Bought a pair of these last week after gait analysis and recommendation at Sweat shop.
I have worn them 3 times now and first impressions are very good. Comfortable and fast. no blisters or black nails!
Just wondered if anyone else is using these and what the long term prognosis is for mileage/usage etc. I have some Adidas Supernova sequence 3 as well for long runs and bread and buttter running.
11 stone fore foot runner, fairly neutral but left foot slightly over pronates.
Really impressed so far but worried how often to use them! Maybe save for races and 'speed work'
I had some Nike Lunar glides 2 before which were giving me black nails and blisters.
Sorry DM, I can't help either.
I've fancied a pair of Adizeros but don't know the difference between them all. Which are the fastest / minimalist ones and which have the most padding? Anyone know?
I believe that the Tempo's are the one shoe in the Adizero range that Joe averages can use. They are a very light racing shoe but still have some stability properties and plenty of fore foot cushioning. They are ok for mild pronators.
The other shoes in the range i.e Boston etc are more geared towards elite athletes and efficient neutral light runners as they have minimal cushioning and support.
That said the tempo feels pretty stripped down.
Just bought my second pair..very red! Racer trainer stock, a la Asics DS Trainer - perfect for 10 mile races and above for people like me..6 foot 2, 12 stone.
Hopefully will help me to a half PB at Bedford in December.....
Really rate the Adidas Boston 3 shoe - extremely versatile shoe and you get plenty of miles out of them. They could be used from 5k up to full marathon IMO. Word of caution, go 0.5 of a size up if you buy them. They come up small. I wore Boston 3s for Bournemouth Marathon and they were excellent. They gave me adequate support all race. I had no niggles or anything afterwards. Hard to explain, but I think I run better in them than almost any other shoe. They are also super grippy in the wet thanks to Continental grips. I am going to stock up with a few more pairs before they become obsolete. Hate it when you can't get your hands on shoes you love anymore. for the record, I tried the Adios 2 but did not like them compared to Boston 3s. They felt very stiff and didn't offer much support. Would not wear them for any longer than 5 miles.
I was looking at the adios 2 or the adios boost, anyone currently wearing any of these? Is there much difference between them and the tempos?
Bostons will be getting Boost technology in September so will be a very different shoe. Adios is being discontinued from July, but the Adios Boost will continue. I'm racing and doing speedwork in Adios Boost, fantastic shoe, decent amount of cushioning for such a lightweight shoe
