New Delhi: Today, Adidas Running has unveiled the Adidas Ultraboost 22. The latest addition to the iconic Ultraboost line-up provides runners with 4% more supreme energy return than the Ultraboost 21 for women. Designed with our oceans in mind, it includes a CONTINENTAL™ natural rubber outsole and an upper made with yarn containing 50% Parley Ocean Plastic.
The launch represents a key milestone in Adidas' long-term commitment to offering the best product to all women, through improvements and benefits that support the needs of its diverse community of women. The new Ultraboost 22 was informed by women-specific insights to provide runners with a shoe that is specifically comfortable tailored to their feet.
DESIGNED FOR THE FEMALE FOOT
Our all-women team of designers and product developers worked closely with the Adidas running community and testers to create the new silhouette, which marks the biggest update to the Ultraboost line-up yet. A shoe that has been at the forefront of performance running since its first iteration in 2015, the Ultraboost 22 delivers supreme energy return technology, combined with a refined design for ultimate comfort.
Tapping into women-specific insights and using an online anatomy database of 1.2 million foot scans, conducted and analysed by footwear and technology researchers Jura, Žabkar & Džerosk (2019), our design team identified key differences across instep height, heel anatomy and females’ gait cycle trends and re-engineered and refined the Ultraboost last to better reflect the female foot. The new last, born from the foundations of the signature S-curve UB21 last, was fine-tuned to create a narrower heel pocket, shallower forefoot profile and lower instep area, whilst the newly refined outsole is designed to help you say goodbye to overpronation.

Nora Wilimzig, Senior Product Manager, Adidas Running, said “We created the adidas Ultraboost 22, by taking a more holistic approach to the way we design our running shoes.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo, adidas athlete and two-time Olympic champion, said “The Ultraboost 22 represents an exciting step for adidas Running and shows the brand’s continued commitment to providing all runners with the best product in order to support them in achieving their personal goals. As an athlete, seeing brands innovate and push boundaries inspires me to do the same. It's great to know that I have the support I need every step of the way.
