I think they look great! Just picked up a pair for the Scotiabank marathon
Really?

Adidas Engineer: "These are the stability versions of our popular Ultraboost running shoes."
Adidas Exec: "But they look exactly the same. I can't tell the difference. Our consumers will be confused."
Adidas Designer: "Fair. We'll add a strip of colour to the insole to indicate the harder Boost material that gives the shoe more stability."
Adidas Exec: "Not good enough."
Adidas Designer: "Hmm."
Adidas Exec: "Hmm."
Adidas Designer: "I got it! Let's add an ugly, random, asymmetric strip of colour across the toes on the upper!"
Adidas Exec: "PERFECT!"

Pretty sure $240 shoes made by adidas, even if called running shoes, are not actually for running.

I've had the red ST for a while now, and they're much better than the originals imo, especially for incredibly long walks.

The sole is a bit thicker, but the underside of the tongue doesn't have that annoying unstitched part like the originals so it's worth it.

This friggin thread awakened my Ultra Boost addition but instead of the ST, I bought the Ultra Boost Parley from Sportchek with 30% off + 10% off from newsletter signup + 6% Ebates cashback. Came up to $178 after tax but before Ebates. They look so much better than these. But damn, I really didn't need another pair... Disappointed Face

Thanks OP, picked up a pair in store today. Paid $101.15+tax (extra 15% off first responder/military discount). Nice shoe for the price.

They're a pair of shoes. You can wear them however you like. It just so happens that Ultraboosts look pretty great (maybe minus the STs) so that they can be worn as lifestyle shoes, are comfy af, and are also really well-reviewed for running.

What some people will do is wear them as their training shoes and then use them as casual walking shoes after they wear out. Runners do wear out and if you're a frequent runner, this can happen in as little as 6mo-1yr.

very tempted. Nike Freeruns have always been go-to walk around shoe, but people swear by ultraboosts. It seems that every young'un and their dog wears boosts. What say you guys? Are you on this train?
I have 3 pairs of UB 1 real and 2 fake, and even the fakes are still better then any shoe I have worn in my life lol, when I put a pair of non boost shoes on it feels uncomfortable as hell and like im walking on cement.

can anyone shed some light on what the main difference is between "ultra" and "pure" boost?

The ultra boost ST are much more comfortable than the regular ultra boost and in my opinion look as good or better too. Really dun understand the hate, but due to the hate these go on sale regularly so i’m not complaining haha. a little late this time oos online
