Adidas definitely advertised the UBs as the best running shoe ever created and many UB lovers will fight you to prove it laugh.gif


In all seriousness, I am sure UBs work as great running shoe for others but it is not the best, far from it.

And as far as buyers of both UBs and Racers, I don't have the stats to prove it but I think it is safe to say that more than 90% of the pairs bought are worn casually.


If you plan to run a marathon, I'd definitely give UB a few test runs because you might want to cut off your feet halfway through a marathon if it is the first time you are running in the shoes and that could go for any shoes.

I wouldn't take anybodies word on it no matter who they are because everyone's feet are different, you got to experience it yourself and your body will tell you exactly what you need to know.

Why do people have to fight over which shoe is better? Flyknit racers suit the needs of a different type of runner than ultra boosts do. Being mad about what someone else wants to wear casually makes even less sense.

FKRs may be better to run in than UBs, but ... to be honest, you're probably not going to see a super serious runner in either. That's more Asics, Brooks, Newton, Saucony, Mizuno etc territory. Can't tell you I've seen any buddies that run marathons or triathlon or people in general in those types of races in either model . Strong chance if they're a professional and they are, they're being sponsored. May not have been intended to be lifestyle shoes by either brand, but that's what they've become for the vast majority.

I have plenty(at least 30+ of each) of both model and UBs are more comfortable, but I wear FKRs more.

@npatricktx no matter where you bought them from, you can get a voucher from Nike for $150 (assuming it's been past 30 days). Go to nikeclaims.com and fill out the info.

Correction, I personally think they're horrific to look at but hey, if that's the look you're going for, by all means you do you. But I swear, people wear Jordans, people will instantly ask, how do they compare to UBs? Wear Common Projects? They're not UBs. You run in brooks? How do they compare to UBs? If you stand around all day, than UBs are infinitely better than racers. Like dude, wtf, I got a desk job, I don't need to think about how my feet should be stepping on clouds. You got flip flops? You should get ones with ultra boosts. I'm wearing racers, why the eff do I have to explain why I like them versus UBs? Every YouTube running shoe review gets bombarded by UB comments.

Yes, I've used Nike claims before. You have 2 years from the production date for any flaws that happen...

Going to make a claim today.

I have plenty(at least 30+ of each) of both model and UBs are more comfortable, but I wear FKRs more.

I've run in the UBs, and I only lasted one mile in them. I'll never do that again. However, as a casual shoe, I won't deny their A1 comfort.

I posted this in the Peg thread re: the same topic...

"I can hang with the lead pacers at local running store/city clubs. Yeah, I noticed most don't wear Nike. For me, they work well for me, specifically the Flyknit Racer or any forefoot Zoomed shoe. At the same time, I won't spend over $90 for a shoe I'm just going to get miles out of. I consider myself a casual runner as well, but I've got "serious" runner goals if that makes sense lol

Short Term:
- Average a sub7/mile/min 100mi month. I'm on good "pace" right now at 6'50" for 47mi.

Intermediate Term:
- 9mi in an hour. At the pace i'm going now, I hope I can get it done this year.

Long Term:
- BQ. My first race ever was a full. I finished at 3:30 (in Nikes) with bad form and all lol. Since then, I feel like I've improved on my form, breathing and efficiency so much."

I own other running brands and am a fan of them too; Newton Distance 3s and 4s, Hoka Clifton 1 and 3s, adizero adios3s, Saucony Triumph Isos, etc. However, I've had my best runs in Nike, specifically the FKRs.

Point is... There are other options other than just Nike. Whatever works the BEST for YOU may not work as well for someone else. Once you find that shoe, stock up lol

I agree with you. My point as you already pointed out, is that most, not all serious don't run in either FKRs or UBs. But to be honest, it was more geared toward the UB comment. As you mentioned, UBs are comfortable if not the most comfortable in casual use, but ... I'm sure a vast majority of people making these how great they are claims or spout how much tech is in them, are probably are using their UBs to walk from the fridge to the couch. Crap just makes me laugh because they make excuses to justify their purchase. Just say you like the look or feel and be done with it. Instead, they like to throw comments that they made with real bits of gold, or whatever lame it excuse it was, as the crux of their decision.

If you care/follow Solereview:

 

I'd echo the review. The heel is too high and you sink into the cushion too much. 81/100

https://www.solereview.com/adidas-ultra-boost-review/

 

 

 

With that said, the Supernova Glide Boost 8 got 2016 shoe of the year. 96/100

Nike Sweeps Top 3 Spots in Both Men's and Women's Boston Marathon Divisions


Er, at least adidas sponsored the event, right?


Kenyan runners Geoffrey Kirui and Edna Kiplagat each finished first in the men’s and women’s divisions at the 121st edition of the Boston Marathon this morning. With a time of 2 hours, 9 minutes and 37 seconds, Kirui held off American Olympian Galen Rupp by 21 seconds and Japan’s Suguru Osako by another 30. Kiplagat edged out second place, Rose Chelimo of Bahrain, by a minute to finish at 2 hours, 21 minutes and 52 seconds. American Jordan Hasay rounded out the top three for the ladies.

At an event like the Boston Marathon where everyone seems to walk away as a winner in their own personal glory, adidas just may have been today’s biggest loser. As a longtime feature sponsor of the race, the Three Stripes did not have a single athlete in the top three for either of the men’s and women’s divisions.

We at HYPEBEAST constantly debate ‘Nike versus adidas,’ just as you do in our comments section. adidas has made some serious headway in market share over the last few years due to its strategic lifestyle collaborations, resulting in slew of accolades and “Best of” awards, however Nike seems to still dominate the world of athletic footwear. What do ya’ll think: is Nike still the industry benchmark, and if so, how can adidas compete?

This reminds us of another adidas fail from earlier in the year. The brand offered an island to anyone who broke the 40-yard dash in a pair of adidas cleats at this year’s NFL Combine. To everyone’s surprise, John Ross beat the record by two-tenths, however he did so in a pair of Nikes.

Nike (NKE)  emerged as the real winner of the 2017 Boston Marathon on Monday, despite falling short on its one key goal.

In the marathon's 121st year, Nike sponsored athlete Geoffrey Kirui of Kenya won the men's foot race with a time of 2:09:37 and Edna Kiplagat, also of Kenya, won the women's foot race in 2:21:52, according to Footwear News.
 

Nike said the athletes were sporting sneakers from its line of Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite, which will be released to select retailers on June 8.
