Adidas Ultra Boost Running Shoes – What You Should Know

adidas Men's Ultraboost Running ShoesThe Adidas Ultra Boost is one of the best line of shoes ever released by Adidas. Adidas hails it as “the greatest running shoe ever”. The shoe is a top choice by runners, style icons and sneakerheads for its comfort and functionalities. The year of release is 2015.

Getting feedback from customers on the product you introduced into market is very helpful. This is what the Adidas engineers did after the launch of the Adidas Energy Boost in 2013. They asked runners about their first experience with the Energy Boost shoe. The feedback gave them the clue on what to improve on. The goal was, according to James Tarrier, to “create a shoe that releases the full potential of the amazing Boost foam while at the same time making sure an unmatched adaptable fit in the upper. This is to enable the shoe copes with the dynamic changes in the shape of runners’ feet during running gait.

A question is, how could they achieve something like this? Something that has to do with the dynamic change of shape?

I really think, to do impossible, someone has to look beyond his wall and take inspiration from others. For instance, Nike takes advantage of technology to incorporate visible Air-Sole unit in the Nike Air Max 1 in 1987. Air Max shoes today can be found with big visible Air unit in the heel.

Adidas is also one of the best brand out there that do not take what technology or engineering tool can do in their shoe production line for granted. Many brands try to find a way to use engineering tools to define the quality, effectiveness and functionalities of their production.

In the case of Adidas Ultra Boost, the well-known engineering tool is the ARAMIS system. ARAMIS system is used by top engineering companies around the world namely, medical, aerospace and automotive. What it does is, it measures the movement and deformation of objects and surfaces. This enable them to build some knowledge on the natural movement of the foot and how well it would have been developed to adapt to the movement. Necessary data were collected and were able to utilised effectively in the Ultra Boost shoe.

This Adidas shoe has got many reviews. And, right now, it is my job to let you know the overall points that the reviewers are making. Over 3000 customers reviewed the shoe on Adidas website.

Anyone can buy a shoe for the first time without knowing how comfortable the shoe is.

This seems like a decent shoe. When I look for running shoes, light weight is the first thing I look for and definitely comfort follows the light shoe. As we get closer to March, which is always my unofficial start to spring, I start to research running shoes more and more since I spend half my life running and sprinting at local tracks, running around town, and even in the hiking trails.


Hi Stephen,

Adidas Ultra Boost Running Shoes sound like a great option for my newest running shoe (I’m doing a half marathon as part of my new years resolutions). I particularly like the fact that they listened to customer feedback in creation of these shoes and the customer feedback is very impressive, can you recommend the best place to purchase?


Hi Nate,
Thanks for the question. I would recommend Amazon and JD.
You can also have a look in Finish line, FOOTASYLUM, Foot Locker and Office.

Hope that helps
