Earlier this month, adidas created a considerable amount of buzz upon unveiling their breakthrough midsole construction known as Boost. The first model to utilize the innovative setup is the adidas Energy Boost, which was officially released today. The Energy Boost features a number of familiar adidas technologies, such as the durable Adiwear outsole and supportive Torsion System. But the real draw of these just-released runners is the Boost midsole, which is touted to provide more energy return and responsiveness than standard cushioning, such as EVA. Sneaker Report's team recently tested the sneaker out and were thrilled with the new tech, emphasizing its ability to maintain its cushion/spring after weeks of rigorous use. Also noted was the fact that Boost foam, unlike EVA, is temperature-resistant, allowing it to perform efficiently regardless of the environment. If you want to experience a running feel unlike any before, check out the adidas Energy Boost today.
