Disclaimer: I received a pair of Adidas UltraBoost X shoes to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to find and write race reviews!
The first running shoe that I purchased at a running specialty store was an Asics shoe. Since 2012, I have mainly stuck with the same Asics Gel Nimbus shoe. (I may or may not currently have 6 pairs of Asics Gel Nimbus shoes in my closet.) I have had some minor issues with blistering, but have been overall satisfied with the shoe.
When presented with the opportunity to try out the new Adidas UltraBoost X shoes, I said, “Yes, please!” I wondered, could this shoe truly give me that extra boost of energy? Could this shoe provide the cushioning I enjoy with my Asics? How would it feel to wear a shoe that fits more like a sock?
Needless to say, I was quite excited when my shoes arrived!
