This is where blogs like yours could really fill a deficiency of magazine reviews: How long do the damn shoes last?I love the NB 1400s, v. 1 a little more than v. 2. But their durability is lacking (outsole wear and midsole compression). So in a year¡¯s time, would buying one pair of Adios Boost work out to being better financially than two pairs of the 1400?
Meb runs marathons in the GoRun Speed, not the GoRun. He helped design it from the ground up and it¡¯s a stiff distance racing shoe just like the adios Boost and NB1400. Longitudinal stiffness is a characteristic you¡¯ll find in almost any racing shoe. Elites may be sponsored by Nike and Adidas, but they could choose any shoe made by these companies. The elite Kenyans aren¡¯t racing in the Adidas Gazelle, they almost all use the Adios.

Anyway, I¡¯m still a sucker for new shoe technology, and I was first sent a pair of the Energy Boost shoes by adidas. They didn¡¯t work out for me at all. The midfoot was very tight, and there was way too much sole flare around the heel. The shoe got in the way of my stride big-time, and I only took them on a few runs. That being said, the Boost material did indeed feel different, particularly if I forced a pronounced heel strike. Very bouncy.
It¡¯s a great question, and I¡¯m not sure of the answer. I do tend to land slightly back toward the heel most of the time. There are definitely some higher drop shoes that don¡¯t work well for me, the Sayonara being a good example, and I have a hard time in more traditional shoes. I have the new Saucony Guide and I¡¯d include that there. So, there¡¯s definitely more to it than just drop, and using drop alone to pick shoes is not always a great idea I don¡¯t think.
Adidas ZX 850 Homme Pas Cher Boston runs differently. Considerably softer particularly heel as there is no torsion support. Yes more and longer EVA up front so softer feeling forefoot. Like the forefoot feel for a trainer/racer. Heel mushier thsn adios or Energy. My least favorite boost shoe, sitting somewhat uneasily between a trainer and a light trainer/racer I have used a durometer device to measure various midsole hardnesses and Boost is the softest by far. What makes Boost work so well or not is how it is combined with the torsion plastic an Adidas ZX Flux Homme Pas Cher d full coverage Continental rubber outsoles.
