Rated 5 out of 5Â by northeast runner The best lightweight trainer on the market today
I work at a running shoe store, and have experience with a wide variety of brands. Comparing the adizero Boston 3 against similar shoes like the Nike Zoom Elite, the Saucony Kinvara, the Brooks Pure Flow, the adizero Boston 3 is better all around. Cushioning feels relatively firm, but in a lightweight trainer, that is what you want. Running fast in these shoes is easy and feels effortless. At the same time, there is just enough cushioning in these shoes for lighter, more efficient runners to use as a full time daily training shoe. I personally love alternating it with the Supernova Glide as I like to have a bit more cushioning for my daily runs.

These shoes are very light, durable, and will not let you down. I needed shoes for track and it was between these and the f50 running shoes. They are made for running on asphalt and running on the track was very similar. With every step, it feels like you are being propelled forward (even when walking). I ran the 800, mile, and 2 mile in these and I set records in each of those with the Boston 3 shoes. I have also used them in general training. They have great traction, due to the fact that they have Continental Tire Rubber on the bottom of them.
I've stuck with adidas for most athletic stuff, and I have not one time, been disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jimm I didn't know shoes could be this good
It's somewhat amazing I ever spent this much money on a pair of shoes...I tend to be a bit on the thrifty side, but at 54 years old I need all the help I can get to stay competitive. I wish I had bought these years ago. The little aches and pains I get from my running disappeared in less than two weeks. I was afraid that a lightweight shoe might not cushion well enough, but just the opposite is true. Best running shoe I have ever worn! As light as they are, I believe I will be setting some new PR's.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MI xc runner Great shoe good style
The shoes seam to be a great improvement from the boston 2. They have the same great comfort with added grip for better traction that helps alot in the winter when roads are covered in ice and snow. The colors are brighter then depicted online really stands out and people will notice them. have gotten alot of compliments. An overall good shoe for anybody who is going to wear them often.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Marius Boston makes you feel like a Olimpian
These shoes are seriously cool, and they mean the business!
I am a pronator (medium) but decided to get some light weight runners to race in. My choice was the Boston 3's and I have never looked back.
These shoes are light, breathable, enduring, comfortable, responsive and did I mention light?!!
The transition from my stability trainers (Sequence5) to this neutral light weights are easy and I haven't even felt pain in my joints.
In rain they are masterful as the water just flow in and out and in the heat it is like running with fans on your feet.
My opinion... The best shoe out there, by far! (and they look awesome)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ThreedecadesatBoston Continued refinement
The Boston 3 continues the progression of refinement to the adiZero Boston model. The 3 seems more like the special Ekiden model from last year, with a changed outsole.
A solid shoe for those 2-mile repeats getting ready for Marathon Monday.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Running California Boston Shoe Review
I have purchased many shoes in my running past and the fastest shoe for running marathons has proven to be the Adizero Boston 3. I ran a hilly course in Ogden, Utah and almost broke 3 hours. I qualified for Boston with over 12 minutes better than the improved 2013 qualifying times. I plan on getting the green ones this time and also plan to break the 3 hour time in the Boston Marathon 2013. I do switch shoes for longer slower training runs that have more cushion to ensure I don't beat my body up too much.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dimmy These Shoes Need To Come With a Brake
With a month and a half to go before my next marathon and with the soles of my current trainers almost completely worn down, I decided it was time for new shoes. With the goal of qualifying for Boston, I figured that buying these shoes would give me the inspiration needed to train hard and run fast.
As soon as they arrived in the mail it was love at first sight. The pictures on the website do not do them justice and do not truly reflect their beauty. After I tried them on and set off on my first run in them, I was very excited to discover that these shoes have a lot more going for them than just their looks.
The Boston 3s fit my feet perfectly and provide just the right amount of supported I need and no more. They are so light and low to the ground that they feel like a natural part of your body and you are quick to forget that you are even wearing them. On my first long run in the shoes I had to make a conscious effort to slow myself down, as they propelled me to go faster and faster. Even after 19 miles my feet felt comfortable in the shoes.
I spent two weeks trying to find these shoes in local stores. After my efforts proved futile, I resorted to buying them online at shopadidas.com and I can honestly say that it was well worth the wait. I don't see myself in running in any other shoe any time soon.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by asub excellent runners AND trainers
Boston 3 is my 1st experience with Adidas, and i am quite impressed. Running is my warm-up and high-intensity exercise. I wear Boston 3 for both my runs and resistance training. And the Boston 3 performs incredibly balanced between the two exercises. On the performance side, Boston 3 are very light and even with less structured cushioning they provide very stable support and allows me to run at higher speed comfortably. I was initially unsure with the styling, however they actually look great on too.
