The advantage to the runner is an upper design that should be flexible in all the right places and a bit firmer in others, whilst only having one seam where the entire seamless upper material is then curved around the sole and glued together.
Despite the crazy amount of innovations crammed into the shoe Adidas have managed to stop the Primeboost looking too cluttered, keeping the same futuristic knitted ZX vibe that the (very very) limited edition Primeknit Pure Boost had, but beefing it up for more serious athletic use.
Worn by the winners of no less than 17 major marathons and weighing in at just 240g, adidas BOOST foam cushioning provides consistent energy return, which should make every run feel lighter underfoot.
