- -Firm yet responsive cushioning.
- -Great low profile road feel.
Rare vintage from 2011/2012 season. The running shoes guru describes the shoe below.
Adidas used its Adiprene EVA foam cushioning, which is firm yet responsive, throughout the entire length of the Boston 3. I especially appreciated the increased cushioning throughout the forefoot and the full length Adiprene really gives the Boston 3 a nice ride. Midfoot and forefoot strikers will especially love the firm ride which gives a sense of proprioception and feel for the road. Heel strikers will like the decoupled and well cushioned heel which also aids in a smooth transition through the foot plant.
Adidas uses its Torsion Bar in the mid foot which helps stabilize the shoe. Mild overpronators, like myself, can get away with wearing the Boston 3, while those needing more stability will likely find it a great marathon racing shoe but too minimal for daily training.
