The challenge for many runners in the past has been that they have to choose between soft and responsive cushioning. With this in mind, we wanted to think beyond that and reinvent the way cushioning performs.
While we were investigating a variety of materials, we discovered capsules which showed the property of being able to combine the performance benefits of soft and responsive cushioning. Quickly after we tested the first material samples we knew that the capsules had the potential to bring a whole new light to energy return and cushioning.
The challenge was to find a way to bind these capsules together in a midsole. We knew that if we could find a way to do so, we would have a game changer on our hands. And now, three years later, we are able to equip runners all over the world with a truly groundbreaking cushioning material that offers the highest energy return in the running industry.
When it comes to BOOST™, we are only getting started. We know the significance and impact this material will have for running and beyond, and we will treat it accordingly.

by Marymid very disappointed
Yes the cushioning is great, unfortunately the mesh fabric isn't. I've had these for a month and the fabric is worn away already! Redesign the upper to be fit for purpose and they would be worth another go.

Very light weight, like floating, super light on top of feet, fresh, love the black color. Wishing it comes in nicer colors, want another pair but not to happy with the Barney purple color or the blue. Wish the colors for woman came as nicer as the guys running shoes.
Congrats Adidas !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 Bouncy indeed!
Excellent support In the overall Foot strike. They minimize impact on every surface taking pressure off knees and ankles. Great Breathable technology. I wish the colors were a bit more fun but overall it's an excellent shoe. Always remember to buy half a size bigger for a more comfortable fit .

Rated 5 out of 5 by AGRAY BEST....SHOES.....EVER!
I run, on average, 15-20 miles per week. I am pretty neutral when it comes to pronation, but tend to have a heavy heel strike. I'm also recovering from peronial tendonitis. These shoes are awesome! I ran road and trail this week with absolutely no pain. Adidas recommends ordering a size up for a traditional fit, but after trying my regular size (9) in the store and also a 9-1/2, I found that I actually like the snugness of the toe box in the size 9 with just a light sock liner. Super lightweight too. Feels like a minimalist shoe, but with cloud-like cushioning. I will buy 1 or 2 more of these in different colors for my rotation!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 miles in 19:40 I set records in these shoes
These shoes are so light, but yet provide a lot of cushion and support. It feels like running on a cloud. My first time running in these shoes I cut 7 seconds off my previous record pace. The yellow shows dirty easily though.I have issues with my right foot falling asleep when I run and these shoes haven't helped with that issue.

I purchased these as a gift for my best friend and Adidas-ophile and was disappointed that despite purchasing as half size larger they were still tighter than any other Adidas shoe she owned. I know the shoes are rated well and are likely great shoes but it is immensely frustrating to not have accurate sizing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wonky Started out great but....
I initially loved the feel of the shoes and couldn't wait to try them out. Unfortunately about a mile in to my run, I started to develop a terrible blister on the backs of both my feet. I tried them a couple more times and was never able to be comfortable in them. The problem for my feet is that the back is to high. I returned them for another pair of less expensive Adidas and am totally happy with them.

Very impressed with the Adidas Energy Boost shoes. Many orthopedic surgeries and this great footwear make walking enjoyable. Standing, shopping, running errands, and thinking of walking as enjoyable are now possible.
Bought a full size larger than usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xcrunner813 Wow.
I run 30-40 miles per week and run xc and track. I previously wore traditional running shoes for as long as I can remember, but I wanted to try something new because I didn't like how stiff and heavy the usual "trainer" was, but without compromising quality and substance. After doing a lot of research on the lasting aspect of the boost and it's quality (unlike other "foam" materials that break down very easily), I ordered mine online. Definitely agree with the order half size up. It's been over two months and all I can say is I'm amazed! These shoes offer great stability with the perfect amount of comfort. Probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn both while running and just walking around. The new fabric material allows it to fit like a glove in all the right places (I have a narrow foot) while allowing it to breathe surprisingly well. Also, the new boost material isn't as squishy as I expected. It provides an appropriate spring back, which is slight, but not excessive.
