United Style: adidas ZX Boost shoes

Thursday 04 November 2021 14:00

There’s nothing quite like supporting your team, is there? The love and loyalty that we fans have for our club is something that can’t quite be replicated.

There’s also nothing quite like a pair of comfortable shoes, right? As a wise person once said, always invest in a comfortable bed and a comfortable pair of shoes, as you spend most of your time in either one. 

Luckily, adidas have the perfect solution that combines both of these loves. Step forward (pardon the pun), the adidas x United ZX Boost, which are available on United Direct here.

What may look like a regular sneaker silhouette at first glance is actually a combination of scientific methods and groundbreaking technology, all of which combine to provide one of the comfiest shoes around right now.
In what is an all-round great shoe, the first highlight is the midsole, which is constructed from Boost technology. First hitting the pavement back in 2013, Boost is the result of years of research from the adidas Innovation Team and German scientists BASF. 

Boost is essentially a large amount of Thermoplastic Polyurethane particles that are fused together with pockets of air in between, providing comfort, responsive cushioning, and energy return that won’t be replicated elsewhere.
The upper is constructed from a blend of synthetic material, with a mesh toe box allowing comfort and breathability for your feet. A TPU heel cup is on hand to provide stability and reduce negative space, meaning that your feet won’t be sliding around unnaturally. A lace closure ensures a snug, but comfortable fit. 

Of course, what makes this pair so special is the fact that there is a Manchester United club crest on the icy sole unit and in the sock liner too, so you can always step correctly. This slick pair also dons the same colour scheme as our third kit for this 2021/22 season, so they’re a perfect match to pair with your United jerseys, especially the third kit which is available here.
We love seeing how our amazing fans are styling their United gear and showing off their support, so remember to keep using #unitedstyle and tagging us with @weareunited so we can share our favourites!
