Adidas Response Boost

rated 4 of 5 stars
photo: Adidas Response Boost trail running shoe

Really comfortable, but slippery. Don't risk your life with this shoe.


  • Ultralight
  • Comfortable cushion
  • Good tongue design


  • Slippery on hard wet surface
  • Too narrow for my size
  • Slippery on muddy trails

Be careful when jumping or running using this shoes on cliffs or steep ground, you might risk your life by using a slippery trail running shoes like this one.

My foot size is 43,5 (Europe). I usually wear 44,5 hiking shoes. But with this one, I use 45-1/3 for this shoe, and yet the toe box is still too narrow for me.

I don't even know why I bought this shoe in the first place. I think because I tried it using no socks and it feels really-really-soooo comfortable.

I've been using this shoe everyday and yet it is still too narrow. The shoe cannot be expanded nor adapt to my foot shape. I slipped a lot at the public toilet/bathroom while using this shoe.

I've used this shoe for a 2D1N trip on muddy and steep trails. I slipped a lot while ascending, and even more while descending. I don't recommend this shoe for extreme trail with lots of mud, big rocks terrain, or steep ground.

But if you're going to hike on dry/dusty trail, there's no issue with it.

The shoe is so light and comfortable it is like you aren't wearing a shoe. I like the sock-like upper which holds your feet in securely and gives a very stable feel. The continental outsole has excellent grip and the lugs are long enough so that the shoe is versatile and can be used on various types of trails.


  • Excellent fit
  • Grippy outsole
  • Versatile terrain uses


  • None

What amazed me about this shoe is its fit and that when wearing it, it doesn't feel like you are wearing a shoe. That is due to the sock-like upper. The lacing system locks in your feet and it doesn't require a lot of stopping and retying before and during a trail run.

If I had the choice of any trail running shoe at this point it would be the Boost Response. You've hit the mark, Adidas.
