When I first put these on to go run my son asked me if I was going bowling. OK. They look funny and Addidas please give me another color option but I think it is a great shoe. It says Buy this shoe 1/2 size up and I normally wear a 9.5 and so I bought a 10 but they feel just a shade too short. Also, my foot is a little wider that normal and some brands make a D that is wide enough but the D on these is not quite. So, not the best pick for me but still a cool comfortable shoe and really nice and light - I love that part. I'm a heavy runner (210) and so instead of getting a Neutral+ which I should have I went for the lightest shoe I could find without getting in to the Performance shoes. If you are a 180 or under runner and can get the size right I think that you would love this shoe. I wore Addidas Oregons in college (many years ago) and that was my favorite shoe to date (I was 170 then). Special Request: Addidas please bring back the Oregon! Maybe you did and are hiding under another name. Just slip me a free pair and I'll do a commercial for you or clean your bathrooms or something.

Never worn Adidas before, but my favorite running shop guy recommended it so highly I decided to give it a try, and haven't looked back. It is super fast, but also plenty of cushion and energy return as well. I am six feet, 195, and have finally found a lightweight shoe that can handle my weight. Just set a 5K PR, knocking a 1:20 off best time. I had to go 1/2 size larger than my regular running shoe. I've been running thirty years and this is easily the best shoe I'ver ever worn!
Very Nice Shoe
Very nice shoe for any distance. Comparable to Brooks Launch/Burn except that the heel-to-toe drops is greater. I liked the midsole material of this shoe better than the Brooks Launch because it is more firm. And to me, that makes it more responsive. With the Brooks Launch, it feels a bit squishy at times and I don't feel like my turnover is as quick. The Boston is a nice light shoe that can work for any distance. I have put a couple hundred miles on it and it feels the same as it did on day one. These miles include speedwork as well as 20+ mile runs. While the heel-to-toe drop is about average this shoe still promotes a forefoot landing.

Boston would be proud
Ran in the Original "bostons" years back, but they messed with that shoe and really disappointed me. Now this Boston is back and better than ever before. Very light shoe that does not sacrifice comfort and cushion. Honestly does not even feel like I am wearing shoes when running in them. Will see how many miles I can put on them before they give. Great shoe for marathoner looking for a lightweight trainer that can provide optimal support for long runs.
Cardiff by The Sea
This shoe has comfortable cushioning and is good fit for those like me who have narrow feet and high arches. Very lightweight and durable, but I wish it was more breathable. I am coming off a long layoff from Achilles Tendonitis and so far this shoe has provided sufficient cushioning and stability to help prevent reoccurrence.
Great Racing Shoe for halfs and fulls
I love this shoe. Wore it in an 8K right out of the box and almost got a PR. Lightweight but lots of cushioning. I got it to race half and full marathons in. Upper is completely breathable. Tongue doesn't slide or slip. Great shoe!
Outer Banks, NC
Very good shoe that could use some impro
I was running in Tempos and went to try the latest Tempo 4. Ended up with these instead and now I don't run in the Tempos at all.
These have better cushion and feel smoother but still nimble and lightweight.
The upper is very flimsy and doesn't grab my foot well. I am constantly adjusting the tension of the laces if find the right support. The midsole is perfect and should never be changed. I see there is now a Boston 3 which looks different so I hope they fixed the upper and did not screw up the midsole. Used to run in Nike Pegasus but this shoe is much better.
Light Shoe-Snug Fit
Very light and great styling, but overly tight fit compared to last year's Boston Classics.
Good value and quality
A great, fast minimalist shoe whilst providing joint support.
I'm currently training for a marathon so the boston's get a good workout. Still hold true even for 30km training runs. My knee injury has dropped off since changing Nike Structures for the Bostons.
They feel very narrow but it makes them snug rather than uncomfortable. Go half a size up.
That being said, i'll buy them again and recommend to others.
Great Shoe from Adidas
Great shoe. I've put roughly 500 miles on them and they've been great. Will be getting another pair very soon.
Went up half a size, quite narrow, but I got used to it.
Lightweight, well-cushioned (but not squishy soft), overall great shoe. Use it for everything, seeing as I never got into using different shoes for different workouts.
Poplar Grove, IL
The Perfect Running Shoe
The adiZero Boston is proving to be a meduim weight training shoe that has comfort usually not evient in a running shoe.
It is breathable and comfortable for meduim to long training runs.
As an added bonus, it looks good and can be worn when you're not working out!
Run for Beer
Finally a true "long distance" light tra
Finally, a great long Distance trainer, as a Sub 3 runner,this shoe will be a great addition to my preparation phase(aerobic)It such feels great during my long runs, it response well up hills and very reactive down hills. I will use this shoe for Boston 2011,
Jury still out
Loved the last pair of Adidas Boston that I had, which, of course were discontinued!!! I need a few more miles on this pair before I give my final call, but so far so good.
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Its been an absolutely great shoe for me; the fit is great roomy in the mid and fore foot where most shoes give me a problem, this one does not. I love it.
Take it to the limit - one more time -
A durable, fast, distance trainer, for the efficient runner. Even light enough for road racing at longer distances (10Km or more).
Port Alberni, BC
