Continental Stretchweb outsole

Adidas continues to use the Continental-made Stretchweb outsole for its durability and traction. Although the outsole looks and feels thinner, it is already proven to last more than the average underfoot protection. The Stretchweb helps the runner maximize his stride as it adapts to the runner’s motion for efficiency and support.

Enhanced responsiveness in the midsole

Previous Boost models sport only 80% of the Boost midsole while the Ultraboost ST features 100% of it in the midsole. With 20% more of these TPU energy pellets, runners are sure to have a more responsive ride.

The Boost midsole in this shoe number around 3,000 capsules that mass together every time the runner lands and then uses the same force to make the run even more dynamic.

Energized stability with Ultraboost ST midsole

Holding the shoe together and making each transition smoother is a plastic insert called the Torsion System. It helps support the arch and allows freedom of movement for the heel and forefoot.

Adida's Primeknit upper

An engineered mesh basically covers the whole upper. It is extremely light and breathable. The Primeknit upper is Adidas’ proprietary digital process of knitting a yarn that adapts very well to the runner’s foot.
