    the comfort level between these and the flux is not even close. however, the flux is a much better looking and versatile shoe. (and cheaper)

    these are an ideal walking/everyday gym shoe.

    I grabbed a pair of the black ones today after work. They're super comfortable. They feel better than my roshes and maybe my flyknit lunar 1s as well (at least from a cushioning standpoint). I'll echo the other posts saying that these are just for lifestyle/streewear. If anyone is looking for a pair of very comfortable everyday shoes, I'd recommend these.

    I went tts, btw. For reference, here are sizes I wear in other shoes.
    Lebron X - 12
    XX8 SE - 11.5
    Flyknit one - 12
    Roshe - 11.5
    Kobe 8 - 12

    Hope this helps.

    Nice. thanks!

    Anyone else got a review or experience they want to share?


    So far:

    -Really comfortable
    -Not for running, casual wear only


    Hows the sizing, go with your regular Adidas size? How light is it compared to Roshes? Flyknits?

    Tried these on yesterday. The boost foam is so comfortable. Can't even compare to the Roshes. Adidas continues to put out consistent releases. Going to try to get the primeknit versions.

    I think that this is a better comparison. Articles keep saying it's like the flyknit free run, but I'd compare them more towards a better-cushioned roshe. The upper can be compared to the flyknit because of it's flexibility/comfort, but the midsole is completely different. Free midsole is a minimalist design not focused on cushioning. Pure boost midsole looks almost identical to roshe and is almost solely focused on comfort. Flyknit free is geared toward performance and pure boost is for casual wear. Quite different shoes, imo.

    I am not sure they will, not sure if they can actually. I believe they are still in a legal battle about the PrimKnit a rip-off of the FlyKnit so sale isn't allowed in the US until that case is settled.

    These fit TTS btw. You can go .5 up but wouldn't recommend going .5 down

    ^^ Those look great, but $280 is a steep price tag, especially when the upper is mostly just mesh.
