Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultra Boost X Mid History
The Adidas and Stella McCartney partnership started in 2005 when the iconic designer signed on with Adidas to create cutting-edge designs for the athletic wear company. The range, Adidas by Stella McCartney, was the first sports performance line created for women and designed by a luxury fashion designer. This range usually launches two collections per year for the Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter and is known for providing high-fashion standout style combined with the technical performance of Adidas technologies. The collection includes apparel, footwear, and accessories.
In 2015, Adidas launched the UltraBoost, hailed by the brand to be the “greatest running shoe ever.” It was hugely popular, not only with runners, but with sneakerheads and fashionistas as well who loved the combined style and comfort.
For 2017, the Adidas by Stella McCartney range took the Ultra Boost model and reinterpreted and adapted the shoe to the unique shape of the female foot. The first shoe to come out of the collection was the Ultra Boost X, a low top released in February. It had a slimmer heel counter than the original Ultra Boost and a free-floating arch. It also had a creative lacing system to support swift turns and movements.
Six months later, on August 1, the Ultra Boost X Mid followed. Like the Ultra Boost X, it had a free-floating arch. It also had a metallic Primeknit upper that extended up to the calf.

The trendy athletic style of the Ultra Boost X Mid needs no further adornments. Just throw on a lightweight top along with leggings and jeans, and you’re good to go.
Fit & Sizing
The Ultra Boost X Mid by Stella McCartney is available in women’s sizes which range from 5 to 10.5. Since the shoe has a woven upper, the footwear offers minimal support. The shoe accommodates different foot types because of the flexible fit.
The Adidas by Stella McCartney Ultra Boost X Mid is packed full of Adidas technologies. The shoe boasts of the iconic Primeknit upper that gives a sock-like feel and comfort, the Boost technology for a responsive cushioning, and the Torsion system for a smooth and stable ride. A Continental rubber outsole gives the shoe excellent grip and traction in both wet and dry conditions.
- The shoe features a free-floating arch which molds to the shape of the wearer’s foot.
