micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Go 1/2 size up (common for Adidas) and you will never buy a different type of shoe in your life. These are literally the MOST COMFORTABLE shoes I have ever worn. Ever. No exaggeration here. When I have a lot of errands to run around town, sometimes I don't want to walk anywhere; then I put these on and...WOW. Everything seems easier. Plus, I use them as everyday shoes, and I have received more compliments on them than any other article of clothing I've ever owned--by FAR (I bought the red/white). Strangers walk up to you just to talk about them! I can't even count the number of people who have asked about them. And every time they do, I give them a whole spiel about how great they are. HIGHLY recommended!!!
As a high school distance runner, I have run over 150+ miles in these. As a neutral striker, I was looking for something that would give me support in the mid foot and in parts of the heel. These did not give me proper support in that area, and my runs would be very uncomfortable. However, these are perfect for tempos and other speed workouts.
I got these for my upcoming Cross Country season. My previous trainers were the Adidas Energy Boosts 2. These supernovas are pretty similar to the energy boosts, but I think that I like them a little bit more. First of all i think that these are a bit more durable and have better traction. I have had them for about two weeks and have ran a 10 mile race in them, they are very comfortable and have not given me any problems so far. The only thing I don't like about this shoe is that it is a little heavy.
I love love love my pure boosts!!! Love the design, it looks great on foot even with a size like 9.5. The arch is pretty high so my foot had to get used to it, since I don't have high arches, but I love them for walking and jogging mostly. I feel like they slip a little if you do other workouts. But overall-- I want more pairs in different colours!!
I LOVE the style of these shoes (why I gave 2 stars), ok support, enough shock resistance for what I needed (vacation walking). But they squeeze the middle of my feet sooo bad. I have fairly narrow feet and couldn't believe after an hour or two they were hurting and at the end of the day felt such a relief to take them off. I wanted them to be my favorite, but until they can come out with a wide, or perhaps revisit the tension caused by the super unique design, I will have to resist. Also note, they felt fine when I tried them on in store:/
Really comfortable shoe. I would have given this shoe five stars except I am undetermined if the cushioning in the forefoot is less than previous or not. After some longer runs, I've found my front foot pads a little tender; it may be because I have been off running for a period because of injury and am now getting back to longer distances. Still the shoe forms around the foot very nicely and the heel cushioning and support is excellent.
These shoes offer incredible heel and arch support. Similar to orthotics, it took a few times wearing them to acclimate my feet to them. After the first time wearing them, my heels and arches felt a bit strained, however they felt so good when I put them on that I continued to wear them and after 4-5 days my feet now feel great during and after I wear them. I'm very active and I LOVE these running shoes. Be patient with them, just like orthotics, your feet need to acclimate to them, but once they do, they're fabulous!!
Very comfortable shoes. I had worn out shoes before so I decided to buy these and I didn't really have to break them in. Just put on these shoes and run! On my first run(on a track) they felt great. It gave my legs great support. The quality of the shoe is my favourite thing. I can just hold this shoes in front of me and be in awe of it. I also like to wear Adidas socks with these shoes, it makes everything far more perfect being geared up with Adidas. #allin #firstneverfollows
I have been training/running half-marathons and marathons in Adidas Energy Boost shoes because I like the way the feel, but the soles would wear out quickly. These shoes I love because they are very comfortable and durable lasting a lot longer period of time and miles. Only con is the plastic side piece can tightness in the mid-foot area with runs over about 5 miles.
Really wanted to love and keep these shoes, but I just can't. After one 40 minute run in these the back of my heel is completely torn up. Overall the shoes are the most amazing things I have ever put on my feet but even for just walking I can see this heel thing being an issue. They are going back.
I talked with friend who wore this shoe on family vaca in WA D.C. she said after walking continually her feet were not sore or tired. I wear these shoes for work..health care. Extremely comfortable with great support. I have a narrow foot. The FIT is perfect. I will get another pair. Have recommended to many people
I love everything about this shoe. The cushioning is amazingly comfortable. My toes aren't constricted and my heel is held properly. The Continental tread should be durable. I tried a couple of other Boost models before finding this great shoe.
I fell in love with this shoe the moment I put it on. It feels like I'm walking on a cloud and the shoe wraps around my arch and gives it an amazing amount of support. All in all I absolutely love this shoe and would buy again.
I love the glove-like fit and the way the upper hugs my arch. The floral design is awesome. I experienced a few hot spots under my toes during a 13 mile run in these, so I stick with them for shorter distances.
The back of these shoes is way too high, it caused a blister on my heel within the first 10 minutes of a run. I had to take them off to get back home. Other than the back of the shoe being designed horribly, they fit like a glove. Although they did hurt my arch after running as well. Not impressed.
I have skinny skinny feet and these things are super snug. The laces are pointless because there's a band that goes over the top of your foot that tightens the shoe. Also, get a half size up, I has to send mine back and get a bigger size. It wasnt even close to normal size for me.
First, the shoe is a great combination of cushion and response. The transition is seamless between foot plant and toe-off. Second, the upper is very comfortable. While the forefoot is a little narrow for me there are no friction points because the material works with the foot and is very forgiving. Great shoe, wish Adidas had a trail version.
Awesome training and running shoe. It looks great, comfortable as can be, like walking on air. BUT, taking off a star because the sizing is whacked! Usually wear a size 12, ordered up 1/2 sz to 12.5 and though they fit, barely any wiggle room. Size 13 would probably be perfect. I'd keep that in mind if ordering.
This shoe is perfect for me. I hope Adidas continues to make this shoe without changing much. The last shoe I used was a different brand and was way too cushy and soft and actually ended up causing foot and ankle pain. I switched to the Supernova Glide Boost 8 based on a recommendation and couldn't be happier. I've been running with this shoe for a couple months now. The shoe is supportive, comfortable, and still manages to be responsive. The Boost material is phenomenal. I highly recommend this shoe.
I had the shoes for about two months , and did some light running and walking in them, and I didn't wear them every day because I had other shoes, but I was walking yesterday and a huge hole ripped by itself in the mesh of my shoe, after light wear.
The back of the shoes is too high for me. It caused blisters on both achilles after 10 min of running outside. I had to fold them over to get back home. I had them altered and the back cut and lowered and now they fit perfectly. This is my first Adidas pair, I owe 5 other running shoes , different brand that never caused any issues, even brand new.
This has been by far the best shoe I have bought and owned. These are my everyday shoes from: doing yard work, walking/jogging, biking, working (while standing on my feet 12hrs out my 16hr shift), and just anything.
I think that the Pure Boost ZG often gets overshadowed by the Ultra Boost, but it all depends on what type of activity you're using it for. Of all the boost shoes (and I own them all, hah!) I think the ZG is the best for cross training. You get the comfort of boost but a little more rigidity for other activities (lifting, cross training, etc.) as well as great lateral support. And it looks GREAT on foot - better than in the photos!
Maybe it's just my feet, but the backs are way too high and really irritate my heels. Also, though I do have naturally flat feet, after a few blocks in these my arches kill. Otherwise the sneakers are quite comfy on the balls of my feels and pretty cool looking.
THE MOST COMFORTABLE RUNNING/WALKING SHOE EVER! I have high arches and a very particular toe on my left foot. I have tried several different brands and styles but all were lacking in one way or another. On my way to buy the Ultra Boost I stumbled on to these and really liked the design of the Color Core Black / Black (BB4017) Pureboost X. This shoe is like no other shoe I have every encountered. It literally fits like a glove. I always size up in a running shoe and did the same with this one and for me it was a good decision. The shoe has a glove like feel with amazing arch support and it's like walking on air. Plus the design is really cool! what other shoe has a floating arch support? Good job Adidas.
