>6/2/14: Shoe Review - Adidas Sequence Boost

by staff contributor Zach Mione 

Have you been looking for a soft, responsive, trainer that provides some stability for over pronation?  If so, the new Adidas Sequence Boost might be just the shoe for you!

In the past, the Sequence had always played 3rd of 4th fiddle to other shoes in the moderate stability category. That being said, I have been a fan of Adidas Boost shoes and my expectations for the Sequence Boost were pretty high... 

When I laced the Sequence Boost up for the first time, the first thing I noticed was how comfortable the upper felt.  The seamless, engineered mesh gave me the feeling that my foot was nice and secure, but in no way restricted.  Within the first few steps, I also noticed how soft the shoe felt. Adidas added their Boost technology to the midsole providing a very plush platform with a high energy return.  The Stableframe posting under the arch provides a good amount of stability and still allows for a smooth transition through the gait cycle. Weighing in at 10.9 ounces for men and 9.2 ounces for women, the Sequence Boost is one of the lighter shoes in the moderate stability category. The lack of weight and bulk kept my legs feeling fresh throughout my runs. However, the MOST important improvement to the Sequence Boost, in my personal opinionis that if finally looks good! 

With the release of the Sequence Boost, it is safe to say that Adidas is back in the stability game! Let's face it, we all want a shoe that not only feels great, but also looks great. This shoe gives you the best of both worlds!
