86 / 100 based on 8 expert reviews

  • 91 / 100 by Solereview • Solereview • Level 5 expert

    The Sequence is not a running shoe which is going to blow you away by being spectacular in any one area.

  • 88 / 100 by Doctors of Running • Dr. Matthew Klein • Level 5 expert

    Due to the narrower upper, I initially didn't want to like this shoe. However, the Sequence Boost has grown on me.

  • 85 / 100 by Canadian Running Magazine • Canadian Running Magazine • Level 5 expert

    The Continental rubber sole will ensure no slips during wet conditions and hundreds of K’s of strong performance before any significant breakdown.

  • 84 / 100 by Running Competitor • Brian Metzler • Level 5 expert

    It’s a medium-volume shoe with moderate arch support and a super-resilient midsole foam that’s locked down with an internal support frame.

  • 82 / 100 by Gear Institute • Carol Davenport • Level 2 expert

    Overall, I’d recommend the Adidas Supernova Sequence for the heavy or high-mileage runner who does most of his or her training on the roads.

  • 80 / 100 by The Fat Panther • Mark • Level 2 expert

    Recommended for heel striking runners, I’d probably buy it, some room for improvement

  • 86 / 100 by All About Anthony • Anthony Levine • Level 1 expert

    What makes these Adidas Supernova Sequence 7 even better is the boost technology in the midsole which adds a nice springiness when walking around.

  • 85 / 100 by Salt Marsh Running • Tina Saltmarsh • Level 1 expert

    My heel feels nice and secure and there’s plenty of padding underneath for a heel-striker like me.

Updates to Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost 7

  • The Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost 7 is a running shoe that’s made for runners who want to experience a stable ride when they’re doing their daily runs. It features technologies and systems that all work together to bring a cohesive package for the wearer. Its quality is reliable and it makes sure to bring exceptional performance to those who choose it as their running companion.
  • The upper unit of this running shoe makes use of a mesh material that is able to acclimate to the foot-type that is wearing it. Essentially, it doesn’t feel restrictive or stiff. It’s movable, pliable and breathable. It keeps the interior environment cool and dry for the foot because of its open construction. Stitched-on overlays secure the sides of the foot, as well as the heel.
  • Two layers make up the mid-sole unit of the Supernova Sequence Boost 7. The top layer is made out of Ethylene vinyl acetate, an industry standard foam that’s efficient when it comes to delivering support and cushioning to the foot. It is able to attenuate shock and carry the weight of the body without succumbing to breakage. The boost™ technology gives energy to the runner, enabling them to lift off the ground with more efficacy and power.
  • Stability is also afforded to the wearer. Those who have trouble when it comes to the pronation of their feet won’t stay troubled because there’s sufficient mid-foot support in this model. Even the stride is guided to achieve smoothness and balance because of the presence of a mid-foot shank.
  • Continental™ Rubber is one of the most durable outsole technologies on the market. It is capable of shielding the rest of the sole unit from the potentially harmful effects of surface contact and continued use. It is also the one responsible for the traction the runner gets during each running session.

Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost 7 size and fit

The Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost 7 has a standard running shoe length. The sizes that are available follow regular measurements. The width of this shoe is medium, so it is able to allow those with medium sized feet to acclimate well to it. Its semi-curved shape adheres to the natural shape of the human foot.


Outsole

The Continental™ Rubber is one of the most dependable compounds for running shoes. Constructed to deliver sure protection and traction, it delivers sound service and purpose. Surface friction and road abrasion won’t do any harm to the sole unit because it’s aptly durable. Control over the asphalt is also received because it holds onto the ground well.


Midsole

The mid-sole unit of the Supernova Sequence Boost 7 features an EVA Stable Frame that runs its entire length. It’s made to assist the stride and support the foot, especially as it transitions from the heel to the toe.

The boost™ technology is made up of tiny TPU pellets that have been combined to make a single unit. Its job is to deliver high quality cushioning that works to attenuate shock and carry the weight of the runner. It also gives energy back to the runner, making them enabled and propelled to take the next step with power.

The TORSION® SYSTEM is a mid-foot mechanism that guides the runner in achieving a balanced gait. It makes each heel-to-toe transition as natural and smooth as possible. It also maintains the structural integrity of the mid-sole.

Balance is given to the runner via medial and lateral support sections. Foot pronation becomes stable, thus preventing discomfort or injury when running.


Upper

The upper unit uses engineered mesh, which is a material that is able to adapt to the shape of the foot that is wearing it. Essentially, it doesn’t make the coverage feel tight or unwieldy. It even allows air to circulate, keeping the foot cool and dry at all times.

A mid-foot sock-like fit makes the interior feel smooth and non-irritating. It basically lets runners wear the Adidas Supernova Sequence Boost 7 even without actual socks.
