micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Awesome shoe, have been wearing it for years! Great support for those with weak ankle or flexible forefoot. This time the 7.5 size was slightly too long, but overall this shoe rocks the runs every time! (10-21km runs)
First time I was on the trademill with this shoes, I could not believe how good it felt. I like shoes with lots of support and stability (I have flat feet) and this is it. I cannot believe how much this shoes made running more fun. Congratulation Adidas! You finally found material that is better than gel or air.
I love this shoe, just run my first half and got the shoes a day before the run,was alittle scare at first of the time i had with the shoe. I did not have a probles with the shoe...I will recomend this shoe 100% tney are worth the money..
I need a good support sneaker due to a knee injury. This was recommended by a running store but I'm now not sure that I got the right sneaker! I remember trying on one style and the heel was too loose. The other was just right. Well, guess what! I think I got the wrong shoe because my sock slipped down and my heel slipped up. The next time I wore a different, thicker, pair of socks and it was OK. However, the rest of the sneaker was comfortably snug. I did not purchase the in-store sneaker because I need neutral colors. They said to order direct because they could not get the color I wanted.(PLEASE make good sneakers in colors that can be used as a dress shoe!) For the cost, I'm rating this an average sneaker.
I love these trainers and I am now on my 5 pair of Adistars. The fit is perfect and makes your foot feel secure. The low heel profile reduces impact and injury and makes for a smooth run. I dont plan to ever change so dont tinker too much on this shoe, Adidas!!
I've had a few pairs of these shoes and they are the only running shoe I can wear. I have bad knees and very little natural cushioning on the balls of my feet. These shoes have great support and the most cushioning of any other shoe I've tried--and I've tried several. I thought I was going to need to give up running before I found these. My only complaint--the colors aren't the greatest. My current ones are an ugly khaki color and aqua. Grey and aqua would have been so much better! I'm usually not thrilled with the color selection, but I wear them anyway because they feel so good.
These are the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned for 5-10 miles runs, Have not run longer than that yet. I love this shoe. I have two pair right now and will buy two more soon in case they get discontinued I know I will be good for awhile. I love them. Better that any of the competitions shoes I have ran in.
Being my first time shopping online through the Adidas store I was unsure whether my sizing would be accurate (I simply went with the size of my 3 year old pair). To my delight the shoes fit like a glove! I ordered the shoes Thursday evening and had them in my hot little hands by Monday morning - ready to hit the gym that afternoon! Very happy with the whole experience!
This is my second pair of Boost shoes and I will never stray! Less hamstring pain and great for road running. The toe box is a bit wide for my narrow feet, but I get less toe issues, so that must be good. I have some foot issues with pinched nerves and the extra cushioning helps with that. Agree with others that this is a running shoe, not designed for a P90X plyo workout, does not handle side to side movement well.
Excellent running shoe fits great and makes you feel like you're running on a pocket of air. Does give you a boost from the cushioned sole making you feel like you can run harder and faster. I would rate these as the best running shoes I have owned for road running.
These are running shoes, but I use them every day as my goto shoe out of the office. I actually have two pairs, why not? The fit is perfect, I appreciate the ventilation in the toecap, and on colder days I just wear thicker socks. These shoes are simply amazing, they look great, they feel even better.
Overall 4/5 Stars. I know a lot of shoe manufacturer's don't usually cater to people with larger feet (Me being a 13.5-14) even though they sell out of the 11-13s super quickly and are always left with the smallest sizes on Clearance. I got the 13s since they were the largest size. My feet feel a bit cramped and I have to constantly pull up my socks in order to get my shoes on so my feel aren't cramped. Enough about my personal issues, these shoes are great for the most part, I do feel the extra bounce to my step and they are very good running shoes. Used for about a month now and I love them. I'll be looking for some thinner socks to hopefully make up for the crampyness.
This is my first pair of Adidas running shoes, and I really love it. To be honest, I had my doubts at first as I have always bought running shoes from their biggest competitor. When the Adidas pure boost 1 was launched, I bought it and love the comfortable "pillow-like" feeling of the sole. But I reckon it is more of a fashion sneaker than a running shoe and I could not compare it with my previous pair of running shoes. So based on my initial impression on the pure boost technology, I decided to go ahead and purchase the adistar boost esm. It became clear that I have made the right choice after my first 5km run with the adistar boost esm. But what is surprising is how I felt after my 2nd run the very next day. Usually, with my previous pair, I will be feeling the aches in my feet and ankles. With this Adistar, the soreness did not happen. Leaving everything constant (I run on treadmills only, distance, warm-ups and cool-downs, etc), I feel that this must be attributed to the pure boost technology. To date, I have ran 25kms in this AdistarBoostESM, and I have never felt better running. In fact, I dont recall this same feeling when I first bought my last pair of lunarglides. And because I can now run consecutively without feeling the sore and aches, I have even ramped up my training plans. Apart from the Pure Boost technology, I love how the shoe fit my foot with the techfit upper. It fits like a glove, but yet not constricting when you run. The shoe tongue is plushy, so you will not feel the laces. Some reviewers have complained about the blister forming at the toe area, but I do not have that blister problem. In fact, I find that the rubber piece at the tip of the shoe that caused them blisters helps your feet to stay in place when you run so that you will not "slip" due to the sock-like upper. It might be because they do not have a good fit (ie. they bought a size too small or big), or that they have a badly designed socks with the seams sewn at the toe area. On a side note, I strongly suggest you to invest in a pair of running socks as it does make a difference. Running socks are sewn differently, and the seams are actually further back before the nail-bed. They actually do help to prevent blisters and provide comfort when running. In conclusion, I really love the Adistar Boost ESM, and I will definitely recommend it if you are looking at a pair of Stability running shoes.
Really comfortable and attractive shoe. It was too tight on the top of my foot (and you can't adjust because it's all one piece). Otherwise they felt great. If that wasn't an issue I would give it a five star and order other colors. I haven't bern able to find a different brand that was as comfortable.
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 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.
This is my second pair of Adidas Boost Shoes. These shoes are so comfortable. When running they feel like air and are very bouncy. Makes running easier. Very comfortable with good support. True to size. It's worth the money.
For me, the adistar Boost ESM Shoes combined real comfort and support with style. I have no hesitation recommending them to anyone wanting an all purpose trainer, whether they are a fitness veteran or just starting out.
I really wanted to love these shoes, and did really like the feel of the ESM materials and boost midsole. However, there is a noticeable piece of welded rubber on the inside of the toe area (matching the same-sized piece of rubber on the outside) that would rub my big toe to the point of almost feeling like water torture after a few miles. And longer and I would not doubt have a blister. There also did not seem to be enough padding in the rear heal to keep the plastic heal clutch from rubbing my achilles, also cause for abrasion. Maybe it's just my janky feet, but I was hoping for more in the details for the price of these shoes.
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!
Just got a pair. Fit is pretty good. Went for a quick walk in them - nice cushioning. Did feel too high up in them. Love the one piece tongue. lots of cushioning on the tongue so i don't don't feel the laces on the top of my foot. feel like my old trail response shoes but a lot lighter. The boost is definitely noticeable in that it does feel "bouncier" and a lot bouncier than a pair of adizero prime knits I returned. :( They seem great for running but not much else. Noticed my toe slid out easily since there no real support or restraining of ,y outer toe if i push off sideway - like turning quickly. I follow up later after a few weeks of running in them.
Ok, so I'm in high school cross country, and these are the only shoes i will buy. The cushioning is excellent, the stability is amazing, and the new ESMs have great ventilation. And they look amazing. I would wish they would last a little longer, for the price. But they are still excellent. I cannot recommend them higher/
I love the Adistar Boosts ESM! The addition of the mesh upper makes the shoes more breathable and the superior Boost sole provides cushioning for every kind of step. The flexibility of the Adistar Boosts also makes them more versatile running-wise, but these shoes are the best for walking and easy runs. I gave these shoes 4 stars out of 5 only because these shoes are NOT TRUE TO SIZE. I wear a size 13. And comparing the Adistar Boost ESM to the Supernova Boosts lines, the Supernovas are truer and more breathable in my natural size. The ESM 13's felt like a true size 12. No toe room at all. I returned and exchanged the Adistar ESM for a size 14 and instantly fell in love. They feel as comfortable as the Supernova Boost Glide uppers with better cushioning! Love 'em!
hands down best adidas shoe on the market right now... great for stability, cushion, shock absorptions. use for any type of training. mostly running, but everyday use is definitely ok. turn heads when you walk around :P
I wanted a shoe for walking and standing long hours and the on-line advisor suggested the Energy Boost shoe. I chose the Adistar because it helps with pronating. I had to go from my normal size 10 to an 11, but it fits perfectly. I have tried both available colours and I don't like either. So I'm sending back and waiting for Adidas to produce them in a different color range. I tried the men's Adistar ESM Boost, too, because I like the color better. Unfortunately they are just not fitting me right. Disappointed!
