Customer Reviews

Comments: Been wearing supernova glides for 3 years now, bought these and couldn't even fit my foot in them (same size) - comparing them side by side, the SG6 is over 1/2" shorter than the SG4 and SG5...

Comments: Adidas Supernova Glide 6 Boost are the best running shoes I've ever owned. I've been wearing this model since it first released last fall (just ordered a new pair). In my opinion there is no better combination of cushioning and response in a distance shoe. There has been a lot of hype around Adidas Boost technology, and while it won't magically make you a better runner, it is extremely comfortable and springy even with the EVA foam layer on top. What sets this model apart from the Energy Boost and Energy Boost 2 is the comfortable upper. I recently tried the EB 2 and I just didn't like the snug narrow fit of the techfit upper. If you prefer a little room in the toebox, the Glide 6 is definitely a better option than the Energy Boost 2. I was never an Adidas guy for running shoes but this model has converted me. It's that good.
