The adidas Ultra Boost isn’t exactly a stranger to a little extra protection on the toebox, but this is still a sleek execution. The Ultra Boost ST always comes with a heat-bonded layer on the toe and the Porsche Design Boost almost had a full rubber exoskeleton, but the Ultra Boost ADV keeps it minimal with thin taping curving around the toe box. No word on what the taping is for just yet – not even from adidas online. Maybe it’s a hint of weather proofing, maybe it’s for durability, maybe it’s just there to look cool. Either way we’re down with it.
This women’s adidas Ultra Boost ADV in ‘Dark Navy’ will be available from Size? very shortly.
