Updates to Climachill Sonic Boost

The Adidas Climachill Sonic Boost was made to handle warm weather and those times when the foot just can’t handle the discomfort brought about by a sunny day. This shoe gives 360-degree ventilation because of an upper technology that has an open construction. Any runner is sure to get a comfortable and cool running experience when wearing this shoe.

The upper unit uses some of the most comfortable materials and fabrics that are used for running shoes. Lightweight and breathable coverage is handled by a mesh material and the Climachill®, which make sure the foot stays dry and cool. Synthetic overlays hug the foot well by adapting to the adjustments made to the lacing system.

The mid-sole unit of the Adidas Climachill Sonic Boost uses proprietary technologies to give comfort, responsiveness and support to the foot of the wearer. Shock absorption and energy return are part of the service given by this durable yet flexible platform.

A strong rubber material covers the sole unit from the exterior and keeps it protected from wear and abrasion. It also gives responsible traction that’s dependable and sure. It doesn’t peel off easily, so it stays efficient, even after many uses.

Climachill Sonic Boost size and fit

The Adidas Climachill Sonic Boost has a regular running shoe length. It follows the appropriate measurements when it comes to men and women’s sizes. The heel, mid-foot and forefoot sections have a medium width, so it accommodates runners who have medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape allows the natural shape of the foot to acclimate well to it.


A durable rubber compound is used for the outsole unit of this running shoe. It is able to protect the rest of the sole unit from wear and tear, keeping the platform intact and undamaged. This compound itself doesn’t easily wear off, so it stays efficient through many uses and long running activities.

The sole unit is flexible, so it allows the foot to move as naturally as it wants. It is particularly evident during the toe-off phase because the forefoot area is where the foot mostly bends fully.


The ADIPRENE®+ technology makes sure that the runner receives excellent cushioning and energy return throughout the gait cycle. But it’s also meant to deliver a bit of springiness, so that each lift of the foot becomes more enabled.

The boost™ technology is made from TPU pellets that have been compacted together. They return energy to the runner, so each step taken becomes more energized. It’s placed between the forefoot and mid-foot sections.

An EVA Platform is directly placed against the foot. This is made from a soft and responsive compound, so the underfoot experience is comfortable. It attenuates shock and keeps the foot well-supported all throughout. It doesn’t lose structure easily, so it remains dependable, even after a long time.


A breathable mesh material serves as the main fabric of the Adidas Climachill Sonic Boost. It is lightweight and breathable, so it keeps the foot cool and dry at all times.

Synthetic overlays are placed right on top of the mesh material. It is connected directly to the lacing system, so it hugs the foot well in accordance with the adjustments made to the shoelaces.

360-degree breathability is afforded by the climachill™ technology. The material itself dries quickly and it even keeps the foot comfortable because of its soft nature. Wearing the Adidas Climachill Sonic Boost brings optimum comfort to the wearer.
