The designers at Adidas did a lot of things right with the Ultra Boost All Terrain, but that doesn’t mean the shoe is without flaw. For starters, while the shoes ample cushioning adds to the softness of each stride, some runners have found that it is through a sacrifice of stability that this allowed. Others have found the shoe’s support system lacking. Despite its high collar, the shoe did little to prevent ankle roll. The shoe does a great job of wicking away moisture in hotter climates, but its breathability did leave a lot to be desired. Runners have complained that it allowed their feet to get very hot in the shoe. Lastly, when all these negatives are accounted for, there is still the price. The Ultra Boost All Terrain is far more expensive than the traditional running shoe, and even All Terrain running shoes. Many have seen this price as unjustifiable.
So, no the Adidas Ultraboost All Terrain is not what some claim it to be. No, it is not the perfect running shoe, but it is well made and gets a lot of things right. If you’re in need of a new All Terrain running shoe, have a little extra cash and are not turned off by a lack of support, then you would do well to purchase the Adidas Ultra Boost All Terrain shoes. For all its shortcomings, it does live up to its name. It does leave the runner free to explore all terrain.
