Check your socks as well. I ran a HM on Saturday in nearly new shoes and socks. I could feel that one foot in particular was a bit tight acrossways after about eight miles. However, I was also conscious that the sock toes ends were slightly thicker and felt slightly caught on the nails. Afterwards I had the blackest toenail I've had for years, but I'm sure it was the sock, not the shoe.

(Snipped the end of the nail last night and let the blood out. Looking ok now.)

Any other views on Ultra Boost? I've never worn an Adidas running shoe and currently run in Nike Flyknit Lunar 2 and 3 but have been considering Ultra Boost. Cheers

I am now onto my third set of Adistar Boost (alongside my rotating set of Glide Boost 6)

The Adistar are great, right fit so go up half a size. Managed 500 miles from first pair, this pair almost done at around 400 and new set being rotated in.

My first runners were Adidas Supernova's - then moved onto Asics / Mizuno. Never had any problems with Adidas Boosts and you can pick up the cheaper versin at Start Fitness / Sportsshoes for £50/60 !!

I love the Ultra Boost...I have two pairs of Ultra Boost and two pairs of Adios Boost...I use the Ultra Boost for my long runs or my easy stuff and the Adios Boost for the speedier / shorter runs.

Can say I've personally experienced any of the issues you reported. Adidas trainers tend to be a little snug though so depending on the trainer you have to go between 1/2 to a full size up from your normal shoes. That said...I noted the Ultra Boost was a little narrow when bought brand new however after wearing for a couple of runs they soon stretched to match my foot nicely.

The real question is which tastes better, the marshmallows or the shoes?

Got something to say?
