by Barcs Two pairs is three times as good as one
Bought a pair of S'nova Glide 6 Boost about a month ago. Loved them. Pitched two older S'nova Glide pairs (a Glide 3 and a Glide 5). So impressed after two weeks I bought a second pair to put into rotation. Not sure when my remaining pair of 3, 4 or 5 will get used.

I've been a runner since high school and am now nearly 65. Thus, I have worn hundreds of different shoes over the decades. I've been a big fan of the Supernova Cushion and Glides (although the Glide 5 was a dud# and have gone through numerous pairs. But this new Glide 6 is just possibly the best shoe I have ever tried #trying to resist hyperbole). Love the very natural feel and especially the forefoot cushioning. My feet really love them. If there is any room for improvement, I think it might help to have a slightly wider toe box. Even so, they felt just a little narrow when I first put them on, but during the runs, no problem. Good work, Adidas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TBHARE Works well for me!
I'm tough to fit. I find that running shoes are often strangely contoured inside so that they apply pressure to the bottoms of my feet at various spots. These shoes don't. The interior cushioning is fairly firm, but comfortable. The boost material works as a good shock absorber as well. I've had success with some of the low profile running shoes in the past, but I have no regrets switching to these. Though not heavy, they feel like a sturdier and more solid shoe than some of the low profiles. BTW, I tried the Energy Boost and loved them, except they were too narrow (even in a larger size.) My only complaint at this point with the Glide 6 is that the toe box is a little wide.

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.

Im a keen runner who's tried most leading shoes on the market today and nothing comes close to the glide boosts. Perfect fit, feel great & at last found a running shoe I want to stick with!

I had previously been running in the Sequence 6 Supernova, and I found it a tad too heavy for my blistering pace. The Glide 6 is lightweight, yet it offers adequate support for a pronater like myself. The shoe runs true to size and the color is wicked cool.

Very comfortable shoes, the fit is a little tight but feel perfect when I run. My legs don't ache the next day after a long run with these running shoes.

The review I'm Runners World said they were great. That is an understatement. Most comfortable shoe for running I have ever had.

Shoe feels very comfortable. The foam is very different then regular Eva. You can still feel the road but it absorbs the impact really good.
