83 / 100 based on 8 expert reviews

  • 96 / 100 by Runblogger • Peter Larson • Level 5 expert

    The Adios Boost had a perfect combo of a soft heel and a firm, responsive forefoot. It ran incredibly smooth, and the fit was dialed in on my feet. Pretty much a perfect shoe for my taste, and the 10mm drop did not bother me at all.

  • 78 / 100 by Runner's World • Runner's World • Level 5 expert

    Bottom Line: Heavier than other flats; save these for long races.

  • 74 / 100 by Solereview • Solereview • Level 5 expert

    The new laces need to be tied tight, else they’re prone to coming undone because of its smoother surface.

  • 72 / 100 by Running Times • Running Times • Level 5 expert

    Note: The upper is narrow and curved and didn't fit all testers comfortably. The outsole provides noticeable traction and durability.

  • 96 / 100 by Magandeep Singh • Magandeep Singh • Level 3 expert

    PROS: Super shoe for speed and grip, great control CONS: None really; just a caveat: not a beginner running shoe.

  • 81 / 100 by Gear Selected • Charles • Level 2 expert

    Some of the forefoot grip has worn as expected, but it still grips plenty well enough and the boost sole is indestructible and as far as I can tell is “as new”.

  • 94 / 100 by Andy Kumar • Andy Kumar • Level 1 expert

    The shoes felt comfortable and responsive throughout the race, and I didn't feel any discomfort whatsoever. It would be no exaggeration to say that I felt like I was flying in these shoes!

  • 89 / 100 by Run And Become • Sarah Scott • Level 1 expert

    Overall, I find this a great shoe, at the moment it is my shoe of choice for all of my speed work and shorter runs.

Updates to Adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2.0

  • Lightweight performance on the road is a big part of what the 2nd version of the Adidas Adizero Adios Boost is capable of providing to its wearer. Featuring high quality components and systems that’re meant to deliver sure cushioning and protection to the foot, this model becomes a formidable option for those who want a great time running.
  • The upper unit of this running shoe makes use of a breathable material that easily allows air to enter the interior foot-chamber in order to keep the foot cool and dry. It encompasses the foot in a snug and secure manner, but it doesn’t make the coverage too tight. Tirrenina suede overlays help the fabric in hugging the foot responsibly.
  • The mid-sole unit of the Adizero Adios Boost 2.0 uses a firm EVA rim that’s meant to keep the platform a bit more durable and able to carry the weight of the runner with ease. The main cushioning unit used here is the boost™ which is a single foam component that’s made from the amalgamation of lightweight but durable TPU pellets. It’s strong and responsive, thus allowing the foot to experience impact protection and additional boost when lifting off.
  • The outsole unit is flexible and durable. It doesn’t make the foot feel restricted in terms of its movements. The rubber compound that’s used here isn’t too thick, but it is present and it is more than capable of shielding the mid-sole from the abrasive nature of the asphalt.

Adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2.0 size and fit

The Adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2.0 has a standard running shoe length. It comes in sizes that follow the regular measurements for men and women. The width of this shoe is medium, so it is able to accommodate those with medium sized feet. The natural shape of the human foot is able to acclimate well to the semi-curved shape of this model.


Outsole

The outsole unit features a design that doesn’t make it look and feel too heavy or stiff. Runners are able to move more naturally through the gait cycle because of a thin outsole profile that’s still reliable when it comes to surface control and durable protection.

Continental™ Rubber is one of the most dependable outsole technologies in the market. Its durable nature prevents friction, debris and continued use from affecting the structural integrity of the sole unit. It effectively protections it from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It is also responsible for the surface traction.


Midsole

The boost™ technology is a mid-sole foam that’s made from the compaction of TPU pellets that are responsive and durable. This platform actually allows the foot to feel a bit of a boost when taking each step, launching the runner forward with every toe-off. It is also able to receive impact pressure and prevent discomfort.

Immediate underfoot cushioning is given by an EVA sock liner, which has been molded to provide contoured support to the curves of the foot pad.
