The purpose of this appraisal is to evaluate the Adidas Ultra Boost running shoe based on three criteria. These criteria include comfort, durability, and performance. With the latest technology integrated into their product, Adidas claims that the Ultra Boost is currently the best running shoe on the market. Therefore, the targeted market for this product is frequent runners (~30 miles per week). Comfort When looking for a running shoe, comfort is my main priority. I define comfort as the ability to go on a 10 mile run without feeling any discomfort. The Adidas Ultra Boost integrates one of its newest technologies, Boost, into the sole of the shoe. The Boost sole literally feels like you’re walking on a cloud. It is extremely responsive and you feel the material squish with every step. This helps to minimize the negative impact that running has on your joints. Unfortunately, I did notice that the shoe fits very narrow. If you are someone with wider feet, you might want to find a wider shoe. After wearing the Adidas Ultra Boost for multiple runs and feeling no discomfort in my feet, I can confidently say that the comfort of the Ultra Boost is top-of-the-line and ideal for frequent runners. Durability Since the Adidas Ultra Boost is relatively expensive ($180), most users are going to want to get their money’s worth. I define durability as a shoe that can remain in good condition for 6 months while running 30 miles per week. In my experience, I have went on 10 mile runs every other day for four months, and the shoes have shown minimal signs of wear. The tread on the bottom of the shoe is still fresh, resulting in a great grip between the shoe and the terrain. Based on what I have already experienced, I expect this great condition to continue for the next several months. Therefore, the Adidas Ultra Boost is great in terms of durability for frequent running. Performance I rate the performance of a running shoe based on its support and grip. The upper part of the Adidas Ultra Boost is constructed out of Primeknit, a formfitting material that adapts to the natural curvature of the foot. Primeknit provides a snug, sock-like fit, ensuring that your foot is well supported. The Continental rubber outsole is made from the same material as automobile tires—ensuring the best grip in wet and dry conditions. The performance of the Adidas Ultra Boost is unmatched by other shoes. After a thorough evaluation of the Adidas Ultra Boost, I can see why Adidas claims to have created the best running shoe. The Ultra Boost has excelled in comfort, durability, and performance, making it an ideal shoe for frequent runners. I highly suggest purchasing this shoe, and I hope you have the same positive experience that I’ve had.
I love love love these shoes. They are smaller than the picture makes them look, but in the best way possible. they are extremely comfortable, much like walking on memory foam. the arch support is outstanding. Two things that did not bother me but might be a problem for others: 1.) the mesh is very thin. if you are looking for a shoe to wear in the winter, this is probably not for you 2. the back does come up very high. i can definitely see how this might be problematic/a cause for blisters for some people. i have a pretty arched tendon back there so it's not a problem at all for me. Another thing to note, the bottom mesh is not connected to the sole in the middle. this is not a problem at all it's just not something i noticed before purchasing. (Also the aglets are pink and blue) Overall, this is probably my favorite sneaker i've ever purchased. i looove these shoes!
These shoes live up to the standards and reviews everyone has said before. There are a few issues that I have, which may or may not be a deal breaker. I went down a size which is perfect length and width now, but there is still heel slippage. My friends have the same shoe and also encounter the back part of the shoe slipping while playing. The loose back seems to also affect the shoe laces loosening up. I like my shoes nice and snug and hate to stop to retie my laces. The biggest issue with the white shoes is that Adidas did not use continental rubber for the sole. At first the traction does its job, but eventually you'll find yourself wiping the bottom every other possession in the game. This is annoying! Overall these shoes are great though. For its price, there really isn't anything that can argue with it unless you grab the Crazy Explosives. If you're looking for a low top shoe that gives you the freedom to move like a guard and so hard cuts, this is your shoe. The boost sole is also super comfortable and works for impact protection.
For some reason, red adidas T's in clima-anything instead of cotton are very hard to find, so I was happy to find this shirt online to go with my NMD's. It is comfortable, even for bigger guys, as it is not too narrowly cut. It is high quality, an easy recommendation for me.
The Ultra Boosts are great shoes with two critical flaws in my experience (if you are using them as running shoes): 1) Primeknit durability, and 2) sockliner quality. 1) Primeknit durability: Within a few months of use, the Primeknit upper (which is super comfortable, btw) started to fray on the outside of the left foot. A month later, there was a visible hole that got bigger with each run. The shoes will soon be retired to "around the house" wear as my pinky toe is starting to poke out of the shoe. Suboptimal performance for a shoe at this price point. 2) Sockliner quality: After a few runs, I noticed that the balls of my feet would hurt after a mile or so. I took out the sockliner, compared it to the sockliner in my Energy Boost 2s, and noticed that the Energy Boost had a much thicker sockliner. I put those in my Ultra Boosts and the problem went away - I'd recommend doing something similar if you get these, but adidas should consider a redesign to address the issue. Overall impression: great shoe for everyday wear, good running shoe with some critical flaws, and recommend with some hesitation.
15 yr old got blisters on back of ankles, she wanted to see if she could get used to but the shoe ripped within 2 weeks just wearing around school so we sent it back. Sad because she loved them and would've been comfortable besides blisters, they just come up to high in the back.
Perfection -- I've worn the original Ultraboost or the UltraboostST in my past three marathons. Something made be decide to try #uncaged. BEST. SHOE. EVER. Has everything the others do in cushion but my entire foot has truly found its happy place -- also affords much better opportunity for ankle flexion ... same sole as the other models which do fine in rain (e.g. BOS 2015). I'm sure I'll have to get a pair in red too!
Not your typical tennis shoe that feels like cinder blocks strapped to your feet. Let's face it, most "tennis" shoes suck because they are so darn heavy and severely inhibit one's mobility. I've been through the gamut of tennis shoes and have found these to closest resemble a lightweight running shoe yet simultaneously provide the stability and durability of a heavy court shoe. Adidas has done a fine job engineering this particular iteration of tennis shoes. I'm hopeful that future versions will take on similar design qualities and characteristics.
These trainers are the best! I love the fit, the colors are exactly as shown. The feeling of a snugly-fitting sock is amazing - like wearing slippers in the gym. The floating arch is such a nice touch and the feeling is great - your foot is never 'hanging' in the air, it is supported 100% of the time, regardless of the motion you are performing. All in all - my best purchase so far.
I was skeptical on buying these shoes at first, but decided I would get them to use as shoes to practice in this season. The moment I opened them up I was in love! I am a huge fan of all white shoes and the color is great, the look is great and they feel awesome! They are a little tight but I have yet to break them in! Totally would buy again.
It's not been a year since I bought these shoes and the sole has cracked of both the shoes. I have a back problem so I needed shoes with extra cushion, I don't run I just walk and they couldn't sustain even a year. Spending $192 for 10 months is not justifiable. i don't know how long will they last for the people who run.
I own 3 pairs of these shoes. I love my first 2 pairs that have more of the cloth type material. It stretches just enough but fits my foot like a glove. My 3rd pair I don't really care for. The top is the mesh material. It is to stretchy and my foot feels like I have zero support on the sides. I love the elevated arch and boost. I feel like I'm walking on air. I wish they would put some piece of support at the toes because when I where them to the gym my feet slide forward with circuit training. I know there are trainers similar to these but I tried them and didn't love them. I hope they make another pair black and white mix for the fall. Mine from last year are the favorite pair of tennis shoes I've ever owned!
Unlike all the hypebeasts out there I actually run in these, with that said I can say that these are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever had. very comfortable. They also give you that spring in your step you need for running. 10/10
This is my favorite shoe of all time because of comfort and aesthetics BUT for 180$ they wear out very fast I'm not even running in them and after one day of just waliking at school I had parts of the sole That were all worn out and flat PLEASE MAKE OUTSOLE MORE DURABLE!!
mesh over the front toe area is not supportive enough. On a down hill run my foot slides forward laking enough stability. That said it is the most comfortable run in my life. Looking for a different model with more support up front with the same comfort. HHmmmmm
I'll start by saying I bought these for running and casual wear. I am really excited about these shoes. They are extremly soft and have responsive cushioning, I Didn't get what that meant until I actually put in the running miles. I live in the city so mainly I run on hard pavement and these bad boys did everything right, when your foot hits the ground it supports all of your foot and not just the heel and when your ready to go up for the next stride it is really good at responding to that. I urge those on the fence as I was for three months to get em! Worth the expense if it doesn't dent your wallet so badly. Also for my fellow sneakerheads these look great with joggers, jeans, and khakis, no question they are worth the hype.
First off go half a size down (like most adidas shoes as of late). Traction- PHENOMENAL Cushion- Boost is great but a little firm. Minimal in the forefoot. Materials- Excellent. Fit- It is OK if you get the laces tied tight. CMON ADIDAS, get the fit right and you will completely take over!!!! Favorite basketball shoe I have ever played in nonetheless!
The cushioning are A1, looks great. Overall i'm pretty satisfy with the shoes. But, i suggest to go full size down, i went half size down the first time, and they were still long, so i went down a full size, it will get a better lock down.
I just bought this today at store. Love this shoes so much. One of the most comfortable shoes I've had. The middle part hold my feet so nice. I want to buy another pair differeny colors..waiting until sale ..hehe
I've been wearing this shoe casually for the past 2 weeks and I could not be more happy with it. The shoe is unbelievably comfortable. It's great for people who've come off of knee surgery. It provides the shock absorption that I so desperately need. Big ups to Adidas for making a quality shoe
I love the look and feel of this shoe and was so excited to try them on the first time. Based on other people's reviews I went a 1/2 size up and ordered a 9 when I'm usually an 8.5. They were WAY too big. Had to return them and now I'm not sure if I should order an 8.5 or go all the way down to an 8.
I always go with Adidas shoes, and was super excited when I ordered these. But they were really uncomfortable. Other Adidas I never even had to 'break in', but these didn't get any less comfortable with wear. I first tried walking around town and my calves got sore, I ran and my soles got sore quick, I boxed and the floating arch support felt like no support at all. My ankles were slipping and hurting so bad after one workout. I'll be returning and trying another style. I still love Adidas for style and comfort, but this one wasn't for me.
I absolutely love these shoes! I had surgery on my right ankle last November and I have noticed a huge difference in my walk. It makes my foot feel very stable and balanced. They almost have a bouncy like feel to them in the heel and they are super light. I'd say the only thing I really don't like are the 3 stripes design on the top of the foot, but other than that they're super cute aswell! So glad I purchased, these are worth every penny in my opinion.
The cleat is built to be light as possible and created for a profit margin. I've always been an Adidas cleat guy but they broke not even a month after buying. The stud plate started to peel away after the first use but the stud just broke clean off before the cleat plate had a chance to rip off. The 5 Star 4.0's were known to have this same problem and clearly it wasn't addressed.
Arch Perfection but...the back comes up so high that it gave me blisters after wearing for 2 hours! I have high arches so I loved the arch support but sadly I will need to return due to the back. So bummed!
