micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I did 3 runs with the Ultra boost so far. The first was a 12k in which I set a new personal best without even trying to run fast. The second was a 12k I ran at a pace of 5 minutes per k ( 8 minutes mile) and my heart reate was way lower than normal at that speed. Today i did a 26k run and the pace was good. The shoe fits well. After having run only 50k with these shoes, I find that the wear is excessive. Some of the nobs are already completely gone. Compared with the other boost shoes I've had the wear is excessive. That's the only issue I have with this shoe. If Adidas can fix the wear issue, they have a real winner here. For the price they cost, this will turn out to be an expensive shoe, because i don't see myself getting the same mileage out of these shoes.
I have done three runs in these shoes a five mile, seven mile then on Saturday nineteen miles - Shoes are really nicely cushioned. I went down by half a size from original adidas boost. I bought two pairs 10.5 and 11 and took them on and off so better than buying from a running shop to dither but these are better to be close fitting. Bit heavier and less speedy than previous models. I had a sore toe before the run due to a black nail but ran for 3 hours and it was fine. The uppers are great. Lovely cushioning great for my sore Achilles and no problems after 19 mile long run so fantastic for a marathon. But .... the outsole is worn after just 30 miles - the pimples are down to nothing - is the rubber too soft - I'm concerned they wont last 100 miles. I have attached photo which shows some of the slightly worn pimples and some have worn to be flat - is this a major flaw if so adidas will get a lot of returns
A couple of things to mention, I love the Energy Boost, I love the Adios Boost. One of the things I love about Energy Boost is that first 200 meters when you set off and it feels like you are just floating compared to other shoes. When I saw the release of the Ultra Boost and the opportunity to place a pre-release order I knew I would buy them. Have run a couple of times in them now, 7mi and 8mi. Today was a 6'49" steady run. First thing was early pace surprised me, started up a big hill and Ultra Boosts made sub 7 uphill feel relatively easy. Boosts seem to suit my stride as in them it really flows and feels very smooth, U Boosts are no different in this respect. Have also found them better than Energy Boost at minimising soreness after the run. E Boosts were good in this respect but U Boost seems even better. The shoe feels totally neutral, even more so than the E Boost. Today was a light mist and ground slightly greasy, but grip of new Boosts was never really in question. As is mentioned in the PR materials, the upper is really special. It literally does fit like a glove. In E Boost I went a 1/2 size up to UK11, but in U Boost 10.5 fits me perfectly. Due mainly to the stretch of the Primeknit. I think the 1/2 size up would have been too big for me. In Adios Boost I also take 10.5, so if you have Adios Boost the same size in U Boost is fine. I guess looks are a personal preference, but my last E Boosts were Black with red inner, so for me the initial release of U Boost in Black with the blue heel cup would be my first choice in any case. They do look really nice! To summarise, I am really happy with the shoe so far, it feels fast, protects my legs even better than E Boost, fits like a glove, grips really well and looks better than the other 19 or so shoes in my collection!
I have owned every Adios version and colour since tthe begining which was the yellow and black worn by Halie Gebrselassie............this latest shoe has all the ingredients of being the ultimate runners dream flat. Adidas have nailed it with this latest iiretation of the Adios. Old meets new. Amazing fit, down to the new shoe laces which have an elastic feel. The boost just tops it all of. Please Adidas don't change this shoe. You have got the right formulation now. All we need are more colours. "Immosibble is nothing" in the new Adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2. Expect to break your PB's I have...
First, this shoe is amazing. Im an ex-collegiate T&F athlete with a neutral gate and forefoot-midfoot runner. I'm approx 200lbs, and need a cushioned ride. I've been looking forever for a shoe with enough fore-mid foot cushioning for the heavier, neutral runner and I feel as though everything is focused on Heel cushioning these days but this is amazing for the mid-forefoot striker! Extremely cushioned and soft yet responsive, feels great on the foot, needed two days to break the shoe in, and no injuries since I've had them. You don't want to take these babies off, believe the hype. I almost missed out on a great shoe.
Quality shoe, lightweight and... The ultimate in cushioning... Boost is the BOMB!!!!
Pure Boost 2.0's? It is pure perfection. I have bought and worn many many shoes. I have owned the Nike Roshe's and worn them out. I wanted a new casual but comfortable shoe to wear on an everyday basis. Light and comfortable are understatements for this Adidas shoe. You barely notice you are wearing a shoe and as soon as you take a step, it feels as if there is a cloud under your foot. For a littler more money, I would definitely buy the Pure Boost 2.0's over the Roshe's. Due to Adidas trying to reduce the weight as much as possible, there is not much lateral stability. I wouldn't recommed running in these. (These should be in the Casual section) The Boost Cushioning is phenomenal. The upper is breathable and lightweight. Definitely order these. (I received mine in about 2/3 business days even with the basic free shipping, great service)
The Pure Boost is the most comfortable pair of shoes i've ever worn. The boost feels incredible and upper just feels like i'm wearing a pair of slippers. Without the torsion system the boost is incredibly flexible and this helps a lot in making the shoe as comfortable as it is. The only thing that i would change is to add a couple more lace holes.
I just finished my first 10-mile CRIM following about 12 miles of break-in on these shoes. I ordered a half-size above dress-shoe size, as recommended, but the fit is still quite snug, making them a little tricky to get my wider feet into. Bottom Line; during the 10-mile race, I never even noticed that I had shoes on my feet. I have zero frontal shin pain as I've experienced with other shoes. No foot pain whatsoever. These are perfect for the mid-to-heel striker. Light, cool, a great street-racing shoe. I have found shoe love once again.
i really enjoy the boost technology !!! these are good for me because they almost have a 0 drop and since I am a mid-foot strike runner , my natural stride feels really comfortable and with the boost this shoe feels really good, this model is great for my style. I wish the toe box would be bit wider, but the shoe body mesh is incredible and it is super comfortable on the foot and toes. I really like how the shoe hugs around the heel and bottom part of the ankle and the body of the shoe hugs well around the foot, so no slipping . I wonder how they'll fair at track practice, maybe that will be another review.
I'm a huge fan of the Adios series, having owned each variation over the years. I enjoyed the Boost after getting used to the new springy sole over 30 or so miles. The Boost 2 is more of the same good stuff that was introduce by the Boost. The improvements are that the build quality of the 'pure' Adios line is apparent - gone are the plastics which didn't quite work (and actually dug in to the top of my foot). I did think that the laces wouldn't stay tight as they're smoother than the grippy laces we're used to on this line - i was wrong, they work well. My only issue after 40 miles in these is that they instantly felt small on my foot. I've always worn an 11.5 in every iteration and this time things felt tight - my toes felt like they were right up against the end of the shoe. I thought it could just be the change in design and ran with it. After 3 runs it's slightly better but I clearly need to go up at least half a size. I recently got an end of line pair of Adios 2's and have no issue with the fit at 11.5. Please try them before you buy, or at least consider jumping up a half size.
ok, well i picked up a brand new pair of shoes for $160, first impressions were good, the look of them is amazing, i got the black ones because they look CRAZY!! they're the best shoes i have bought and without a doubt i would recommend them to a friend! they're comfortable like walking on pillows, although I would not recommend them for running, maybe grass and road running but no crazy stuff. the support is there, the comfort is there and the look is there. BUY THEM!! BOOST IS AMAZING!!!!!
Very light and helps your foot do its natural work without over support, no joint or leg shock and great rebound. Last year I competed in 5 half marathons and 2 full at age 61 and this is the best shoe yet - helped me get a first and 2 seconds in my age group in major west coast events.
The perfect running shoe: so light you almost feel barefoot. Continental rubber gives amazing traction. Boost is the best impact absorption material PERIOD. The shoe gets more comfortable to more often you run in it, as the insole forms to your foot. I like the lower heel to toe drop as well. Overall a better running stride for me, plus much better stability when doing high speed and intensity drills like 100s etc. Honestly my favorite purchase of any athletic product ever! You will love this shoe!!
Adidas missed a great opportunity with this shoe. Remember its $180. Woven upper and fit are great. Sockliner is cheap , poor quality for a $180 shoe. Midsole profile and road feel are flat. The added eva in other boost styles greatly improves the feel of the boost compound. Outsole wear is maybe the worst of any quality shoe Ive run in, visible abrasion and wear after one 5 mile run. Im not sure why they chose not to use the superior Continental rubber compound used in other models. Bottom line, Adidas cut corners , over priced an inferior product.
