Today, Adidas has released what they are calling their most technically-advanced running shoe, Ultra Boost. The shoe features a combination of two of Adidas’ most innovative technologies with a Primeknit upper for a precision fit and maximum breathability and a Boost midsole which is comprised of 3,000 energy capsules – 20 percent more than any shoe to date. The Ultra Boost will be available on the Adidas website and select retailers on February 11 for $180.
A Stretch Web outsole with a perforated, elastic design puts runners closer to the BOOST cushioning, allowing them to maximize the energy-return benefits. A new heel construction comfortably cradles the foot and adjusts to the Achilles tendon’s natural movements. For a customized fit and feel, a new, featherweight sock liner adapts to runners’ individual foot forms. Ultra BOOST also boasts a new dual-density TORSION® SYSTEM, embedded into the shoe’s base. This allows for more independent movements between the heel and forefoot, giving runners superior stability and a smooth, controlled run.
