In recent years, adidas’ space-age Boost foam has helped the German sportswear brand climb up the sneaker food chain. In 2017 more than ever sneakerheads refuse to compromise when it comes to comfort, and options like the adidas Ultra Boost, NMD, and other silhouettes are offering sneaker fans an apt blend of style and coziness. Lately, adidas has also been adding the Boost sole to retro models like the Stan Smith and Superstar.

adidas’ archetypal tennis shoe was treated to a rework for 2017 with a full-length Boost sole. The execution still retains a classic leather upper and signature green hits throughout. Stan would approve.
An apt choice for slushy Spring weather, the Response Trail features eye-catching color blocking courtesy of Japanese fashion brand kolor. The Boost midsole ensures a cushioned ride, while the rugged outsole adds a technical touch.
This uncaged version of the ever-popular Ultra Boost is dressed in a vivid red colorway, rounded out by a clean white Boost sole unit. With this model’s cageless design, you truly feel like you’re wearing socks.
If the unabashed color scheme on the above pair isn’t your speed, this snowy colorway is another, more pared-down version of one of the most comfortable shoes on the market.
Japanese label Bedwin & the Heartbreakers lends a smart pinstripe motif to the NMD_R1, which released in late 2016 but is surprisingly still on select shelves around the world.
As comfortable as adidas’ Boost technology is to run or walk in, Porsche applies the futuristic, highly responsive foam to the Travel Tourer, a driving shoe for the ultra-discerning sneakerhead.
Featuring two of adidas’ highly touted technologies – Boost and Primeknit – this version of the timeless Stan Smith is a surefire hit on and off the court, especially for when the warmer months arrive.
We’ve seen quite a few new takes on the EQT so far in 2017, including this ultra-clean Support silhouette with mixed tan panels on the upper, which imbue the sneaker with a discerning look.
Pusha T’s third encounter with the EQT range, this collaborative version naturally features a Boost sole, grey fish-scale detailing, and fitted Primeknit material comprising the upper.
Although the Pure Boost first released around 2014, adidas waited several years to debut this second generation version, featuring rope laces, a cozy knitted upper and gum outsole.
