adidas’ performance line is separated by two: there’s the Boost-equipped line like the UltraBoost, and there’s the Bounce-equipped line like the AlphaBounce. Both have their respective pros and cons, and fans clamor for something that combines the best of both worlds. The result? The AlphaBoost.
This new model uses the silhouette of the AlphaBounce and replaces its Bounce midsole with a Boost midsole that cups through your feet for better support and stability. While adidas markets it as a running sneaker, the AlphaBoost is closer to the AlphaBounce as it is a shoe that is made for the gym and not for long-distance runs.
