A close-fitting, lighter-weight shoe geared toward distance runs, the adidas adizero Boston 3 features moderate cushioning with a semi-firm ride.



Worthy of its marathon name, the adidas adizero Boston 3 is the perfect choice for a light, long distance trainer. Adidas has lowered the stack height, bringing you lower to the ground to feel the road every step of the way. The decoupled heel adapts to the ground for a smooth ride, and the forefoot springs back with plenty of energy return at toe off.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Took a chance and was Not Disappointed!!! I had tried Adidas shoes on and knew I liked the weightless feel but I had never run in them.  I took a chance and I'm glad I did.  These are so comfortable, no blisters, and plenty of cushion.  I'm training for a half marathon, running a little more each week and loving my Boston 3!! My foot runs narrow so Im not sure how a wide foot would feel but I'm very happy!
