adidas Wear-Test: The Cool Boston

I have been wearing adidas Women Boston for KLIM full marathon trainings for 1 month, total mileage for this pair of shoe is about 150km and the longest distance is 30km. Well, it is still at the very best condition. Every runner has his/her own foot shape, running style, preference events, etc… For me, since I’m using it for full marathon, I will rate and compare it according to full marathon situation.

What’s Good
1. Light weight
Adidas Women Boston is as light as a racing shoe, you hardly feel it when your foot take off from the ground.

2. Excellent cooling system
With the design of ClimaCool®, the air is easily goes in to the shoe and released the heat.

3. Flexible
The base of the shoe is very flexible and allows curving for striking.


What’s To Be Improved
1. Cushioning
The cushioning is designed just at the acceptable level because there is absorber at the heel called adiPRENE®, and adiPRENE®+ at the forefoot.

2. Stability
The shoe is lack of stability since as I described in the advantages, it is very flexible. However this may hurt the foot for those runners who like to twist so much at the ankle.


Overall:
It is a good running shoe for (according to the order)
No. 1: Track / Sprint event
No. 2: Short distance race (<=10km)
No. 3: Endurance long distance for light weight runner
