im a lover of the adidas boost technology, this is my 3rd pair & they haven't disappointed. I run most days & wear these trainers to do so, I can't wear them for fitness classes that I teach as not enough support for movement in different directions but there made for running so that's what they're best suited for. The only down side is possibly the "sock" style, I don't find that this suits & fits every foot properly. The look & design is fabulous, I ordered the black ones & they look amazing.
I am so happy with this latest generation! I have several pairs of Adidas Boosts but my favorite has always been the first generation until these came out (The Energy Boosts 2 never felt as cushiony or comfortable to me). I had to splurge on the pre-launch and I'm so glad I did! I couldn't imagine this shoe getting any better from the first generation but the Supers have blown them out of the water as far as cushion and comfort goes - for me anyway. Thank you Adidas! I'm sure I will be buying more once they are on the market again.
These shoes are absolutely fantastic and better than anything I have worn previously. I was slightly worried about the size and as has been previously stated they are slightly (and only very slightly) narrow. The thing is that it doesn't really matter because of the flexibility of the top part of the shoe. It's like wearing a really flexible sock and it moulds to the shape of your foot. I trialled them on a 7 mile run and the cherry on an already delicious cake is the sole. They are springy and bouncy and they provide strength on the hills and comfort on the flats. I cannot recommend them enough!
This is my 4th pair of boost sneakers. I have worn out 2 pairs of Energy Boosts( 1 and 2) and have one in my closet, still in the box. I bought the Ultras when they were offered at introduction a couple of weeks ago. I have worn them to work out in and run in at the gym. The extra "boost" is nice, but the overall shoe is somewhat larger than the Energy Boost 1 and 2. I like the original fit better. Glad I have an new pair of the "old" design in my closet! I hope Adidas brings back the Boost 2's in more colors and sizes.
I tried these out in a test run . I normally wear a size 8.5 in the adios boost. So I picked out and 8.5. They were EXTREMELY comfy when I first put them on. The beginning of the run was good but the shoes felt loose in the front. Halfway through the run my mid foot started to hurt. I think maybe it's just adjusting to the shoe though because it didn't hurt afterwards. When I got back to the store I tried on size 8 thinking they might fit nicer but they were sooooo narrow that it hurt just standing there. I love the shoe but don't think it fits quite right. If there was a size 8 1/4 it would be perfect! Maybe I'll try men's sizes to get some width.
I have been waiting for these running shoes and they are worth the wait. I love the Adistar shoe and the Boost energy heel is amazing. I am used to Adidas running shoes so I am accustomed to their fit. I do not find them to be shoes that run small or a tight. These are phenomenal shoes that help with my slight pronating issue and very high arch. The Adistar shoes are good, sturdy light weight shoes. I have to agree that the black and bright pink look a bit "young" for my age....but I could learn to live with the colour. Excellent shoe!
I love the feel of the upper, so soft and comfortable like a slipper. The cushioning is great as well. I definitely feel more than the Energy Boost. My only disappointment ( as mentioned by others) is that the sole shows wear early. I have about 30 miles on mine and already some of the nubs have worn down. For a running shoe in this price range I would not have expected this. The cushioning many last 100s of miles but I doubt the sole will.
I am a retired semi elite 10km runner (but I still run seriously without racing). I've been running in saucony guide and their predecessors for twenty years. They recently changed it so majorly I can't wear them anymore. I've been struggling ever since to find "my" shoe. I've tried all sorts of models of asics, saucony, Nike, brooks, etc., and none of them were right. I finally tried Adidas boost and was pleasantly surprised at the cushioning and especially their durability. I later bought a pair of Adistar boost and their superiority was apparent immediately. They offer far more cushioning, especially in the heel, than almost all the other brands I've tried (and more than the regular boost), a necessity for the mountainous terrain I run on. Yet the Adistar achieves this without adding weight or compromising durability, the two problems often associated with extra heel cushioning. The divided heel section is brilliant, offering superior cushioning during the initial heel strike. It also provides the smoothest heel to forefoot transition of any shoe I've run in for the last twenty years. This makes it a quick shoe. The easy transition also means it limits runners fatigue, as you're not labouring through each stride but transitioning quickly. You can run a lot further in them for the same amount of every expenditure. Another awesome feature is the continental rubber on the outsole. These shoes last a long time in both the outer and midsole. They outlast other running shoes by an extra 25-50% distance. This makes them well worth the price. The only thing I wish was different was more traction. Half of what I run are mountain trails, and these are really designed for road use only.
These are seriously the most AMAZING shoes to ever grace my feet. I was having some pretty bad knee pain when I was running, so I went to a specialty running store and got a gait analysis done (which I highly recommend and is usually free), and after trying on many other shoes, I was amazed when I put these on. They are light, breathe extremely well, provide awesome support while maintaining good flexibility, and they come in more neutral colors than some of the more ostentatious colors by other brands. I can't say enough about them! The price can be a little shocking, but the guy at the running store told me that because of their high quality build, they last for 500-600 miles per pair, instead of the usual 300-400 in other shoes. They are worth every penny. My husband and I now both own a pair, and they have been great to us for over 6 months now.
I have been a fan of Boost since the very first pairs were launched. I heard about them on Marathon Talk podcast and Haile was promoting them. I have since purchased in excess of 10 pairs and have converted 5 people to wearing them. The Ultra Boost are the best yet! They combine the best features of the first Boost and upped their game. The wider toe box and light weight upper plus the extra Boosting is th reason I'll be wearing these at Boston.
I think these shoes are amazingly comfortable, light weight, and flexible. Loved the colors and the material. If I didn't know better, I would have kept them... But over the years, I have realized that I really need better arch support for long days on my feet, or for high impact workouts. I have chosen to return these ONLY because of my dumb high arches. I decided to purchase a second pair of the Supernova Sequence Boost 7 shoes instead. They feels amazing on my arches, and I seriously feel like I jump higher in them! LOL
I just wore my new Ultra Boost shoes in a half marathon, and I didn't even have time to break them in properly. I always have trouble with the bottoms of my feet burning on long runs, and they still did, but the other issues I had been having (shoes rubbing little toes, tongue of shoe rubbing top of foot, Achilles tendonitis etc) all were alleviated by the Ultra Boost. My heel and ankle felt much better and didn't bother me during the race.
I love everything about this shoe related to performance. Excellent, really. I have already ordered a second pair. Ultra Boost compared to my Energy 2.0 ATRs has put a "spring" in my run that I didn't expect. The sock style fit threw me off at first and the fit isn't perfect. It is a little large, yet as others are reporting I agree with being narrow. My only real complaint is the wear on the bottom of the sole is heavy in such a short time. I had read others with the mens had this issue so I was paying attention more than I have with other shoes. Sure enough after my third use, they were worn down greatly. I could pull out my 2.0's and compare after 4 months of wear to the Ultra Boost only three times and the Ultra Boost were worn out more. I love the shoe and what it does for performance and it is hands down the best shoe I have ever owned, but it is going to be pretty expensive keeping these stocked in my closet if I have to keep replacing much more often than normal use. Adidas please fix the sole! You do it so well with the Energy 2.0 ATR! Combine the two and I will be a customer for life.
I've had the original Adidas boosts before and it was time for a new pair so I thorght I'd go for the Ultra Boosts, I'm not in no way disappointed, the fit is amazing and with not having a tongue they literally fit like a pair of socks!! I have to wear orthotics in my running shoes and even with them in the shoes they still fit great!. Overall I'm very happy with them!!
I have been eagerly waiting for them to arrive to Cyprus. I bought them a week ago and have performed 3 runs so far about 10km each. I have an issue with my feet , they tend to give me sharp burning pains when the shoes are not right. I experienced this pain in my first run but I think it was only because I was not used to them. The boost is unbelievable, I have improved my time and I cant wait for the Limassol marathon end of March!! Love them!!!!
