Finding the perfect shoes takes time. You have to play around with the amount of cushioning for support and the weight of the shoes for easier and smoother run cadence. adidas Ultra boost gives you both a cushioned sole and support and at the same time stays lightweight at about 9.5 ounces. It gives you a soft cushy feel when running or walking which goes a long way when you factor in the number of foot strikes you do in a run. The seamless prime knit shoe material gives a snug fit feel yet remains flexible in terms of foot natural expansion and shift in strides. The energy boost material of the ultra boost rewards powerful strides with a more powerful return and the cushioned feel limits impact on the feet, which can get you going on the longer runs.
