I like the forefoot cushioning.

By Zhipeng

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

I like the forefoot cushioning of these shoes. The forefoot is actually softer than Energy Boost 3 due to the windows for accessing the boost. I like the ride. However, it caused me a little pain to the inner side of my right heel. Hopefully I can get use to them. By the way, the 2017 version (Supernova) is also great for me, although they are for sure very different from the Glide 8 . Probably because my past is slow (9-9.5 min/mile), the newer model does not slow me down as other people complained.

Love the boost mid sole, solid running shoe

By Russell

Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

A little background before I get into the review. I am 5' 10", weight 175 lbs and run about 20 miles a week on asphalt roads.

I bought this shoe because of the great reviews and I had run in the adidas energy boost 3, which hooked me on the boost mid sole. These shoes were comfortable right out of the box but for running I needed a small break in period, about 10 to 15 miles. I normally wear a size 11 but followed the Road Runner web site suggestion of going up a 1/2 size since this was my first pair. What I found was that the 11 1/2 was a little loose around the mid foot and the toe box is a little taller than I would have wanted. Normally I am a standard "D" width. After putting in over a 100 miles, still love the shoe and I have gotten use to the looser fit.

Recently bought another pair but 1/2 size smaller. The uppers, mid foot fit great and was what I was expecting with my first pair. So for me I didn't need to go up the 1/2 size as RR suggests.

Looking at how the outer sole is wearing and how well the boost is holding up I am thinking I could get at least 400 miles from these shoes.

The only con is when lacing up, the laces slide easily and I have to make sure I pull them tight enough.

    Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

    Possibly the best Glide ever even going back to when it was called the Supernova Cushion. Fit and feel is improved from version 7. Love this shoe for easy runs and long runs but you can also pick up the pace in this shoe. I've ran packed in dirt/gravel roads in this shoe and it excels on that surface as well as the road. Love the upper fit. Always thought the glide fit and felt better than the Energy and Ultra Boost.

    Perfect for midfoot strikers.

    By Ton

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

    I land with the outside of my mid- to fore-foot then transfer my weight towards the inside. Other shoes have out-sole that protrude out too much at the edge where I land. This extra protrusion forces my feet to shift my weight inward too abruptly when I land, making my mid- to fore-foot landing very noisy, bumpy, and throws off my strides. Addidas shaves off the material at the mid- to forefoot area, allowing a more controlled and smooth shifting of weight inward. The heel-to-toe is just right; allowing me to land mid- to forefoot without needing to raise my heels higher during landing. I can still feel the heels, but they do not get in the way of my mid- to forefoot landing. The mid-sole material is supportive without being mushy. And the the mid-sole material does bounce instead of just absorbing impact.

    better than the Glide 7

    By Tim

    Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

    great shoe, perfect blend of cushion..but not to "high" so as to roll an ankle..I use this for cross fit training and it holds up great. Had the Glide 7 and the vinyl on the side of the toe box seperted from the shoe and caused a flap of material to hang out..seems like the Glide 8 addressed that issue and the vinyl is much more secure around the toe box. very nice show

    By Joseph

    Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

    First off, I never write reviews so for me to write one means I really love the shoe. I had 3 pairs of the Glide Boost 7. I run mostly flat trails, streets and treadmills and have run 2 marathons and 3 halfs in the glide boost 7. When Adidas discontinued the 7 I was scared they would lose the essence of the shoe...but they nailed it with this one. The 8 is light and responsive but feels just a hair softer than the 7. I have 55 miles on this shoe and my knees and feet thank me for it. The only slight problem I have with the shoe is when the roads are a little wet they can feel slick...same goes for a sweaty treadmill. I wouldn't let that deter you though if you're interested in this shoe. Far and away better than any shoe I have tried including Nike and Asics.

      Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

      I had been running in Brooks Adrenalines for several years, but wanted to try a more neutral shoe. I must admit, I didn't like the Supernova Glide shoes at first. The fit seemed a bit off, and they got really hot on my feet. I found myself reaching for the old Adrenalines more often. But after the Supernovas broke in and shaped to my foot, they have been awesome! Nice fit now, and no more hot spots. The cushion and ride is much more plush than my old Brooks, without feeling mushy. A really nice ride. I haven't been this excited about a running shoe in a very long time. Recommended!

          Comments about Mens adidas Supernova Glide 8 Running Shoe:

          I put 14 mi in the last two days on these shoes. I ran Brooks and NB for a while, this is my first time running adidas. I usually wear between a 10.5 and 11, the 11 fit me fine. Toe box has ample room, but the arch area is a little tight for my average feet. By that I mean the laces end up pretty short after they're tied up. The upper has absolutely no seams to rub anywhere and pretty much fit like a glove. This is a sturdy shoe on the run. The sole has decent energy return, much livelier feel than the Brooks Ghosts I ran with in the past, but not as light as the Borclays I just ran in last. I think they offer an excellent balance between weight, cushion and grip on the road. I love these shoes, and would highly recommend them!
