When we asked 16 fitness-minded cool women about their favourite workout shoes, two of them recommended the Adidas UltraBoost trainers. The Ultraboosts (in a pleasing grey and violet colour scheme) are now practically half-off at ASOS (£86, down from £160), and available in a wide range of sizes.
Caitlin Carlson, the deputy editor at Equinox’s digital magazine Furthermore, says that while she was initially skeptical of Adidas’s UltraBoost trainers when they first came out, they “actually do feel like clouds on your feet, and I’ve never felt faster.” She’s since run three marathons — in Boston, Berlin, and New York City — in different versions of the UltraBoost, and used the trainers to train for other competitive runs. Carlson adds that these are “one of the most stylish workout-shoe options out there,” saying that she tries to keep one pair “just for running and another for the gym and for walking around.” Personal trainer Bari Lieberman is also a major fan: “They’re comfy, springy, and have been my go-to option for anything from just a few miles to half-marathons.”
