Walking on clouds, the Adidas Ultra Boost

I recently picked up the Adidas Ultra Boost in Core Black and I have to say they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I absolutely love them, they are atheistically incredible the materials they have used feel premium. The best way to put it is that they feel sturdy when you hold them in your hand it all feels very well put together.

To start with they come nicely packaged in the standard Adidas Ultra Boost box which is a nice vibrant box. It has a range of colours and a funky design which is a nice touch. Also the paper used inside the box has Boost branding all over it which again its the small things that make the product feel special.

Now for the actual shoe itself they consist of a Primeknit upper which is the Adidas alternative to Nikes Flyknit. It is such a soft material that really just shapes itself around your foot which really adds to the comfort factor. But this also makes the shoe fit rather snug so for me personally since I have a wide foot I had to size up on these. I have also heard that if you put a shoe trees in them you run the risk of ripping the Primeknit.IMG_4344.JPGThe sole consists of boost which is really what sold the shoe to me apart for the fact it looks great, having boost makes them unbelievably comfortable. What boost does is it gives energy return, the sole is made entirely of energy pellets which is why it looks like polystyrene. Do not quote me on this but I believe there are over 3000 pellets in them which so far is the most in any Adidas shoe. There is also a stretch web on the out sole which gives them that extra durability and Torsion technology for that added support.IMG_4346 - Copy.JPGIMG_4369.JPG

The Ultra Boosts also feature a plastic cage on the side which gives them the three stripes and is actually where the laces are threaded. The laces are threaded though the cage so that the shoe can be one whole piece with no breaks essentially making it a sock.IMG_4346

The Ultra Boosts also features a few nice additions for example metal lace tips, a 3m reflective Adidas tag on the tongue and hits of silver on the side of the shoe and on the inside.

Overall this is a really great shoe that I would recommend to anyone, you get a amazingly practical shoe. Along side a very stylish shoe that has been in the public eye a lot recently thanks to Kanye West. The quality is there, the comfort is there and the style is there what is not to love.IMG_4362.JPG

New year, new blog

Hello and welcome, I am currently a second year journalism student at the University of Huddersfield. I thought with this new year it was time to broaden my horizons and give this whole blogging thing a go.

This blog will essentially consist of anything and everything as I will be writing about any topics that interest or excite me. It will primarily be an outlet  for me to spew my thoughts and a chance for me to share my opinions.

A little bit about myself, my interests range from fashion to gaming to music and all the way in between. So really there is no structure for this blog it is most likely going to be a load of random gibberish. Hopefully you will find some pleasure in reading it and you will stick around.
