adidas Supernova Glide Boost Review
I'll admit, for some reason I was expecting these to be more like the adidas Energy Boost shoes rather than like the Supernova Glide 5. The Energy Boost were so incredibly cushioned that I was surprised at the difference when I put the Supernova Glide Boost on. These are much firmer. Don't get me wrong, they're still comfortable and still cushioned, but don't expect the marshmallow-like feeling of the Energy Boost. I think the Supernova is a good looking shoe and I loved the colorway of the Supernova Glide Boost: black and white with Bahia pink insoles, laces and accents. The men's Supernova Glide Boost shoe comes in black and white with solar blue accents.

While these are firmer, they still have that great energy responsiveness that Boost is known for. I ran in them outside and inside on a treadmill. I figured with winter coming up it would be good to test in both conditions. I don't usually like running on a treadmill but these Supernova Glide Boost shoes actually made it better. I tend to get bored (and, therefore, tired) faster on a treadmill but these kept my feet and legs energized through my entire run: They made a significant difference. Outside, the ride felt smooth and responsive. In cold weather, the cushioning didn't firm up a crazy amount like regular EVA shoes. adidas has always claimed that Boost is better in cold and warm weather and it was nice to actually experience this first hand. However, it wasn't freezing out so I'm not sure how cold it has to get before you feel a significant difference.

One of my favorite things about these shoes was the fit. These shoes fit perfectly. It's a slim fit and my feet felt secure, without ever feeling the least bit tight. I tend to need shoes with a wider toe box so I often have a hard time finding shoes that feel perfect, but, thanks to the smaller tongue and the seamless mesh in the forefoot, these were perfect.

While the Supernova Glide Boost is a neutral shoe, it is firm enough for mild over pronators, something we noticed in the Supernova Glide 5. Yet, the Boost cushioning does give it that extra bit of cushioning (without being too soft) and more energy return.

The soles are the same Continental rubber that we saw in the Supernova Glide 5. The Continental rubber offers more traction on both dry and wet surfaces. And, while these soles do add a little weight, they are also pretty durable.

Overall, amazing fit, extremely comfortable, great energy return, and a smooth and responsive ride. The more I ran in these shoes, the more I liked them. I think the firmer feeling might please some higher mileage runners and while these aren't exactly light, they can serve as great trainers. Personally, I would happily add these into my regular training rotation. If you're looking for a firm, responsive, durable, comfortable shoe with some energy return than you won't be disappointed with these adidas Supernova Glide 6 Boost shoes.
