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 jayster10 good everyday trainer
I never considered adidas for running shoes for long distance running and was recommended this at local running store.
Its a good shoe, light and cushy, however, personally I would want more forefoot cushioning so that the offset would become 4-6mm and not present 10mm.
I really like the upper and how it wraps your foot so that it feels really solid on turns no slippage. Did a long run and no discomfort , but its too early to tell if there will be cumulative damage overtime due to light forefoot cushioning.
Definitely buy 1/2 size up, the general fit is great as much as I'm thinking running without socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 200Pounder Big guy likes bouncy shoe.
I am 200+ pounds, 5'11", and was looking for a shoe that would help with the impact my weight puts on my back and legs when jogging.
This shoe has a really good sole. It's good from the moment you put it on.. but it really shines after the first couple of miles of your run.
That when I feel it really respond.. when I start going faster and my feet hit the ground harder.
There are things I wish were better, but it's more about personal taste. If it fits your foot well, it's a good running shoe to add to your collection.
My wish list:
I wish the arch was just a touch wider.
I wish the outer sole looked better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Munamankeli Comfy shoe for recovery and easy runs
Comfortable thanks to flexible forefoot material and Boost midsole. Suitable for relatively slow pace from 4.30 min/km and above. The shoe is so bouncy and sturdy that tempo runs and especially intervals must be done wearing adios Boost or similar racing flat.
Some say the fit is snug but I would say it fits like a glove thanks to clever upper material. However, check sizing and try 'em before buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Simon Martin Tightness around stripes casued blisters
Meant for my longer training runs of 13.1 or more, I wore these three times and each time they caused blisters on the outside of my right foot where the stripes are. A great shame because they felt really great to run in. As a result, I changed to the BoostGlide for longer training runs and the fit is much better. Adidas, please remember that some runners need broader fitting shoes - it would be great to have the broad option for all types.

Was so excited to run Boston in these… Gave them a trial run three weeks before, and was ready to kick them off after 1 mile. Love the fact that there are no scenes and the meshes ultrasoft, but the plastic stripes on the side room on it… You can feel them from the inside. I do not have a Whitefoot, but these seem very narrow… Feet were killing me at the end of 3 miles.
I am packing them up and returning them.

This is a great shoe for me. I've been battling a lower leg soreness and the Boost helped me eliminate the soreness. The shoe fits snugly but is not restrictive. The boost material is more cushioning than others but does have adequate support. This shoe will work for most runners but not a big person or one with a real wide foot.

Ironically I barely run in them, but I train, use for work, and wear them casually. Cant wait for the Rose 5 with boost. I bought the Boost 2.0 black pair, wore it 15 days straight for EVERYTHING, and ended up buying the gradient and red soled pair. Got them for my father on April fools day. He loves them too. Get a 1/2 size up.
