Updates to Adidas Pureboost X TR 3.0 LL
- The Adidas Pureboost X TR 3.0 LL is a cross-training shoe crafted for women who don’t want to be bothered by unruly laces during their workouts. It borrows a lot of the technologies used in the original Pureboost X TR 3.0 version. The trainer inherits the bouncy Boost midsole that imparts all-day comfort. It also sports the floating arch design strengthened by the Stabilizing Torsion System which keeps the midfoot supported during workouts. A rubber compound protects the underside of the shoe and has zoned tread patterns that provide multi-directional traction.
- The obvious alteration is found in the upper. Though it is still made of knit, it is now constructed to be higher. It also ditched the lace-up closure and replaced it with support bands that wrap around the top, bottom, and back portions of the upper. The knit fabric is also breathable to keep the inside aerated during high-intensity exercises.
Adidas Pureboost X TR 3.0 LL size and fit
The Adidas Pureboost X TR 3.0 LL is designed to accommodate the unique shape and dynamics of a woman’s foot. It generally runs true to size and comes in US sizes 5 to 11. As for the width, it is obtainable only in a B - Medium, but the toe box is created to be spacious to facilitate toe splaying. The official Adidas website features a Size Chart tool on the product page. Clicking on it opens a window that instructs consumers on how to measure their feet to acquire the correct shoe size.
The bottom of the Adidas Pureboost X TR 3.0 LL is fortified by a full-length rubber. The compound is made to be hard-wearing, flexible, and grippy. It forms a cup around the midsole and extends upwards at the forefoot area to render support during side-to-side movements.
The outsole features zoned tread patterns. It uses a combination of chevron and horizontal lines to enhance flexibility and traction in different directions.
The trainer got its name after the Boost technology used in its midsole. This cushioning unit is engineered with EVA foam pellets that have undergone heat treatment to adhere to one another. The end product is said to be a material that is softer and more responsive than the traditional EVA. It absorbs shock and bounces energy back to be ready for the next impact.
The floating arch features a compression fit adaptive component. This component allows the arch to hug the bottom of the foot and facilitate natural foot flexion. To prevent excessive movements that could lead to straining, the floating arch is reinforced with the Stabilizing Torsion System. This structure creates a bridge between the forefoot and the heel to keep the arch area protected.
Another feature that the Adidas Pureboost X TR 3.0 LL uses is the EVA sockliner. This soft and responsive insole enhances the cushioning and support offered by the midsole.
The high-cut bootie design of the Adidas Pureboost X TR 3.0 LL provides users not only with style but ankle support as well. It is made of knit, a soft and lightweight material that adapts to the expansion of the foot during workouts. Its slip-on style makes it easier to put on or take off the trainer. Its sock-like fit ensures that the shoe stays in place during workouts.
Instead of a lace-up structure, the footgear features supportive bands across the forefoot, under the arch, and around the heel. They aim to lock the foot down without restricting its movements.
A synthetic overlay is found on the toe box. This element keeps the area protected against abrasion during workouts. It also shields the toes from bumps while exercising.
At the back of the shoe is the external heel counter. This plastic structure ensures that the rearfoot is steady during dynamic movements.
Those who favor high-top workout trainers might as well consider workout shoes from Puma, such as the Puma Phenom and the Puma Fierce collection.
