adidas Running shoes
Feel the energy return in every step of your run with a pair of adidas running trainers, featuring the technologies you need.
Everyone is different. Every run is different. Find the trainer that fits you best. adidas offers a wide variety of models, with different technologies to support your needs. So whether you run stable or pronate, adidas has the right running shoe for you.
Boost™ cushioning technology in the midsole provides a higher energy return than regular EVA material. Springblade™ running trainers propel you forward with explosive energy through elastic blades at the bottom of the shoe. Both technologies give you a high energy return so you can last longer and go faster.
All running trainers are equipped with technologies to allow your feet to move naturally and freely, without compromising on stability. Like the TORSION® SYSTEM, a bar located at the bottom of the shoe, connecting heel and forefoot. Or FORMOTION® that allows your heels to move independently for a smoother landing.
The different running models are equipped with engineered forefoot and uppers made of breathable materials like mesh, primeknit or Techfit®.
Get ready for a great run with adidas running shoes.
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!
Got a pair of these today, and am very pleased with them. I bought these as my first pair of Adidas running shoes, and to tide me over until I get some custom Supernova Glide Boosts made. They are a nice snug fit and give great support around the mid foot. They also seem to weigh about half as much as my generic trainers I was previously running in, and are far more comfortable. A nice little spring in the step too; they absorb impact very well to keep your feet comfy on a run. Had to go half a size bigger than some other Adidas lines to find the correct fit length wise, but can't fault them for this. Great little running shoes, and very affordable. ABSOLUTE BARGAIN! :)
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.
I don't typically reach out to a company to tell them how I feel about their product unless I have a poor experience with them. Due to how awesome these things are, I felt compelled to contact you about my experience, which has been nothing short of revolutionary. Profile: 42 M Runner for 4 years. 30-40 miles a week, completed marathon. Run half marathon distance most every weekend. I have run in Brooks Glycerin for a couple of years now and have been pretty happy. I moved to them after starting with Mizuno Wave Rider after experiencing a lot of pain in my knees that just didn’t go away. An acquaintance of mine recommended Adidas Boost. I researched them a bit before taking the plunge. I am VERY happy with them. Actually, I am ecstatic! I’ve run in them for 3 weeks now and the claims made are all legit. I rarely run 3 days in a row due to fatigue and soreness in knees, hips, and hamstring. I get none of that with these. I feel like I am being propelled while I run. The cushioning is superb; so much so that I almost feel like I am cheating when I run. They give me an advantage and I run a lot faster with them. During my regular runs during the week I go about 7-9 miles 3-4x a week before my longer run on the weekends. My pace is significantly faster. This may seem like a crazy claim, but it is absolutely true. I typically run at a 9:30 pace. I am averaging 8:40 – 8:45 on my runs now and am not pushing any harder than I did before. Additionally, the soreness I would typically get upon completion is not there. It is simply amazing! I am 100% sold on these shoes and will never be going back to the Glycerin. The difference isn’t small; it is significant. The shoes are especially helpful on the hills. Before I would slow to a snail’s pace on hills to conserve energy required to climb. When you strike on your heal in these things, you get a great bounce and will use much less energy than before. It is awesome. I feel like a fine tuned machine running in the Boost and enjoy my runs more due to less fatigue, less soreness/pain, more cushioning, and faster times. I feel sorry for neutral runners who have not discovered these shoes. I expect to improve my marathon time significantly and avoid the “bonk” in the later miles I experienced in my last marathon. These are expensive shoes, but I would gladly pay double what the Glycerin cost based on their performance and my experience with them thusfar. If my former self as a Glycerin user ran against me now, he wouldn’t stand a chance of keeping up. The only drawbacks to the shoe that I see: 1) They are narrow. I have narrow feet, so that is fine, but they will fit snug for someone that doesn’t have narrow feet. 2) Lacing them up is different than Brooks; it takes a little more work due to the way it is designed. 3) The tongue isn’t long enough. When lacing them up, you have to be sure to get the laces over the tongue, which tends to slide under the laces. 4) Toe box isn’t very roomy. I do miss that about the Glycerin. I hope this is a modification they make in the future. These drawbacks are minor and the only one that I really would like see changed in the toebox. Outside of that, the ride of this shoe is superb. If you are a neutral runner, I would 1000% recommend these shoes. I was a little hesitant at first given that Adidas isn’t exactly known for their distance running gear, but man was I wrong! You will feel more refreshed, have better endurance and less pain. You will not regret trying these shoes. Absolutely revolutionary as far as I am concerned.
I got a pair of these from my company as part of a promotion and had to sign up to do a half marathon in them (my first ever), I had been for months trying to go from padding to zero drop and minimal cushioning as I felt shoes with cushioning had contributed to my plantar fasciitis. So I was understandably disappointed and concerned when I had to start training in these. First impressions after I started was that surprising amount of bounce back I got, going from minimal to cushioned, this was to be expected, however the shoe did not feel heavy at the heel at all and since I strike at the mid-foot, it made running a lot easier. Fast forward a marathon, 2 half marathons and plenty of 10k plus runs, I tried running without these shoes and my time was noticeably worse! I was running almost 1KMPH slower without these shoes, this may just be in my head, however I run with different shoes and I use the same app on my phone to time all my runs. I train in the city and it's all concrete, maybe that has something to do with why cushioning helps? The only issue I have is because of the heel-to-toe drop on these shoes, I don't feel they are any good for weight training, especially if you're lifting heavy weights while standing. You can wear them casually, you can wear them to run, but I feel they don't make good weight training shoes (they are running shoes and not cross trainers after all). I have to say I am thoroughly impresses especially since my plantar fasciitis has not bothered me at all with these shoes and it would normally flare up 2-3KM into a run with shoes that don't agree with me. I would highly recommend this shoe and I plan to purchase a pair for next years races! Maybe I'll try something different from the boost range!
It is hard to decide which shoe is better, the Glide Boost 6's, or the Sequence 7's. The unsung hero of both models is the breathable mesh. The mesh is great for longer runs and is very comfortable. The reason why the Sequence 7's are so good is because they are great stability shoes. They do what they are designed to do. They are not as cushy as the Glide Boosts, but they promote a smoother ride for overpronators. Once you get going, the cushion is where it needs to be. I bought the black/infrared pair and fell in love, but once Adidas released the navy blue, that was right down my alley! For those that were expecting a bouncier step, I would recommend the Energy Boosts (for skinnier feet) or the Adistar Boosts (for anyone). The Adistar Boosts covers the most range of applications. If you're looking for a relatively light stability trainer, get the Sequence 7's. Adidas has definitely improved upon the mistakes they made with the Sequence 6's.
This is the first time I have ever run in a pair of Adidas running shoes. I wish I had purchased a pair sooner ! The Supernova Glide Boost technology is by no means a gimmick, they do exactly what they say on the tin. I have ran 15 miles in these and whilst running through fields and country lanes as well as the road, the continental grip is superb even in wet conditions. I would gladly recommended these shoes to anyone looking for a pair of reliable, light and supportive running shoes. Looking forward to the next edition.
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 have owned 2 pairs of the Energy Boosts and LOVED these shoes as hands down the best and most durable neutral trainers I've found. I wanted to get a distance racing or tempo shoe with Boost, but wanted just a little more cushion than the Adios. Along comes the Boston 5 , and I was definitely not disappointed by this shoe. It's got a lighter, firmer and slightly lower to the ground feel than the Energy Boost, but is not lacking in cushioning whatsoever with distance up to 15 miles so far. As I said, great addition!
I originally purchased this shoe in Solar Red. Let me tell you. There is no red in that shoe. It's pink. Hot pink. My 4 1/2 y/o son said "Daddy, why did you buy pink shoes?". So, if a child thinks its pink...its pink. HOWEVER, after returning those and getting the Black/White pair, the shoes have been fantastic running in. I've put about 50 miles in them so far and they are holding up great and really have a great energy return, especially as you increase your pace. They are light and wrap your foot rather well. As others have pointed out, they do feel pretty tight. I wear a size 15 shoe and this is borderline too small for me and unfortunately they don't make a size 16. However, my feet aren't moving around in the shoe thus not causing blisters, so that is a plus. The only downside that I've seen so far is there is little traction on any wet surface.
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.
In short: the Boost Seq7 runs like a lighter weight motion control shoe. Very secure and not very cushioned. I've run in the Seq7 4 times since getting them 2 weeks ago. I also run in pairs of Seq6 and Seq5. The Seq7 is the lightest, and best fitting, but LEAST cushioned of these. Adidas has dropped the weight big-time from the Seq5 and fixed the sloppy/loose heel issue with the Seq6 but the switch from Adiprene+ to Boost makes the shoe LESS cushioned underfoot. As a larger runner, I was hoping for just the opposite.
