Reflectivity works great, I saw a lot of people complaining about it, but honestly they must not own the shoe because it looks stunning in car headlights or in flash photography. Best shoe for night running I've found yet. Fits like a glove and is fairly priced as well.
I bought these shoes for marathon training and I am now on my second pair. They are the perfect balance of comfort for longer runs, combined with speed. I also now need only one shoe for training and racing! Brilliant.
I finally worn out my second pair of supernova 7's and fancied an upgrade to the new supernova 9. Felt fine when I tried them on, but after a few miles running in them, I was feeling a discomfort under both my feet arches. Whilst there is huge amounts of cushioning, this was far too soft and resulted in my foot hitting the harder mid cushioning layer. felt like stepping on a stone every time I ran. I cannot run in these shoes, they are too painful. the old supernovas were great - i would recommend them to any neutral runner. the newest design is oh so terrible. £100 wasted.
I do recommend you this pair of shoes - Alphabounce. They fit me well, nice looking and very comfortable. I just only think that Ultra Boost ones will be hard to keep clean. However, these Alphabounce are much easier, trust me. They are worth more than the price 110$. If anyone used Converse at size 8 US (41,5 EUR) before, I would believe you order these alphabounce at size 9 (nearly 42,5 EUR) to ensure your pleasure when breakin' in, based on your foot's width. Hope u choose best ones if u order online.
Great for over-pronaters for long runs. The boost system does well in reducing shocks through body for each step taken in the run. With these trainers i can run a half marathon and do have any issue.s
This is a terrible update of my favorite trainer. It is basically a completely different shoe from the Glide 8. The new version feels clunky. They added about a half inch of stack height to the shoe for some reason. The tongue is ridiculously long and does not stay in place. It slides way over to the inside of the shoe. I went through 9 pairs of the Glide over the past three years and loved them. Now Adidas doesn't have a normal daily trainer in their lineup, so unfortunately I will have to look at other brands.
Previous models (pre-bounce) of Adizero Adios were my favorite running shoes for years (I still wear my old ones). I tried these, but they didn't feel as snug, comfortable and fast as the old ones. Something was off in where the arch sits too. Switched to Boston 6, which are great, if a little thicker in the sole. These, however, may suit others better, so I still reccommend.
These are just so very comfortable. My go-to running sneakers for several years was the Adizero Adios. I don't care for the new boost model of that shoe; something changed in the feel and support. Although these sit a little higher, they are my current fav; have 2 pair (and bought 2 more for family members). I'm not sure how the quality will play out. On my Adios, the mesh top eventually got holes, although it took a while. Will be curious to see how long the bounce sole has bounce.
These are the most comfortable non-durable running shoes I have ever purchased. I have put less than 100 miles of high speed walking on them and the tread is gone on the balls of my feet. And I love the Adidas and Taylor Made brands.
It's okay but to overrated got these a two day ago first time I wear them I dropped soap by mistake now I have a big white stain on the black toe area smh. 130 straight to the trash in less of a day. Very disappointed.
the toe box seems wider in the 6, so for me it's been the comfiest shoe to date. Lots of feedback from the road, while providing adequate cushioning and support. Lightweight for 5k's up to the marathon. Recently ran a 2:44 marathon in them, so pretty happy with that!
NO. Totally deceiving. The Xeno reflective areas are nowhere near what the pictures show on here. Extremely disappointed in them. I have the Xeno ZX Flux and those really reflect, these, nope. All that's good about them is that they're comfy and sleek black. They run a lil bit long/narrow, the material stretches to your foot.. think wetsuit material. But don't get these thinking they're going to be reflective or colorful, you'll be very let down.
This shirt is by far the highest quality and most comfortable workout shirt I've ever worn. I'm 5'5", 140 lbs, with a muscular build; the small fit perfect. The sleeves form to the arms, but aren't tight, and there's some room around the torso.
Like the other reviews mentioned, it's too long when you go true-to-size. However once you go down half a size, the upper feels too constricted, making your feet feel tight. Don't know what the solution is except go down half a size, be uncomfortable for a while, and wait until they break in.
I first bought the UltraBoost in the "Core Black/Iron Metallic/Clear Grey" color in a men's 11 (I normally wear a women's 12) and they fit great. So I bought the Xeno's in an 11 and found them to be a little snug. I took the insoles out and now they fit great. The Xeno material isn't as reflective / noticeable as the ZX Flux version was. I'm happy with them but I think they should be around $80 - $100
These shoes are great looking but the sizing issue almost makes them not worth it. These shoes run almost a full size big length wise. However, they run true to size in width, so if you go a size down to accommodate for the length issue your feet get squished. If you buy them in your normal size they are way too long. Just not worth is in my opinion.
Wasn't too jazzed about this shoe until I saw it in person and tried them on. Let me say that they Alphabounce EM is definitely worth the money. They fit true to size and are definitely comfortable. Of course, they aren't as comfortable as the Ultraboosts but they are definitely more of a conventional running shoe. From the wearers point of view the EM pattern gives similarity to the toe boxes of 1.0 and 2.0 Ultraboosts. And in this colorway, they remind me of moonrock Yeezy 350 V1s! I look forward to more colorways and will definitely cop more as they come. Thanks, Adidas!
Wow I really did not like this shoe. Going back a shoe generation, the Supernova Glide 8 is my all-time favorite running shoe. In my opinion, it has an ideal balance of cushion and weight and makes running an absolute pleasure over almost any surface. That’s why I was so excited to try these new shoes, the Adidas Supernova (ordered directly from Adidas). The promise of 20% more cushion with only a .1 ounce weight gain coupled with slightly better heel lockdown was extremely intriguing and I couldn’t wait to try them out. Unfortunately, instead of having an even better experience than the one I had with the Glide 8, I had the WORST experience I’ve ever had with running shoes, and I’ve worn quite a few! First, the mid-section of the shoe is so tight that I felt like the blood flow had cut off in my feet. Let me just say, I’m 5’8, weigh 150, and I most certainly do NOT have wide feet. If anything, they’re on the narrow side. As a size 11, the length of the shoe was fine, but the mid-section was absolutely constricting. Second, on the left shoe, the top left Adidas stripe on the shoe was connected to a border material that was literally pushing into my foot when I ran. It felt like someone was jamming their finger into my foot. My immediate reaction was to redo/loosen the laces on the shoe and to adjust the shoe generally, but to no avail. It was such an unpleasant experience that I had to stop a half mile into my run because the shoes were hurting my feet so much. Even more than I am disappointed, I’m baffled that a shoe company like Adidas could create something so great with the Glide 8 and could turn around and design something as poor as this. Adidas, did you not test these extensively before release? Could this be a quality/control issue in manufacturing? Suffice it to say I will be sending these back. If there’s a silver lining, it’s that I did not toss my Supernova Glide 8’s (phew!) and will be very happily returning to them tomorrow morning.
Pre-ordered these and I absolutely love them. I feel like they actually do fit pretty true to size. They are slightly long but not by much. Im size eleven and thats What I ordered and I have no issues With the fit. Durable, fits like a glove, all around Well made shoe.
The Xeno reflectivity SUCKS. I bought a pair of myself and my wife and had her walk in front of the car and you can't see any change. Super disappointed. The shoes themselves are awesome - but the Xeno - waste of money.
I've had more than 150 pairs of sneakers, as much as i wanna like the Alpha Bounce, it has the weirdest sizing i have ever seen. Too long and too wide for "true to size", go half a size lower and its too narrow but still a tad long... its just weird.
Went from wearing only nike shoes to trying this pair. I can say im really satisfied. Fit snug with true to size. Really comfortable good for a day out in the city or 4 mile run on the track. Definitely going to look more into adidas after this purchase.
So far have two pairs, looking to get a third pair, GREAT shoe! Perfect comfort and feel, only recommendation is they seem to run a little on the bigger size. I normally wear a size 13, but fit a size 12 in these perfectly. But that is just me, if you have a chance, go in-store to try on and figure out what size you should get, other than that, perfect shoe and style.
I'm in the navy and ordered these (size 10.5) online and got them just in time before I go out to sea. But to my dismay they are actually bigger than 10.5 and now I don't have time to return them and get a smaller version. Kind of annoying. I'll be sending these back and going to the mall now. Fix the sizes!
They look nice and feel pretty good. They'll probably feel even better after I break them in. Only issue I have is they seem just a tad too big. I've wore 10.5 my whole life and for some reason these 10.5s are a little bigger. My heel slides a little. Idk if running shoes are meant to be bigger? But to me a 10.5 should be a 10.5 regardless.
