By now you’ve seen adidas’ new Boost midsole compound, designed to give runners a significant increase in energy return over a traditional EVA midsole while remaining soft and cushioned underfoot. Following through with the expansion of footwear options offering this new technology, adidas is introducing a racing shoe utilizing the Boost midsole, combining elements from the Energy Boost and the highly pedigreed adizero adios. It’s called the adios Boost. Coincidence? We think not.
With a soft yet responsive ride, and with cushioning that is designed to stay consistent as the miles rack up, the adios Boost sets itself up to be a strong choice for runners seeking a racing shoe for their next marathon. The adios Boost got its official launch at the Boston Marathon expo and over the weekend Emmanuel Mutai wore the shoe at the London marathon.
What to Watch For
- Seamless Toebox: Heat transfered overlays over the toe-box limit seams for reduced friction on the foot.
- Responsive Toe-Off: The adios Boost utilizes a full-length torsion system, delivering a snappy rebound for a propulsive toe-off.
- High Traction Outsole: Featuring Continental rubber in key areas, this shoe will provide unrelenting grip on the road in both dry and wet conditions.
- Midweight Specs: adidas claims weights of 8.0 oz for a Men’s size 9 and 6.6 oz for a Women’s 8, as well as a 10mm heel to toe offset.
