adidas nmd soldes One way to keep attention on Boost is improving it. “We are not stopping with Boost. We are innovating within Boost, as we showed with the launch of Boost Light last year,” Adidas’s Am says. But like the original Boost, Boost Light—which is exactly what it sounds like—is currently only use for its top-line marathon shoes. In other parts of Adidas’s business, Boost also gives Adidas an advantage when it comes to actually making shoes faster than the competition, particularly at its new Atlanta “Speedfactory.” But making Boost lighter and faster isn’t the game-changer Adidas will eventually need to keep making up ground. For now, the shoes aren’t ready to be mass-produced for a number of reasons. For one, they demand some serious technology that involves liquid plastic.

But most of all, the Futurecraft 4D sneaker is significantly heavier than a pair of Ultra Boost sneakers, and its soles are stiffer and less bouncy than Boost. In other words, they don’t provide much in the way of an improvement to the person actually wearing them. But the answer might be right under their Adidas’s nose: Boost may not even be close to reaching its potential. John Kernan estimates Boost-adorned sneakers currently make up less than 25 percent of Adidas’s.

adidas original homme pas cher Yeezy Boosts are obviously the most hyped of the Boost line-up, but data shows all Boost sneakers generate buzz on the aftermarket. According to StockX, which acts as a middleman between buyers and sellers of rarified sneakers, Adidas sneakers with Boost make up 97 percent of all Adidas shoes sold on its site. Adidas owns just about 12 percent of the U.S. athletic footwear market—but it currently has 51 percent of the resale market on StockX. Hype is good for a brand's perception in the marketplace, but Adidas doesn't make any money when some reseller turns a 500 percent profit on a pair of Yeezys. The fact remains that at the primary retail level, Nike’s market share is still four times that of Adidas.

adidas original femme pas cher Adidas might be on the right track thanks to Boost, but it’s going to need to find what’s next if it wants to keep the Sneaker Wars interesting. But there’s a mighty good chance that whatever’s next involves Boost. but he predicts that number will only grow. and more if you count Jordan Brand as part of the Swoosh’s portfolio. The Futurecraft 4D shoes are objectively gorgeous. But in addition, Carbon’s technology, called Digital Light Synthesis, is, according to Adidas, “a breakthrough process… that uses digital light projection, oxygen permeable optics, and programmable liquid resins to generate high performance, durable polymeric products.”
