I need a good support sneaker due to a knee injury. This was recommended by a running store but I'm now not sure that I got the right sneaker! I remember trying on one style and the heel was too loose. The other was just right. Well, guess what! I think I got the wrong shoe because my sock slipped down and my heel slipped up. The next time I wore a different, thicker, pair of socks and it was OK. However, the rest of the sneaker was comfortably snug. I did not purchase the in-store sneaker because I need neutral colors. They said to order direct because they could not get the color I wanted.(PLEASE make good sneakers in colors that can be used as a dress shoe!) For the cost, I'm rating this an average sneaker.
I've had a few pairs of these shoes and they are the only running shoe I can wear. I have bad knees and very little natural cushioning on the balls of my feet. These shoes have great support and the most cushioning of any other shoe I've tried--and I've tried several. I thought I was going to need to give up running before I found these. My only complaint--the colors aren't the greatest. My current ones are an ugly khaki color and aqua. Grey and aqua would have been so much better! I'm usually not thrilled with the color selection, but I wear them anyway because they feel so good.
This is my second pair of Boost shoes and I will never stray! Less hamstring pain and great for road running. The toe box is a bit wide for my narrow feet, but I get less toe issues, so that must be good. I have some foot issues with pinched nerves and the extra cushioning helps with that. Agree with others that this is a running shoe, not designed for a P90X plyo workout, does not handle side to side movement well.
Really comfortable and attractive shoe. It was too tight on the top of my foot (and you can't adjust because it's all one piece). Otherwise they felt great. If that wasn't an issue I would give it a five star and order other colors. I haven't bern able to find a different brand that was as comfortable.
These are seriously the most AMAZING shoes to ever grace my feet. I was having some pretty bad knee pain when I was running, so I went to a specialty running store and got a gait analysis done (which I highly recommend and is usually free), and after trying on many other shoes, I was amazed when I put these on. They are light, breathe extremely well, provide awesome support while maintaining good flexibility, and they come in more neutral colors than some of the more ostentatious colors by other brands. I can't say enough about them! The price can be a little shocking, but the guy at the running store told me that because of their high quality build, they last for 500-600 miles per pair, instead of the usual 300-400 in other shoes. They are worth every penny. My husband and I now both own a pair, and they have been great to us for over 6 months now.
I am a retired semi elite 10km runner (but I still run seriously without racing). I've been running in saucony guide and their predecessors for twenty years. They recently changed it so majorly I can't wear them anymore. I've been struggling ever since to find "my" shoe. I've tried all sorts of models of asics, saucony, Nike, brooks, etc., and none of them were right. I finally tried Adidas boost and was pleasantly surprised at the cushioning and especially their durability. I later bought a pair of Adistar boost and their superiority was apparent immediately. They offer far more cushioning, especially in the heel, than almost all the other brands I've tried (and more than the regular boost), a necessity for the mountainous terrain I run on. Yet the Adistar achieves this without adding weight or compromising durability, the two problems often associated with extra heel cushioning. The divided heel section is brilliant, offering superior cushioning during the initial heel strike. It also provides the smoothest heel to forefoot transition of any shoe I've run in for the last twenty years. This makes it a quick shoe. The easy transition also means it limits runners fatigue, as you're not labouring through each stride but transitioning quickly. You can run a lot further in them for the same amount of every expenditure. Another awesome feature is the continental rubber on the outsole. These shoes last a long time in both the outer and midsole. They outlast other running shoes by an extra 25-50% distance. This makes them well worth the price. The only thing I wish was different was more traction. Half of what I run are mountain trails, and these are really designed for road use only.
This is my second pair of Adidas Boost Shoes. These shoes are so comfortable. When running they feel like air and are very bouncy. Makes running easier. Very comfortable with good support. True to size. It's worth the money.
I have been waiting for these running shoes and they are worth the wait. I love the Adistar shoe and the Boost energy heel is amazing. I am used to Adidas running shoes so I am accustomed to their fit. I do not find them to be shoes that run small or a tight. These are phenomenal shoes that help with my slight pronating issue and very high arch. The Adistar shoes are good, sturdy light weight shoes. I have to agree that the black and bright pink look a bit "young" for my age....but I could learn to live with the colour. Excellent shoe!
I wanted a shoe for walking and standing long hours and the on-line advisor suggested the Energy Boost shoe. I chose the Adistar because it helps with pronating. I had to go from my normal size 10 to an 11, but it fits perfectly. I have tried both available colours and I don't like either. So I'm sending back and waiting for Adidas to produce them in a different color range. I tried the men's Adistar ESM Boost, too, because I like the color better. Unfortunately they are just not fitting me right. Disappointed!
