Here we go again Billy visuals Bring up another controversial topic Hello, and welcome to Billy visuals where we're all about visuals I could go on forever arguing about the both of these shoes But I'm going to try my best to make this and informative But short review these shoes are both designed to be running shoes And I already know that so you don't have to keep reminding me the reason why I'm even using Issues as travel shoes is because these two shoes have really good systems in them with the alpha Balance and the boost technology They're really comfortable to walk in and I know that I'm comparing both of them in terms on comfort but though the two of them either or shoe, or is already better than a lot of shoes there are on the market, so That being said this shoe review is just comparing the best of the best both these shoes are designed to be running shoes But with two different foam density materials of course we all know what boost is by now You can see it literally outside of the midsole but if you're curious about what alpha bounce foam looks like you can click right here on a Video of where I cut the alpha bounce in half and you guys can see the foam in there as a lot of you know I just came back from a trip to Asia.
I went to Taiwan Japan and hong Kong and through this trip I walked hundreds of miles non-stop hiking every day from 6 a.
To 11 p.
And actually documented every single day So if you guys want to check out my vlogs currently I have about 10 days of my trip Uploaded and I'm going to be uploading it weekly, but I'm also going to be uploading speaker content You can check out my vlog at fushimi inari here, and you can check out my vlog on Mount Fuji here I put a lot of effort into creating these dope visuals So thank you so much for those who supported me and watch my blog so far, and it'd be awesome You guys check it out anyways through this trip mean patrina actually walked a lot like 30, 000 steps every single day So I think it's fair enough to say that I really Wore these shoes to the maximum from every single day hiking and traveling this review is for the best traveling shoe Take about a green ascent in terms of that category And I basically switch to shoes every other day to make sure that I feel the difference Like I said before I know the shoe is designed to be running shoes But the film and the shoes are just so comfortable to walk in so before I dive deeper here is my final and concluded thoughts on both shoes, and you're walking in alphabets You are walking consistently you're consistently moving around Walking running hiking the Alpha Balance is for you You're always moving and the comfort is always consistent with ultra boost you're only walking seldomly but most of the time you're static on your feet And that's where you get the most comfort with alpha Balance when if your static a lot You will feel like the midsole is quite hard, but with ultra boost if your static a lot You'll feel the comfort in the squishiness, but but ultra boost after walking a long time you'll start to feel this Annoying warm tingling numbing and your heel and the ball of your feet This has to do with the squishiness of the boost it's not made to be worn For long periods of time like a lot of people do because they feel like the comfort is good at first But then over time it developed into this like annoying is almost so for me when I was walking every single day 30, 000 steps in the Algebra I felt like I want to take it off like halfway through the day But with the alpha balance I felt like I actually wanted to keep it on because it was consistent It was comfy and it was it wasn't too much squishiness, but it also gave me support So that said I actually liked the alpha balance walking every single day consistently but on the days.
I'm a little bit more static I like the ultra boost so that's my final conclusion, but now I'm going to dive deeper into the details So if you already wanted to know my opinion on that, that's basically it so here's the breakdown of each shoe Let's start off with alpha Balance alpha Balance is good for consistent movement, but the ankle collar Where the booty type shoe is it's quite tight when you first get it.
I actually loosen these laces quite a lot and After a while it'll break in but at first you might feel a little bit discomfort on how tight the ankle collar is But over time it actually feels really really good after breaking it in the insole I took it out because the material on the insole is a bit smooth too silky And when you're put your feet in there, it actually kind of moves a bit or slips a bit So I just took it out But it doesn't really change the comfort if you just put no tinsel in there it still feels really really good the shoe is very Durable and engineering mesh makes this shoe even better I wouldn't recommend getting the normal one without the engineering mesh Because it's not breathable and the shoe is actually kind of a little bit hot without it So if you wear this without the engineering mesh, then you would basically cook your feet But with the engineering mesh you get a little bit more cooling a little bit more air through your feet So this is a breakdown at Alpha bounce the only problem I didn't like about the alpha Balance was that if you step in mud, or dirt? The Crevices actually get the mud stuck quite a long time And it's a little bit hard to remove but using a simple toothbrush or something will make it better as You can see in this shot the alpha Bouncing ultra Bruce is really dirty Due to the wear and tear that I've done on this shoe during the trip and there's just evidence of me testing the hell out Of issues now.
I know the Algebra is 2.
0 and 3.
0 a very in comfort from the 1.
0 Which is why I keep highlighting the fact that I'm testing the 1.
Not the 2.
Not the 3.
0 So take this shoe comfort review between the alpha Balance and Algebra is 1.
0 The number one pet peeve of adult abuse is the warm numbness that you get in your heel and the ball of your feet Now I know you guys are gonna hate me for this But I actually do feel that feeling and it wasn't even until I took out the insole of the shoe That I felt like this shoe is actually more bearable But for some reason it makes your feet really really numb after like two three hours of walking, so it Like in the middle of day while walking those 3, 000 steps I would actually want to take it off just to let it settle down and not be so uncomfortable, but if you have the ultra boost one point roll with the insulin please share your thoughts because I personally didn't like it and It felt way better after taking it out now in terms of statics the ultra boost is obviously the better looking shoe It's more simplistic and even a knit pattern is really nice on the 1.
0 Because it's one coloured knit pattern the primate on the 1.
0 ultra boost though doesn't stretch It is really stiff and if you try stretching it and if you try stretching it it really doesn't budge It's not supple like the 3.
0 or 2.
0 ultra boost.
Can see it stretch.
It's very stretchy Over time the squishiness of the ultra boost is very non-existent because your feet is numb to it, or is just used to it So it's to switch between a normal Evie Al midsole sneaker And then going back to boost because then you'll get the real difference, but if you wear every single day You feel like it's just getting really no that being said the alphabets no matter how much you walk in it You will always feel the comfort is consistent, and it won't feel like Sometimes, it's numb sometimes it's not there sometimes It's squishy like the boost is but with alpha balance you will always feel like it's comfortable like it's not over squishy But it's a little hard to explain But you have to try it out yourself in order to tell the difference between boost and alpha Balance, so when I was traveling Asia every day I would this debate between the two shoes I would only wear the ultra buse in urban settings and settings where I know I'll be doing photo shoots with Just so that can get like a dope aesthetic because the ultra boost is a very simplistic and good looking shoe Don't get me wrong the alpha bounce is also good-looking, but in terms of hype and aesthetics I feel like Algebra wins that way over that being said on days where it's chaotic.
I have to walk a lot I would rather choose the alpha Bounce over the Algebra It's because it's reliable comfortable, and it doesn't look bad so at the end of the day I feel like not enough people are giving attention to the alpha Bounce because of Ultra Boost.
Hype and boost hype in General while I agree that boost is great because of the squishiness and responsiveness like no other system has It does have its flaws I know this might change your perspective on Ultra Boost and alphabets, but in reality I just want to make sure that you guys get a truthful opinion on both issues they're just used for two different types of walking and I know it's not designed for walking but they're just comfortable for walking so Like I said before static for ultra boost and a lot of movement with Alpha Belts Anyways, this has been billy visuals you guys just got visualized and I'll see you guys in the next one peace.
