Adidas Alphatorsion Boost: All-around, supportive shoe

The Alphatorsion Boost offers a good blend of comfort, responsiveness, and support. The Boost midsole encourages a cozy and bouncy feel, miles after miles. The 360 Torsion System also delivers a good amount of support both forward and side-to-side.

The shoe is best for:

  • Long-distance, uptempo runs
  • All-day wear
  • Cross-training sessions

Good to know

The Alphatorsion is also available in another variant - the Alphatorsion Bounce. Instead of using Adidas Boost, the version is equipped with the Bounce cushioning, which feels a little firmer but still has the responsiveness and impact protection needed for both long-distance efforts and tempo days.
