The Adidas Adizero Boston 6 is a well-bolstered and strong shoe that’s flexible enough for different types of training runs and agile enough to be used for racing on long tracks and even marathons. If you’re struggling with your common racing flats because of your narrow foot, the Boston 6 is the perfect shoe for you with a buoyant midsole and a stylish design. All the shoes in the Boston Boost series of Adidas are amazingly fast and light. The Boston 6 has replaced Boston 5 of this series as the uptempo neutral shoes. It competes against similar shoes of different brands such as Hoka One One Clayton, New Balance Zante v2, and the Nike Lunar Tempo.
Adidas Adizero Boston 6 Performance
If you have a narrow foot, you’ll admire the snug fit style of the upper. The upper consists of a knit material that covers the toe box. Previously, it was a see-through mesh that covered the toe box, but now, it is a knit mesh and feels more comfortable. The Boston 5’s see-through mesh used to wrinkle up if it was used for long hours, but this one is amazing. There is an open mesh on the mid-foot area and it leads to the back and makes a supportive heel cup. The heel collar is lower, and there is no Achilles notch that used to irritate runners in the Boston 5. The upper style suits people with narrow feet because the toe box is not wide.
Coming to the sole of the shoe, the best feature of the Boston 6 is its midsole cushioning. The midsole is made up of TPU pellets that feel comfortable up to 500 miles and are one of the most durable EVA foams. The cushioning gives more safety and protection over rough surfaces and feels comfortable even on rocks. The outsole is made up of continental rubber that provides amazing road traction and grip on wet roads. The heel-to-toe transition is very smooth and allows the mid-foot and forefoot to move independently.
Adidas Adizero Boston 6 Design
The Boston 6 is a neutral and lightweight trainer that is perfect for racing. The micro-fit design of this shoe keeps the foot in place during the run. There is a seven-eyelet lace style that holds the tension properly. The lightweight toe box comprises of extensive perforations and smaller ventilation holes to make the foot breathable and dry. The midsole and outsole are very responsive and provide an amazing grip for running long distances.
Adidas Adizero Boston 6 Price
