Updates to Adidas Pureboost RBL LTD

  • The Adidas Pureboost RBL LTD just like its original version, the Pureboost RBL, it is an everyday running shoe that’s made for neutral pronators. It has a platform that offers a bouncy and flexible performance. Sure traction across a variety of terrains is provided by the Stretchweb-patterned rubber.
  • The upper unit is made up of a sock-like knit. This fabric resembles woven cloth, and it even has a garter-collar to complete the evocation of a wrap that is similar to a wearing a sock. A water-repellent coat protects against splashes and mild water infiltration.

Adidas Pureboost RBL LTD size and fit

The Adidas Pureboost RBL LTD is true to size, though runners are encouraged to try on the shoe first to get the most pleasant in-shoe experience. The available width is D – Medium. It is worth noting that this product was crafted using the foot-dimensions of men.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Adidas Pureboost RBL LTD makes use of rubber. This layer has a substantial thickness that can be visibly seen. It has semi-prominent nodes that are meant to handle both flat and uneven surfaces.

The Stretchweb design of the outsole evenly distributes the traction nodes throughout the surface of the external pad. This configuration yields shallow trenches that are meant to make the sole unit more flexible.

Midsole

Same as in the popular Adidas Ultra Boost's midsole, Boost is the technology that is used for the midsole unit of the Adidas Pureboost RBL LTD. This full-length compound is born from amalgamated TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) pellets. Its job is to provide bouncy toe-offs and attenuated landings.

Upper

The upper unit of the Adidas Pureboost RBL LTD utilizes an adaptive knit, which has a cloth-like feel. This textile is meant to evoke the feeling of merely wearing a sock. It is flexible and breathable.

A garter collar is tasked with holding the base of the lower leg and supporting the ankles and heel. The encompassing wrap also prevents debris from entering the foot-chamber and affecting performance and comfort.

The façade is coated with a water-repellent layer. This add-on helps in keeping the foot dry when exposed to shallow water sources and other wet conditions.

Fabric eyelets jut out from the instep, acting as lace-loops for the flat shoestrings. These discrete strands aim for a precise fit by directly affecting the structure of the upper, tightening or loosening in tandem with the desires of the wearer.
