  • Yo, I know it's 2 years since the vid dropped, but I think you need to utilize a full boost midsole, like on a pure boost. It was designed for performance, not just to feel comfy. They always talk about energy return from the boost tech, so test it against a regular shoe you'd use. Mainly testing your vert, not stuff like grip and what not,  but your jumping capabilities.

  • Savings in metabolic cost with Boost and savings from a lighter weight shoe aren't exclusive of each other. "Why not just buy a lighter weight shoe?" Well, a lighter weight Boost shoe would still be better than both. So, the argument for lighter shoes doesn't necessarily disprove the benefits Adidas claims with Boost. Except that maybe we have yet to see that lighter Boost shoe. 🙂

  • Adidas boost foam technology is the best there is. I have three pairs Supernova Glide 6 and 7 and a pair of energy boost and I highly recommend them .

  • You hardly reviewed the shoe itself. Btw you heel strike in the video except when you were running with the parachute. Heel striking depends on your running form not on your shoes offset, although you'll argue it encourages heel striking.

  • Man… you have Nike posters behind..All your Adidas shoe reviews that I've seen are mostly negative..Those Springblades deserved it but nonetheless.. you're subjective.. Can't trust your reviews to be accurate or relevant.. Not after this one and a few others.. You made these great shoes sound regular..('' a marketing product.. ''). They deliver… above any Nikes or Asics that I've had for running..

  • Good video, I just need to mention 1 thing. A lighter shoe would get the same job done too in terms of oxygen consumption. But if you run long distance like me. The boost is perfect! It's not really about energy return but it's more about the comfort when you run marathons. I feel like standard EVA, Nike Zoom etc isn't getting the job done when I run long distance. Boost still feels right when I run long distance imo!

  • In the end it's just his opinion and his experience in the shoe. He's sharing his honest thoughts with us and that's cool because most businesses don't roll that way. They have my support because like he said they're trying to help us by sharing their experience in the shoe. By the way they have said time and time again that at the end of the day it's still our choice to buy whatever we want, regardless of what they say.

  • @KickGenius  I will do a better job at disproving people than this Nike fan boy can do any day.
    Number one, he claims that the boost foam material "proves to return more energy than your standard midsole". You ask how is he wrong on this point already?! Isn't he just listing the facts of the test, and then proving why it’s wrong? ERRRHHH ERRRHHH (my own sound effect) No, and the reason why he is wrong with that already is due to the fact that the test isn't showing how much energy is being returned to the body. The test is showing how much the boost is actually able to compress and contract when force is being applied downward on the material similar to how a heel will press down on a shoes material when you run. (He later states that the test isn't a good test since it doesn't show how a human runs, because the test is on a vertical plane and we run horizontally) I mean is this just playing doctor, with doctor words, and doctor clothes? But more on that later, I want to literally dissect every point that he's wrong in piece by piece)
    He states next that he is coming fresh from "disproving" Adidas and their Springblade shoes through, what he thinks is "physics". In that video I went all over ensuring people that his claims are just as rubbish as all the Adidas shoes he claims are. That's a hell of a lot! Since he's a Nike fan boy and all! The reason why he didn't use physics like he thinks he did was because he made statements about the "resting energy" and the fact that animals that run fast, run fast due to their legs being longer and larger than humans, and how it’s usually on a 1:1 ratio or more! (That too is false; seriously, measure the body of some of these animals and you'll see that the ratio is not like he states. Just use common sense, a ratio of 1:1 is saying half of the animal’s anatomy is legs, and the other is torso, arms, head, etc… Which is true for many animals, so if he wanted to say that the legs are larger than he's going to have to say that the ratio is more like 1:5 or more which is extremely off and would hinder the animal's movements rather than increase them. Imagine a cheetah with legs five times its torso/chest, still think he can run fast?) Also about the "resting energy", there is no such thing as resting energy. They are exact opposites, which will never attract. Resting energy is like saying, dark is lighter in one place than in others. When that cannot exist since dark is just the absence of light. Dark is only a term humans have invented to help us describe something missing light or lacking thereof. Energy is movement, something in motion, rest is the opposite, and therefore nothing can both be at rest and in motion at the same time. If he can explain and prove this, he will be given every award known to man and change science for humans as we know it for eternity. I like to bet on the small fry but science has better odds! His third main point in that video was his drawing of an animal’s leg in motion and drawing lines and arrows showing god know what to prove resting motion, which does not exist. And he shows his lack of knowledge and intelligence on the simple fundamentals of science based on Kinetic and Potential energy, not ever to be confused with the crap he made up called "resting energy". He also misspells 'recoil' seriously, the guy adds an 'e' to the end, as if it belongs there, like it was always meant to be there. I don't blame him on that though; everyone makes mistakes in grammar or spelling, but on a video man! He did stop-motion animation too, so he literally took thousands of pictures if at the least hundreds to notice it.
    After that he explains to the audience that he is going to run his mouth, which is true. Absolutely no objections to that statement, yep, that checks out 100 percent. No doubt about that one! Place your bets he will run his mouth, and for 7 whole minutes too!
    But then he kills it and says he dedicates his life to proving people wrong, and then that is a lie. (Maury checked the results and found that to be more than 9 times, Maury placed his bet on science, Maury won the race)
    He says that the test represents the energy return claim, which is a claim made by Adidas, but is not what the test is put out to prove. So yeah… he's wrong folks. Are you still surprised? Why?
    He goes on to say that Adidas now needs a more physiological test to show how their claim does bring energy back to the human body(Which later he says energy doesnt return to the body through a shoe, so why he flip flops we’ll never know). As if Adidas (like he says constantly in other videos about how Adidas just does marketing and their technology never works) didn't spend billions year after year making sure their stuff doesn't check out. He found one test, but he can't find another one? Shocking. he makes the claim about humans getting energy back from a shoe, which is not possible (but he claims it is and then at the end says its not real), the only way that energy can be returned is if the actual shoes jumps off your foot and onto your lap and spoon feeds you Gerber like a baby. One because energy cannot be returned from a shoe, period. It can show an effect that is happening when you exert force on the shoe, and if the force so happens to push back, then that is just better for you. But it does not in any way return energy. It can only have an opposite and equal reaction to any action put on the shoe, wait, doesn't that sound like Newton's law +Andrew Liao that a real science teacher has been blaring to you louder than your own stereo system? Yeah, right again! He simply uses a play on words to make something appear there, when nothing is there to begin with. In argument that is called a Straw man fallacy, college English 101. Seriously, look it up and you'll find out that people do this all the time and it’s amazing how they get by with it!
    Next he states that humans aren't metal balls, again I agree with that as well. Although, some have been found to contain metal, no such human is simply a metal ball. Sorry, Star Wars was wrong!
    But then he says something more bizarre than anything I've heard someone say in public before. We, the human race, have the ability of elasticity. Elastic qualities he says, as if were mother%#%^&$ Mr. Fantastic himself. If he proves we're elastic, may God have mercy on the scientific forum for not enlightening us to this amazing and magical discovery! He uses RGIII (I think that's him, I don't watch American football, sorry I’m a football fan (soccer for you other guys)) to show those elastic qualities, and calls him predator, which might mean that's why RG is so good? Anyways I tried using my elastic properties and I failed, like this guy in science, horribly son.
    He says we don't run in vertical planes, which might make you say; yeah alright he's got you on that one. If you thought that you never lifted your knee or foot up in the air to move, ever. Of course we move and "run" in a vertical plane all the time, however, like how he's thinking we never move our legs and go upwards and the same speed you run forwards. Now that just doesn't happen except for in cartoons, all kinds of S#@% happens there! But we do in a sense run in vertical planes; you see people go up the stairs at work or school all day long and don't complain that those people are super humans with elastic qualities. Or wait… didn't he say we have that? Now he's even got me confused!
    Again he states that energy returns to the human body through the shoes crap, which no shoe will do(and then claims at the end it does, then says it doesn't at the very end, do you see a trend here?). (If Adidas claims to say it actually does then they are just as crazy, but I've checked their ads and claims and I can tell you that they don't, they use the term energy return technology, in the sense that the shoe is returning energy through Newton’s third law +Andrew Liao not through actual energy like eating food)
    Then he starts really slamming down and starts playing with mathematical equations. Stating how less oxygen consumption means less metabolic cost meaning more energy. Okay now stop, where did he get the 1% from, if it was from the ads he says are bogus then he is just as bogus as the shoe he claims is. If it’s from his tests, where are the facts and diagnostics from these published results? I can tell you betting against this guy is easier than taking shoes from an elastic super vertical running metabolic costing human. And then there was the definition of Metabolic.
    Metabolic: Relating to metabolism, the whole range of biochemical processes that occur within us (or any living organism). Metabolism consists of anabolism (the buildup of substances) and catabolism (the breakdown of substances).
    The term "metabolic" is often used to refer specifically to the breakdown of food and its transformation into energy.
    Which means that food and water are transformed into energy through the process of metabolism which is not instantaneous (that means instant or really really fast!)
    Breathing in oxygen is called aerobic respiration, and helps cells in your body convert the food you eat into a chemical called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). In turn, ATP provides energy to power your cells, which then fuels your body movements. Which does not happen instantaneously, food must be eaten before, which is why so many athletes and trainers alike tell you a balanced meal is the key to staying in shape and having enough energy to compete. It’s not by wearing a shoe and getting those results immediately like he's trying to say (which later says doesn’t happen, but then does, then doesn’t. Seriously go back and rewind the tape, this guy is that easy to spot). And even then he says Adidas doesn't do that, but he'll be the first to say Nike can!  
    Then he talks about the weight of the shoe, and if you reduced it by 3.5 ounces you'll get that one percent anyway. Right?! Wrong. Because let’s say that you get the fake 1% that he is claiming by running in the shoe, then why would you need to buy another shoe on the market that weighs less but will only give you the same results of the fake 1%. Because, everyone knows that wearing track shoes (without the spikes, just the rubber bumps) that are literally just centimeters off the ground are not a good idea when you want to train on a constant basis. But according to him the lighter the better fake equation will give you. But then imagine if instead of reducing the weight of the shoe, which you can go only so far before you aren't wearing shoes, you reduce your own weight which is far easier and healthier for your body and your shoes! Because this guy is a limited with absolutely no actual knowledge of science.
    And then he lies and says that lighter shoes cost less because less material is used. This is completely false because the reason why Nike sells their 5.0s so damn high is because they offer light weight and flexible shoes. Go find some light weight shoes that are anywhere close to the quality needed to run in and show me the price tag and tell me where they are, because they're bound to go off the shelves!
    And then he lists those shoes dammit! But is cheaper always better? Isn't that an Allstate commercial? Where they literally say that cheaper isn't always better. If you found a cheap pair of socks are they going to last or feel as good as the higher priced socks? And stores don't list the products according to weight, meaning that the heavier shoes cost way more, if that was true steel toed boots would cost the same as a car payment. Seriously, check it out; if the Adidas Boost is around 200 dollars and is light weight, then the boots that are 4X that weight would be 4X the price. Scratch that, not a car payment, a house payment! What about the even heavier shoes?! But then again think about what he said; why not go with the lighter shoes? Well you can go with track shoes (without spikes) and they'll be lighter than any running shoes on the market, but are you going to pay to see the doctor every week when your ankles are non-existent? But the "metabolic cost is o much better! He cried. And think about this, you can only reduce the weight of the shoe so far, before you’re not wearing shoes, so is that the answer, don't wear shoes? NO, for crying out loud, why bother paying more money for higher priced light weight shoes like the Nike Free 5.0s which are just the same price if not higher and reduce the weight of your body; which is healthier for your feet and your body. This guy doesn't know anything, listen to him and you won’t have any feet for much long!
    Then he adds that there is a metabolic cost between what shoes you wear! Wow, full blown insanity! He should be paid by Nike to add his "physics" into proving why everyone should wear only Nike! He's making this stuff up as he goes! So he adds that the "metabolic cost" is the same, and that means you’re going to have the same amount of energy while running. Okay, so first, if we pretended to believe that his useless and fake term existed, then we must conclude that you are losing and not gaining energy. Since we learned that a metabolic process is breaking down food (not air as he is stating, and to be really honest he's just using this crap to make himself sound intelligent. Here watch this, according to the specter analysis of the vector at which the shoes touch the ground in comparison to your ankle bi-directional pinning alignment the supination of the foots motion can be contained with a higher scale velocity jamming shoe insert, thus making me rich. Oxygen is only used to help produce the metabolism that is a process that breaks down food into ATP, which is not called "metabolic cost".) Then your cost does not mean you will have the same amount of energy, you'll be losing energy, and neither will it keep any persons energy level constant or the same, because for one you'll never have the same amount of energy every day nor will a shoe automatically keep you at a certain level or boost your energy. It won’t affect the way your break down food into ATP, and finally it won’t give you energy.
    Then he says the shoe only drops 10 millimeters (but he might have been dumb enough to say liters, I'm not sure so ill have to give him the benefit of the doubt on this one, I want to be fair!) and the proof that it drops that much is where? I mean is this guy better than us, can he see with the naked eye and measure minute discrepancies or changes?
    Now I fully and honestly, jokes aside, give him credit on the gait cycle, that is a valid point. A gait cycle is different for everyone and determines a possible best shoe for that individual, but not related to the other crap he says before or after it. Because, he uses this true statement to get you to think that what was around it is also true and it’s not. Like the whole "down drop" of the shoe being 10 millimeters. Which if true needs a source, I am not the one that is under the burden of showing any evidence for my claims as I have not made any, but have only struck down his fallacitical arguments.
     Then he calls for the audience to show by a raise of hands, which possess the knowledge of energy return via footwear. Which is kind of a good point and I can say I agree with him that as far as energy returning to the body through shoes, as in energy that you consume that gives you strength to perform, is not possible. But, he mentions beforehand that it is possible and that it exists, maybe you just have to buy Nike to experience the carefully soft spoon feeding of the luscious Gerber by your favorite sexy Nike shoe. Wake me up America, I'm dreaming! Or is he? Nah, he's just being hypocritical. Yet he mentions neither the science teacher nor his grandmother can tell him why or how! But I did like the shout out to us YouTube experts that was kind of him. Even though he himself acts as a supreme intellectual being that is only able to tell you why, and how shoes react in the reality we live in based on physics. Which he claims to know but cannot grasp simple science such as Potential and Kinetic energy, in his Springblades video.
    Then he attempts his shot at comedy which was bad.
    That's all I have to say about that.
           – Forrest Gump
    Then he calls for everyone to say energy return shouldn't be the main focus (after he just said it isn’t real, then says it is, then not again, then it shouldn’t be the focus? Rewind the tape!), yet he makes fake equations to show them, spends most of the video talking about how it doesn't work if it has three stripes on it, and then says no one can explain it (except for him because he is the super intellectual kid who can tell the YouTube experts and the science teacher to put their hand down, when in reality if he spent less time telling his science teacher to shut up and actually listened to his teachers he would know something about science) Can someone please say burn, anyone? But then he says it’s so complex we can’t even begin to understand how it works, says the guy who spent most of the video on it, and to think that science has come so far in our time on earth. We just couldn't get to the understanding of how we convert energy by cellular respiration and the process of metabolism, not to be confused with his crap of "metabolic cost" he is seriously a comedian with just speaking, I don't know why he uses jokes.
    The kid doesn't even wanna try to go into how it’s all preformed, but he somehow knows, and it’s too complex to share with us and our feeble minds! After all, he has a masters degree in science specifically majoring in physics and "metabolic cost".
     He wraps it up with some good comments about the shoe and its quality, sizing, and comfort. And the horror is over, for now.
    My main goal was not to make him look stupid; he doesn't need me to do that for him. My goal is to stop people from believing the fake physics he's spewing as if it were reality and true. Just because someone uses big words does not mean that they are intelligent or capable of knowing anything to do with what they are talking about. They are just using that to make themselves sound humpty dumpty and gaining a crowd. Don't be the crowd.
    Any responses I will try to reply, but if I can tell you’re his fan boy then you’re better off with a wall.
    Go out and learn real honest physics, and don't get swept by this kid’s false interpretation. 

    If it gets enough attention I might make a video further pinpointing his lies or his major confusion over science and physics. Thanks! The science community!
