Who should buy the Adidas Pureboost Go
This running shoe from Adidas is likely to please you if you are after the following:
- a daily running shoe for easy miles and treadmill that can also do all-day walking
- a cheaper alternative to the Ultraboosts
- a good-looking trainer that can be worn for casual wear
Who should NOT buy the shoe
If you are concerned about the fiddly lacing, have a look at the Adidas Solarglide 5. And if you don't mind spending extra to get the best comfort from Adidas, consider the Adidas Ultraboost 22.
Pureboost Go provides soft cushioning
Boost is a cushioning technology that is made from thousands of thermoplastic polyurethane pellets that have been amalgamated. The experience it gives is often compared to stepping on a cloud, a bouncy one. Here is how the wearers feel about it:
- "the only shoes that my feet never hurt"
- "most comfortable running/walking shoe I have ever had"
- "walking all day and my feet would never get tired"
Fits like a sock
A knitted fabric is used for the upper unit of the Adidas Pure Boost Go. This material is lightweight and stretchy, which creates a very foot-hugging feel. But it's not very accommodating for wider feet, unfortunately.
Most reviewers were delighted with the soft upper that never rubbed or irritated their feet. But on the downside, a few people did need a break-in period to get there.
Stitch reinforcements act as overlays. The midfoot, collar, and heel have these extra sutures, helping the lacing system when it comes to securing the foot in place. A thin lattice is printed onto the back of the façade. This seemingly graphical addition is meant to help in holding the heel in place and preventing accidental shoe removals.
Some people did find the alternative lacing system a bit fiddly. But once they found a way to adjust it, they were very pleased with the fit.
Pureboost Go is well-ventilated
The upper material is also breathable as it has many breathing pores that invite plenty of air into the foot chamber. The shoe can be comfortably worn in summer.
Reliable traction over surfaces
The grid-like rubber layer protects the midsole from abrasion and provides traction across various urban surfaces. It is also reported to be durable: "didn’t give out on me until after 9 months of very heavy use," says a reviewer.
Adidas Pureboost Go is stylish enough for casual wear
"They go with a LOT in my wardrobe," claims a wearer. Many other reviewers agreed that they initially bought this Adidas shoe because of its looks. The knit upper and visually appealing colorways have attracted repeated buyers.
