Great shoes, the speed lace system is impossible to find in ANY stores if you have to replace it. You have to contact the company that makes the shoes for Adidas. This company is AGRON and the number is 1-800-966-7697. They were very good to work with and sent a replacement lace system out free of charge.
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!
I just completed my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. I purchased the Terrex Fast X as a replacement shoe in Daleville, VA and finished my journey with them on Mt Katahdin. Great shoe excellent grip on rocks and dry quickly after becoming wet. I would highly recommend this shoe. I will be wearing them on the PCT next summer. Toasted Toad
Absolutely the best hiking shoe I ever owned. Came from the Merrel brand, needed something less sneaker like, but not a full blown hiking shoe with all the clunkyness. This thing feels perfect the minute you put in on, no breaking in necessary. Good job Adidas!
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!
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 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 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 didn't plan on spending a lot on jogging trainers. I've only recently started jogging and realised i needed something with more support, light weight and comfort. After trying a range of different shoes from different manufactures i put these on and all i can say is wow! I knew straight away I had to buy them, well worth the price. I even where them to the gym and the comfort, bounce and support are excellent for gym use too.
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
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.
I am a carpenter and occasional hiker. Got these because they felt real good in the REI store and they looked very cool too ( got the dk green/black), go great with my camo and army green stuff! The more I wear them the more I like them, they fit perfect (I am an 11-1/2 D and that's what I got and they fit! Great support, but feel very light! I reach for them in my closet, amongst many other high end boots, they are currently my favorites. The lacing system is very nice, they cinch up evenly with pretty much one pull, and they loosen up for removal very easily too, this is a feature that you appreciate a few days after you purchase these! Great hiking shoes, I hope they never change them, I'm buying another pair right away!!
I purchased these shoes after having a entry level trail shoe made by Adidas. Loved the previous shoe, it preformed flawlessly. Only drawback to the shoes is they run narrow in the toe box. I bought them for work. I am a garbage man. I have had them all. Danner, Columbia, Timberland, ect. $250 boots that last 6 months and fail at being waterproof almost instantly. This shoe has a toe guard and Gore-Tex. I wore the soles off the previous shoes without my feet ever getting wet. This shoe is pretty stiff, with great support. I love the true orthotic insole, it helps me fight fatigue since I am on my feet for 7 hours.
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.
