These men's running shoes are bouncy without feeling over-cushioned thanks to boost material in the midsole that compresses and springs back with every step. They feature a sock-like techfit upper and the durable ADIWEAR outsole.

The Energy Boost 2 are the most comfortable running shoes I've ever had but the Response Boost are right there with them. The Response Boost has less of the Boost but still feel about 95% as comfortable. Out of the box, if you've never had the Boost, they feel a little springy but after a couple of miles I got used to it. After runs, my feet feel just as good as when before I started so my feet are never what limits me on my runs when I wear these.
Some reviews say that these run a little small but I got the size I normally get and they felt fine. I think these are a good alternative to the Energy Boost if you want to save a little bit or a good complementary pair to the Energy Boost. I'm looking forward to racking up some miles on these.
Definitely go up 1/2 a size if you plan on running in these, but a full size might be too loose for running. I tried these out in the stores and of the various boost models this one has the best width, which isn't saying much. I have short but slightly wide and thick feet so it's only okay when it comes to fit.
The cushion is unbelievable because of all the super soft EVA on top of the boost. The boost, in my opinion, doesn't provide that much cushioning in the forefoot, although, definitely enough, and if you like a semi-firm and responsive ride, this will actually be preferable. The only negative is that I don't think the outsole is Adiwear Rubber, as Adidas' own site states; the nubs on the soles are a bit soft to the touch but that does in fact add to the cushioning. These may be okay for trail runs due to the layout of the sole.
The shoe is a bit warm to run in due to the techfit upper and that is why I think it will be best for cold weather running, as the boost won't be affected by temperature. The forefoot is also pointy so at the end of my run I did feel that my toe tips were starting to get blisters, so I'll have to see how a full 5k goes.
Everything is okay, except the fit, just feels a bit clunky. I compare this to another neutral shoe like the Brooks Launch, and that beats this one for comfort while running if you don't care too much about cushioning.
I had reservations about the way the shoe was constructed. I thought it would lose its shape and that the compressed stuff in the sole that reminds me of packing peanuts would tear and/or fall apart. I can say without a doubt that those worries were unfounded.
Unfortunately for me, shoe manufacturers nor workout studios don't give a damn. For the former, nearly every shoe I should be using is too narrow. On the latter, concrete/wooden floors are evil. Even more so when they involve jumping jacks, burpees, mountain climbers, pushups, and/or other exercises when pounding is inevitable.
These shoes are awesome; the boost thing no joke. That little extra padding goes a very long way in transferring impact on landing. Also, I absolutely adore the stretchy mesh surface that gives my funky small toes a needed break.
If you're color agnostic, these bad boys can be had for ~$40. Buy two pairs, amigos.
I bought the Boost 2.0 for the better half (complaining of knee problems,)...and knee pain no more.
I have a pair in red and recently purchased another pair in silver/black. I have worn these shoes for jogging, walking, weight lifting/cross training and teaching (on my feet for 6-7 hours). They are the only pair of shoes that have been able to provide the lasting cushioning and support I need each day.
LOVE. THESE. SHOES.
