Adidas Ultra Boost Provides plenty of bounce and even more cushion. The cooks at Adidas have been busy creating a more cushioned Boost foam to improve their signature bouncy ride. More cushioning costs a bit in terms of energy return–how quickly the sole recovers its form after each footstrike–but the Ultra Boost’s bounce-back quality is still higher than for any other shoe we’ve measured with this level of softness. The updated sole consists of a stretchy rubber in an open grid pattern that adapts to your foot’s movement and makes for a smoother transition from heel-strike to toe-off. The toe is angled up higher, which further helps the shoe roll. Some runners may find the rigid plastic overlays around the heel and arch uncomfortable, but if the shoe fits, get ready for an ultra cushioned, responsive ride.
