      Comments about Mens adidas Energy Boost 2 ESM Running Shoe:

      I don't know what Adidas did to their running shoes but....I love it. I would never have dreamed of buying or running in Adidas until I tried one of the Boost on at the store. BAM..like that...I had to try. They are light and have a bounce. They feel like running on clouds. Far different shoes than any others. I switch between these and a pair of Brooks. The brooks offer a firm stance to change it up but, when heading for a run I find myself gravitating towards the Adidas.

      Fit is 1/2 size big and a slightly narrow shoe.

          This has got to be the best athletic shoe sole in the market, this is the third pair I buy with this technology and I love them.
          I recommend them for running, walking and the gym. Oh!... and Disneyland. I will defenetly buy them again, I just saw the golf shoe with the same sole and want them bad.

          Not like the original Boost!

          By Soccerdog

          from Centennial, CO

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Nice cushion

          Cons

          • Not Good For Hils

          Best Uses

          • Track Or Flat Running

          Comments about Mens adidas Energy Boost 2 ESM Running Shoe:

          This shoe is looser in the toe box unlike the first Boost Energy which is more form fitting. I am a soccer player and the old Boost fit like a cleat and the new one doesn't so I am unhappy with the fit. I do have a somewhat narrow foot.
          Another thing I don't like is running up or down hills in these shoes. They are great for flat running, like a track, but if I run in my neighborhood the hills are uncomfortable.
          This shoe is not uncomfortable in general, it just isn't what I have experienced from previous Boost styles. I did try on several Boost styles and found the fit differences to be consistent through all the newer styles.
          I ended up returning these after about 5 runs due to the lack of comfort on anything but flat. I would recommend them if you are only going to be running on a track or flat ground. The cushion is still excellent for that use.

          Comments about Mens adidas Energy Boost 2 ESM Running Shoe:

          I am a big fan of the boost midsole. I'm 5'9" 175 and log 30+ miles a week. In my later 40's after 2 back surgeries and numerous procedures, I have to have a smooth ride. Adidas boost provides that smooth ride for me, I also enjoy the seamless construction of the boot, along with these being a narrow shoe. For me, I haven't found anything better and I've been through a trailer's worth of shoes looking for a shoe that works.

          Comments about Mens adidas Energy Boost 2 ESM Running Shoe:

          I was looking for a different brand of shoe to rotate with my Nike Vomero while training for the Phoenix Marathon. The RR employee guided me to these Addidas and the Saucony Triumph ISO as I was looking for light and medium to soft sole. They both felt light and comfortable. I have a completely unfounded bias against Saucony so ended up with these Addidas. I've had these for a about two weeks and have taken them on long, medium and short runs. My second run in them was 15 miles (I know, a bit risky in a new shoe) and they did fantastic. My feet felt good the entire run.

          I bought these during an additional 20% sale on top of my VIP which brought the overall price below $140. Which is about $40 more than I wanted to spend but the quality is definitely there. They do run narrow and therefore it is recommended to run a size bigger, I wear a 10.5 run in an 11 and have these in a 11.5. I can't comment on how well they hold up, they are supposed to be a 5-600 mile shoe. I'm not very hard on my shoes and expect these will do fine.

          These shoes are amazing. They are very light and provide support.
          I would order a full size up. If you have very wide feet they might be uncomfortable.
          I have normal feet and normally wear 9.5 ended up getting 10.5.
          A+ I definetily recommend them.
