The slightly modified Adidas Supernova Glide Boost 8 is the third update since the Boost™ foam was introduced in the most popular running shoe from the german brand. It is the perfect choice for those neutral runners looking for more cushioning than response (please check the Adizero Boston Boost 5 otherwise) and great stability for better performance when fatigue shows up. Ready for daily workouts and one of the best partners when racing long distances like half or full marathon.
Current edition unveils not many changes from its predecessor the Supernova Glide Boost 7 and most of them focus on the upper with a rearfoot design (known as "S-Curve") clearly inspired by the Ultra Boost which prevents slip issues and features a better achilles protection. As well as other models from the "Three Stripes" brand, it is possible to choose between Tech-Fit or lightweight mesh (ESM) upper where available.
As everyone expects, great performance in the Supernova Glide Boost 8 comes from the famous Boost™ foam based midsole delivering great cushioning and responsive ride. Torsion™ technology features natural integrity in the midfoot for great stability and comfort. Outsole uses a rubber coming from tyre manufacturer Continental™ which definitely improves grip even on wet surfaces while extra durable AdiWear shows up on areas exposed to intense wear.
