The UltraBOOST X is not just a running shoe but also an all-day, everyday workhorse of a sneaker.
Writing about the new adidas UltraBOOST X is similar to thinking about gift options for a person who already has it all. For UltraBOOST aficionados, this latest model is a worthy addition to the already impressive UltraBOOST line. For the curious, the UltraBOOST X is the perfect shoe to welcome one’s feet to the world of unparalleled comfort, cushioning and performance.
First off, the silhouette of the UltraBOOST X appears sleeker, thanks to the ‘uncaged’ appearance- meaning, the panel that holds the laces is no longer visibly connected to the heel counter. Adidas claims that the cage and the support features have been moved to the inside of the shoe. I’ll take their word for it since I have no plans of cutting open this fine-looking sneaker.
The UltraBOOST X possesses all the features that make the UltraBOOST line world-famous- this time with enhancements and modifications. Adidas developed a new PrimeKnit composition primarily designed for perfect fit and maximum comfort. The PrimeKnit upper molds to my feet perfectly, effectively eliminating chafing! Speaking of comfort, the UltraBOOST X features ventilation panels, making it perfect for summer running. It may be 35 degrees Celsius out on the pavement, but my feet stayed relatively sweat-free and comfortable, be it while running or simply running errands.
Of course, fan-favorite features such as the Adaptive Arch, the BOOST mid-sole and the 3D Heel Counter are all accounted for. All deliver enhanced support, excellent fit and out-of-this-world cushioning. During a run, the 3D Heel Counter keeps my ankles stable by controlling and eliminating any unwanted lateral movement. Again, the BOOST mid-sole generates smooth forward movement without a hitch or pause, propelling me to run and walk faster and longer. The Adaptive Arch keeps my feet and legs comfortable all day long, proving that the UltraBOOST X is not just a running shoe but also an all-day, everyday workhorse of a sneaker.
The adidas UltraBOOST X is a light, airy, ultra-comfortable and high-performing shoe that improves on an already superior range of running shoes. Stay fit and comfortable during the hot summer months in the new Adidas UltraBOOST X.
