New Kicks: First Look at the adidas Ultra Boost X

February 21, the adidas Ultra Boost X was launched in Manila. The same adidas running shoe we all love made bigger and better. I've heard so many good things about this new design, so I was definitely thrilled to be one of the first to take these babies for a test run. It was a perfect day at the BGC Arts Center, the sun shone bright, and the energy of the adidas team was pure excitement. Before anything else, here's a first look at the adidas Ultra Boost X! 

Hows that for a running shoe? Still with floating arch technology for maximum support.

I've posted an unboxing of this beaut on my Instagram stories when I received my pair. If you haven't followed me yet, check out my profile @kayleenortiz. My personal favorite of all the added features is the new primeknit upper. They made the top of the shoe flexible, hugging your foot allowing it to actively adjust to the way you move as you run. With this design, it doesn't feel like you've got shoes on at all. It actually feels more like a perfect sock! You can go fast, you can go slow, and still expect maximum energy return with every stride. It gives you the feeling that your pair of adidas Ultra Boost X's was made specifically for you.  

Other added features include: 

1. boost™ the most responsive cushioning ever: The more energy you give, the more you get
2. STRETCHWEB rubber outsole flexes underfoot for an energised ride
3. Dynamic arch for adaptive fit; TORSION® SYSTEM between the heel and forefoot for a stable ride
4. Continental™ Rubber outsole for extraordinary grip in wet and dry conditions

The adaptive support of this design guarantees maximum comfort while you give it your best out on the track. Which is basically what I love most about this brand. You can trust that their products will perform perfect as promised, so you can focus on the sport without worrying about anything else. I've literally never had an adidas sports bra fail on me, even if I'm high up in the air doing drops on the silks. It's really just a icing on the cake that they make you look sharp while you're at it. ;)

The adidas Ultra Boost is now available in stores. But you've gotta act fast, these babies run out quick! Visit for more details.
