Really?! Oh dear. I thought the Supernova was just a different shoe. I'm OK for training shoes for a while; always keeping an eye out for a bargain I've got three pairs of v7 Glide on the go, with mileage ~1200, 700 and a new pair with one test run in them.
Cheers for the heads up anyway. Are the 8s pretty much the same as the 7s? I'll keep looking out for bargains...
Yes, I've tried the Ultra Boost, and the Supernova Glide, and the new Boston upper is similar to both, actually more like the Ultra Boost with the sock-like opening. I didn't get on with the Ultra Boost because they were too cushioned and unstable for me, but the Glide are my favourite training shoes.
The upper feels very different to me, and much better. I really like v5, have run a (PB) marathon and a few HMs, and the only minor niggle I had was a pinch-point at the bottom-left lace hole on the left foot. The whole upper on the new version feels much more slipper-like, the tongue is more comfortable, and it feels more plush all round. Despite all that it's also marginally lighter.
As far as I can tell the sole is identical. I've only done one test run so far and they felt incredibly springy, but I don't know how much of that was new-shoe syndrome, or just my feet feeling so damn comfortable.
Anyway, the main thing is I now have a pair of red adios for London
Definitely the fastest colour! Good luck. I did PB a marathon in Adios but found the tarmac feeling pretty damn hard after 30km and my calves were battered. I think Bostons hit the sweet spot for the full distance, for me.
Looks like I got lucky when keeping an eye on new year price drops, as I picked up a pair of Boston Boost 6 from Runners Need before they ran out of size 10.5. Are you a 10 or 10.5 by any chance?
It did strike me that stocks were pretty low all over. Maybe they're more popular than Adidas bargained for?? I've got no idea if any new version is due, v6 only came out last year didn't it? Anyway, Spring marathon shoes sorted. My Adios are also getting a bit tired after 300+ miles of mainly racing, but I'm considering replacing them with the lighter Takumi Ren, which have the added bonus of a cool Japanese name.
