After hearing Gabe describe the adidas Boost as “the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn” I felt like I had to try them. I’m a shoe dork, which is different from a sneakerhead, but I figured if I could find a pair at a steep discount it would be worth the investigation.

These are not the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn. They’re not even the most comfortable sneaker I own. Maybe I chose the wrong model, or maybe I’m too big for the Boost to cushion, but they’re only okay. I’m going to rock them hard this summer to see how they hold up. I’m not optimistic.
