Adizero Boston - Conclusion Review

This conclusion review should have been made a few months back, or a few days after my break-in activity for the shoe. But I thought that the 3 days break-in review or a total mileage of 20 kilometers may not be enough for me to get to experience the full capability and features of the Adizero Boston. So I decided to extend my shoe review, up until I get to pound it for a decent distance.

As of this writing, the shoe have already completed a total mileage of 299.82 kilometers or 187.38 miles, which includes all my practice/training runs since January 18, 2010, and actual races ranging from 3km. up to 21km. distance. Now I'm also including my own observations and experience with the shoe as my feet pounds through the road together with the Adizero Boston.

Pros:
  1. Very lightweight
  2. Encourages mid-foot striking
  3. Easily dries up even indoors
  4. No tight feeling after an intense run
  5. No feet soreness after a long run up to 21km
  6. Doesn't stink, no bad odors after each run nor even after a long period of without washing
  7. Mesh construction keeps the air flowing inside while running
  8. A good running shoe for 15k distance or below (I manage to race it for up to 21k due to my light and small physique -- 110 lbs.)
  9. Outer sole doesn't easily get worned-out
  10. Soft inner-sole rubber, yet durable material and construction
Cons:
  1. Not recommended for heavy runners running longer than 10k distance
  2. Not enough reflectors for a safe evening run
Enjoy some photos of my runs with the Adizero Boston.

  2. Hi James, this is my first time to review a shoe, delayed nga itong conclusion eh 'coz I want to really experience the shoes' capabilities up to even more than the mileage limit that the vendor told me before.

  3. Atom! hows the stability of the shoe? takbo ka naman with us ulit! six:30-mattzz

  4. @Matt, Oh yeah, forgot to mention about the stability.

    I remember the shoe was meant for neutral arc foot, so for under or over pronators, the Boston might not be recommended for them.

    Sure I'll be running again with you. I heard from Adidas that there'll be an aNR at UP, who do you think will lead the group?

  9. @SprintingSwine, I commented about your Vomero shoe but it seems my comment can't make it through at wordpress. Your post was really funny. Keep on running.

    @MaryAnnRamos, you're welcome. See you on the road.

  10. Thanks for the review man. I like the fact that in encourages the midfoot striking. Also, I like the fact that you go back to this review after close to 200 miles. Sometimes, I have shoes were I can not give it a go until I have at least 100 miles in them. I am an ASICS guy, but now that I have lost over 50 pounds, I can branch out into other shoes, that are light weight, and not so stabilizing. One shoe (by ASICS, lol) that I am thinking of getting is the DS Trainer. As soon as I tried these suckers on, I wanted to run FAST! Thanks for the Adizero Review. I might have to give them a whirl.

  11. You're welcome Sir Kenley!

    I have not tried any other running shoes yet, except this one. But I'm also open to trying other shoes until I get to feel what really suits me. Some of my friends also suggests Mizuno for longer distance races. :)
