So what do I like about the Adios Boost? Mainly that it runs really smooth and disappears on my feet. The heel is very soft, and the forefoot is firm, and this is a combo that I like in a lot of shoes (already mentioned the 1400, but also the Newton Energy). I tend to land on the midfoot or very lightly on my heel and a soft heel makes for a very smooth transition for my stride (whereas a firm, inflexible heel like in the Mizuno Sayonara just doesn’t work with my stride). The firm forefoot feels great when picking up the pace. I much prefer the Adios Boost sole as compared to the overall firmer sole of the Adios 2.
If you are looking for a new pair of running shoes, Pete Larson recently reviewed the adidas Adios Boost. You can read the full review on his Runblogger website. The site has a section dedicated to shoe reviews and is a great resource for anyone in the market for a new pair of shoes. Whether you are looking for your first pair of running shoes, or are just ready for a new pair, the site has great information about numerous brands and styles. More importantly, the reviews are detailed and sincere (Larson wrote a post on honesty in reviews on his other site, The Blogologist). It can be a great source of information to help you make a buying decision. Keep in mind though that any review is based in part on user experience so might be different for you. Be sure to try shoes on and if possible try them out before purchasing.
