adidas invited me to view their range for next year, so I put a few pics up of the adizero's in case anyone's interested. Google for Adidas 2013 Range and you should find it. I have no affiliation with adidas and did a 10mile this morning in Saucony, Nike, adidas, Gore and Ronhill, so I think I'm inside the T&Cs (I emailed support to ask, but didn't get a reply). I'll be adding a page for the adipures soon.

Mmmm yellow.

I'm currently looking for a good alternative to the now out of production Bostons.  Hopefully they won't insist on making the ladies version bright pink again.  Everyone knows orange is best.

What does the "pirate" symbol next to your name mean Ultra cougie?

Well after a green pair and a bright orange pair the white bostons look quite normal, might have to go for the Adios as I like the yellow

Thanks Charles for the headsup

It`s just a shame that they seem very hard to come by in any running shops. I`m nervous to order online as i`ve heard they are quite narrow.

Does anyone else struggle to buy them "off the shelf" rather than online?

Hi Millsy I brought my first pair from a shop but since then ordered on-line. I did find I had to go up a half a size in adidas. My former mizuno's were 7.5 but the adidas are size 8. I can't help you on the narrowness as I think my feet are quite narrow anyway.

 I hope this helps

Charles - look at the triathlon section or google pirate ship of fools.
It's basically a group of RW runners who wanted to have a go at long distance triathlon.

I love my Orange Adios, but the yellow does look cool too for that shoe. I'll be using them for a 20 mile in the morning (start at 5.30 head torch on charge). I'm just glad they only changed the colour and not the design.

I popped in to Runners Need at lunchtime and they had (at least) the new Adios, Feather and Tempo XT.  The colour combos are, er, interesting, although I'm not overly impressed by the finish.  Looks like they've given some blue trainers and some fluoro-orange spray cans to a bunch of chimps and left them in a room to get on with it.

embargo is lifted, so here's my stuff from a while back about the new adidas boost tech. The shoe reveal is on the 17th Feb. http://gearselected.com/adidas-energy-boost-shoe-alternative-to-eva-midsole/

And my thoughts on the shoe tech out on the road, comparing boost to EVA and Adiprene+: http://gearselected.com/on-the-road-adidas-boost-vs-eva-vs-adiprene/

I went a whole size up in Adizeros. Love em.

Hey Charles - thanks for the link and the write-up of the Boost - to be honest I was a little dubious on the idea of this shoe for the average runner, given (as you say) some people finding the different feel of the midsole harsh / awkward.  Glad to hear Adidas are soon rolling out more racing focused models - I love my adizero Manas, wouldn't want to move to anything more chunky feeling!
