the color of the light was great, and it actually has two different settings of light. I put it on my bag when I hv to walk home from work at night. very comfortable to wear on wrist as well. the only problem is.. Im not sure how to change the battery........
These are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever worn, so much so that these are my 3rd pair!! I have narrow feet and so these fit me perfectly with no need for additional footbeds etc. Having owned 2 other pairs I also knew to go 1/2 size up from my normal shoe size. The wear levels are good also, I have a gear tracker on my fitness App and did 680KM in my last pair of Ultra Boost. Would highly recommend these to anyone.
I have a pair of the previous variation of the Supernova 5-inch shorts, back when they made them under the Climacool design. The original Climacool Supernovas are perfect and better than these newer ones: better material, better design, better colours. Don't get me wrong, these newer Supernovas are good, and fit pretty much the same. It's just a difference in materials and style. They have a liner which fits not too tight, a tiny zip pocket that fits a few coins or a key, and reflective material on the sides and butt. The black is more jet and shiny than matte and grey-black.
I'm a chinese guy, 27years old. I should say this pair of shoe is just owesome. Soft, light, breathable,don't slide running in the rain. And It looks so cool. Nice shoe for spring,summer,autumn.Definitly 5stars, I'll give a 10 if I may.
first off, really fast delivery. ordered it on a Thursday evening and got the shoes delivered to me on a Monday. in terms of the shoes, as many of the reviews mention, the insoles don't want to stay in tact. it slips and slides when trying to put your feet in and slips out when you take the shoes off. the style is a 5/5 though. super light and breathable. however, not suitable in vancouver rain weather!
I've had Adidas Adizero runners going back over a number of years now, from Adizero Pro, Feathers, Adios etc. To me they represent the best in design while integrating a range of innovative but tested Adidas technologies. (If you are curious about the integrity with which the shoes are initially designed, look up a documentary by Adidas/SIZE called Mr. Omori. It can be found online.) Now, in my opinion, these particular shoes represent, at this time, the ultimate culmination in running shoe technology at the present time for a mid-distance (ca. 10K) minimal racing flat. If you are deciding to go minimal you've probably already weighed the pros and cons of that philosophy so I won't go into that. Ok, so from the bottom up: The outsole of the shoe is comprised of a ring of Continental rubber (a company known for their high quality tires) around a bunch of funny looking dots. These dots are small, street-and-track-suitable 'cleats', the result of affixing pieces of plasticized rubber onto softer rubber onto foam. They offer good traction on softer surfaces yet are remarkably durable for prolonged use on concrete, much to my surprise. At the very back a decoupled heel to more flexibly absorb heelstrikes. Through the arch there is a symmetrical torsion 'bar', which allows the heel and forefoot to move independently while remaining stable. The midsole is, through the heel and arch a layer of sturdy yet absorbing adiprene; in the forefoot, a layer of adiprene and Boost material. Boost is a bouncy material which, in my opinion, is meant to simulate a synthetic track on your foot. It is very soft and can be unstable, but the subtle use here offers its benefits--ultra-light, soft and springy--without its flaws. The upper is an ultra-light mesh with reinforcing materials at toe, mid-foot and heel--seems to me like a synthetic suede similar to what I have encountered on Adidas boxing shoes. This 'suede' is light-weight and much more durable than it would seem. The heel has a very secure, wrap around plastic insert to help with stability. All of these technologies, already proven in other shoes, along with their subtle and thoughtful implementation, for me make these shoes the ideal lightweight flat for track and street. As for size, I have a wide foot, almost always wear a 9.5US in Adidas (I can fit snugly in a 9 or loosely in a 10 as well) and these are no different. They do seem slightly, maybe a 1/8" smaller than others like a Boston 5; the way in which the upper is laid out, however, allows for the foot to stretch through mesh via various accommodations. Also, they look great. Thanks for reading.
I just realized that my favorite running shorts were some 10 year old Adidas supernovas. These response shorts are a cool complement, same fit as my old shorts, same color, and with the three lines in the back as a bonus. I rarely train with a water belt so the pocket is perfect for that gel or two on my 20k+ long runs.
Having previously had the original boost trainers which i got on very well with but wore them out!. I was looking for something similar and these ultra boosts are the next step up. The bounce back from road impact was very good and the sock fit feels secure around your ankles but still have freedom within the foot area. normally i would go for a short run out in a new pair of trainers but did a 10mile great south run in them and they felt great. oh and the bright yellow edition is eye catching
These shoes are very comfortable, the first time you wear you feel like you are walking on air. The style is great, however the boost material gets dirty very easily and is next to impossible to clean.
I have owned Adidas shoes in the past and they generally tore my feet to shreds so I gave the brand a very wide berth until I took a chance on these shoes. I've run over 700km in these shoes and they are still in great condition and are not giving me any problems at all. When I first used the shoes the rubber soles were a bit slippery on the pavement, but after about 50km of running this problem disappeared. I used them during a half marathon which was carried out over roads and bush trails, during a heavy storm. Tracks were flooded, all surfaces were wet, trees had been blown down, and everything i was wearing got soaked. Apart from one very slippery section (clay downhill), the shoes performed very well and remained comparatively light. I highly recommend these shoes
The Ultra Boost is truly revolutionary. The combination of the primeknit upper and the boost sole make the shoe so comfortable and the design is so versatile it works with a lot of outfits. Highly recommend this product!
Perfect trainer for everyone. If you have narrow feet then the trainers are true to size (tts) or if you have wide feet then go half a size up for the perfect fit. Don't worry if they're tight at first because they stretch to the mould of you foot.
Adidas is my favourite and preferred sports clothing brand, 99% of my sports gear is Adidas and this is possibly my favourite purchase yet! Perfect fit, so comfortable and looks great! I would highly recommend this product to everyone really you will not be disappointed! Already looking at more products!
These shoes have a thick layer of the firm, yet protective, mid-sole of Adidas non-boost running shoes. In that aspect, I like them as much as a pair of SuperNovas I have. The upper is of lesser quality than the SuperNovas, though. The Adidas stripes, and all the gadgets on the upper are sewn on, and I can feel the stitches inside the shoe when I touch with my fingers. This has not bothered me on my runs yet, though. But still, overall, the inside of the shoe and the upper are of lesser quality than the SuperNovas. But they also cost less, so I am not complaining.
Just finished a run in these, and they fly. Fast but with a bid of support, nice feel and traction on some wet surfaces. Only complaint is they fit 1/4 size smaller than what I am used to. Ok for flat and uphills, but could be problems on downhill courses. May consider a 1/2 size up in the future, but overall pleased with these.
These shoes are like walking on clouds... Love them so much. Careful they do seem to run about a half or full size smaller than other shoes but i think this is typical with Adidas. I am usually an 11-11.5 and these fit perfect in 10.5. Like others mentioned the insoles pop up when you take them off but definitely not a problem for me when walking/running.
Shorts are great, fit as advertised, true to size. Lightweight, has some reflective material. Liner has good fit as well. Only thing I would add/change would be a small zip pocket on the back for a key and/or gel.
I saw these in the shop and thought nice! Tried them on and thought yes. Used them for leisure briefiy as they were too expensive to ruin. In terms of leisure, I found them weirdly tight fitting but unsecure on my feet i.e. sliding about whilst walking, and sweaty and damp socks / feet. In search of a PB in a 5k one morning, I decided to try them out and they were amazing. Designed for running in my opinion. Great traction, speed, security and very light. I will be wearing them for running only.
One of the best racing flats I've ever used. Normally would use the Adios, but this is a much more aggressive and ideal for racing rather than training. Works equally well for track sessions, mile reps and road running up to 10k. The black / white colour way makes this standard out as a really classy looking racer. Boost cushioning has only improved the takumi sen 3 over the 2 to just add that little bit of support. Grips well thanks to the continental rubber sole so fine to use in slippy conditions.
This is essentially a fleece rather than a Tee. Fits perfectly and keeps you incredibly warm. Would use this more as a long sleeve top to warm up in before a session or when the temperature really does drop.
I was on the look for something to keep the legs warm on the coming cold rides and this was a great addition to my bike gear. Although designed for running they slip right under a rain pant and remain breathable. Ankle zips are the best feature!
I have ran around 100km in these shoes so far and compared to the ultraboosts, they have more structure and support for a mid to forefoot striker. The sole also seems much more durable than the ultraboosts and they are significantly lighter.
These shoes are amazingly comfortable for running and everyday use however do not attempt sports in these shoes as they are not built to handle the decelerations and side to side movement involved in most sports. However, overall they are a great shoe and I have no complaints.
Although the outlook is not really impressive, but I think that the quality , exactly is the durability, is guaranteed for this kind of product. Compared to ultra boost, it's not as light as that ultra boost. But I still think the shoes will last long. Choose your right size, or just a little bit higher for fit.
I use them to referee soccer games. I have used them on wet & dry field turf, also on dry grass. If you are looking for a minimalist upper with a flexible sole, these are great. They are cushy when up on your toes sprinting and cushy for heel strikes. I've put about 60 miles on them with no discernible wear and less knee pain then my previous Nike shoes. Would love to see the "boost" used in a Samba-like shoe to play soccer in.
