Adi­das: adios Boost – £119.99 (adi­das.co.uk)

The adios re­mains the choice of some of the world’s best marathon­ers and, af­ter run­ning in the shoes, you’ll quickly see why. Us­ing their Boost mid­sole cush­ion­ing in con­junc­tion with a full length of CM-EVA, the brand have man­aged to com­bine the soft cush­ion­ing and en­ergy re­turn prop­er­ties into a light­weight shoe that pro­vides a re­spon­sive toe-off, per­fect for rac­ing.

The Tor­sion sys­tem in the mid­foot of the shoe cre­ates a lit­tle sta­bil­ity and the stretch-web out­sole in the fore­foot gives a toe-off that com­pli­ments the nat­u­rally ‘springy’ prop­er­ties of the Boost ma­te­rial.

The shoe’s up­per is a more tra­di­tional, ‘clas­sic racer’ look and feel; light­weight breath­able mesh with syn­thetic suede and the three stripes to give some sup­port around the foot. It’s a shoe made in the clas­sic form of a road racer – light, fast and re­spon­sive.
