So what's the deal with these? I've seen men AND women SWEAR by Adidas Ultra boosts for running. Are they really that good? I'm coming from Nike Air Torch 4's, and from Reebok Grasse Road 2.0

They're more of a stylish shoe to me that people wear casually that you can also use for some running. Don't get me wrong though. There are some people who really love using them for running.

Personally, though I prefer a lot the Asics shoes for running. There are some versions of ultraboosts that are more suited to running like the Ultraboost PB.

I have to agree with you on this. I've been running with ASICS for years and bought my first pair of Ultraboosts and weren't impressed, although they look very stylish. ASICS are still more comfortable for daily jogs.

If you are buying this mainly for running, I don't think these would be that great for it. Don't get me wrong, I have run with these and they are comfortable, but they will not last long if being used for that only. Like others have said, they are more stylish looking and very comfortable because of it being lighter on weight. I highly recommend these for people who walk and stand a lot at work as it makes a huge difference. Also, a pair last me a few years wearing it daily along with some running.

They are absolutely that good. I work 60-80 hours in hospitals weekly and refuse to wear any other shoes. The amount of cushioning and arch support I get from them, and the length of time they last (I usually crush two pairs per year walking on em all day), makes this the best investment for me, by far. Has beaten other shoes + orthotics, far more expensive orthotic shoes, anything. Wearing these even fixed my back.

I say this without a word of a lie lol. Usually I can't even be bothered to post on the forums bc I'm so tired (working rn) but in this case I post in case a fellow hospital worker sees it hah.

Caveat - I def don't workout in em. More of a lifestyle/work beater shoe. in fact I saw this post as I always have alerts set for ultraboost so I can nab more work shoes.

I'm the opposite....I've been told ASICS are the best for running. I bought 2 different pairs after using the adidas kanadia all my life for running+everyday and over the course of the last 2 years I couldn't stand the ASICS. ASICS are a thicker, heavier shoe. So if you're looking for longevity I'd have to say ASICS probably will last longer and is more durable. But if you're looking for shoes that are so comfortable and lightweight that you can't feel on your foot and don't mind replacing them every year then adidas is the way to go. I love ultraboosts and I will never go back to anything else (maybe if I can find the old style kanadia again I would get those). Ultraboost also look better IMO.

The ultraboost's are nice looking and they feel great but they are way to soft for me. I prefer a shoe that has is a bit more firm than soft. So I guess it depends how you like your running shoes. I have found the Supernova to be a good fitting shoe for most of my runs, they have a bit of the boost material in them to give it a bit of softness but still feel firm enough for my personal tastes. I have never liked any nike running shoe I tried to train in and normally love ASICS but they get destroyed by my normal training runs and I have to replace them far more often than once every 4months or so.

My opinion on running shoes... when it is a good deal and you have never tried them just BUY IT! You might find something that works really well for you and if you don't like it you have have a pair of casual shoes.

Adidas quality has been hit or miss and they do not have good customer service when it comes to warranty. The glue has started to separate from my ultra boost only after a few months.

I started working out and decided to buy some 'good' shoes to jog in. I went to a running store and they pointed me to Ghosts, I bought and they hurt my feet. Then Covid happened and stores closed and I couldn't return, but that is a different story. I got some Ultraboosts and Nano 9s - For me the Ultraboosts are a good all around shoe. They are light and feel great. I don't love the colors I got but I'm a mid 40s divorcee with kids so I'm not really trying to impress anyone with my fashion sense. My kid loves his Ultraboosts and is the reason I got them. The ones I bought have been nice but the sole is starting to crack across the ball of the foot as it has worn thin. I did pull the trigger on the NMDs from here a week ago and will give those a shot, but I might pick these up too for rotating. I kind of like the color but no idea what it would go with (from a matching sense)

These are not designed for serious active people/runners. More for athleisure/lifestyle. Doesn't mean the boost is not good for running, and also doesn't mean that there aren't serious/famous runners that swear by these. So YMMV as to how you feel about them.

Here are some subjective facts about the designs of these, and my personal take.

The boost material is bouncy, long lasting, but heavy, and can feel mushy to some (especially toward the end of long runs as the boost material gets warmer).

The primeknit upper is stretchy, comfy but not the most secure or controlled. So they are not good on uneven surfaces, situations that need stability, or for activities that require flexibility/quick change in directions/lateral moves. Long, straight road runs are fine. Walking around is fine. If I'm running on unfamiliar roads, or exploring an unfamiliar city, I would not wear my UB20s.

The energy return decreases as the boost material heats up, so by 30+ minutes, you will gradually feel less bounce and increased mushiness, and it gets rather tiring by the hour mark. This depends on weight/stride of the person but more or less true due to the technology behind boost. Benefit is it recovers fast and retains bounciness longer than other midsoles.

I personally much prefer Nike Pegasus, React Infinity (also very bouncy but more stable than UB), Brooks Glycerin, ASICS Keyano, and even other shoes from Adidas that uses boost but mixed with other midsole materials, like Pureboost, Adizero, and some of there non-boost shoes like Alphabounce....for a more consistent/trustworthy performance.

I'd wear my UBs more for styling, matching color, short walks/runs.

I'd not wear these for running on treadmill or for use in the gym.
