Which performance Boost sneaker is for you?

adidas has expanded its Boost-equipped offering ever since it officially unveiled the tech with the Energy Boost in 2012. While it is arguably the most comfortable cushioning tech in recent memory, there are many Boost variations that offer different levels of comfort and cushioning—especially with the Performance line.

Pulse Boost HD: more performance-oriented with a denser Boost midsole, giving it a firmer ride

UltraBoost: more for lifestyle, but still geared for running
