with just enough protection when form goes out the window in the last 10k of a Marathon.
I don't normally write reviews but I felt compelled too. I will say that shoes are a very individual thing, especially for distance running and I've tried a few but these have come out on top. I'll be running my 30+ (lost actual count) marathon in 2 weeks time in a pair of these and I'll bounce around in sub 3 or my money back (I won't actually get money back if I don't or want it any way). And remember these work for me, for what I do. That doesn't mean they'll work the same for you :)
I am using adidas shoes from past 10 years and this is one of best shoes I have ever used. its very comfortable and doesnt pain your feet. More I wear the more I am liking this product. the thing I didnt like too much is its color, it extremely blue in colour than I thought.
Absolutely the best running shoes I have ever owned. Light, fast and responsive with just enough cushioning for longer runs. Only drawbacks are slightly too small sizing (as normal with adidas) and laces are a bit too snazzy for my liking. Usually adidas include another less conspicuous pair but not in this instance sadly. Great running shoes tho, highly recommended.
I am a huge Adidas fan. Love the Boost and Adios line. Been training and racing with them for about 5 years now. I ran the San Diego Marathon on 31May15. My right foot began to hurt about mile 10 or so. (I am a mid-foot striker). I am not sure if it was anything I did but the pain left after about 2-3 miles. About 17 or 18 the pain was much worse but this time in my left foot. The pain forced me to walk and jog and I was done. I completed the race way slower then I anticipated. I want to say the shoe was great up to a Half-Marathon distance. I don't think there is enough cushion and support for a marathon. I will stick to the Boston Boost. Anyone else have similar problems? I am 49 yoa. I do 1-2 marathons a year. I train all the time and have a 3:07:11 PR for the 26.2 haul.
I've used the original adios and every version since. Fantastic shoes, I just wish the toe box was a little wider on the latest incarnation, as the mesh can be quite abrasive on the pinky toe. Would love it if there were more customisation options for sizing again.
I have been running in Adidas adizero shoes for several years now, and have been very satisfied with the fit and feel. I wanted to touch on the color of the Adizero Boost 2.0 listed as "Mid grey/flash red/flash green", as this was a major problem for me. On the website, the shoe is shown as gray with a red stripe and a green bottom. To me, that is great, however, when the shoes arrived, they were both gray, but one had a red stripe and green bottom like that pictured, but the other had a green stripe with a red bottom. I thought this was a mistake at first, called Adidas, and returned the shoe after they also thought this was a mistake (two shoes that don't really match). I re-ordered the same shoe, and to little surprise, it was still mismatched. I am attaching pictures to show what I mean. After carefully looking at the website, it is very clear that only the left shoe is shown with the green bottom. I am very disappointed in Adidas for not making this clear on their site or to their customer service reps and will be returning these again, as I really dislike the mis-matched look.
Having owned several pair of energy boosts I wanted so etching a little quicker. This shoe certainly helped me !!! They are so comfy , have great grip and dry quickly, it's no wonder why this shoe is so popular in the racing world. As someone who has really got into racing this trainer has really helped me to improve my game!
Great training shoe, very light for a training shoe and the sole looks very durable, great for races > 1/2 marathon, for shorter races I ran in the adios 1, Also great shoe. Love the boost in the running flats not so much on the others, too much of it tends to feel to musshy.
So far the adizero Boston 5 suits my running style without any adverse symptoms with feet and legs. It offers a little more support and cushioning than the adios while still maintaining a light weight for racing. The base is more durable than the adios and should cope well with track and road surfaces. I have run in many models from the Glide 6 to Boost 2.0 and if you are seeking to try a more minimalist model then I would recommend giving the Boston 5 a try. I'm estimating they will last well and should get over 700km with my style of running although I will save them for the next marathon and purchase another pair to train in.
This is a great shoe for both speedwork and tempo runs and would suffice for a distance racing flat as well. It does fit a bit snug and 1/2 size short in my opinion but the performance is spot on. It has a low to the ground, racing flat feel but thanks to the boost midsole decent cushioning.
