For those questioning how long the Boost foam will last...

 

An employee at adidas ran 1000 miles in his Energy Boosts...after those 1000 miles they tested his shoe against a Brooks, Nike, and Asics shoe...the Energy Boost tested better than those three (after 1000 miles) than a brand new pair of those brands in terms of durability, support, energy return, etc...

the tread on the bottom of the soles lasted that long after that much heavy use? wow. Running to my local FTL to cop now lol.

post #243 of 163839
^no, he's talking about the Energy Boost, which is actually made for running. I doubt that the Pure Boosts would hold up that well.
post #244 of 163839

oh yea you're right. the soles on the energy boosts are most definitely made for that kind of abuse. i guess i'm going to have to cop both and find out. I saw the energy boosts on sale at the adidas outlet for $110 but I wonder if they will go any lower than that.

You can't lose with either model in my opinion, just wanted to make sure you knew before you went and copped em!

My roshes only last about 100 miles. Lol

Some new colorways -- dubbed the Pure Boost Reveal

 

http://www.footlocker.com/product/model:223588/sku:34869/adidas-pure-boost-reveal-mens/black/white/?cm=brandadidas

 

Still no restrictions so get these with the bday coupon if you're in for a pair (or more)

If you go back a few pages you will see me reference a shoe that is even more comfortable than the OG Pure Boost...these are it. That reveal type mesh upper is SO soft and comfortable.

Thanks for the response -- I was wondering if it was different than the original pure boost upper (which is comfortable in itself already).  I thought these looked a little different.  Nice :smokin

So I just ordered a pair of the reveals. I see according to the FTL site that the reveal is SLIGHTLY heavier than the original pure boost. Is it safe to assume that the mesh upper of the reveal version will be more durable? Will the upper offer the same amount of stretch as original pure boost?

 

I'll post some pics as soon as I receive them since none of the stores around me have these in stock.

I don't know about more durable...probably about the same.

 

And from what I have seen/experienced, the reveal mesh stretches more than the Pure Boost does.

How about more colorways? I'd be down to try them in something more tonal.

I've tried to buy/order these several times....Cant find a 13(looked online and In-Store search). Does anyone know if they are made in a 13?  These are killing Roshe's in comfort, found out after squeezing into a 12 and getting a few steps around Footlocker

Man... I haven't come across a 13, good question.  My advice would be to chat/email adidas directly.  That'd be the quickest way to find out if/where you might be able to get a 13.

I'm 99.9% sure a size 13 wasn't made. Every single Foot Locker I have gone to on my store visits don't have anything larger than a 12.5...so you might want to give that a shot.

I appreciate the fast replies! Thanks. Probably going to have to get 12.5's for occasional wear

post #264 of 163839
With the Primeboost getting a US release date, does that mean the lawsuit from Nike was settled or dropped?

And does that mean we will see the Pure Boost with Primeknit uppers more readily available and soon?

I know... want that pair badly, but don't think I can do $200.  Can't really believe I'm sayin it but at about 170 or under I'd go for it

post #268 of 163839

@iks mod Even at $170 its still hefty, maybe around $150 + discounts + coupons would be nice :p

Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol on a cotton ball.  The foam is pretty durable and it's not painted so really anything should be okay.  Water works fine if they aren't too dirty as well.
