The Boston 8 is a reliable racing, up-tempo or light-weight daily trainer for someone who doesn't need a heck of a lot of cushioning. As a lightweight shoe, it does a great job in guiding the foot through a nice transition thanks to its 'Energy Rail' embedded between the mid and outsole of the shoe (picture 3), helping the foot move in a forward direction. Other than that, the shoe is uncomplicated in the best of ways - it's responsive, fast, comfortable and very reliable.
For a lightweight trainer it offers impressive mileage, thanks to a primarily Boost midsole coated in continental rubber.
