ADI­DAS ULTRABOOST LACELESS

220 Triathlon Magazine - - Kit Zone -

£159.95 Fresh out of the box, these fu­tur­is­tic rose pink booties (also avail­able in black) looked more some­thing de­signed to keep the blog­gerati happy than for se­ri­ous run­ning. But there is one big ben­e­fit for triathletes – namely the lack of laces – which means you can very quickly slip these on in T1 and go. They’re also re­ally plush and com­fort­able, with the Primeknit up­per snugly wrap­ping around the foot to keep it in place yet leav­ing lots of room for toes to move. We hap­pily wore these with­out socks, too. Tech­nol­ogy-wise you get the same grippy Con­ti­nen­tal out­sole and Boost cush­ion­ing as found in the Adizero Adios 3 that scored 85% in is­sue 348’s men’s race shoe test. The up­per seemed a lit­tle del­i­cate though and they felt less sure-footed than oth­ers from Adi­das. adi­das.co.uk
