Rated 4 out of 5 by Alan From Franklin Great lower half, Weak upper half
Obviously this is just a personal preference. But while I love the cushioning and the perfect rise from front to back, I do not like the upper half construction.
The upper half feels like a sock, not a shoe. It is flimsy enough that a quick turn or a slope will cause your foot to shift inside the shoe. I am a little concerned that a second of not paying attention to my foot striking the pavement will cause a turned ankle or a fall.
I run in a very hilly area and prefer a bit more substance than this upper half. But in optimum conditions it is a very comfortable shoe and has plenty of cushioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NUPE running Best shoe ever
I have very sensitive feet and this shoe is the best one i have run in. I have been running for 10+ years and have run in many different shoes and I can say with out a doubt that this is the best! I have a narrow foot and it was just right for me so I will say it is runs narrow but that is great for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Numbers Same great sole; more plush upper
I purchased the original Boost shoes when they came out last year and absolutely love them. Although v1.0 and v2.0 look the same, there are some significant differences between the two versions.
The new shoe fits much more true to size. I originally ordered my v2.0 shoes a 1/2 size larger than normal, as I did for v1.0, but this was a mistake. The new shoes run much more true to size, so I returned them and purchased the shoe in the size I normally wear. These fit great.
The upper is also much more plush on v2.0 than v1.0, especially in the tongue. While the added material means that the new shoe doesn't quite feel as much like an extension of your foot as the original; the update feels great and seems to correct the pressure point issues some runners experienced with v1.0. Also, the v2.0 shoes seem to sit a little higher off of the ground than the originals.
That said, the feel of the shoe and cushioning are just as good as in the original. Love these shoes and think that they're the best looking Boosts yet. Will definitely buy another pair when these need to be replaced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dan.W. Just received mine..
I've been looking at the blue Energy Boost 2.0's for some time and finally pulled the trigger. I just received in the mail and have had the opportunity to run in them on day 1 and lift in them on day 2. I'll run again tonight. Very comfortable, great cushion, bounce back, and phenomenal look - the best out there imo.
My question however, is do they loosen up during break-in? 20 years as an adult on this planet, I've always worn a Size 12, no issues whatsoever. This shoe is very tight as my toes are pushing at the front more than I've ever had. Some say size up .5. Unfortunately at a 12, it's either that or a 13. I'm staying with the 12 for now. Will they stretch slightly? Thx.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mcavallo22 Better than original
I recently purchased the Boost 2.0 and somehow adidas have managed to make a sure better than the original Boost. The cushioning is about the same, but the fit of the shoe is much improved. The additional padding in the tongue gives the shoe a much more snug fit, and overall the shoe just feels even better on your foot.
Running in these, as with the original boost, is an absolute joy. Each step gives you a distinct bounce, and I find that even after longer runs, it is my lungs that want to quit, not my legs. I would highly recommend these shoes to any and everyone.
As others have noted, drop a half size to get a snug fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by High School Runner The Cure
I am a high school year round cross country and track runner. I have suffered from impact injuries (shin splints, tight/painful knees) from overuse for over 4 months. I recently bought these shoes about a week ago and I have had no pain whatsoever running since. They are very soft and well cushioned, perfect for areas with hard surfaces. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone who feels that the impact of running causes pain and injuries. Great purchase! Thank you adidas for letting me get back to my training!

I started with energy boost 1.0 about half a year ago. They were amazing! How did they make the 2.0s better?! They wore bare around 700-800 miles within that time. (Surprising because they have very shallow traction padding on the outsole anyway) I love these shoes! No really they're great! I wouldn't recommend anything else and neither would my 3 other team mates that love them. (One of them is 200lbs and about 6ft tall! He does 20 milers often in them) These shoes are all around solid trainers. They are more suited to road, groomed trails or track running. But rough trails aren't impossible. They are very comfortable most realistically form the half mile to a 13 mile run. If you need a new trainer. Get the Energy Boosts totally worth the money!

Respective running shoes arrived a bit too narrow. The San Francisco marathon was just 2 weeks away. The friendly person at the hotline expedited the return and the shipment of the new, bigger pairs to allow to break in the shoes prior to the marathon. I am very pleased, and hope for a new PM. Thanks, Adidas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kehead Unfortunately, I'm returning mine...
I haven't been this excited for a shoe technology since the Reebok Pump, but unfortunately, these didn't work for me. I read a lot about the fit of these and how you should order a size up, but I typically have comfort room in what I view as my true size, so I ignored and ordered my size. I actually don't understand why they're encouraging sizing up because I had way too much room. Also, the heel rides too high for my taste. Wore them around the house for two days and ran in them once before getting a good sized blister on my heel. Overall, I would still recommend these if you can find the right fit. The Boost sole really is very nice and comfortable, but these just didn't work for me. Unfortunately, I'm returning mine.
