I now have 3 pairs of the ultra booat and can't imagine another shoe as comfy as these. I only wear Adidas but the ultra boost are by far the best. Can't get a more comfortable and true to size shoe out there! Defenitly worth the price! Way to go Adidas!
I'm lucky enough to have picked these out as a Parkrun Sweatshop prize back in May this year and wanted something better than my cheap Karrimors. So when I was told I could pick anything off the shelf at any price, I was like a kid in a sweet shop! These were an instant favourite because of how comfy they were in the shop. The upper fits like a glove around my feet and the sole makes walking and running feel as though you are walking on air. Now, historically I tend to get a bit of discomfort with any new pair of trainers which tends to disappear after a few short outings, so I wasn't put off by the tingley pins and needles I felt on my first few runs. However, I have persevered and run almost 200 miles in them but I consistently start to feel the pins and needles effect after only 4 miles and by 6 miles it becomes almost unbearable. It has got better over time and I ran a half marathon in them recently, but they were extremely uncomfortable from 8 miles onwards. Some have commented on the durability of them, and while mine are not falling apart, the black grip on the soles wore down to flat very quickly. Something I wouldn't expect from a pair of trainers with such a hefty price tag on them. I really wanted to get on with these trainers but unfortunately, I will not be spending any money on another pair.
I have high arches and need a lot of cushion for my runs. With my custom insoles inserted , these are the best running shoes I have tried on so far . So plush and great ventilation for long runs. my feet never feel hot or sweaty, even after a 1/2 marathon. So far I have ran 3 races in these shoes and i can always hashtag #PR in my race photos. hahaha. Yes, They are a little more narrow compared to nikes, but i feel like the snug gives my foot extra support. My foot doesnt' feel like its sliding around in my shoes when I run; it stays in place comfortably. A big plus about these shoes is that even after 250 miles, they still look GREAT! it retains its shape so nicely. from afar, they look brand new still and I like how the dirt wipes off easily (I have black shoes so idk about the white boosts). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for beginner runners, averaging 15-20 miles a week , or running 1/2 marathons.
I'll make a few comparisons with the Adipure 360.3, even though that's a trainer instead of a runner. Bear with me, please. Pros: 1. Having a full-length Boost sole in a running shoe is luxurious. It's very cushy and bouncy, yet extremely flexible. I'm a mid/forefoot striker, but in these shoes I can easily shift to rear-foot striking if I need to—and my heels don't scream at me in protest. 2. The bevel in the Boost sole seems to stabilize the shoe a bit: I can do single-leg deadlifts in this shoe, as long as I don't shift all my weight too far to the front of my foot. I don't really recommend these shoes for single-leg activities, as they're definitely runners—but I'm pleasantly surprised I'm not all wobbly while balancing in them. (If you've ever tried to balance like that in a pair of Pure Boosts, you know what I mean.) 3. The upper is stretchy and very breathable. I wore these sockless for 10 minutes on a treadmill, and there was a noticeable breeze running across the top of my feet. 4. As with the Adipure, I love the bootie construction. No detached tongue to fuss with, and I get full lace burn protection. 5. The outsole is grippy. Right out of the box, the outsole was actually too grippy. It sounded like I was walking across a sticky movie theater floor. 20 minutes of walking/running in place on carpet and a yoga mat solved that. Cons: 1. Sizing runs long. I wear an 8 in the Adipure, with a comfy half inch gap between the tip of my big toe and the interior front of the shoe. In the Ultra Boost size 8, that gap's a full inch long. I'll try a 7.5 soon. I bought the 8 instead because I thought the smaller size might be too narrow. 2. The plastic lacing system is a rigid cage that makes the shoe too tight on my wide left foot. (It doesn't aggravate my right foot at all.) I guess the thick plastic's meant to lock down the midfoot, since the fabric upper's so stretchy. But the cage is very unkind to wide feet. To fix that, I changed my lacing technique on the left shoe: I completely skip the 2nd holes, and lace the others in typical crisscross fashion. I also don't lace that shoe too tightly. This lets the second pair of plastic stripes skim my foot, while the other stripes provide support. It keeps the cage from digging hard into my foot. So far, it seems to work well. 3. My heels slide out a bit. That's partly due to the long sizing, I'm sure. But also, the Ultra Boost's collar is looser than the Adipure's—probably because the shoes don't use the same kind of fabric upper. (My heels never slip out of the Adipures.) And the heel counter isn't really locking me down. Wearing thicker socks doesn't help much. Hopefully a smaller size will make a difference. 4. I'm pretty sure the outsole won't last long, especially after seeing other people's photos of worn-down nubs. If I keep these shoes, I'll definitely have to rotate them with other pairs. If the smaller 7.5 size resolves two of those cons, I'll happily keep 'em.
Well, the name says it all....ULTRA BOOST! This ULTRA BOOST shoe gives me perfect feet. I have been running for years and I think I've tried every shoe out there. This shoe is AMAZING! Right out of the box it's beautiful and you can go for a long distance run right away. The ride is smooth and forgiving. I will never run in anything else......ever. The ULTRA BOOST is like no other. I can really enjoy my runs now without having to think about my feet. I can concentrate on true running form without having to think about having to change my running form due to wearing ill-fitting shoes. I will never ever bewithout the ULTRA BOOST. I buy three at a time so that I will have a new pair readily available. This running shoe is like a slipper. It envelops your foot in a cloud of stability and protection. I could sleep in it. LOL! It's that darn AWESOME! ADIDAS ULTRA BOOST ROCKS!
Adidas constantly feeds into my addiction to their apparel and insanely cute and comfortable shoes. Ordered these in three colors. Feels like I'm walking on a cloud, and they fit perfectly snug around my feet for insanely comfortable support. WORTH THE PRICE
I've been running for 15 years and have gone through A LOT of shoes. The rep came to our running group and let us try them out on a run. I was instantly in love with how flexible and comfty these shoes were. Zero breakin time. The price is really high compared to my previous shoes but I've never worn and loved a pair so much. I put 20-25 miles on them for 6 months. They probably would last longer if I'd rotated them but that is how comfortable they are - I didn't want to wear my other shoes. Perfect for long distances like halfs or above. The orange is also a pretty soft neon and not the bland looking peach color like in the picture. Glad to have color choices other than pink and purple and gaudy color combos. Classy shoe!
By far the best running also everyday shoe ive had in so long. I was so surprised on how comfortable the shoe really was! it literally molds to your foot after a couple wears. i would recommend this shoe to anyone that likes being comfortable! i now own 3 pairs. keep killing it adidas! @flipp
I bought these as a present for my friend and she really likes them - in fact she says it's like running on air. She normally wears a size 3 but I'd heard from other reviews that they run small so ordered a 3.5 which proved wise. She says they're slightly narrow though.
I am now on my third model of Adidas boost range. I have suffered from shin splints but since changing, my sore shins have almost gone. Great shoe for both training and racing in. Major issue for me is the sole, my first pair wore out in less than 200 miles in 3 months!!! My second pair is doing the same!!! Please Adidas sort this out and then this show becomes excellent but at this price we should not have a sole issue.
At first I thought the upper part of the ultras were a little tight but after a couple of wears it somehow morphed to the perfect fit. These were a great purchase for me! Can't wait until more colors come out.
I have been a fan of Boost since the very first pairs were launched. I heard about them on Marathon Talk podcast and Haile was promoting them. I have since purchased in excess of 10 pairs and have converted 5 people to wearing them. The Ultra Boost are the best yet! They combine the best features of the first Boost and upped their game. The wider toe box and light weight upper plus the extra Boosting is th reason I'll be wearing these at Boston.
Having bought Boost trainers to run the marathon last year and liked the fit and comfort thought I would buy the updated version for this year. Ran 21 miles with them today and they feel good. Feel I can trust them on the big day!
I got a pair for myself and my wife. my wife loves the comfort and feeling of the ultra boost. She strongly encourages you buy a pair. I love mine. Best shoe I have ever worn. they are on different level.
I bought the first Boost when Runners World raved about it a few years ago. I had just come off a stress fracture of my 2nd metatarsal and I have been sold on them since then due to the extremely flexible mesh upper. I also have a bunion at the big toe joint so Boosts are the only shoes that are comfortable for even the shortest distance. I am always concerned about the changes in the shoes when "upgrades" come out but I cannot tell you how fantastic these shoes are. I just took them out for a 10 mile pavement run and my legs and feet felt great. I have never felt that good in a shoe right out of the box. The sole is completely different and it in addition to the even stretchier mesh upper makes this by far the most comfortable shoe I have ever purchased. I log 15 - 20 miles a week and am 5'4" 140 lbs. Adidas - please make a Boost trail shoe!
Well as a novice runner I've waited patiently to purchase a pair of these. I can't believe how instantly comfortable they felt and I happily bounced along the road. Two PBs this week they are certainly boosting my running.
I was very wary of buying these as I thought the hype would be more than the actually product but my word they are anazing! My feet feel so comfortable and ive managed to run further and faster than I have in a long time. I'm right on track now for my first marathon
I have had some Achilles problems over the last few years but so far after a few weeks of running in these shoes I have a spring back in my step and no soreness ... Long may it continue ... Finally I seem to have found a shoe that I can run in. Thank you Adidas
I have been eagerly waiting for them to arrive to Cyprus. I bought them a week ago and have performed 3 runs so far about 10km each. I have an issue with my feet , they tend to give me sharp burning pains when the shoes are not right. I experienced this pain in my first run but I think it was only because I was not used to them. The boost is unbelievable, I have improved my time and I cant wait for the Limassol marathon end of March!! Love them!!!!
I wore a 9.5 in the first boost. The 9 fits perfectly in the ultra so I would say true to size. One very short run but they were soft and responsive. So far they have exceeded my expectations and they were pretty high.
These really are amazing shoes. I have an older version of these shoes that I bought a few months ago, the power boosts and when I run in them I really feel the push they give you and the comfort overall. It kind of feels like you're walking on air and you truly want to run because of comfortable the shoes are. I cannot wait to buy at least another pair!
This sneaker is very comfortable, nice and lightweight with some cushion when you run. The second run i wore this on i ran into some wet sidewalks and the stability was nice, no slipping here! I have a wide foot, so it feels a little snug in the middle. LOVE the breathability- the front is a little loose due to the mesh but it did not affect my run.
I have been a fan of the "boost" from the beginning. Adidas has put it all together in this shoe.!! I had to remind myself that I could return them if they were not perfect because of the heavy price. 3 weeks in, with more than 60 miles on them, I am contemplating a 2nd pair. The fit is great; flexible yet sturdy enough to know you can train in them for the long haul... If you like the boost technology, this one is the best!! THANK YOU ADIDAS.
I love the feel of the upper, so soft and comfortable like a slipper. The cushioning is great as well. I definitely feel more than the Energy Boost. My only disappointment ( as mentioned by others) is that the sole shows wear early. I have about 30 miles on mine and already some of the nubs have worn down. For a running shoe in this price range I would not have expected this. The cushioning many last 100s of miles but I doubt the sole will.
There's definitely a spring about these shoes. They feel great on the roads. I wear them with orthotics, and tried them with and without. There was no perceptible difference in the spring back even with the orthotics. Have bought 2 pairs.
