The Adidas PulseBoost HD is in stores today and ushers in Adidas’ latest innovation, Boost HD. Boost HD is more stable than traditional Boost while maintaining the same energy return and comfort.
I’m intrigued. A more stable form of Boost could be useful in multiple ways. My initial thoughts went to trail running, weight workouts, and basketball. The WearTesters team has test pairs on the way and so a full performance review of the Adidas PulseBoost HD is coming soon.
To celebrate the launch, a limited edition monochromatic colorway (with Grey boost!) is now available at Adidas.com and Adidas app for $140. Here are direct links to the men’s version and the women’s version.
The link for each each colorway above currently features product images and details. Add to Cart functionality will go live on the respective release dates. For now, you can set a release reminder so you don’t miss out.
Oh, and in case Boost HD isn’t enough to convince you to purchase the PulseBoost HD, Adidas packed in three other selling points:
- Continental™ Adaptive Traxion, a new Continental™ Rubber outsole developed by artificial intelligence, giving maximum grip to quickly change direction on any surface, dry or wet.
- Adapt Knit, a new flexible upper that stretches where you need it.
- Spotify Integration, a QR code on the tongue links directly to a custom playlist based on where you are in the world. Once you’ve scanned the code, you’ll unlock the exclusive playlist.
Now, I could do without the Spotify integration or the new name for knit. After all, I’m probably not going to listen to the playlist and, honestly, how many marketing names do we need for knit? The new Continental traction, however, looks intense. I’m excited to put it through the paces on roads and trails.
