Size and fit

The Adidas Pulseboost HD LTD is available in standard running shoe length. Its stretchable upper construction is sure to accommodate the regular sizing preference of purchasers. However, it is best to test the shoe first or utilize the general feedback of users before purchasing. It is available in a range of sizes for both men and women. 


In the outsole of Adidas Pulseboost HD LTD is the Adaptive Traxion technology, a new Continental Rubber outsole that was developed by artificial intelligence. This rubber outsole provides maximum traction on a variety of surfaces in both dry and wet conditions. It also gives an unbeatable grip to allow the user to quickly change direction.


The midsole unit of Adidas Pulseboost HD LTD utilizes the Boost HD. This high-density version of Boost cushioning is more stable than the traditional boost. It is engineered to provide superior stability with the same quality of comfort and responsiveness. The Boost foam compound also offers endless energy-return from heel strike through the toe-off of the running pace. 

The Boost cushioning technology has been one of Adidas' best assets in recent years.


The Adidas Pulseboost HD LTD uses an Adaptive Knit upper that ensures breathability and support. The textile knit is designed to wrap each foot in breathable comfort to remain dry, cool and comfortable at all times. The non-stretch zones feature of the upper helps increase structure and support, while the overlay feature delivers distraction-free strides.

Additionally, the sock-like construction of the shoe snuggly hugs the foot for a comfortable and irritation-free fit.
