Customer Reviews

Comments: Adidas Supernova Glide 6 Boost is a great shoe. True to size, wider toe box, very comfortable. I have worn just about every type of neutral shoe out there, and these are my favorite. There is no part of the run, fast or slow that I even think about my feet or stride. The rubber on the bottom gives amazing traction, even on wet roads. Do not really feel any "springy boost" as the marketing suggests, but it is very cushioned. Not a soft shoe, but not stiff, just right. The only drawback is the weight. On my slight frame I do notice the weight. 5'7", 130 lbs, 16:30 5K. For faster paced runs, tempos, repeats, and longer races I use the Adidas Boston 5 Boost. The Boston 5 is basically a lighter version of the Glide 6. Boston 5 runs half size small, so order larger than normal.

Comments: I've had these for about a month now and I think this is one of the best shoes I've ever owned. They fit true to size when compared to my Saucony Guides, Nike Pegasus, and Pearl Izumi trail shoes, though maybe a touch narrower in the toe. The heal-toe transition is great and the cushioning is amazing and not a gimmick. It is really impressive, somehow feeling firmer at speed and softer at slow pace. They are definitely a neutral shoe but I've taken them up to 12+ miles with zero stability problems and they feel fast during tempo work. That's a rare combo! Very, very happy with Glide 6 Boost.

Comments: I have about 150 miles on them so far. Great heel toe transition, awesome cushioning. It's the rare shoe that I look forward to putting on and feels great doing distance or tempo work, like a no-gimmick, old-school trainer only with an uber-insole. The size 11 in these is the same as my Nike, Brooks, Pearl Izumis, and Saucony, but a tad narrower. Very happy with this purchase.

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.
