This purchase was definitely worth it. I totally would recommend buying. They are one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. I only have a problem with piling. After maybe 3 or 4 wears they started piling and it it was upsetting. I absolutely love the shoes reguardless, just upset with the piling.
Overall this is a great shoe - I would recommend it and it feels and looks like a premium shoe. Buy if you want a high quality shoe with great traction, good impact protection and support. Avoid if you want something minimal and light or hate having your toes bang against the forefoot. Here is my breakdown: Comfort - between the neoprine ankle collar, boost cushion and Primeknit they are quite comfortable. Traction - best I have tried! Works well on clean or dusty floors, minimal wiping need to keep the outsole sticky (I have the solid outsole shoe though - the translucent may attract some more dust). Fit - a bit narrow and long - if you have a wider foot the Primeknit is a better option but I would try in the store. Lockdown - heel lockdown is fine but I find my foot sliding forward in the shoe. Thus, I end up banging my toes on the front of the shoe at times and it would have been nice if the inner shoe had more padding there or if my foot was just locked in better in the mid and forefoot. In the defense of the shoe, I think any shoe with traction this good will probably cause your foot to shift inside the shoe. Support - A good deal of support around the heel plus a raised section of the outsole on the outer portion of the forefoot keeps your foot for tipping over or moving much laterally. Cushion - Fantastic in the heel area - great impact protection without being too soft. The boost thins out a lot in the forefoot and they use a hard stobel piece in between the boost in the insole so the forefoot cushion is pretty firm and responsive - I would have preferred the forefoot to be softer but it still has some compression to absorb impact. Looks - they look great, can wear them on and off the court no problem. Durability/Quality - I haven't had them for long so I can't say for sure but the build quality seems quite high (the outsole rubber does not seem meant for outdoor play though). There is also some coverage on top of the Primeknit on the outside of the medial toe to keep the material from ripping if you drag your toes. Other thoughts - the shoe is pretty heavy and you notice it on your foot so I would think some might find it bulky feeling.
I bought these shoes for marathon training and I am now on my second pair. They are the perfect balance of comfort for longer runs, combined with speed. I also now need only one shoe for training and racing! Brilliant.
Best basketball shoe I've worn to date. I usually go for a shoe that supports the ankle as well as overall comfort . I got a size bigger than what I normally wear and it feels great. Not too big or too wide which was something I was afraid of getting a bigger size.
I have narrow feet & this shoe is a God send. Because the center isn't attached to the bottom of the shoe, I don't have a problem with my foot sliding. The back does rub initially but after a 2 weeks of wearing them I don't notice
Had to put my Boosts from last year to rest and upgraded to the PureBOOST. These are undoubtedly the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They literally feel like they are part of my body. So lightweight, extremely comfortable and the design is so so cool. I have had multiple strangers compliment these shoes which is rare in lower Manhattan. I highly recommend these for running, cardio or just as your everyday go to if you are fortunate enough to wear sneakers to the office. :-)
These are just so very comfortable. My go-to running sneakers for several years was the Adizero Adios. I don't care for the new boost model of that shoe; something changed in the feel and support. Although these sit a little higher, they are my current fav; have 2 pair (and bought 2 more for family members). I'm not sure how the quality will play out. On my Adios, the mesh top eventually got holes, although it took a while. Will be curious to see how long the bounce sole has bounce.
It's true to size! The shoes are well designed. I like how the shoe conforms to my feet. It is very very comfortable! I've always ran using the Free RN from another brand and this PureBoost X ATR are far more superior and more comfortable for running!
the toe box seems wider in the 6, so for me it's been the comfiest shoe to date. Lots of feedback from the road, while providing adequate cushioning and support. Lightweight for 5k's up to the marathon. Recently ran a 2:44 marathon in them, so pretty happy with that!
I stumbled upon these after the Nike flyknit 4.0 were changed in 2016 I got the pearl color 1st and are so comfortable that I bought the black now they do run a little big I'm usually a 7.5 in my nikes but I had to get a 7 in both of these , I don't wear them for running but I can walk all day in them and they are super cuchioned and nothing runs at all I do wear them with seamless socks tho , I'm really picky with my shoes as I have nerve damage in my left foot after a back procedure and being a cosmetologist I invest in my shoes so these are deff at the top of my HG shoes , I bought the NMD 's but I don't find them nearly as comfortable as these !!!
This product is outstanding. My pair was the red, white, and blue edition and they were the best basketball shoes I've honestly ever had. To me, these top all of the other major brand shoes and show superior aspects. The grip was probably the best part about them; I am a quick point guard and the grip on these never held me back and lasted a very long time. I didn't have to start wiping the bottoms until about 3 months after I got them. They are also extremely comfortable especially in the sole. Adidas has changed the game with their BOOST technology in the soles and it provides my feet with the comfort they need. Also noting that I've had the same pair for 5 months and they are just starting to wear off. Thank you Adidas. Definitely buying more from you all.
I have a hard time finding a shoe to fit my arch (i don't want to rely on an insert) with the floating arch it really helped with it. With that being said, cause do tend to wear a converse all star or a vans shoe my feet are used to be forced to be flat so after wearing the boot pures for a while my arch did hurt a lil bit.
The Pure Boost X and XTR with floating arch are the best!! I purchased my first pair of PBX hoping they would help with severe foot pain. I credit these shoes for saving my feet! I just ordered my second pair and got the XTR's. I like the added traction and they are the most comfortable shoes ever! Great design. I did read one review about the heel flap causing blisters with ankle socks. I agree it seems stiffer than my first pair but I just folded it down for the first time walking and have had no issues. I think once it loosens up it will be fine and actually hugs your feet. I hope you never discontinue this floating arch design! These are so much more stylish than the orthopedic route I was headed. Thank you!!
High quality shoes. Very comfortable and has good support all over. This shoe does tend to run narrow. I have wide feet and even with a half size up from my true size, I need to go up 1 full size for feet to feel comfortable. Feels like you can move in any direction.
I love this shoe! I have a high arch in my foot and they feel so comfortable and light. They are true to size I did wear ankle socks and had no trouble! I can tell they will stretch a little so I'm glad I stuck with my normal size. I will be getting other colors!
These shoes are the best basketball shoes I've ever played in. I've played in several top of the line Nike basketball shoes but these are better in every way, unless you like their style better. I was so satisfied with the traction on these shoes and it lasts forever. Also they're very comfortable and the boost in the sole is amazing. Great shoes for the price . definitely recommending these , you won't regret buying them. ADIDAS WAY TO GO
Runs a tad small, puts pressure on my ankle that gets uncomfortable. Light and easy to run fast in with tons of grip. I did find a return of shin splints after switching to these cleats, and not any ankle support.
Crazylight? More like Crazyheavy. The boost in shoe is a little stiff in my opinion but the way they implement the boost was cool because the impact protection. I weigh around 235 and shoe is great when I land hard on the court. Do not go true to size!!! I urge you to go half a size down. Too much heel slip while I was running up and down the court even using nba socks. I have kind of a wide foot but I killed it going true to size because when I went half a size down it wasnt bad at all! Traction was great indoors but for some reason I slipped a few times outdoors.
Long time user of Supernova Glides, bought the Bostons for speedwork and races. Quality is excellent, boost midsole delivers as always and they are very eye catching shoes. Only downside is the sizing, they definitely run 1/2 size small compared to my Supernova Glides.
No secret by now how comfortable Boost is...so I already expected 5 stars there. What I'm most impressed with is the grip on the translucent outsole. I do a lot of cutting and direction changes on the court and I felt secure the entire time. This was my first Primeknit pair of sneakers and I really dig the fit and flexibility. This won't be my last pair for sure.
This is a backward step for Boston lovers, because the fitting has gone from perfect to far too wide. You can feel the difference as soon as you run. On the plus side I very much like the way the tongue is sewn into the shoe
Pros: this shoe is as light as they say they are Very comfortable They look good on foot Don't have to break them in Cons: I don't know if this was with just mine but the traction isn't very good They run a little bit big
These shoe are extremely comfortable I'll give them that, but I play basket ball at a competitive level unlike most of the people who prkbably review these shoes . These shoes are absolutely terrible I got them my size and my heal kept on slipping out of the back, so I returned them and got a smaller size it was still doing the same thing every time I ran and cut my heel slipped out. Seriously please listen to me and get another sneaker for basketball, and if you don't you'll regret it like I did
I wish I had read the reviews. Wore no show socks and now have terrible cuts in the back of my foot from where the back rubs. Have to wear bandaids there now because they hurt so bad. I'm hoping if I buy higher socks they won't hurt. Otherwise the rest of the show feels like walking on a padded surface. The style also makes my 9.5 feet appear much smaller. Wish they didn't rub because I'm pretty sure that even with different socks the back will still be a problem.
I love these because not only are they sharp as heck but I am getting the BOOST ride coupled with the extra support you need to go any direction without rolling my ankles. Great fit. Toe box is excellent. True to size. 5 stars across the board!
