Silhouette Explored – Boost™
Boost™ was unveiled by Adidas in 2013 as part of their Energy Running Segment launch showcase. Boost™ was built to emphasise energy return (as part of the cushioning paradigm, the other 3 being weight, cushion and durability). It is constructed by world leading chemical production company, BASF. Boost™ is made from thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), the plastic is moulded into miniature capsules which store and release energy with movement or as and when the shoe hits the ground. The construction of Boost™, gives it a distinct look with the sole of Adidas silhouettes housing the silhouette looking like cloud moulded foam. The most popular use of Boost is in Adidas' YEEZY line and their UltraBoost series, which was introduced in 2015.
