Redefining Your Run
The adidas Ultraboost was designed with one goal in mind: to be the best running shoe ever made. Even for the sportswear giant, this was an ambitious goal. But by combining key technology like a Boost midsole, Primeknit upper, and their patented Torsion Bar, adidas created a responsive running shoe that changed the game.
It Starts in the Sole: Boost Technology
When the Boost technology first debuted, it was like nothing the world had ever seen. Made from hundreds of foam capsules welded together, Boost technology delivered 20% more energy return than EVA rubber, the midsole standard in the industry. More energy return meant a shoe that responded to each stride, giving back what you put into your run.
In 2015, adidas put their Boost technology to the test: Kenyan long-distance runner Dennis Kimetto ran the Berlin marathon in a shoe with Boost tech. He didn’t just win, he crushed the world record by 26 seconds for a time of 2:02:57. Boost wasn’t just fast, it was record-setting. With this technology, adidas was one step closer to their legendary adidas Ultraboost.
Ultraboost for the Streets
Though it was made to log miles, it didn’t take long before the Ultraboost’s sleek silhouette and neutral tones took over streetwear.
With the help of Kanye West, who performed in a pair of Triple White adidas Ultraboost and quickly caused the shoe to sell out, adidas Ultraboost became a staple of street fashion. Their colorways were easy to match with, and the Boost midsole was instantly recognizable. New Ultraboost iterations like the adidas Ultraboost Uncaged, which ditches the midfoot cage, and the adidas Ultraboost Parley, made from recycled waste, continue to up the game for streetwear.

The Future of Running
With groundbreaking technology underfoot, adidas has no plans of slowing down. Each version of the Ultraboost offers runners another tool to set records, like the adidas Ultraboost Clima, which incorporates 360-degree vents into the shoe for a more comfortable running experience.
With the release of the Ultraboost 19, adidas once again plans to redefine the running scene. A Primeknit 360 upper is designed to stretch with your foot to reduce pressure points without sacrificing support, while the Boost midsole continues to deliver unparalleled cushioning. With adidas Ultraboost, the future of running is now, and the energy is endless.
