A girl can never have too many pairs of shoes, especially when it comes to running shoes! I’ve been a huge fan of Adidas ‘UltraBoosts’ ever since September last year, when my husband bought me a pair for my birthday. I had previously heard a lot of hype about them, so I couldn’t wait to take them out for a test run!
Since then, I have run over 90 miles in my UltraBoosts! They are MEGA!
Last week I was invited to the launch of Adidas’s latest running shoe, designed specifically for women, the pureBOOSTX. Adidas have teamed up with female athletes from around the world to create this unique running shoe.
My first impressions . . . the pureBOOSTX looks great. The design is sleek and petite, the perfect addition to a fashion forward gym kit. The foam sole of the shoe is similar to the ultraboost, they provide a great cushion and bounce. The fit feels tight but flexible, the mesh material literally hugs your feet.
Once we were all laced up, we were introduced to non other than GB athlete Jodie Williams and personal trainer Melissa Weldon. Jodie and Melissa lead us through a warm up exercises and some fast feet skills and drills. We were then divided into pairs and we lined up at the start line for a relay race. Anyone that knows me, knows that I can be a little competitive. (okay maybe more than a little) I raced against Celia (aka LondonFitnesssGuide) & AJ Odudu. What a brilliant way to test out those new kicks!
Once the fitness fun was over, we ate, drank and danced to a live dj. Thank you Adidas for having me, I can’t wait to take my pureBOOSTX out for a road run!
