Last week I shared with you my athleisure staples wish list which included a few sneakers I was coveting for my birthday. I think I’ve narrowed my choice down to my ever favorite Adidas Ultraboosts although I’m still coveting those leopard print sneakers. too. In that post, I showed you the Adidas x Parley which is very similar to these ones here. The Parley are a higher price point though and I think the colors are almost the same. The parley has a lot of contrasting white woven in the sock while these have pink contrasting the blue. Both are equally pretty and eye-catching. I love the Parley collaboration line from Adidas and I have this pair from last year but this year I opted for the regular Ultraboosts.
I take a size 9 in most of my shoes and it’s no different for Adidas Ultraboosts. I was a bit hesitant on these at first because my Ultraboost Parley’s from last year are a sock version which I find really flattering on the ankle and extremely comfortable. I was worried that these ones would come up higher on the ankle but actually, Adidas made this just as flattering and low profile as the sock version. I really love the scoop at the ankle. My Ultraboosts are the most comfortable sneaker I’ve ever worn, and the reason is of that odd nubbly sole. The soles have a really cool thermoplastic technology that you can read about here, but basically, it’s extremely cushy and shock absorbing. I also find the structureless sock design very comfortable. You don’t want shock absorbing or cushy for something like weight lifting, but for running or studio workouts these are perfect.
