Anything that has its own dedicated week has to have earned it. Take Boost technology, for example. This groundbreaking sole tech can be thanked for propelling the adidas Ultraboost to new heights. Since its original release in February 2015, the adidas Ultraboost has grown to become one of the brand’s flagship sneakers, epitomizing the ease with which the Three Stripes straddles both lifestyle looks and athletic prowess. The fact that in just five years the Ultraboost has elevated itself to levels previously reserved for the Superstar and Stan Smith is all the proof we need that Boost deserves its own week.

To celebrate Boost Week, adidas is dropping seven exclusive Boost designs from new Ultraboost models to some futuristic Climacool iterations. In our capacity as sneakerheads, we’d be remiss to not also celebrate Boost Week in our own way. That’s why we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite Boost silhouettes, covering the inimitable Ultraboost through to some winter-ready Terrex hiking boots.

One of our favorite developments in the Ultraboost franchise so far has been the introduction of the Winter.RDY style. Maintaining the lightweight construction we all love, technical material choices and a toggled lacing system make this pair water-resistant and rugged enough for winter wear.
