Supernova Sequence Boost 7 Shoes
Brilliantly supporting and rolling running shoe
I've gone through a couple a Supernova Control shoes and loved them but haven't used them since they were replaced with something else. This pair was a bit of an impulse purchase but they felt so good when trying them in the shop that I bought them immediately. Feels great on the track and really happy to have found a a pair of Supernova's with the Boost technology.
Quite a screaming color which I would prefer to be slightly toned down. All in all great shoes!

Love Em,' had to Get Another!!
It is hard to decide which shoe is better, the Glide Boost 6's, or the Sequence 7's. The unsung hero of both models is the breathable mesh. The mesh is great for longer runs and is very comfortable. The reason why the Sequence 7's are so good is because they are great stability shoes. They do what they are designed to do. They are not as cushy as the Glide Boosts, but they promote a smoother ride for overpronators. Once you get going, the cushion is where it needs to be. I bought the black/infrared pair and fell in love, but once Adidas released the navy blue, that was right down my alley!
For those that were expecting a bouncier step, I would recommend the Energy Boosts (for skinnier feet) or the Adistar Boosts (for anyone). The Adistar Boosts covers the most range of applications. If you're looking for a relatively light stability trainer, get the Sequence 7's. Adidas has definitely improved upon the mistakes they made with the Sequence 6's.

Ultra comfortable - Great for overpronation.
This shoe is amazing. I've been searching and researching for a long time looking for good running shoes. I'm 5'10", 260 lbs. I'm really overweight and needed good shoes to help with impact and cushion while providing stability for my overpronation #stepping on the outside of the foot and rolling inward#. These are great. I've had them for a few weeks and have put about 15 miles on them and they're absolutely the best running shoes for my running style. The shoe size I got was a 10.5 and the width is medium, but the way these are built makes them a little wider than normal, which is perfect because I have a wide foot. Highly recommended.

NOT overly cushioned
In short: the Boost Seq7 runs like a lighter weight motion control shoe. Very secure and not very cushioned. I've run in the Seq7 4 times since getting them 2 weeks ago. I also run in pairs of Seq6 and Seq5. The Seq7 is the lightest, and best fitting, but LEAST cushioned of these. Adidas has dropped the weight big-time from the Seq5 and fixed the sloppy/loose heel issue with the Seq6 but the switch from Adiprene+ to Boost makes the shoe LESS cushioned underfoot. As a larger runner, I was hoping for just the opposite.

I thought the boost foam would soften up a shoe a bit more. It's still a pretty stiff, clunky shoe like past versions. Stability is still there, but the bounce is not anything like the other Boost shoes.
I have a narrowish, but medium width foot, but this shoe fits pretty snug through the midfoot. The upper isn't as comfortable as it could be. The plastic eyelets are a little harsh. Seems durable though... The laces are really long.
All-in-all, I am glad the the shoe is a bit lighter and it does feel smoother than previous versions, but just still feels too clunky to me. I had higher hopes for the shoe since I loved the Energy Boost, but need something with stability. Probably not a shoe I'll buy again.

My immediate thoughts on the Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost were that they look surprisingly chunky on the medial side. The Sequence series has always in my opinion looked sleek and refined, whereas the new Stableframe, and contrasting colors make the midsole look pretty chunky. However, there is a reason for this, and Adidas will be wanting to highlight their newest technologies. The Stableframe also actually rises up above where your foot sits, meaning that your foot is held in a bed of EVA offering excellent support. Putting them on, and you get the now familiar soft feeling of Boost, and this is a big step in the right direction for the series, and Adidas as a whole. The rest of the shoe, and the lateral side looks good. Add a half size to your regular running shoes should be sufficient.
The Supernova Sequence has had an entire overhaul, and is pretty much a new shoe. The midsole is obviously where the biggest changes have taken place, and gone is the Pro-moderator bar that will be familiar with recent users of the series. Gone is the Adiprene+ midsole and gone is the Formotion unit in the heel. The midsole has been replaced with a combination of Boost and EVA (55% EVA 45% Boost, only 5% less boost than the Supernova Glide Boost). The Stableframe is the new over-pronation prevention mechanism, and works in a similar way to a dual density midsole. The EVA is denser and stops your foot from rolling. However, the Stableframe also rises up above your foot, and holds your foot in a cradle offering superb support. The Torsion system however remains and extends onto the medial side of the heel to offer even more support, almost holding the Boost material in a cage to stop it expanding laterally that way. There is also an extension of the EVA right to the toe to help prevent late stage over-pronation and guide your foot through a smooth gait cycle.
The upper has changed slightly and offers an engineered mesh, with welded on overlays. The interior of the shoe uses a sock like liner, and the tongue is attached to make the shoes feel like slippers. The heel unit is surprisingly soft and flexible, unlike most support shoes where the heel counter feels stiff and is physically hard. The heel on the Supernova Sequence Boost is almost like an Inov-8 F-Lite 195 which was a big surprise, and feels very good.
The outsole is where the fewest changes have taken place, and still uses the highly grippy and durable Continental rubber to stick you to the road in any weather. This is a partnership that Adidas have made full use of, and I'm surprised no other brands have tried something similar.
50 MILES IN...
The Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost offers incredible support for a shoe that feels so effortless to run in. It gives support and cushioning in heaps, and it is amazing that the primary difference between this and the Supernova Glide Boost is only 5% Boost material. I give these a 10 out of 10
High: Comfortable, bouncy traditional high-drop stability control running shoe. Upper is super nice.
Low: Could be a little lighter.

I've been wearing Supernova Sequence shoes for quite a few years now. Overall, I'm happy with this model.
The cushion throughout the shoe feels good. The difference that I've noticed from the Sequence 6 is in the rubber sole; it's more streamlined in the forefoot and the rear/heel area.
I haven't had a chance to run on wet sidewalks, so I can't say if the grip of the rubber sole has improved. I know that previous models tended to slip.

I am really disappointed in the color offerings of all of the recent shoes Adidas has been putting out... I like BRIGHT shoes. These are all so boring. And why are colors so gender specific- i have to wear mens shoes becasue womens shoes are ALWAYS too narrow and I don't want pink. But all colors should be offered for all shoes regardless of the pink/purple is for girls... blue is for boys nonsense. Its 2014. Get with it.

Sizing is tighter than other adidas shoes I have bought.
