Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the best shoes I've had First of all, a little bit of background. I am a 10K recreational runner, and from time to time I would do up to a 10Mi run. Most of the time I run out on a trail with very few treadmill runs. Also I have some runner knee problems on the left leg and I use orthotics. This condition requires me to use running shoes who offer good support and reduce the impact on my legs while running. Some of the shoes I've tried feel really hard, but these ones feel so comfortable and the materials are top of the line. I took them for several runs and they offer great support and cushioning. I've had no pain or problems at all with them so far! Aside from the comfort, the shoes look and feel great! The materials are very resistant, I've had them for a couple of weeks and they look great (I do clean the dirt after each run). Also, I like to do max interval training, and I've taken these shoes to the gym and the response is just as good! I don't get any chaffing and my feet feel great after taking them off. If you like to do different kinds of drills and are a passionate runner who wouldn't mind some extra comfort while doing so, then you should get this pair of shoes! As a note, you should order half size up for great fit. February 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the price. Review of the Adidas Energy Boost. I did not know what to expect when I received these shoes. They were not out yet, so when I opened the box my first reaction was one of surprise when I saw how good these look. I proceeded to try them on, and noticed something unusual. There are only 4 pairs of eyelets for the shoelaces. That seemed a little strange to me, especially for a performance shoe, in which you expect to have a customized fit. As soon as I finished tying the shoelaces I understood why there are only 4. The upper part of the shoe is made of a material that compresses your feet, in a good way. I guess a way to describe how they feel is kind of like a performance running sock, with a major difference. These shoes, despite hugging your feet, are extremely comfortable. I have read online that the most remarkable feature about these shoes is the breakthrough technology of the sole material, and I will get to that in a minute, but to me the upper materials are just as extraordinary. I am very particular with how my shoes fit. In running shoes, I like the fit to be snug but I have to be able to wiggle my toes. What’s amazing about the material they have developed is that it hugs your feet but at the same time you have considerable freedom of movement. I also thought that the material might give in and be less supportive after some use, but that has not happened yet. They are as supportive as the day I first tried them on. And then there is the midsole. Wow. It looks like Styrofoam, but it is obvious that this material is very different from what is used in all the shoes I have worn before. Two characteristics are worth mentioning. First, the cushioning it provides. Whether I was walking or running, it felt like I was on clouds. This made for a very comfortable, forgiving ride. And then there is the recoiling action of the material. When you impact the ground, the shoes rebound as if you were jumping on a trampoline. The combined effect is a very positive one. So those are the positives. The shoe is not perfect, of course. I do not have wide feet, and still the tongue of the shoe let my socks show because it is not wide enough. The sides of the tongue have a zigzagging shape. Because of this, parts of my socks showed through. It is not a lot, but still. One way for this not to be an issue is to wear socks of the same color as the shoes. In my case, the shoes are black, so with black socks this is not a problem. Another thing I would change is the color of the midsole. I have never been a fan of white midsoles, because while they might look good when they are new, I find it works against them after you wear them a few times. I understand why these shoes have a white midsole, though. I am pretty sure it is so that we can see the new material. I just hope they make these with darker-colored soles in the future. So the question to me is, Are these worth the $150 Adidas is asking for? To me, the answer is yes. These are, by far, the best running shoes I have tried. Whether you spend this much on a pair of athletic shoes depends on whether you want to have the very best there is. If you are serious about your running or about how comfortable your sneakers need to be, then yes, these are totally worth it. You are basically paying a $20-30 premium to have the very best. Full disclosure: I was given these shoes by Adidas to try them and write a review. They specifically asked me to be sincere and not to artificially embellish the review. I do not work for Adidas, and actually was quite surprised that they chose me to review these. February 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by These Shoes Are Unfair I feel like I'm cheating the system and being allowed to wear a product that gives me an unfair advantage. The first time I put them on I thought I was jumping on tiny trampolines that followed my feet around. The cushioning is unlike any other shoe I've ever worn and that's including shoes that I've put cushioned insoles in. I just hope they stay this bouncy for as long as they claim to. The price, initially seems like way too much for what you think is just another running shoe, but I'll tell you it is more than justified. Worth every penny. A million thumbs up. An outstanding product. Thanks, Adidas. Well done! March 6, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Energy Boost Shoes review The heel of the shoe is cushioned and the shoe becomes more responsive through the mid-sole and stiff in the toe region. You will notice this could potentially be a sock less shoe. The tongue is attached to the sides and is seamless, very nice. Good arch support. I think this would be good for running 10 miles or less. You could run more, but this is my opinion. Adidas got it right with the top cloth and how it wraps around the foot. The toe box does raise some concern as it sorta/barely touched my toes. Again, good for 5/10k stuff but marathons... maybe. Very comfortable. If you are a heel striker and like a low drop shoe, you will love this. March 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded Expectations I have been searching quite a while trying to find a running shoe that was both light and comfortable. Enter the Adidas Energy Boost. This shoe is the perfect mix of weight and comfort. I couldn't believe how much cushion they provided when I first tried them on. I felt like I was bouncing up and down in these shoes. Running in them is fantastic. My legs feel notably less fatigued than usual. In addition they fit like a glove (gave me zero blisters) and took no time at all to break in. I must admit that I never tried running in Adidas before this. I have used Nike, Asics, and Brooks in the past but from now on these Adidas are my go to running shoes. March 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like running on a cloud I had the privilege of trying these shoes before they were released, so after a few weeks of use I can recommend them highly. They're the lightest running shoes I've ever owned and my feet can tell. The best part is that the decreased weight does not come at the expense of comfort and support; the foam soles perform just as well as thicker/heavier soles. Not to mention, the Boost's futuristic new look matches its technological advances. A note on sizing: my 'true' size is 11, but I buy 11.5 to adjust for swelling when I run. I received my trial Boost pair in 11.5, and in normal-thickness socks it felt a bit tight. With thinner socks, however, it fit just right. March 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shoes I've Ever Run In! The title is my review. I'm not going to get all techical here, all I have to say is over the past 21 years I've run in a lot of different running shoes (I have 5 pairs going rght now!# and the Boost is by far the best ever. Out of the box I took them out for 8.5 hilly miles at a good clip and I was in heaven. And for all of the rest of the running shoe companies that are knocking out 4mm heel drop shoes left and right #you know who you are) you can stick em! We're talking 10mm! Aside from the cushioning, no seams and perfect fit that alone makes this a great shoe! I'm clearly not a fan of flat running shoes. Buy the Boost! March 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big man runner This shoe was a game changer for me. I have large feet (size 15) so finding a comfortable lightweight running shoe is very difficult. I fell in love with the fabric upper sock which I found super comfortable and breathable. The toe-box area is very nice. I usually find shoes that are more narrow and as my mileage increases, my toes become numb, but these were much roomier and allowed me to comfortably run more miles. I was a little nervous to switch to these shoes having ran in the Supernova Glide, but they have now been replaced by the Energy Boost. February 27, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Too much drop I love the new sole material and the upper. The shoes were very comfortable. There is quite a bit of drop from heel to toe. I run about 25-30 miles a week and will do a 5k in a zero or near zero drop shoe. I do most of my running in a structured cushioning shoe, but one with less drop from heel to toe. Running 6-8 mile runs in the energy boost I have had some soreness in my knees that I don't have with shoes with less drop I would love a pair with less drop then could see 5 stars. If your current shoe has a fair amount of drop I would gives these a try. If you prefer a zero or low drop shoe, this one is not for you. April 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Energy Boost Shoes After having the boost for a while now, and being a loyal consumer since 1993 starting with the Response Trails and working myself into the Supernovas and now the Boost. I Think I can Honestly say that These are the Best shoes I've had that I did not have to Break In as much. All positive things about this shoes. Only One negative: I wish I had waited for the second version. The upper mesh because of the closeness of the toes to toe ratio, I have a hole where my big toe is on my right shoe. The rest of the shoe is in excellent condition but a shoe for this price should not be falling apart. Too expensive for the shoe to be taring. July 12, 2013
