micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
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.
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 have ran in the sequence boost 7, 8 and now the 9. The sequence 9 is very plush, supportive and comfortable for runs of any length. I like the "stableframe" method of providing an all around supportive shoe.
Over the past year I've tried the ultra boost (not enough support) and the sequence boost (too bulky) and I finally found the perfect running shoe for me. I've been running 4-8 miles in these every day for 2 weeks and they've been holding up great. As you can see from the picture the only part that has been wearing down is the plastic torsion system in the middle, but that's not a big deal. If you don't run on rocky trails like I do this wouldn't be a problem for you. Overall this shoe is great!
Adidas Supernova Glide 8 This is the shoe I have been looking for. If you are a runner you fully understand what I’m talking about here. We all seek ”that” shoe that will contribute to the pleasures of running, and not just another pair of shoes that will enable you to run. Yes, this shoe enables you to run, but dang it is the most comfortable shoe I’ve had to date. I put in over 50 miles a week on the road…which is difficult on it’s own, since it is road running after all …not trail. But these shoes have really changed my outlook on the road. Quality: I have probably 150 miles on these so far and no major sign of wear and tear. I was worried about the Continental sole, since I had heard it wears fast, I have not experienced this. It’s funny that I talked trash on these shoes before trying them, saying the Boost was a scam. Trust me, it is no scam. We will see if it breaks down, supposedly it does not….it’s like magic. Score 5/5 Comfort: There is a reason why this shoe was voted Runner's World Editor's Choice twice. Fit is snug, not as snug as a Salomon Sense Pro. That said it is not tight in anyway, so wider feet peeps I would not worry too much, the mesh upper I think will adapt nicely. The toe box is no Altra, so if you are looking the spread the toes this is not the shoe. Good ventilation so far, but haven’t had them in temp’s over 90 yet…and not looking forward to that anyways… Weighing in at 10.7 ounces (size 9) I really wish they were a bit lighter, but for an everyday runner it’s within range of competitors. Also, I would rather have a great shoe that weights 10.7 than a bad shoe that weights 9. Score 5/5 Price: At $130 Retail - this is a great price for the Boost line. Anything above this is my tipping point though. 5/5 Looks: Adidas always keeps it so fresh and so clean. Score 5/5 Overall: 20/20
Such a nice running shoe! Has a good amount of cushion, and last for so many miles! Only complaint is that the arch support is lacking, but that can be fixed with an insert and makes for an awesome pair of shoes!
These are the 4th Supernova's I have worn and the Supernova Glide 8s don't disappoint. The are extremely comfortable and the boost technology is very apparent and a plus. These are great when walking too, as they are my favorite for walking long distances (10 miles).
Goodness Gracious Me! I feel like i'm walking on the moon on air! These trainers arrived today and are unbelievably comfortable, I think more than the ESM range that I also bought! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE TRAINERS! Superb!!!! I love the additional Achilles support too!
I just love these shoes. I had previously had more cushioned/supportive shoes, but these feel much less restrictive, but still with enough support and cushioning to make the miles pass easily. They are for neutral runners, but I have mild over-pronation (not a lot) and they aren't giving me any issues. I am a mid-foot striker. The boost is great, really responsive. Firm at lift off, and then gives you extra spring. The shoes feel lighter than they actually are. I tend to run 5-10 km, maybe 3-4 times a week, and they are holding up really well. I think that they look good, too!
cons :heavy as it is and a bit too much once it touches water coz of the sponge material used throughout the upper. :the hard layer used above the boost material creates a high pressure area into the arch as the feet naturally flattens. pro :good for a short runs in cold condition on hard / rocky terrain in my opinion :very good at power walks on hard / rocky terrain as i see it
