The first time I wore these shoes I thought, “the fit is fantastic”! These shoes make me feel fast. Whether it’s just mileage, a workout on the track, or a road race, the Boston Boost 6’s responsiveness and comfortable upper have made it a good standby in my shoe rotation.
Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 6 General Info
The Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 6 is the next generation of the Boston shoe series. This lightweight neutral trainer incorporates Adidas’ Boost foam technology and Continental rubber sole to create a fluid ride in a road running shoe.
This shoe runs true to size. The knit mesh upper is an updated feature that is breathable and creates a comfortable fit.
Since the mesh molds around your foot it easily expands and contracts with each step reducing the likelihood of blisters. At 7.7 ounces this shoe is on the light end of lightweight trainers.
They are great for intervals or tempos since they mimic the weight and neutral platform of a racer, a good trainer option for the runner who wants to feel like they’re racing when they hit the track.
Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 6 Sole Info
The sole of the Boston Boost 6 provides a lightweight responsive cushioning. It keeps the ride cushioned but fast. The Boost foam technology is designed according to Adidas to provide greater energy return and cushioning.
In addition, Adidas also claims that it is more temperature resistant making it adaptable to a range of climates and allowing it to consistently retain its responsiveness across a wide range of temperatures.
The cushion can be found primarily in the heel. This encourages the step forward onto the toe where the ball of your foot can really dig in and power your stride forward.
There is a lot of response in the toe box though so runners with sensitive feet are going to feel the ground a bit more.
Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 6 Upper Info
One of my favorite aspects of this shoe is the fit. With a regular width foot, it provides the perfect combination of snug and flex, not too tight or too loose.
It provides a wide enough platform for a regular sized foot while allowing a little breathing room for the toes to move.
The shoe has a knitted mesh upper which is flexible and breathable. It conforms to your foot size and flexes as you step to prevent blisters.
The tongue is light and my one complaint is that it folds over. Take some time adjusting when you first put the shoe on to get it just right or it will fold over and create a pressure point on the top of the foot.
Once fixed and laced up I did not have an issue with it while running though.
Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 6 Conclusions
With a modest amount of cushioning this shoe is designed for the neutral runner looking for a lightweight trainer. It is an excellent option for runners who like to feel the road beneath their feet.
With plenty of cushion in the heel and grip in the toes you will feel like the ground is just pulling you forward with each step.
The knit mesh upper makes this shoes a comfortable ride with plenty of mobility as the material flexes with the motion of your foot. If you like feeling like you’re racing when you run workouts this trainer is a good option for you.
We thank the nice people at Adidas for sending us a pair of Adizero Boston Boost 6 to test. This did not influence the outcome of the review, written after running more than 50 miles in them.
