The First-ever Skate Shoe with adidas Boost Technology
As we find ourselves in the midst of Yeezy season, adidas has a lot on their plate. Their first-ever collaboration with Kanye West, comprised of the much talked-about Yeezy 750 Boost and an exclusive clothing line, was unveiled on Thursday in NYC, pulling all eyes toward the German sportswear brand.
But the adidas releases don’t stop there. To give their skateboarding category some love, they’ve recently cranked out an inaugural skate shoe with adidas Boost technology, dubbed the ADV BOOST.
All the shoes in adidas’s Boost collection come equipped with under-sole cushioning that returns more energy than the standard EVA material used on traditional sneakers; instead of conventional foam, the midsoles are manufactured with thousands of miniature polyurethane beads, ensuring long-lasting comfort.
The shoe’s outsole utilizes the brand’s exclusively-for-skateboarding Vector Traction, which guarantees stronger board grip for complete control.
Boost tech offers compression rebound and increased absorption upon impact, which is ideal for the incessant stress that skating can put on joints and muscles. The technology was designed to help riders get on and off boards with ease, ensuring a long-lasting, comfortable skate session. It’s also durable in all weather conditions.
Within the ADV BOOST’s construction exists a tech fit internal bootie, crafted from engineered mesh, and SPRINTSKIN, an ultra light microfiber leather. Together, they offer maximum comfort, breathability, and internal stability.
Coming in two colorways, (black/red and gray/light blue), the adidas skateboarding ADV boost is now available at select retailers and online at adidas.com.
