New Shoe Review: Ultra Boost from Adidas

Adidas Footwear Launch

Dude. Have you even tried the Boost? If so, you know what I’m talking about. If not…wow, you’re in for a world of surprise. CRC continues to carry the max cushion, max comfort option from Adidas that not only performs well during training, but is incredibly stylish as well.

The Details

Like past Ultra Boost models, the 3.0 makes use of a full Boost midsole. This “Boost” material is actually plastic pellets that are heated up and fused together. The idea is that since plastic is more durable than regular foam, you’ll get a better cushioned ride throughout the lifespan of the shoe.

The Ultra Boost features a full Continental tire rubber outsole. Yeah. Literally tire rubber! It gives you incredible durability and traction.

The upper utilizes the classic Adidas Primeknit to ensure a comfortable, lightweight and adaptive support no matter the shape of your foot.

The Feel

Again, Boost. Lots of it. The sole is 100% Boost! The midsole provides a great amount of shock absorption that's apparent from the second you take this out of the box and lace it up.

Slipping the Ultra Boost on feels like putting on your favorite pair of slippers, as it should. With a full Primeknit upper, the shoe wraps around your foot without seams and feels like you’re wearing a sock with cushion.

The Run

Once you lace these Ultra Boosts up, you won't want to take them off. Whether you’re running a marathon, going to the gym, or walking around shopping for groceries (or all three in one day, you superstar!) these shoes will absolutely provide the ample cushion and support that you’re looking for. Be prepared for stares of awe as bystanders marvel at the fantastic three-stripe shoe you’re repping.

Already know and love the Ultra Boost? Go ahead and shop our online store for the Black or Grey in men's and Blue in women's. But if you want to experience this shoe firsthand, stop by the Dublin or Short North CRC and we'll help you out!
