Rated 2 out of 5 by Boston_Runner219 Factory Error?
First of all, the boost material really is great. I can feel a difference. However, these still run too small and there was no warning on this particular shoe about ordering up a size. Finally, it seemed like the tongue had some kind of factory error. Check the attached picture showing what I received versus what the on-line photo looks like. They are completely different. The tongue is way too long and comes out of the top too far... so not only does it not function well, but it looks bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whil The Glide 6 Boost running shoes are awesome.
I really have to commend Adidas on taking a good training (not race) running shoe, the Glide 5, and making it even better with the use of your Boost sole material. Before it was a good shoe in that area between neutral and guidance. Now it's still that, but it has so much more spring, cushion, and energy return. Immediately noticeable on treadmill or road. GREAT WORK ADIDAS RUNNING!

Rated 5 out of 5 Adidas making all the right moves with Boost.
They hit a definite home run again with the boost line. I own the energy, adios, and now these pair. They are definitely raise my speed and distance. The glide are very comfortable. I will train in them then on raceday I switch over adios boost. Been hitting personal best since I got them. I recommend Them strongly. The boost line is the best.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GrumpyRunner Wanted to like them more
Since buying the original energy boost I have been really looking forward to the new Glide with a more traditional upper. However, although it's a nice shoe it feels a bit firmer and a bit clunky, it doesn't have that fun, slightly magical feel that the original boost has.
The most comfortable traditional upper I find is the Nike Pegasus so this slightly scratchy lesser quality was a little surprising and the firmer less bouncy feel was a bit disappointing too. It's a heavier shoe but maybe the extra support would be better for a longer race, on the other hand you are carrying the extra weight on your feet which could take its toll over a long course.
As ever the sizing is a slight issue and I was torn between 10.5 and 11 (other shoes I'm a 10) and eventually decided on the 11 but I need to have a much longer run to decide for sure so will annoyingly have to return these and re-purchase from a running shop which offer a 28 day return so you can properly road test them (which adidas don't which is understandable but a bit frustrating)
I really wanted the new Glide Boost to be perfect for me but they just don't feel quite right, no doubt a few versions down the line they might be. So I'm still looking for my London Marathon shoe, I'll maybe look at the new Mizuno Wave Rider 17 or stick with the original energy boost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stokow Great Shoe!
I had on old glide 4 that needed to be replaced, and I found this shoe at a local retailer. Tried it on, ran around and was immediately sold. Great heel cushsion and, the underfoot cushion is also more than sufficient. Super comfortable shoe!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pactel Not MiCoach Compatible
Despite what the website says and the "mi" tab on the tongue of the shoe, this model has no miCoach SpeedCell cutout in either shoe.
