Summary

The Adidas Terrex Boost trail running shoes are a well-made shoe for a narrow foot. They have a rugged lugged sole made of Continental tire rubber and have a unique midsole consisting of thousands of thermoplastic polyurethane balls for improved cushioning.

Pros

  • Aggressive sole
  • Stable
  • Breathable upper

Cons

  • Narrow
  • Uppers allow in a lot of dust

Though I am not a competitive mountain runner, the Adidas Terrex Boost shoes were tested on local mountain trails. During several days of trail jogging and fast hiking the Terrex Boost were put to the test.

Slipping the shoes on, the no-tie speed laces were adjusted by pulling the end of the laces while drawing up on the quick lock. Sizing was correct for my size nine feet. Initial fit was snug with full support in the ankle and heel. The lugged sole provided traction on both wet and dry ground while providing a stable base.

The breathable uppers kept my feet dry from perspiration, although they did allow dust and water to enter through the perforations.

While the shoes felt okay at the beginning of each day, after several miles on the trail it became obvious that the Adidas Terrex Boost shoe is designed for a narrow foot so, it wasn’t a perfect match for my wide forefoot. I kept hoping they would stretch out a bit and fit better, but it never happened. While no blisters arose from the narrow fit, the shoes were not comfortable and eventually each day on the trail was aborted.

I ended up giving the shoes away.
