adidas Ultraboost: Performance meets streetwear
In 2015, the Herzogenaurach-based company presented its first adidas Ultraboost with groundbreaking innovations as a premiere celebration in running shoes. After all, the brand had never before made the entire midsole of a runner out of Boost. In addition, Primeknit, an innovative woven construction based on NASA technology, served as the upper of a running shoe with three stripes for the first time. A lot of new, yet little noise. Adidas presented its new performance runner relatively quietly. The brand only turned up the volume later.
Consciously or unconsciously, the adidas Ultraboost brought high-performance together with street style. The mix of minimalism and comfort quickly made the runner a popular everyday companion. Primeknit and Boost, in turn, predestined it for extensive runs on the street. The innovative damping had already made its first appearance two years earlier, but has not lost a millimetre of efficiency since the release of the addidas Ultraboost. Energy absorption and damping are almost unrivalled.
The Ultraboost is correspondingly popular, which did not stop adidas from subjecting its premium runner to various evolutionary steps. In the meantime, there was an Uncaged model, which, without the supportive cage around the arch, was aimed even more at street style. And as a runner, the adidas Ultraboost, available online at Keller Sports for men and women, continues to evolve from generation to generation. Each new one has more boost than ever before.
Comfort and energetic cushioning: the adidas Ultraboost
Basically, Boost cushioning is a little softer than other variants. Nevertheless, adidas always manages to provide the necessary stability without losing cushioning and responsiveness in the Ultraboost. Another decisive factor is adidas' Torsion technology. This makes the shoe a little stiffer, which in turn harmonises wonderfully with the Boost damping.
Additional support is provided by the cage around the instep, which supports the strengths of the Primeknit upper in the best possible way: The shoe adapts to your foot, but despite its sock-like fit, it doesn't feel spongy. In addition, the upper of the latest adidas Ultraboost is largely made from recycled materials. You can enjoy grip, even on wet surfaces, thanks to the high-quality Continental outsole.
At the same time, it is slightly curved, which is supposed to favour the rolling behaviour. Basically, the setup of the Ultraboost is geared towards comfort. Mainly for your run, but also for your city trip - as you can see from the different colourways in our adidas Ultraboost shop.
First the cushioning, then much more: the advantages of the adidas Ultraboost
The focus is of course on the boost technology. It forms the basis - and perfectly complements all the other technical innovations that adidas has given its Ultraboost models:
- Like a stable sock thanks to Primeknit+: without chafing, the upper of the adidas Ultraboost wraps itself around your foot. It grips tightly, but doesn't constrict. It provides comfort and stability at the same time. All these theoretical opposites are united by adidas' innovative Primeknit+ technology.
- Boost - unique cushioning: Once developed by BASF, Boost relies on a special form of thermoplastic polyurethane. This is processed by adidas into small spheres that easily deform in any direction, but then immediately and explosively return to their original shape. This setup allows the boost technology to first absorb the energy of your steps and then convert it directly back into propulsion. You'll rarely find more reactive cushioning in a running shoe foam.
- Recycled Primeblue materials: A few years ago, adidas began its collaboration with Parley. This resulted in shoes and apparel made from recycled ocean plastic. Primeblue, which you'll find in many Ultraboost 21 models, is partly made from Parley ocean plastic. This creates a high-performance recycled upper.
- Continental outsole for reliable grip: Changing tyres quickly because a rain shower is about to start doesn't work. The rubber compound in a running shoe must therefore be able to cope with both dry and wet conditions. And that's exactly why adidas has been working with Continental for years on the Ultraboost. The tyre manufacturer provides the rubber compound for the outsole and thus ensures that you can set off for your after-work run even in somewhat adverse conditions. And without slipping away on a wet road.
Dynamic runner: the adidas Ultraboost
Thanks to its energy-giving cushioning, the adidas Ultraboost favours a dynamic run. Both in the training stage, or simply at the end of the day or in the spirit of relaxation. You can run realxt or take advantage of the boost cushioning to continuously increase your speed. The runner is best used on the road or on firm paths.
