The Adidas Ultra Boost ST Running Shoe for men is a comfortable and roomy sneaker with a good balance between springiness and support and great traction. With a comfortable upper and good all-around padding, the weak point of the shoe is the shallow heel cup, which can be a bit uncomfortable. A particularly good fit for wider feet, the UltraBoost ST is meant to be comfortable and durable enough to justify the high price, but some quality control issues have set it back a bit. Nevertheless, this is a good option for those looking for a well-padded running shoe that can also offer a bit of stiffness in the midsole.
