Few modern silhouettes have made as big an impact on the sneaker space as the adidas Ultraboost. Testament to the design’s popularity and supremacy is that it continues to evolve without losing any momentum. It would have been easy for adidas to continue making the first iteration of the style, but now, almost 7 years after its original drop, we’re treated to adidas Ultraboost 22.
Ultraboost 22 continues the trend that Ultraboost 21 began. 21 saw a renewed focus on performance, altering the image that the adidas Ultraboost is just a wildly comfortable lifestyle sneaker. Now, with a bulkier sole unit, raised heel, and lighter upper, the Ultraboost is a fully fledged crossover.
Tapping into an online anatomy database of 1.2 million foot scans, the Ultraboost 22 was refined and re-engineered to create a 360-degree improvement on fit to meet the demands of runners. An all-new upper and LEP torsion system combine with the BOOST midsole for optimal energy return, 4 percent more than the Ultraboost 21.
To lay the track for the shoe that will undoubtedly be our go-to throughout 2022, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite colorways of the style.

Where better to start than Triple Black? This is as versatile as the silhouette comes.
If you're not on the dark side, Triple White offers the same understated versatility with an immaculately clean edge.
Somewhere between Triple White and Triple Black is Magic Grey. The blue/grey hue is a real winner.
In line with the silhouette's sportier feel, this Vivid Red edition brings the dynamism to match.
adidas Y-3 basically began the luxury sneaker movement. It's got a past to be proud of, but only because it's always willing to move on to the next big thing, too.
Aside from the Legacy Purple hits to the sole unit and tongue, this colorway is the OG adidas Ultraboost outfit.
Legacy Purple might be our favorite colorway of the Ultraboost 22. Its dusty hue is understated, but the tonal colorway ensures that it has a big impact.
The Ultraboost 22 has had the winter treatment, too. A more rugged outsole and waterproof upper set the style up to take on adverse conditions.
