The adidas POD-S3.1 is the latest sneaker model with Boost from adidas, but is it worth yout $130 or not? Let’s discuss!

Comfort – better than NMD imo
mock tongue
huge boost on heel
upper material is nice
floating POD midsole but doesnt feel like it is off the ground
elastic tongue strap adds lockdown
Price is $130, not bad at all.
Traction is good
Fit is good, large forefoot section for wife feet

Why no Boost in Forefoot?
While it looks great IMO, I dont understand the concept, POD is like a really big Torsion system? for lifestyle why do we need this? Feels like this could be integrated with a running shoe better?
Colorway on released pair is meh. In the right colorway however this can be nice Imo.
Adidas has dont a minimalist sneaker over and over, would be nice to see something more (Like Nike has done with the React Element)
We want layers, we want better colorblocking.
The release of this didnt seem well thought out, for all the marketing, the release came and went and pairs stayed in the same place.

So why haven’t you tried these yet? Too much $? Not innovative enough? too similar to what you have? colorway? leave a comment!

Is it worth buying IMO? I would say it depends! if you have the $ and you love the Ultra Boost and NMD and Pure boost, these are a great comfortable alternative! If you can only cop 1 pair of sneakers though per year, and only have $130, you can probably get some better deals on sneakers that are on sale. As a fan of adidas boost products however I like these! They have a different look on feet that I dig, I just cant wait to see if they actually make some good colorways in the future.

Boost is our most responsive cushioning ever

This ’90s-era design is a modular midsole fitted together from different materials: Today’s version puts Boost in the heel, high-rebound EVA in the forefoot, and a TPU midfoot bridge for support and structure

The P.O.D. System brings the best of ’90s cushioning to today’s streets. These shoes blend adidas heritage inspiration with a knit upper that has a snug, supportive feel. BOOST HEEL Boost where it matters most. Our leading comfort technology is repurposed within a podular heel element, bringing the full BOOST sensation to the most important part of your stride. POINT OF DEFLECTION BRIDGE Stablity meets flexibility. Inspired by our Torsion System technology, the Point of Deflection Bridge brings stability and flex to the podular sole and allows for the natural torsion of the foot. HIGH REBOUND EVA FOREFOOT Comfort from heel to toe. A High Rebound EVA compound brings soft and responsive cushioning to the forefoot, extending comfort across the sole unit from heel to toe.
