Follow up review of Adidas Climachill Cosmic Boost shoes

I received a fairly alarming message from the good folk at mapmyrun.com. ¬†It started “On your last leg…” which at my age is a tad disconcerting.

Here it is:

Cosmic Boost

Almost as alarming as the one I received (& ignored) 2 weeks ago, mentioning a midlife crisis.

I know they are talking about my shoes, and not me, but at my age, these comments hit home ūüôā

Anyway, there you are.

Hardly seems possible, but I have run 493km since July 14th in my lovely Adidas Climachill Cosmic Boost shoes. ¬†They still seem (and indeed look) so new that they don’t feel (or look) on their last legs at all. ¬†Unlike their owner.

Running every day in these shoes through the Delhi monsoons has been a breeze.  They really do not hold the water, and they dry off so quickly.

On those days when the rain was more like mud, I have washed the shoes and they dry pretty quickly, too.

So instead of lumbering along in sodden shoes and thick sodden socks, I have been able to run through rain without worrying about it.  And that factor has seriously helped my running.  I just run on, regardless, rather than trying to dodge the puddles and mud.

Take last Sunday, for example, at a promo 10km run by the good folks who run the Bengalaru marathon*** & who are (oh happiness) bringing a full marathon here to Delhi next year.

The heavens opened just before we set off – ¬†while we were all warming up – ¬†and it drizzled much of the time, and then absolutely poured down again (around the halfway point of the race). ¬†At one point, it was raining cats and dogs, but I didn’t even think about my feet. ¬†My glasses, yes. ¬†But not my feet, and I didn’t feel that chilling dampness in my feet when I eventually splashed my way into the Jawarharlal Nehru Stadium & the finish line.

The shoes are still in great condition, with only one teensy lose thread (below) which I actually noticed right at the start, only a few days after I started wearing the shoes back in July. ¬†It seemed churlish to bring this up in my first review of the shoes, because everything else was perfect, so I didn’t. ¬†Even now, to be honest, the lose thread has stayed the same, not getting worse, so it’s no big deal.Adidas Climachill_2019Will I buy these again, when, sadly, I can no longer ignore the warnings from mapmyrun.com?

Definitely.

*** And yes, indeed. Adidas is also a sponsor of the Bengalaru Marathon.
