adidas adios Boost Sneak Peek

adidas adios Boost Men's Shoe

By now you’ve seen adidas’ new Boost midsole compound, designed to give runners a significant increase in energy return over a traditional EVA midsole while remaining soft and cushioned underfoot. Following through with the expansion of footwear options offering this new technology, adidas is introducing a racing shoe utilizing the Boost midsole, combining elements from the Energy Boost and the highly pedigreed adizero adios. It’s called the adios Boost. Coincidence? We think not.

With a soft yet responsive ride, and with cushioning that is designed to stay consistent as the miles rack up, the adios Boost sets itself up to be a strong choice for runners seeking a racing shoe for their next marathon. The adios Boost got its official launch at the Boston Marathon expo and over the weekend Emmanuel Mutai wore the shoe at the London marathon.

What to Watch For

  • Seamless Toebox: Heat transfered overlays over the toe-box limit seams for reduced friction on the foot.
  • Responsive Toe-Off: The adios Boost utilizes a full-length torsion system, delivering a snappy rebound for a propulsive toe-off.
  • High Traction Outsole: Featuring Continental rubber in key areas, this shoe will provide unrelenting grip on the road in both dry and wet conditions.
  • Midweight Specs: adidas claims weights of 8.0 oz for a Men’s size 9 and 6.6 oz for a Women’s 8, as well as a 10mm heel to toe offset.

  • Nate

    Are these going to feel softer than the current adios? And is Running Warehouse likely to get these in stock right away in October?

  • Taro


    Expect the adios Boost to have a softer underfoot feel while maintaining a responsive ride. As of now it looks like we’ll be getting these in mid-October, but it’s possible that may change closer to release date.

  • Matt

    Thanks for the question, Nate. We haven’t had a chance to try on this shoe yet, but given the Boost midsole compound, we expect it to have a softer feel than the current adios. We will be stocking this shoe at its October launch and it expect it by the middle of the month.

  • Ibon

    Do you know something about this new trail shoe?

    thanks in advance!

  • Matt

    We have not seen this shoe in catalogs or product presentations. Our guess is that it is a non-U.S. model that we will not be able to carry. Sorry we can’t be of more assistance!

  • Kevin

    Was hoping to get these for Chicago. When in October will these be available?

  • Matt

    We’re expecting them in stock around the middle of October, which unfortunately either is going to be after the race or isn’t going to give you enough time to break them in. If you really want them, it would be worth checking back in late September so we can have a more definitive in-stock date.
