Adidas Ultraboost 21

  • Easy Run / Long Runs / Marathon (New to marathoning? This is for you!) / Everyday Running
  • One of the most comfortable shoes to run in the market
  • Terrific traction with the Continental rubber
  • Personally, I believe the Adidas Boost foam technology is the most resilient in the industry and retains its bounce for the lifespan of the shoe.
  • It’s on the heavy side, but if you aren’t looking to squeeze every ounce of performance out of the shoe, do you really care? Comfort is key for me.
  • It’s a bit pricy, but if you want a shoe that will last your 6-12months, this is it!
