We don’t have to speculate anymore whether this is the new Pure BOOST variant – adidas have confirmed it! These days it’s easy to think of BOOST exclusively as a material that can magically add commas to your Paypal account, but adidas haven’t lost sight of its true purpose. They’ve engineered this Pure BOOST with just one thing in mind: running.
The shoe is particularly equipped for navigating the urban sprawl, with a lower heel-to-toe offset and a wider forefoot to help you power around corners. The Stretchweb outsole allows you to cover ground without falling onto it, and the lithely-shaped upper works with the BOOST midsole to reduce energy loss. Combine all this with a palatable mix of greys on the upper and flourishes on colour on the sole, and you’ve got a release bound to hit the ground running.
The adidas Pure BOOST DPR is available now from adidas online.
