Overall, I really like these shoes. I use them for road running (about 40 - 45 miles per week). The fit is a bit odd in that the toe of the shoe is sort of long and pointy (it's rounded, but still pointy, if that makes any sense), making the shoe fit a bit squishy on my smaller, outside toes, but long on my big and second toes. It's odd, but not a deal-breaker because I don't trip in the shoes nor have I had bad blisters on the smaller toes. They just feel a bit small on one side yet big on the other. Perhaps I am just used to the more square-ish toe box of the Brooks PureFlows (my other primary running shoe) that fits my foot better.
I like the feel of the bottom of this shoe when landing mid-foot, though it took me a few runs to be able to land comfortably that way because of the large heel-to-toe drop in these shoes. As a disclaimer: I have become a mid-foot striker to reduce my injuries (which has worked incredibly well) and to do so, I switched to only wearing shoes with a low heel-to-toe drop (Brooks PureFlow and Saucony Kinvara being my two favorites). These are my first "regular" running shoes since changing my stride to a mid-foot landing, so perhaps it's just a matter of me needing to re-adjust to the larger heel-to-toe drop. These shoes were so highly rated by Runner's World that I wanted to give them a try.
The shoes are quite comfortable on my long-ish runs (I have worn them on two 10-mile runs so far), and they don't leave my legs overly fatigued, so for that, I rate them highly. I bought these because of the glowing reviews I read about them, and while I don't agree with the hype (they're good running shoes, but I wouldn't call them incredible), my only real complaint is the toe box. I guess my only other complaint is that they are awfully expensive given that they don't seem any better than my Brooks PureFlows or my Saucony Kinvaras, both significantly less expensive shoes. I know the manufacturer claims that you can get more miles from this shoe than you are supposed to be able to get from the Brooks Pure line (which would justify the cost difference if true), but I have been able to get just as many miles from my PureFlows compared to these.
I am not going to return these shoes, but I am not sure if I will order another pair when it's time to replace them.

Fast and fabulous
I love this shoe.
This is my second pair of Adidas in the last 2 1/2 years and first boost. I've always been an Asics fan and cannot believe what I've been missing! My body: 5'7, 140 lbs and this shoe has provided such wonderful support and spring to my workout. I do a lot of hill and interval running- this shoe responds great to varying terrains. Sounds crazy, but I actually feel faster in these shoes and feel as if my stride is better. Additionally, the pains in my knees and lower back that I woulda occasionally feel on longer workouts in other shoes are gone. I definitely think the shoe plays a major role in that.. Please continue to make this shoe!!! It has changed my running experience for the better!!!

I wear out my shoes under the ball of my foot so I like a cushioned forefoot that's also responsive to each stride. This shoe delivers! I like the Boost mid-sole technology that provides responsive cushion , not that soft marshmellow cushion of some other clunky shoes I've had where you have to sacrifice energy return for cushioned comfort. I like to run 200s and 400s on the track and road and this shoe delivers a smooth, quick transition from toe-off to the next stride as your heel cycles through towards glutes and into the next stride. It feels great on my longer, slower runs, too by allowing me to comfortably strike the ground but not "land" and sink into it.

Finally found the perfect shoe!
I have high arches and need a lot of cushioning when running. I finally found a pair of shoes with enough! I used to run in Nike Zoom Vomeros, but their most recent version lacked the same amount of comfort as the previous ones. I ran 3 miles with these shoes out of the box and they were so comfortable...my hip and ankle didn't hurt like they did with the Vomeros, and I actually increased the speed of my run by 25 seconds/mile. I was definitely pleasantly surprised with these shoes.

So far so good
I took these on a three mile run right out of the box. I normally run in the Nike Vomero 8 and after reading a professional review on these, just had to try them. The boost material does bring a springy feeling under foot that I noticed most after I took them off and put my older asics on for the drive home from the gym. I was also faster in these as compared to the Nikes. I purchased the glow - not as electric as I thought they might be. Good shoes, I wear a 10 in Nikes but ordered these in a 9.5 and they fight perfectly. I am a 9 in regular shoes.
Good cushion running shoe
I run & walk 30 - 40 miles per week (mostly running) - bought my regular sz RUNNING shoe and it fit perfectly so, didn't go up the 1/2 sz as suggested. I have slightly wide feet so, toe box is important - plenty of room. Flexible & great cushion - don't know how well they will wear so -- 4 stars. If you are an adidas shoe fan, you won't be disappointed with this one.
Found my half marathon shoe!
These are Great for those longer runs~ I normally run in Nike Free and was married to them, but when I moved passed 15K I needed more cushion for my knees and feet. These work great and I fully enjoyed running through Disney World in them! I do think they run slightly larger than normal. A 9 in Nike is nothing like a 9 in these.

Great Durable Training Shoe
I am logging 30+ miles/week with this shoe and it stays durable and continues to fit well. The product suggests going a 1/2 size up, which I typically do for my running shoes; however, I found that larger size too big needed to stay with my typical shoe size.
These didn't work for me
I bought this shoe with the hope it would help with my plantar faciitis. No luck. I found the shoe to feel unstable. Almost like a rocking backward feeling in the heel. Not the shoe for me, I've run in Asics shoes for years and they have served me the best. I'm going back to Asics!
I always wore Nike Pegasus, but they changed the design and they haven't fit well. I tried these after trying other and love them. They will be my new "go to" running shoe.
would definately buy this shoe again
Took the shoes out of the box and walked 30 miles - considering the distance the shoes were excellent - no blistering - amazing considering just out of box
Supernova Glide 6
I would love it if the show was a bit wider like the Adidas Marathon or the previous versions of the Supernova. I like it for now.
Truly liking gliding with a boost
After a winter of confinement to pavement, these shoes were as good as running on a trail. The cushioning felt great on my pavement-weary feet.
Favorite Shoe Ever
I love these shoes! So much so that I just ordered last year's model (2014). I'm afraid to leave a good thing!
Be Careful Runs Big
Ran really big. I returned these for the energy boost. They work better for me.

Great light running shoe
Always had adidas running shoes (Spider lite; Supernova Glide 4) Was looking for a new light adidas and found the Supernova Glide 6 Boost through reviews. I am very happy with this shoe so far. True to size with slight great toe wiggle room, but not too much. Very light, fast, comfortable, breathable. Did not get any blisters yet even though I have a slight bunion deformity on one foot. Good for long distances. Did run even faster than usual. No tired feet. Feel-good shoe. Love the gray/orange color combination.
