Expensive road racer that is worth considering mainly for its very grippy Continental outer sole.

- the Continental "black chili" outer sole provides by far the best grip on tarmac in all conditions of any shoe I've ever raced on (20+ years!).
- useable for all distances from 5km to at least 1/2 marathon.
- good durability: raced 50+ races in a year and shoes & outer sole are still nowhere near the end of their life cycle
- price
- not absolute lightest racers around
My "staple race" is the Cannon Hill 5k parkrun which is fully on tarmac but includes a number of tight turns. Whereas on other racers I've had occasional hairy moments and even a fall especially in wintery conditions, with the Adizero Adios Boost I've never felt close to the limit and corner "on rails" at full speed.

I don't know how important the "boost" is compared to the standard Adizero Adios's as I haven't tried them.

For me the fit and weight are fine, and I see no reason to look for other road racers any time soon.
Given how long they've already lasted and probably will last, the price, though steep for racers, is not too exorbitant.

I would recommend them for any road race especially where grip may be an issue.
