adidas Adizero Boston 7 $120

The Adizero Boston 7 continues the tradition that has made this franchise a great option for runners looking for a fast, long-distance shoe. The upper features a few changes that improve minor weaknesses from previous models.

The forefoot is a semi-open mesh, the iconic three stripes providing the same mid-foot support in a saddle which connects to the laces. The heel tab has been raised by a centimeter or so, to unobtrusively cushion the calcaneus and achilles area while still giving enough material to comfortably get them on, and the supportive heel counter continues as before. The midsole is largely unchanged, the heel bevel sloped for a smoother touchdown. Continental rubber completes the package in a full length configuration. Whether for tempo runs, long races, or even daily training, the Adizero Boston 7 continues to be a great choice for runners looking for a low profile shoe.
 
Testers: “Great combo of cushion and response, predictable cushion from run to run. Snug fit, but comfortable not cramped. Perfect for my fast days.”
