micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
The upper is ok, reasonably light and doesn't retain water. The sole is durable rubber that provides a lot of grip, I ran on slippery wooden boards and found grip. Downsides are : size, I had to go up half a size from traditional Adidas sizing (though this brings its sizing more in line with most other manufacturers). weight, as a forefoot striker the weight is mostly at the rear of the shoe in a load of cushioning I rarely use. The cushioning in the forefoot is misleading as this shoe has not been designed with midfoot or forefoot strikers in mind and just slows us down. I'll keep the shoe now as a winter plod along trainer and throw it after 100 miles - 5 done so far.. as I've worn it outside. Recommend this as a good shoe for stubborn heel strikers.
I purchased these and a pair of Glide. I found the response a bit bulky comparied to the glide. There was little repsponce to them, for a little bit more money, I would recommend Glide which are a lighter weight.
I have always liked the response line of running shoes due to their basic, no nonsense approach. Not a lot of needless bells and whistles just decent cushioning. I have run in the supernova line as well but always felt they were a bit heavy and stiff. The response boost runs like a light shoe with good flexibility. Great basic trainer.
Nice looking trainer arrived on time and was a good fit but my sporty son only wore it a few times and the thin fabric upper started to develop a hole. Rather disappointed that the material was not strong enough to withstand greater wear and tear.
Very bouncy and comfortable on the feet. I have problems with my left foot and numbness. However, my left foot felt pretty good in these shoes wile running an 8 km run. I usually start feel some pain after 4 km but I am able to run the whole 8 km without pain.
Personally, the boost material is the best cushioning system ever invented. These response boosts were perfect for me because I run but also do strength training. The placement of the boost material provides a studier base the the shoe rather than a pure or ultra boost. I now have a pair of ultra, pure, and response boost and I would recommend an ultra boost for a running or casual shoe. The response boost is a perfect training shoe.
I own the original Energy Boost, Energy Boost 2, Supernova Boost 6 and Supernova Boost 7. After chatting with online personnel, I decided to give the Response Boost 2 a try. It is somewhat ironic, that a shoe named "Response" totally lacks the cushioning and "response" that made the Boost shoes such a hit!! Rides very firm and has little "rebound" qualities of the aforementioned shoes. I will only use this shoe for short 2-4 mile recovery runs.
Got the Black and Yellow ones thinking that's how they'd look, but they turned out neon yellow/green and blue, not black. Kinda mad it looks nothing like the picture, but I love running in response boosts so yanno, there's that at least
I bought these for my 14 year old son, who has jumped from a childs size to adults. Bit nervous about buying shoes online but when you can return if not right l was happy to give it a go.These were for P.E at school. They fit really well and he is most happy with them. Thanks
I've owned every kind of running shoe out there and these are BY FAR, the most Comfortable/Lightest pair I've ever had. Usually when shoes are this light, they lack the durability I need. These have both qualities and I'd recommend them highly. Way to go Adidas! You've got a customer for life.
I purchased this shoe about 3 weeks ago and have loved it ever since. I'm a 6'6" beginner runner and have tried several shoes from other shoe companies. The Adidas Response Boost is the best one I've had on my feet. The Boost system provides great cushioning for impact while the structure/build of the shoe provides support for a heavier runner. It doesn't feel flimsy, but is also extremely comfortable. It's a great shoe and highly recommend it!!
