adidas’ tried-and-tested Boost tech gets an upgrade

When it comes to cushioning, adidas’ Boost tech has set the benchmark for the best mix of stability and cushioning. While the tech is six years old, the Three Stripes continues to tweak the Boost formula to cater to different categories. Its latest iteration—known as Boost HD—improves on stability while maintaining the cloud-like comfort Boost is well-known for.

The new iteration will debut with the Pulseboost HD, a running sneaker made for the urban lifestyle. Aside from the new Boost tech, the Pulseboost HD introduces an all-new AdaptKnit upper that stretches at crucial points of your foot. Keeping the traction is a Continental Adaptive Traxion rubber outsole that delivers optimal grip regardless of surface conditions.

An interesting touch with the Pulseboost HD is the QR code on the tongue: scanning it will unlock a custom Spotify Playlist to motivate you in your runs.
