Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 Review
Shoe review is pleasant to read. Because it is difficult to choose shoes, the right shoes are found with trial-and-error but this is also an expensive method. So if someone has tried, tried and shared the experience with you voluntarily, it would be nice.
However, it contains a danger or risk. What is this danger / risk? Each individual’s foot is different, special. So are his legs. As it stands, the pitch, the push to the ground and the form of running are also sick. While this is all so different, it can be dangerous to accept someone else’s experiences as they are.
Well, then, is it also meaningless to write shoes review? Of course not. It is important to keep these differences in mind and to read and write in light of this fact. The author should refrain from writing his / her own perception, should take the shoes more objectively, and the reader should never forget that objectivity is never subjective. I’ve also written shoe reviews on this blog. I hope I can reflect this point of view. If you want to write more of a review after a long time, please read from this perspective as well. The shoes I handle are Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0.
First of all, I have to say that even I was surprised when I think about it, but I guess I haven’t run with an Adidas brand. If I ran, it’s a very old time, I don’t remember. So it’s a little unfortunate to be able to make a new experience for me and not compare it with other models.
It was very different when I first saw Adidas Ultra Boost. I’m sure a lot of people have felt the same way. Because it really has a different view and many innovations and different approaches in design.
The upper part of the lattice material we’re used to seeing in many brands recently. Six is a wholly white, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) top, which is called Boost. The two things that appear on the shoe except those two: the stylus of the brand that creates the nest of ropes, the rigid plastic states of the three bands and the hard plastic structure surrounding the heel. The appearance of the shoe causes the minister to perceive him too lightly. But in fact it is not exactly; The US11 weighs 333 g.
The first thing that needs to be mentioned is the Boost material that forms the base. Adidas invented this material together with BASF, a leading chemical company. They produce the TPU in the form of small energy balls and then assemble them in a mold. The base obtained in this way is said to provide the highest energy return in the running shoe secondary.
What do you mean, the base has a high energy return? That means less energy lost. In other words, it means that the energy consumed by the runner minimizes the lost part during the step. You may have seen some apparatus in the brand’s stores where you can drop heavy metal balls from a certain height and watch the energy return. If you have not seen you can easily find and watch on the internet.
Another difference of EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate), which is the standard material of running shoe soles, is that the material does not harden in cold weather, except that the material minimizes lost energy.
In very cold weather, the EVA soles become slightly stiffer / rigid than in normal conditions. TPU doesn’t act like this. Another detail about the material – you’ve realized – the base is white on all models, ie the natural color of the material. The reason for this by Adidas is that if the paint is added, the material will lose its advantageous properties. Therefore, the base of all models with Boost is white.
The last note is where I read and I can’t remember the details: The information that the material or material used to produce Boost is limited on the planet. I don’t remember the details of the subject, but I don’t think that a polymer or anything used to produce it would be limited. If you know something about it, please write it as a comment. On the other hand, since technology is currently only in the hands of Adidas, it is certain that Boost is limited on the planet, since they are the amount to be produced and therefore the price.
Top of the Shoe
Most of the top of the shoe is made of knitted material (Nike says Flyknit, Adidas is Primeknit). I say the big part because the back of the wrist is a different material. The front part is completely knit but the different regions are woven in different styles. There is probably a structure of knitting that is determined by the point of breathing and aging. This mesh is flexible. If you take a small number on your feet, you can stretch and flex as flexible as you can. This has some implications. I cannot label these effects as positive or negative because they can vary depending on the expectations and habits of the runner.
For example; front of your foot when running, especially if your thumb is very curling upward, this material will not stop curling by taking support, the material will continue to curl and curl. This caused me to feel weird at first, but after a while I got used to it. Another effect is that if the shape of the base is prominent, the extreme flexibility of the upper part acts against the integrity between the two. In the beginning it was very strange, but I got used to it. I usually pierce your shoes. I’ve made a lot of distance on this shoe, and I couldn’t punch it. The reason for this is that both the structure of the knitting is strong and the use of an additional material at the tip of the finger.
The upper part is very high on the wrist. But it doesn’t bother people because of its flexibility and its wrapper structure. It feels good even when it’s used to. The ropes and the tongue are not separate, so they are worn like shoes. It is not difficult to do this because it is flexible. The front of the wrist – the tongue part – and the back – the upper part – are very high. Holding it around here makes it even easier.
The circumference of the wrist and the tongue have a very soft filling. This creates a feeling that is both soft and tight. When you put the shoe on the feet it feels like there is no need to tie the rope, but the superstructure of the superstructure makes it impossible. It is very difficult and exhausting to run in such a soft and flexible booties, and a gripper structure has been designed in the form of three bands of Adidas in the comb, inside and outside of hard plastic (hard but not too hard, easily bendable).
The ropes pass through the end of these three bands. When you pull and tie the ropes, you create a cage that wraps the foot and prevents its excessive movements. The thing that pushed me the most in this cage was not being able to determine how much I tightened the ropes. If you press too tightly, you feel the bands in your foot comb, but if you loose, the cage does not work. The difference is very little, but people get used to it. I’m aware of, bu as you use ım or da after a while-um I’m used to ım I’ve formed a lot of sentence ”maybe I’ll build it ık but this is inevitable in an innovative design.
It was very helpful to use the shoe in short distances on hard ground, recovery or mileage runs. This shoe is ideal for me to run 10 km or 1 hour on hard ground or to make short light tempo on the tape while trying to increase my weekly volume. Another runner can come to a different conclusion. In longer runs, I begin to feel the details of the layers of the base. This may be due to the way the press was pushed. I felt comfortable walking on hard ground with tired legs, which I liked.
Back press is comfortable. I didn’t work hard, but when I was fast, the wrapper structure was going to support me, and the extremely soft and flexible structure felt like it was going to slow me down. So I was able to accelerate comfortably, but it didn’t work for long.
I felt like I was moving too far from what I expected on the tempo trials that I stepped hard. When this couple is old, will I think of a new one – perhaps the new version? Yeah. Why is that? Because of the positivity I mentioned, it is very comfortable in appropriate conditions.
I hope it’s useful. Good practice.
