The purpose of this appraisal is to evaluate the Adidas Ultra Boost running shoe based on three criteria. These criteria include comfort, durability, and performance. With the latest technology integrated into their product, Adidas claims that the Ultra Boost is currently the best running shoe on the market. Therefore, the targeted market for this product is frequent runners (~30 miles per week). Comfort When looking for a running shoe, comfort is my main priority. I define comfort as the ability to go on a 10 mile run without feeling any discomfort. The Adidas Ultra Boost integrates one of its newest technologies, Boost, into the sole of the shoe. The Boost sole literally feels like you’re walking on a cloud. It is extremely responsive and you feel the material squish with every step. This helps to minimize the negative impact that running has on your joints. Unfortunately, I did notice that the shoe fits very narrow. If you are someone with wider feet, you might want to find a wider shoe. After wearing the Adidas Ultra Boost for multiple runs and feeling no discomfort in my feet, I can confidently say that the comfort of the Ultra Boost is top-of-the-line and ideal for frequent runners. Durability Since the Adidas Ultra Boost is relatively expensive ($180), most users are going to want to get their money’s worth. I define durability as a shoe that can remain in good condition for 6 months while running 30 miles per week. In my experience, I have went on 10 mile runs every other day for four months, and the shoes have shown minimal signs of wear. The tread on the bottom of the shoe is still fresh, resulting in a great grip between the shoe and the terrain. Based on what I have already experienced, I expect this great condition to continue for the next several months. Therefore, the Adidas Ultra Boost is great in terms of durability for frequent running. Performance I rate the performance of a running shoe based on its support and grip. The upper part of the Adidas Ultra Boost is constructed out of Primeknit, a formfitting material that adapts to the natural curvature of the foot. Primeknit provides a snug, sock-like fit, ensuring that your foot is well supported. The Continental rubber outsole is made from the same material as automobile tires—ensuring the best grip in wet and dry conditions. The performance of the Adidas Ultra Boost is unmatched by other shoes. After a thorough evaluation of the Adidas Ultra Boost, I can see why Adidas claims to have created the best running shoe. The Ultra Boost has excelled in comfort, durability, and performance, making it an ideal shoe for frequent runners. I highly suggest purchasing this shoe, and I hope you have the same positive experience that I’ve had.
I love love love these shoes. They are smaller than the picture makes them look, but in the best way possible. they are extremely comfortable, much like walking on memory foam. the arch support is outstanding. Two things that did not bother me but might be a problem for others: 1.) the mesh is very thin. if you are looking for a shoe to wear in the winter, this is probably not for you 2. the back does come up very high. i can definitely see how this might be problematic/a cause for blisters for some people. i have a pretty arched tendon back there so it's not a problem at all for me. Another thing to note, the bottom mesh is not connected to the sole in the middle. this is not a problem at all it's just not something i noticed before purchasing. (Also the aglets are pink and blue) Overall, this is probably my favorite sneaker i've ever purchased. i looove these shoes!
The Ultra Boosts are great shoes with two critical flaws in my experience (if you are using them as running shoes): 1) Primeknit durability, and 2) sockliner quality. 1) Primeknit durability: Within a few months of use, the Primeknit upper (which is super comfortable, btw) started to fray on the outside of the left foot. A month later, there was a visible hole that got bigger with each run. The shoes will soon be retired to "around the house" wear as my pinky toe is starting to poke out of the shoe. Suboptimal performance for a shoe at this price point. 2) Sockliner quality: After a few runs, I noticed that the balls of my feet would hurt after a mile or so. I took out the sockliner, compared it to the sockliner in my Energy Boost 2s, and noticed that the Energy Boost had a much thicker sockliner. I put those in my Ultra Boosts and the problem went away - I'd recommend doing something similar if you get these, but adidas should consider a redesign to address the issue. Overall impression: great shoe for everyday wear, good running shoe with some critical flaws, and recommend with some hesitation.
15 yr old got blisters on back of ankles, she wanted to see if she could get used to but the shoe ripped within 2 weeks just wearing around school so we sent it back. Sad because she loved them and would've been comfortable besides blisters, they just come up to high in the back.
Good for running on cool mornings or days. I have some older Adidas which is 3 inches shorter in length, and sends ideal in length. To long is just wrong, haha! I love Adidas though, and using their web store is great, no shipping and I'm like you and look for a sale. Adidas is function and style. I'm 5'11", 180 lbs, and prefer large size, great fit but would prefer just a few inches shorter in length... But taller dudes prob like this length so i understand.
I was really sad because after only wearing two times the material on the prime knit on the toe box of the shoe stretched. I didn't even snag it and now it just looks really ugly because there is a big HOLE from the prime knit material and very noticeable because the shoe is white (probably wouldn't be so bad on a dark shoe like black. Very upsetting for a $180 shoe.
Cant say enough good things about them. A great running shoe. My knees and legs love them. No pain or discomfort after a good run. Thats coming from someone with a hx of knee pain. I guess im a girl who is officially in love with mens running shoes.
It's not been a year since I bought these shoes and the sole has cracked of both the shoes. I have a back problem so I needed shoes with extra cushion, I don't run I just walk and they couldn't sustain even a year. Spending $192 for 10 months is not justifiable. i don't know how long will they last for the people who run.
I own 3 pairs of these shoes. I love my first 2 pairs that have more of the cloth type material. It stretches just enough but fits my foot like a glove. My 3rd pair I don't really care for. The top is the mesh material. It is to stretchy and my foot feels like I have zero support on the sides. I love the elevated arch and boost. I feel like I'm walking on air. I wish they would put some piece of support at the toes because when I where them to the gym my feet slide forward with circuit training. I know there are trainers similar to these but I tried them and didn't love them. I hope they make another pair black and white mix for the fall. Mine from last year are the favorite pair of tennis shoes I've ever owned!
Unlike all the hypebeasts out there I actually run in these, with that said I can say that these are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever had. very comfortable. They also give you that spring in your step you need for running. 10/10
I have a different color pair for each day of the week. I am not even kidding. Some for dress and some for hard wear. Hands down this is the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. For anything. Boost tech is incredible. Mix in the Primeknit upper and it becomes better yet.
This is my favorite shoe of all time because of comfort and aesthetics BUT for 180$ they wear out very fast I'm not even running in them and after one day of just waliking at school I had parts of the sole That were all worn out and flat PLEASE MAKE OUTSOLE MORE DURABLE!!
When I tried these on at a running store, I decided to buy them even though they were heavier than I wanted because I was told they would last for more miles because of the rubber outersole and UB cushioning. I was very disappointed that at after 3 months of wear that the rubber sole has worn off the back outside rim of each shoe. My normal running shoes last longer than that. Whil The shoes are good for running and fit like a glove, but I would have opted for lighter, less expensive option if knew they were going to last the same amount of time.
mesh over the front toe area is not supportive enough. On a down hill run my foot slides forward laking enough stability. That said it is the most comfortable run in my life. Looking for a different model with more support up front with the same comfort. HHmmmmm
I'll start by saying I bought these for running and casual wear. I am really excited about these shoes. They are extremly soft and have responsive cushioning, I Didn't get what that meant until I actually put in the running miles. I live in the city so mainly I run on hard pavement and these bad boys did everything right, when your foot hits the ground it supports all of your foot and not just the heel and when your ready to go up for the next stride it is really good at responding to that. I urge those on the fence as I was for three months to get em! Worth the expense if it doesn't dent your wallet so badly. Also for my fellow sneakerheads these look great with joggers, jeans, and khakis, no question they are worth the hype.
I just bought this today at store. Love this shoes so much. One of the most comfortable shoes I've had. The middle part hold my feet so nice. I want to buy another pair differeny colors..waiting until sale ..hehe
I've been wearing this shoe casually for the past 2 weeks and I could not be more happy with it. The shoe is unbelievably comfortable. It's great for people who've come off of knee surgery. It provides the shock absorption that I so desperately need. Big ups to Adidas for making a quality shoe
I always go with Adidas shoes, and was super excited when I ordered these. But they were really uncomfortable. Other Adidas I never even had to 'break in', but these didn't get any less comfortable with wear. I first tried walking around town and my calves got sore, I ran and my soles got sore quick, I boxed and the floating arch support felt like no support at all. My ankles were slipping and hurting so bad after one workout. I'll be returning and trying another style. I still love Adidas for style and comfort, but this one wasn't for me.
These have got to be the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever owned. There is almost no cushion it feels like walking on boards, there's a tongue seem that digs into your upper foot that is just painful after a short time. Got my pair and it was very clear that one shoe was stiffer than the other so it leaves you feeling off balance. Sure they look great but these are the worst shoes I have ever owned , its painful to walk in these let alone run. So disappointed in my purchase.
Arch Perfection but...the back comes up so high that it gave me blisters after wearing for 2 hours! I have high arches so I loved the arch support but sadly I will need to return due to the back. So bummed!
These are the best running shoes I've ever worn. I've logged a lot of miles and those I've logged in these have been the most enjoyable by far. I've recommended these shoes to multiple friends and will continue to do so.
I wanted to love these shoes as my last pair of addidas were my favorite shoes I've ever had. I have narrow but long feet, size 11. These fit true to size and actually hugged the width of my feet which Is so hard to find because most shoes Are too wide. Two drawbacks... Because of the mesh fabric-like construction the fit stretches. It doesn't fit as snug as when I bought them which I need Bc now my foot will actually twist or slide off the sole of the shoe when trying to do some classes and moves. Actually it worries me that I could injur my foot. Also, they are NOISY!!! I know, that sounds rediculous. Seriously though, every step is like a very loud squeak! In the gym you can hear me coming from the other side of it. I would not buy them again for that reason. It's that bothersome. Does anyone else have that problem? I'm sure it's the foam soles which I know are also the higher end selling point of these and what makes them so comfortable. I literally take them off before walking past my little girls room at night so I don't wake her. They are that loud on the wood floors at home. Somewhat laughable but annoying enough to keep me from buying them again esp at their price point. I'll go back to my previous addidas.
The product looks nice and feels nice for the most part, however the back of the shoe comes up so high on the ankle it has given me and many of my friends blisters and the whole shoe becomes uncomfortable to wear after a few hours
I usually wear a 5.5-6 in athletic shoes and took a 5.5 in these Pureboost X. The fit is snug and soft. The floating arch is a cool feature and provides good support. I have a low arch in my left foot and a normal arch on my right, so I do get some cramping in my left foot if I am doing a plyo workout. After a short break-in period, I can now walk and run short distances without any problems. I did have a blister at my heel due to the higher back after the first time I wore them, but since then, that hasn't been a problem. The shoes seem to get dirty very easily, but that is a consequence of the light color scheme I got (light green/blue with pink sole). I've noticed a loose string though, and it's only been a month, so I am a little concerned about that.
There is a very thick seam inside the shoe where the knit upper meets the "tongue" of the shoe. It causes Avery uncomfortable indentation in the top of my foot. If I wear the shoes for very long, they cause numbness on the top of my foot. I've even tried skipping lacing the strings in that area to take some of the pressure off, but it doesn't help much. I bought these shoes on the recommendation of a PT treating me for plantar faschitis, but this seam is so uncomfortable that I will look for an alternative shoe. I was really disappointed because they were so expensive.....
