Outsole
Outsole

Outsole

The outsole is made out of elastic rubber that is covered with a carbon rubber for extra durability. The tread doesn’t look like much, but runners who bought the Adidas Pure Boost 2.0 were pleasantly surprised when they realized the tread was amazing and provided a good grip. The outsole is also very lightweight. There is a lot more height near the heel rather than the forefoot, which is ideal for a sneaker for maximum support.
Midsole
Midsole

Midsole

The midsole is definitely the strong suit of the sneaker. The TPU-made midsole offers energy capsules that will absorb the energy from your feet when running. It then pushes the energy back up at you to help you run faster and longer with less effort.
Upper
Upper

Upper

The upper is extremely comfortable and will provide maximum breathability thanks to the incredible Air Mesh technology. The panels on the sides of the shoe have holes to offer breathability without small stones or sand making its way in the sneaker and on your socks. There is padding in the heel and the tongue of the running shoe, and the lace system has loops to tie the sneaker as tight as you’d like for a good fit while you run.
Weight
Weight

Weight

The weight of the Adidas Pure Boost 2.0 is just 9.5 ounces in men's and 8.4 ounces in women’s, which is pretty average for a casual running sneaker. Most of the reviews, maybe even all of them, seem to point out how unbelievably lightweight the sneaker feels. It is very airy. Runners who have used the sneaker love how lightweight it is, it seems to make the sneaker even more comfortable and easy to run in.
Breathability
Breathability

Breathability

The sneaker is extremely breathable thanks to the Air Mesh technology. There are side panels that have holes to let air in and out to keep your feet feeling dry. The mesh is stretchy with lots of micro holes all over it, big enough to let air in but small enough to keep any debris out. Because of the holes in the side panels and the Air Mesh technology, every time you hit the ground with your feet you can feel a puff of air on you to keep everything dry and splendidly comfortable.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

Again, this is another strong suit of the Adidas Pure Boost 2.0. Runners point out how comfortable the shoe is overall, not just one part of the shoe. The upper of the shoe definitely provides this the most because of the stretchy mesh material. The outer sole is made out of an elastic rubber which is said to be cushiony and foamy feeling.
Style
Style

Style

The style for this sneaker is amazing. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from, all of which are stunning. The side of the upper has a suede Adidas symbol that goes well with the style of the sneaker. The Adidas logo always blends in with their sneakers and looks almost as if it’s the pattern on the shoe. Since Adidas is so widely known, you are sure going to get some compliments on the shoe’s fabulous style.
Durability
Durability

Durability

The durability is one place where the sneaker had a minor issue. The outsole of the sneaker is extremely durable even though it is so flexible, but some reviewers who have used the sneaker claim that the upper mesh rips quite easily. A good way to keep that from happening is not using the sneaker for trail runs.
Protection
Protection

Protection

The upper mesh will keep debris and small rocks out of the interior of the sneaker, protecting your feet from the terrain. The sole of the Adidas Pure Boost 2.0 sneaker is extremely cushiony to reduce strain. Unfortunately, the drop is a little high which means you could potentially get ankle strain depending on how you use the sneakers. There is no insole, which means it could feel slightly uncomfortable, but there aren’t any complaints about that being a factor that makes them uncomfortable. In fact, most reviewers think that it’s the most comfortable shoe they have ever worn.
Responsiveness
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

The sneaker has amazing responsiveness. The midsole has energy capsules which absorb the energy you put out when your foot hits the ground while running. The energy capsules push that energy back onto your feet and into your body, so that when you lift your foot to run again, the energy that pushes your foot up will help you run faster and longer with less effort.
Support
Support

Support

The sole of the Adidas Pure Boost 2.0 sneaker has a lot of support. Since most of the elastic rubber is at the heel, it keeps your foot in a good position for running. The sole is also very cushiony and is like a pillow for your foot. It adapts to the shape of your foot immediately. The drop on the sneaker is 10mm, which is a little on the high side but that means it is a great sneaker for running.
Terrain
Terrain

Terrain

This sneaker is best for road or smooth terrain. The tread is not exactly super textured. The sole is pretty smooth looking with holes in it spread out sporadically. Although the sole doesn’t look like it would do much, runners who used the sneaker for road running and less aggressive terrain claimed it had a sticky feeling and felt like there was enough tread on the sneaker for what Adidas Pure Boost 2.0 claims it is for.
Price
Price

Price

The price is a little iffy. The sneaker is meant for casual running only. The sneaker ranges for a little over a hundred dollars. Some runners who have used the sneaker claim that if the sneaker could be used in more aggressive terrains then they would think that the price fits the quality of the sneaker. Other than that, they do think the price fits everything else when it comes to quality, especially with how comfortable the running shoe is.
Traction
Traction

Traction

The traction on the sneaker is not very aggressive, but it doesn’t claim to be either. The Adidas Pure Boost 2.0 is made for running on the pavement and casual, daily wear. The bottom of the sneaker looks smooth with holes spread out sporadically, although no runners who have used the sneaker claim the tread on the shoe is bad.
Flexibility
Flexibility

Flexibility

The sneaker is extremely flexible. The upper mesh feels like a sock on the foot and moves with the way you run. The elastic rubber sole also moves with your feet, and is still super durable. People love how flexible the sneaker is, and claim it makes the sneaker even more comfortable.
Stability
Stability

Stability

Once again, the sneaker is meant for running on the pavement and casual wear only. That means there isn’t enough stability to be wearing these sneakers while hiking or trail running, but there is enough stability to keep your feet comfortably in place to reduce strain and help you run properly.
Drop
Drop

Drop

The drop on this running shoe is 10mm, which is a little on the higher side considering that the average drop is between 5-10mm. The good thing about a high drop is that it keeps your feet in the ideal place for running, which means running faster with minimal effort. The only bad thing about a drop this high is that it could be easier to get strain on your ankles, depending on how long or how fast you run.
