adidas Launch the UltraBOOST 20 in Partnership with ISS U.S. National Lab

After plenty of teasers, adidas have officially announced the UltraBOOST 20, designed in partnership with the International Space Station’s U.S. National Laboratory. The game-changing runner has received a host of out-of-this-world upgrades – literally – with the ISS facilitating testing of the BOOST moulding process in space.

Up top, the Primeknit has been refined with a data-driven technology dubbed Tailored Fiber Placement (TFP), creating a more precise knit for optimal fit. The purple-gradient BOOST midsole is spruced up with Torsion spring and Stretchweb tech on the Continental rubber outsole, improving energy transfer on past UB models. Aesthetically, the midfoot cage gets a fresh new texture, while the tongues feature an ISS U.S. National Laboratory space patch.

The adidas UltraBOOST 20 will release in three colourways on December 6 at adidas and select retailers.
