Like most Adidas Ultraboost models, the Adidas Ultraboost 2.0 utilizes the Continental rubber. This component of the shoe is meant to withstand any weather conditions, both wet and dry.

Being one of the most durable outsole technologies in the market today, the rubber gives the user the ability to control over a wide variety of surfaces. This is possible by increasing the grip it provides by 15-30% when compared to other models.

A more responsive Boost midsole is integrated into the Adidas Ultraboost 2.0. It is described as a lightweight material that is strategically made to protect the foot from ground impact. This boost foam technology foam is made of thermoplastic polyurethane pellets that work hand in hand to form a more comfortable layer. As a result, the movement of the user's foot is not limited. 

Another technology featured in the midsole area of the running shoe is the Torsion System. This plastic bridge insert is used in crafting the shoe to provide torsional stability. It also enhances heel-to-toe transition without adding too much weight to the footwear.

Another feature of the shoe is the lace closure system. This system lets the runner experience a more comfortable fit.

The Adidas Ultraboost has evolved over a period of time. In the recent months, Adidas featured the Ultraboost 2.0 “City Series”. Being one of the users favorite shoes, Adidas added two iterations, which include the New York and Paris series. 

The black, white, and grey gradient upper is integrated into the NYC pair.  Along with these colors is paired with American flag detailing. This is seen as raised stripes in shoe's cage.
