Adidas Solar Boost
The Solar Boost 19 encompasses design inspired by NASA technology, an upper that uses recycled Parley plastic and Adidas’s revolutionary BOOST cushioning.
The unique cell structure of BOOST allows each capsule to store energy and return it efficiently to create an energetic feeling underfoot. A study by the University of Calgary showed that full-length BOOST cushioning improved running economy by 1.1% on average compared to an EVA midsole. Solar propulsion rails are positioned along the side to enhance support for when feet tire.
Recycled Parley plastic is used to make a tailored fibre placement upper. Inspired by NASA technology, this mesh upper has stitched-in areas of reinforcement for precisely calibrated support. This increases comfort and reduces the likelihood of irritation. The design around the ankle helps to reduce Achilles tendon stress while maintaining support.
Runners looking for ultimate protection and high levels of energy return should look to the Solar Boost 19.
