Debuting in early 2015, the adidas Ultraboost is indisputably one of the most popular running sneakers of all time. Marathon runners, park joggers, and quick-sprint-to-the-store wearers the world over pledge allegiance to the line, and once you try a pair on, it's easy to see why. Over the last six years, this goes-hard-on-comfort design has had several major updates and the latest heir to the Ultraboost throne is here  — the Ultraboost 21.

The newest member of the Ultraboost family sees adidas double down on performance, incorporating a new Torsion system for a more responsive run, more Boost capsules, providing greater energy return and comfort, as well as an integrated Primeblue textile made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic.

To welcome the latest in a long line of greats, we’ve rounded up our favorite adidas Ultraboost 21 models. From signature monochrome Ultraboost colorways to newcomers that play up the increased focus on performance, the eclectic palette cements the fact that the adidas Ultraboost is as suited to lifestyle rotations as it is beating your personal-bests.
