Rated 5 out of 5Â by jackal love these shoes!
I have been running for 32 years and I think these shoes are the most comfortable ones I have ever used. They form to my foot well and the overall cushioning is way better than anything I have used in recent years. (I have only had them for 3 weeks so I still have to find out how long the sole will last. I typically have to buy a new pair every 3 months because I wear the tread off under the forefoot. I am hoping that these last a little longer than other shoes because of the higher cost.) The one complaint I have is that they are not that great for running in the snow because of the narrow tread depth. I would like to see a winter version of these.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lidia Super Light Weight!
This is an amazing running shoe. So light and comfy. And I can use the mi gadget thingy in the sole (there's a little spot for it under the lining) it was a nice little surprise as I didn't know about it when I purchased it!
The only thing I'm concerned about is the thin material used on the top part near the toes. I've seen this part ripped at the big toe before on another pair of runners, and I'm worried it will happen with these ones.
So, these are purely for running only, not circuit training (e.g. push ups, burpies etc) and I have bought thick socks to protect it from any punctures! Can't wait to wear these at the 15km fun-run next week!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Camboozle YES -- A revolutionary shoe!
Yes to the shoe! A revolutionary shoe, unlike any I have ever ran in or sold. I worked as a salesperson at a running shoe store and fit customers for every type of shoe from every type of company, you name it. This shoe is different from the rest -- it is incredibly comfortable and has a conforming fit. Make sure you buy it at least a half size bigger than your casual shoe size because it runs tight. When it comes to running, I feel like I am bouncing off every step. Never had a problem running in them. Can't wait until this shoe gets out to the public!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ldb I'm thinking of returning...
I tried these shoes on at a local running store so I knew my proper size. I was extremely excited to get out and run in them when I got them. I did about six miles and my feet hurt quite a bit (which is unusual... I run 40+ miles a week on concrete). I think the issue is that they are more narrow than most Adidas shoes. I thought since the material was rather stretchy, that wouldn't be an issue. Apparently I was wrong. Anyways, I'm going to try a few more runs to see if it gets better. I love the extra bounce in my step I get from these shoes but it's just not worth it if I'm in constant pain.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by run56 My new favorite running shoes!!
I am usually skeptical about a "new & improved" running shoe, but the Adidas Boost is truly different. Thought for sure that this shoe would not work for me because I wear custom orthotics and have narrower than average feet, however, these shoes work well with my skinny feet and my orthotics! Ran 5 miles on an indoor track the day after they arrived and my feet and legs felt great! Did an outdoor 4 miler (36 degrees) and 3 miler (63 degrees) the next week. These shoes rock! If these shoes hold up well, I may be able to extend my running career. Thanks Adidas!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DjGinaStar Completely different
I really feel that these shoes are different than any other running shoes I have tried. I'm so surprised at how light they feel, yet they're able to give me the support I need. I like the snug fit, but I'm happy that I followed the recommendation to get a half size larger than normal (I don't like my toes being squished). I'm also happy with the appearance, most women's shoes are girly colors, which is not appealing to me, I like to feel tough when I work out :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by country mouse Feels great beneath your feet
Just got a pair of these shoes. Looks are just ok, but these are the first pair of running shoes where I could actually feel a significant difference in the quality of cushioning beneath my feet. It wasn't just that it has more or less cushioning, but the cushioning just feels better. More forgiving, but not squishy. This is truly a new form of cushioning well worth checking out.
I run mostly on the trail, and use a lighter, lower profile trail shoe there. But these are my go-to road and gym shoes. The upper fits snug, and I like a lot of room in the toe box. But the upper stretches kinda like a sock to fit most feet. In other words, don't worry wide footers, you're in good hands here.
adidas, if you could create a lower profile version of these shoes with less toe-heel drop, that would be very much appreciated.

Rated 3 out of 5 On the fence
Initially I loved this shoe, felt great on my first run. I could definitely sense the benefit of the "boost" sole. Unfortunately I feel like there is not a lot of support to this shoe; I noticed some distinct strain in my ankles after wearing this shoe for a few more runs and then subsequent knee pain. I consider this shoe close to a bare foot run in terms of the support but then there's the added "boost" from the sole so it makes for a strange combination. Not convinced I like it for regular running but perhaps for races. Bought it with a gift card otherwise I'd return it for sure. Must say I adore the bright colors of the fushia version though! Also the size recommendation is correct, go up a half size.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by vandal runner excellent running shoes
When these shoes arrived in the mail I quickly opened the box and tried them on. Even though the color wasn't exactly what I had originally planned on I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on. They were so comfortable and fit like a glove. Other than the fit, I really like the shoe laces, they don't come untied and have never had a problem with them loosening up on a long run. My first run went really well, I went for a nice easy five miler and left with good energy but when I came back I felt even better. The last half of my run was actually my fastest and I felt really energized. Sometimes with a minimalist style shoe my knees hurt but I haven't had any problems with these shoes. The only reason I gave them four stars instead of five was the price adidas was asking for them, but the fit is awesome and the soles of the shoes are squishy and comfortable. My biggest concern is how they're going to hold up after two hundred miles or so, especially for the price they should last a long time. I have put 58 miles on mine in about two weeks and they feel as good now when I put them on as they did the first time I tried them on. I run on gravel, dirt, and asphalt and haven't had any problems except when I step on a rock and the plastic arch on the bottom of the shoes sends it flying like it was stuck in a car tire. I haven't had any problems with the shoes on any of the surfaces and will continue to run in them even after I have written this product review.
