adidas’ Boost technology has been one of the best technological advancements in running silhouettes over the past year and a half. The cushion system not only provides one of the most stable, comfortable rides out there, but the bubbly, styrofoam esque pattern is definitely a head-turner in the aesthetic department too. So far, the only knock against Boost is the fact that adidas hadn’t found a way to add a colorful twist to it, given that the material is made up of near microscopic air pockets and colors would appear to crack. That is, until now. The latest adidas NMD, a pair that we previewed yesterday with Japanese branding throughout, features black Boost – marking the first time the tech has departed from the all white theme. It’s a pretty big update given that fans have been clamoring for an updated color on the tech for quite some time. Could this lead to updated colors on the Yeezy Boost Series? As for the rest of this release, a unique katana version of “3-Stripe Boost” lands on the midsole and heel tab, marking the only white accents throughout. Check out more photos below and be on the look out for this new NMD release to hit retailers in the near future.
