The success of adidas’ Boost foam has rested on the protective ride and performance feel it provides. The new Pure Boost X is designed to address a common fit issue women experience, so it’s available only in women’s sizes. The stretchy knit upper is supported by no-sew overlays.

The innovation is in detaching the midfoot from the midsole and wrapping the arch so the shoe fits snugly. The rationale? A well-designed fit and support can reduce plantar fascia issues, but they also provide a smooth ride, thanks to the foot-hug- ging fit. The midsole is single-density Boost foam with its expected resilience, cushioning, and durability. The outersole is a thin, lightweight, grippy layer of Continental rubber—and it’s durable, too. We applaud this innovation of the Pure Boost X and weren’t surprised that it earned our award for Best Summer Shoe 2016.

Testers: “The fit is better than any shoe I’ve tried—[it] hugs the foot amazingly well. Fit well. Great cushion. I love this shoe!”
