As frigid February temps took hold of most of the country in 2012, adidas was thinking spring—as in adding a spring to the steps of every runner and casual wearer alike. They released their new BOOST technology, the ultra-bouncy, ultra-light foam cushioning that made runners and walkers feel like they were leaping through the clouds. With advanced energy-returning technology, adidas Boost shoes quickly became a favorite.
The BOOST in adidas Boost shoes is made of a TPU, or thermoplastic polyurethane, which compresses when under pressure and then quickly springs back into shape. The technology has made its way onto some of the hottest sneakers on the shelves, like the UltraBOOST and Nite Jogger. Highly coveted by sneakerheads, Kanye West’s Yeezy shoes also feature the BOOST tech, bringing added comfort to the stylish standout. It’s also showcased on the NMD black model, a sleek running-inspired sneaker that’s ideal for everyday wear.
Offered in a wide range of hues running the gamut from rainbow bright to monochromatic and muted, men’s adidas boost and women’s adidas boost models offer something for everyone. Even kids can get in on the action, with pairs sized just-right for growing feet. Wear your boost sneakers with everything from athletic shorts and joggers to more dressed-up looks for a vibe that’s always in style.
