The Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 5 is a freshly-updated pair of neutral racers that offers the same fast ride, but now comes with superior cushioning and improved traction in a lighter and thinner design. It features an advanced, energy-returning foam midsole for competitive performance, while the breathable mesh and microsuede overlays provide proper ventilation as you move.
Runners can also enjoy the best in fit and comfort in the Boston Boost 5 shoe, thanks to the extended Torsion Control system and Adiprene cushioning technology. Plus, with addition of the Continental rubber outsole, these running shoes can score more traction in both dry and wet conditions.
A closer look at the Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 5
Familiar visuals, innovative fit
Style-wise, the Boston Boost 5 sports some familiar visuals and can easily pass off as the Adios Boost 2’s twin – from the synthetic suede and open air-mesh, down to the individual patterns and shapes on the upper. But instead of simply being the latter’s doppelganger, these Bostons are made with smoother Tirrenina suede and Coolever mesh lining for better heat and moisture exchange between your feet and the outside air.
Another improvement over the Adios is the broader lacing width, wider insole, and thicker tongue mesh that significantly reduces the lacing pressure’s intensity. Furthermore, the mesh and collar lining are now backed with more foam, which works together with the molded heel counter to ensure a snug and comfortable feel.
Speaking of comfort, these Adidas runners come with the revolutionary Boost midsole cushioning technology. Unlike the usual foams, the Boston 5 features unique energy capsules that provide a softer, bouncier, and more responsive feel.
The energy-returning properties of these capsules work by recharging your steps, giving you relentless performance to go the extra mile. They also energize your stride independent from the temperature, thus ensuring a relaxed and cozy ride. And as expected from the company, there’s a sizable amount of bevel under the heel for smoother rear-foot strikes.
Extended torsion and cushioning
Another winning feature of the Adizero Boston Boost 5 is its mile-crunching Torsion support. The full-scale Torsion control system provides ample support for your feet, and lets them move in a natural torsional motion. As a result, you get better mid-foot and forefoot integrity, as well as improved stability and propulsion. This is perfectly complemented by the Adiprene cushioning that promotes forward momentum, enhances landing efficiency, and reduces strain on your joints.
Whether you’re a long-distance runner or a quick racer-trainer, you will appreciate the grippy traction offered by the Adizero Boston Boost 5. This is owed to the unique Continental Outsole compound that gives as much as 21% more traction in dry and up to 23% more traction in wet conditions.
With this feature, muddy roads and wintry weather won’t hold you down. The specially-engineered outsole also contributes to the shoe’s overall durability, so it can last any pace and distance.
