Adidas EQT vs Ultra Boost

img_9466

A self-confessed sneaker addict, with more sneaks than any other shoe in this world, is in constant search for the most comfortable work shoes that look good with scrubs. Okay, that’s me, a simple sneaker-lover, who has experienced filling in a whole lot of shoes, from orthopedic to pro, yet fashion-forward enough to know “VIRGIL ABLOH”,  what is Fenty, and who is Fieg, and for a year thought Nike Air Max Zero was the most comfortable sports shoe ever. That year, also got Nike Theas just because I thought they looked cool ’til I discovered looks could kill after the first hour. Then at a Women’s Day Sale, I tried on Adidas EQT Racing ADV 91-17 and thought I was walking on clouds literally and figuratively.  The extra-wide flare, especially that my feet are supinated, was the first thing I noticed.  I got them cheap, but price doesn’t matter, really, when it comes to great-fitting shoes. And in truth, expensive doesn’t necessarily equate to perfect fit. EQT is equipped with OrthoLite insoles.

My son was egging me to try on Ultra Boost and I was not really sold on the aesthetics nor liked the colorways when I checked Adidas online earlier. Then when I visited Finish Line recently to check out 3-striped socks, I finally tried on a pair of Ultra Boost.  Snug and bouncy was my initial thought. Bought a pair right away.

Following two 12-hr shifts of walking and standing in Ultra Boost, I can publish my love for EQT for these reasons: (1) felt no pain whatsover even after long walks, but wished the tips were a tad wider ‘coz my 7 1/2 high-arched feet are kinda wide, (2) they offer exceptional support (my feet are underpronated) and never had accidents wearing them, and (3) who doesn’t love comfy shoes?

Checking out the EQT Boost 93-17 next .
