Summary

We spent 7.5 hours reading reviews from experts and users. In summary, this is what runners think:

6 reasons to buy

  • The TechFit upper provides structure with just a tad of flexibility.
  • The increasingly popular Boost midsole deliver premium and responsive cushioning.
  • Boasts of superior traction on a multitude of surfaces.
  • Almost all of the reviews noted how good the Energy Boost 2.0 ATR looks.
  • Most of the runners gave thumbs up to the shoe’s ability to lock down the foot.
  • Miles of running only showed minimal wear and tear according to many runners.

3 reasons not to buy

  • The Adidas Energy Boost 2.0 ATR is expensive.
  • It is on the heavier side of the spectrum.
  • A few users complained about its stiffness.

Bottom line

The Adidas Energy Boost 2.0 ATR is a bulked up and muscled version of the original model. It is a neutral shoe with significant arch support that slight overpronators can maximize. The slightly heavy weight and stiff price will tone down the appeal of this shoe.

Updates to Adidas Energy Boost 2.0 ATR

  • The Adidas Energy Boost 2.0 ATR’s most glaring update is the removal of the leather midfoot panels for the sturdier midfoot rib cage. An already snug fit got another level of foot-hugging feature from this update.
  • The heel area gets a slight upgrade courtesy of stronger, more luxurious material and the same plastic in the midfoot that extends a bit to this part. This new plastic feature enhances heel support and security.
  • Just around the heel area is the Adidas logo and dots for night-time reflection. This will serve the runners when running after work or before just the dawn breaks. Directly below the heel, in the outsole, is a new flared rubber or “lip,” that helps make ground contact softer and more stable.

Adidas Energy Boost 2.0 ATR size and fit

The fit is exactly like that of the original model, which is really snug and wraps the foot like a sock. In other words, runners who want a bit more room in the forefoot or for the toes to splay might consider going half or a full size up. The widths are the standard D for the men’s and B for the women’s. Sizing is amazingly true and should be convenient for runners who want to go up in size. The men’s options are from 6 to 13 while the women’s are from 4 to 11.


Outsole

Adidas’ use of the Continental Rubber compound in the Energy Boost 2.0 ATR gives it a really nice grip on practically all surfaces. An All-Terrain Outsole featuring numerous lugs with varying densities enhances the traction on graveled, dirt, or loose trail.


Midsole

The midsole is primarily composed of Adidas’ most famous midsole in the Boost. It is a midsole composed of energy capsules that lock together to cushion every landing, while it bounces back the impact of the landing for a really responsive feel. The most unique feature of the Boost is it stays soft and responsive regardless of weather conditions. This runs the entire length of the shoe for consistent cushioning and really dynamic return. A torsion plate for stability extends just above the midfoot to the forefoot. This feature also helps in making transitions smoother and more efficient as the heel and forefoot can move independently.


Upper

The upper mesh is really tight, almost like a spandex. It gives the upper a fit like a true second skin and adapts extremely well to the natural movement of runners. A molded TPU heel counter gives structure and cradles the heel really well.
