Was hoping for Parleys. Many days spent on RFD trying to find UBs, thanks!

It's a co-op, you idiot. They have an unlimited return policy, and offer amazing customer support and services. Complain somewhere else.
If you're not satisfied with your co-op, you can ask for your $5 back.

I have similar type of shoes and I'm not impressed with how the sole is holding up.
yup, a problem with Adidas ever since they abandoned this sole (SuperNova Glide Boost 8) which held up better than any runner I've ever owned. Not surprisingly, the Glide 8 is the highest rated Adidas shoe ever on RunRepeat.com
They still use the term 'Continental' sole, but they changed the formula to a softer rubber compound==>softer ride but way less mileage

Actual boost? Or one of Adidas' plastic lookalikes?
Actual boost.

As you can see, one side of the sole caved in, it happened after about a week of use.

That's a manufacturing defect- I would have contacted/sent them back to Adidas

Well then...let's make it $20..or $50...or $100...why not?..."it's a co-op"...whaaaaaa

Pathetic.
Except its not $20 or $50.... or $100. It's only $5 so the only pathetic thing around here is you and your complaining.

These are both false statements. These are designed like that. I have 2 pairs of Response Boosts that look exactly the same. I can't tell what model are in that pic, maybe Adios or Adizero boosts but that is how they are designed. Your shoes are not "defective." If you look closely at your picture, the Boost "circles" are all still circles, they are not compressed at all.

All of my ultraboost look exactly the same. They are designed like that. They all curve up on one side.

That's how they're supposed to look:

This is a stock photo of a unworn pair. They all curl up on the outside edge.

The simplicity of the design and the quality of the materials, makes these things absolute tanks. I've put about 1000 km of walking on mine. They look perfect. No separation of the upper from the sole. The upper is in perfect condition. The only issue is the boost isn't bouncy in some spots anymore, and the treads on the bottom have work down.

If the shoe is falling apart, you are probably misusing it. Ultraboost shoes are designed for walking and running on pavement in dry conditions.
