adidas Boost cushioning continues to make its way into many of the Three Stripes' products, from running and basketball shoes to lifestyle options like the Pure Boost and even baseball cleats. Now, they're bringing the technology into the weight room with the RG3 Energy Boost. The first training shoe to feature Boost technology, this sleek design is equipped with everything you need for a strong session in the gym and also looks great when worn casually, so you won't have to lug around an extra pair to change into.

The synthetic upper of the adidas RG3 Energy Boost is filled with perforations on the toe and lateral areas, which will keep you cool and dry whether you're hitting the weights or cardio. A soft textile collar is added for comfort and support, while a midfoot strap is attached to the sturdy heel cup for extra lockdown and stability. Boost cushioning is used in heel of the adidas RG3 Energy Boost, which is exactly where you'll need it most when pounding the gym floor. Finally, the adidas RG3 Energy Boost's rubber outsole features RG3 branding and a grippy notched pattern than is also suitable for turf use.
