When we tested the Adidas Adios Boost earlier this year, we were blown away by its speed and comfort.
Much of that positivity stemmed from the ‘Boost’ midsole, where blown-up thermoplastic polyurethane replaced standard EVA, cutting weight but retaining comfort.
Disappointingly, the Supernova Sequence Boost (304g) doesn’t deliver the same sense of freedom. Here moulded plastic overlays begin with a heel cage and flow round to the tongue before lacing together.
It’s designed for stability, but actually slows things down. It also lacks the same level of rebound force unleashed by the Boost, we suspect due to the hard plastic ‘Torsion System’ in the outsole.
Overall, the ride is okay… which isn’t what you want for £120. We’d also go half-a-size bigger than norm as Adidas shoes can be a touch small.
