When the adidas Energy Boost was introduced to the running world back in 2012, it unveiled the revolutionary BOOST midsole foam that lasts for the life of the shoe – the same cushion from mile one to mile 500 – and delivers excellent energy return with each step.
Now the adidas Energy Boost 4 has arrived at Fleet Feet Sports – Chicago and continues to build on that incredible legacy of cushion.
Under the foot you’ll still have the super-soft feel and super-springy ride that you’ll only get with the BOOST midsole. BOOST foam is made up of thousands of individual energy capsules – giving the midsole that distinctive ‘pebbled’ appearance, which provides springy cushion every time the foot hits the ground.
BOOST also adapts to a great range of temperatures, you’ll still have a great ride and cushion whether the temperature is nudging into the triple digits or dropping below zero.
The big change in the adidas Energy Boost 4 comes in the upper package for a snug, yet softer and lightweight, fit. adidas uses ARAMIS engineered mesh – a textile that hugs the foot and provides support where you need it – on the upper for a secure fit that is also breathable and moves with the foot.
The midfoot and forefoot construction of the upper has been simplified to offer a little more space where needed, while the asymmetrical quarter panel gives support with a softer fit.
Also new for the adidas Energy Boost 4 is the addition of Continental Rubber – the same rubber used in tires for superior traction on all surfaces – to the STRETCHWEB outsole, which adapts to the runner’s foot strike and releases the full potential of the BOOST foam for a smoother and more flexible ride.
