For the last four weeks I have been running (A LOT) in the brand new women’s running shoe, the ultraBOOSTX. Adidas have created a shoe, specifically designed for the female athlete. It is a fusion of two of my favourite running shoes, the ultraBOOST and the pureBOOSTX.
One of the things that I love the most about running is that it can not be defined and that makes it accessible to everyone! It doesn’t matter how far you go, or how fast, if you run, then you are a runner. I have been running constantly for almost three years, this year I’m facing my biggest running challenge so far, as I will be taking on the London Marathon in April.
It’s really important for me to be running in the best shoes, especially as I am currently clocking about 24 miles each week. In an attempt to remain injury free whilst training, I have been supporting my road running with some treadmill sessions, cycling and resistance training too. I’ve been wearing the ultraBOOSTX for 90% of my training. From a technical perspective, they tick every box for me as well as the fact that the silhouette and colour way look great too.
Last month I went to the global launch event of the ultraBOOSTX in San Francisco. At the launch we were invited to test out the shoes over five different running routes as well as speaking to the shoe designer and creative team from the adidas head quarters in Germany.
