Updates to Adidas Solar Boost ST 19

  • The Solar Boost ST 19 is an Adidas running shoe that is meant for those who like a blend of stylistic elements and functional accouterments. The silhouette utilizes a sporty yet subdued look to emphasize a step towards contemporary designs. A mesh upper offers flexible coverage and it’s bolstered by the Tailored Fiber Placement, an overlay system that is made of a zigzag of lightweight yarns instead of the traditionally weight-bearing layers.
  • Boost™ is the cushioning technology that governs this product. It is bolstered by a bevy of stability mechanisms to support the arch and keep it from buckling at any point during the run. Overpronators are the focus of this configuration. Continental™ rubber is used for the outsole unit.

Size and fit

Standard sizing methods govern the creation of the Adidas Solar Boost ST 19. Runners are, thereby, welcome to make a purchase decision with their usual choices of size in mind. However, it is also wise to test the shoe first or inquire about the accuracy of the size options from various sources to fully achieve a comfortable in-shoe experience.

A foot-shaped platform outline and a stretchy upper unit contribute to a foot-wrap that aims to be form-welcoming. The sideways fit is also affected by the presence of a traditional lacing system on this shoe’s bridge, as well as the set of stitching that makes up the overlay system.


The outsole unit of the Adidas Solar Boost ST 19 is made of Continental™ rubber. This compound has the goal of shielding the base of the cushioning unit form the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It is derived from rubber used for car tires, so durability is also one of its selling pitches.


Boost™ serves as the main midsole unit. This piece is tested and proven to make the step springy and well-cushioned. It is lightweight and flexible enough to welcome the natural motion of the foot. This midsole technology is an Adidas staple. It graces the juggernaut Ultra Boost family of products.

A dual-density version of Boost™ on the medial side of the platform offers stability to the arch.


The upper unit of the Adidas Solar Boost ST 19 is made of breathable mesh. This material offers breathable and secure support.

A bevy of stitched-on yarns called Tailored Fiber Placement replaces traditional overlays, delivering the same security albeit in a lightweight and non-restricting method.

A Fitcounter piece is placed on the rear part of the facade. This accouterment is meant to lock the heel in place and prevent it from wobbling or exiting the shoe involuntarily.
