Adidas Ultra 4D vs Adidas Ultraboost: The defining elements

Crafted with a familiar design, the Adidas Ultra 4D incorporates the popular knit top that we have loved in the well-known Ultraboost running shoe line. Here are some of the major differences between these Adidas shoes:

  • Instead of the signature Boost midsole, a firmer cushioning system called innovative Futurecraft 4D technology is used in the Adidas Ultra 4D. 
  • Compared to the Ultraboost shoe, the Adidas Ultra 4D is definitely on the heavier side. 
  • The traditional “Ultra Boost” branding found on Ultraboost’s heel counter has been replaced with “Ultra 4D”.
