A few weeks back I received a pair of Ultra Boost kicks from Adidas. I was pretty excited to receive them because I have heard nothing but good things. And I was surprised at how much I like them. I’m sharing my thoughts on the shoe strictly because I really like them (love them) and I think you will love them too. Come get boosted with me!
The color, for one, is gorgeous. It’s absolutely one of my favorites. It is a great deep purple that goes really well with a lot of my workout gear. And hey, purple used to mean royalty, enough said. These are royally awesome!
The Boosted Fit
I loved the fit of this shoe. It has an attached tongue, so no worries about that rotating to the side on the run and fits snug around my foot with no slipping. You can easily tie the laces once and slip the shoe on and off multiple times without having to re-tie the laces. This is super convenient when I’m back and forth from training, home, and clients.
Performance of Adidas Ultra Boost
Ok, so the color and fit are great, no big deal if performance isn’t there. But it is with this shoe. I loved running in them on the road and on the track. The sole is so cushioned, it feels like you are running on clouds and I loved doing speed work with these. I felt like I was springing off the track.
The shoe locked my foot down and keep me in good form while running. I easily kept my best stride. The shoes also are lightweight and I didn’t get any blisters or painful spots on my feet. Overall a great fit.
The sole is made for toughing it out on the roads. With a grippy bottom surface and traction even on wet terrain, I am planning to take this shoe with me on many a training run and race.
Overall Thoughts on the Ultra Boost
This shoe would be great for short distance runners and endurance based runners alike. The fit, cushion and traction all make it a great road shoe and everyday trainer.
And of course, they’re also just fun to sport around town!
