adidas unveils the latest member of its most iconic running shoe franchise – the Ultraboost Light. A testament to adidas’ constant strive to take its innovation to the next level to design the perfect shoe for the different type of runners and in response to consumer feedback, the new Ultraboost Light has a ground-breaking new material at its core – the Light BOOST.
Marking a decade since the introduction of BOOST technology, the new and improved Ultraboost Light benefits from 30% lighter BOOST material, resulting in a performance running shoe designed to offer epic energy, ultimate cushioning, unrivalled comfort, and responsiveness.
Simon Lockett, Footwear Product Marketing Category Director, at adidas said: “At adidas, we know that running is personal. Everyone has a different goal and therefore, different requirements for their shoes.
That is why we’re continuously looking at ways to improve our products for the adidas running community. Now, thanks to our ground-breaking material innovation – Light BOOST – runners retain the existing benefits of running in an Ultraboost, but with the bonus of a lighter silhouette.”
Dr. Matthew Klein, Chief Editor and Founder, Doctors of Running: “Running with tired or heavy legs can be uncomfortable, and heavy shoes may play a role in this sensation for some people.
Lighter shoes however tend to make running more efficient, meaning they can potentially improve performance for both elite runners, but also entry and everyday runners.”
Taking runners’ experiences to the next level, the all-new Ultraboost Light also boasts:
- A redesigned LEP: the Linear Energy Point found on the sole of the shoe has been reworked to optimize responsiveness and work in harmony with the new Light BOOST material.
- PRIMEKNIT+ upper: Built for ultimate breathability and comfort, the shoe features a lightweight upper, providing an adapted fit.
- Continental™ natural performance rubber: Provides optimum traction for a confident run in any weather condition.
- A 10% lower carbon footprint*: The new Ultraboost Light benefits from a lower carbon footprint compared to previous versions.
The new Ultraboost Light will launch in a white colourway, featuring solar red and core black detailing, priced at €190 – and is available to purchase from in-store and online at adidas.com/running-shoes, with Early Access for members of the adidas Adi Club from today.
