Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 7 updates

Reliable traction on wet or dry surfaces

Adidas uses a combination of two types of rubber compounds to form the outsole of the Adizero Boston Boost 7. The Continental and the Stretchweb outsole materials work together to produce a shoe with a reliable grip and a fluid movement for a speedy and efficient run.

Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 7 traction

To promote a problem-free stride and a snappy toe-off, the forefoot area has Continental rubber. This element works by effectively providing traction on both wet and dry surfaces, as it has comparable properties as the rubber tire of a vehicle.

Pass through uphill and downhill with ease

The Continental outsole also helps the runner pass through inclines and downhills with ease. This feature is also present in another Adidas running shoe, the Ultraboost 19.

As the name suggests, the Stretchweb takes on the appearance of a web, and it makes up the rest of the outsole of the Adizero Boston Boost 7.

This design allows the shoe to flex and to follow the runner’s motion with little resistance, therefore enabling for a comfortable and effortless pace.

Adizero Boston Boost 7 provides responsive cushioning

The well-regarded boost midsole gives the Adizero Boston Boost 7 an exceptional level of underfoot comfort. It offers the wearer a luxurious in-shoe feel, while also working hard to deliver the most responsive cushioning and energized ride.

Atop the boost is an ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) layer called the Symmetrical Energy Rail, a supportive unit that increases stability and balance, aiming to improve transitions.

Promotes stability for a smooth transition

Meanwhile, in the midfoot area is the Torsion System, a thermoplastic insert that acts as a bridge between the forefoot and heel. This feature promotes stability for a smooth transition, but without the added weight.

Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 7 engineered mesh

The updated engineered mesh of the Adidas Adizero Boston Boost 7 now produces a lightweight upper that is more breathable compared to its previous version. It has no overlays, as it encourages a comfortable fit without the bulk.

Boston Boost 7 offers lock-down fit

Instead of synthetic overlays, the upper is installed with the Microfit technology. The Microfit is a system that ensures a locked-down fit to reduce slippage and permits the foot with a snug and secure fit, letting the runner go fast without the worry of discomfort and inconvenience.

Beneath the mesh upper is a CoolOver internal lining, which absorbs and evaporates moisture within the shoe to keep the foot clean, dry, and healthy.
