adidas UltraBoost Uncaged Performance Review

Look, up in the sky, it’s…another adidas Running review. Why? Because adidas is killing the game, setting new bars, and basically dropping bombs every release. Most of all, the models being released perform which is why we are here. Let us explain why you need Boost in your life…

Uncaged - Score Card


  1. Great review! Since you have been running in all 3 UltraBoost models (regular, ST and Uncaged), could you please compare them and tell which are the best choice for different kind of needs? Thanks in advance

    1. Yeah, that’s a great idea. I would like the same analysis Duke : ) by the way, you do a really awesome job Bryan, and we’re privileged to have you reviewing these shoes for the public. Thanks for all your hard work

        1. Sorry – couple days late but here goes – ultra and uncaged are the same shoe – neutral, cushioned to the max, comfy stretch upper.

          ST has a higher medial sidewall under the arch so the cushioning is a little stiffer. Also, the primeknit it more like a mesh – not as stretchy and giving but better containment. Personally, I like the ST best but I need a little extra medial support.

    1. It is, because they took out the cage. I also imagine the primeknit on this one is lighter because they have made it less dense to simulate a sock more accurately.

  2. Thanks for the performance review Duke!

    Based on both reviews,

    I’ll stick with my Ultra Boost ST 🙂

  3. These look super comfortable. I want to get into jogging for cardio and these Boost models definitely look like the way to go. As always, I appreciate the review Duke.

  4. Am I the only one who can’t stand having no support in these sock type shoes. I have the nmd r1’s and my feet literally have movement side to side, zero support to keep it in place. I walked in them for at least 4 hours and my feet started to feel funny. I’ve never had this problem in any of the nike air zooms that i own, where I can walk long distances literally for over 5 hours with no problems.

  5. I am undecided between these and the Pureboost X. The reviews on both are great. Do you know which is the better shoe?
