Adidas Adizero Boston 5 women’s running shoes review
There seems to be a trend among shoe manufacturers to equate eye-popping colour with performance, but don’t let the understated looks of the Boston 5 fool you (although a neon-soled version is available).
This is a shoe that combines speed and comfort in a lightweight (210g) package that made every step of our 10k test loop feel like we were racing at our hardest – yet enjoying it at the same time.
That’s thanks to Adidas’s Boost technology in the sole, whereby tiny energy capsules are designed to return energy to you, keeping legs fresh and the pace high.
The Coolever mesh upper is light and super-breathable (hold these up and you can see daylight through them), while the Continental rubber outsole keeps them grippy in the wet. One note: go up a half-size, as sizing is pretty stingy.
Verdict: Not tri-specific, but for fast efforts these are the best we’ve tried, 92%
