“Yesterday I had a fantastic threshold workout in my adidas Energy Boost. It was the first time I ever ran in an adidas shoe and I plan on using this shoe as my official training shoe and for my next 10K. The fit is snug so it fits like a glove and it’s lightweight so it feels like I have nothing on my feet. I was a bit skeptical about the new Boost technology, however I felt a spring-like feel on every step. After my run my legs felt fresh. Nothing beats the Energy Boost during my marathon training. Ounce for ounce, the Boost has the Bounce!”
The Energy Boost features proprietary new technology. The Boost outsole provides more energy return than traditional foam outsole material; 2,500 individual TPU pellets are fused and give the shoe an incredible response. The seamless Techfit upper fits snug and is lightweight and cool. Tests show that the Boost outsole will retain its response longer than traditional EVA outsoles. While the Energy Boost is for neutral runners, pronators can check out the Adistar Boost for more stability. Also check out the adidas Guide Boost and Adios Boost.
