This month, Adidas relaunches and reveals new colorways to the latest addition of the iconic Ultraboost franchise. Initially launched in December 2021 in Mauve, the Ultraboost 22 is now available in a Flash Orange colorway.
Created by an all-women team, the adidas Ultraboost 22 provides runners with 4% more forefront energy return than the Ultraboost 21 for women. Tapping into women-specific insights and using an online anatomy database of 1.2 million foot scans, conducted and analyzed by footwear and technology researchers Jura, Zabkar, & Dzeroski (2019) The Ultraboost 22 is tailored to create a 360-degree fit improvement for the female foot.
With its re-engineered design to better fit the female form, providing female runners with the support and energy return to boost their performance, adidas continues its commitment to empowering women through sport. However, there is still a gap when it comes to women’s safety in running.
In addressing this, adidas Runners, adidas’ official running community, is launching a series of weekly runs that promote women’s safety by encouraging members to become active contributors and proud allies for the safety movement. Locally, adidas Runners Manila is set to launch weekend runs on March 20, March 27, and April 3 with distances ranging from 5K to 15K.
