Traction. The outsole of the Adidas Marquee Boost features a zonal herringbone traction pattern. Depending on the colorway, the outsoles of these Adidas shoes come in either gum, solid, or translucent rubber. The translucent rubber is reported to attract a bit of dust, but it’s not something that minimal wiping cannot fix.
