The stick rubber compound combined with the stretchweb tread pattern and slightly protruding nubs will make sure that you get a phenomenal amount of traction on almost any surface. You should not have to worry about your feet slipping out from underneath you while you are out and about as your shoes will be able to hold quite the grip. You might not want to take these sneakers for a trek up a mountain or through a wooded trail, but they are going to be able to hold their own while running or walking on roads, dirt paths, or other such terrains.
The Boost midsole is also going to give you an impressively responsive ride which runners adore. When you are running and your feet hit the ground your foot will sink into the sole of your shoe. The foam midsole is going to try to quickly and efficiently bounce back into its original shape, propelling you forward into your next step. This is going to help you save a little bit of energy with each step you take that can then be used to help you run just a little bit faster and longer. You will love the spring in your step you will get while walking around in these sneakers.
The Adidas Ultraboost 19 shoes also feature an insole that gives you a little extra comfort on top of the already comfortable midsole. It has a smooth surface to give you a pleasant underfoot experience. This insole is removable so if it does not work for you or you need a little extra support then you can always take it out and replace it with one that best fits your specific needs.
The breathable uppers are great because it ensures that you to get a decent amount of air flow into the foot chamber helping to keep you cool and dry, especially if you are out on a warm day or heading out for a long run. Since the air can flow freely into your shoes you will be able to stay nice and cool but that also means that any sweat from your feet will be able to evaporate quickly and efficiently and escape your shoes with ease, giving your feet a drier and healthier feel.
In addition to the underfoot cushioning, you are also going to get a roomy toe box to give you some wiggle room without sacrificing support and stability. The upper features a seamless construction with a textile liner helps keep your feet from rubbing uncomfortably against the shoes which can cause irritation and nasty blisters.
One thing that customers did not like, however, is the fact that the walls of the shoes did not seem to hug their feet properly which can cause a little bit of wobbling inside of the shoes. This is not something that all customers experienced but it is worth keeping in mind when considering these sneakers.
As for arch support, they offer a moderate amount of support. If you have rather high arches there might not be enough for you and you may want to consider a replacement insole for added support.
The outsole of the sneakers features slightly protruding notes along the bottom that are connected by grooves. Not only will this give you better traction but it will also encourage a high amount of flexibility while you are on the go.
