Adidas ZX 1K Boost gets you going minus the foot aches
Adidas changed the sneaker landscape by injecting Boost-soled kicks into its massive catalog. After seeing this technology in Ultraboost runners, NMD lifestyle kicks, the Three Stripes rolls out retroed running shoes incorporating the same midsole element, like in some of the Adidas ZX kicks.
Such a pillowy comfort offered by this micro-foamed cushioning unit is injected into the Adidas ZX 1K Boost. But unlike other shoes from the same line, this sneaker’s winning feature is the combination of a half-Boost, half-EVA midsole offering a comfy ride. The springy Boost that takes up the rear side offers energy return during heel strike, while the standard foam in front help absorbs shock efficiently.
A quick comparison with other Boost buddies
- Adidas ZK 1K Boost grabs a sleeker look when set side by side the partly robust-looking Nite Jogger.
- Compared to the ZX 2K Boost with a plasticky material wrapping the rear midsole, the ZX 1K Boost feels squishier.
- Like the best-selling Adidas NMD_R1, the wide range of colorways available for this kick give you the flexibility to squeeze it into several casual and activewear.
