I am huge trainer/sneaker fan, I love Stan Smith’s, NMD’s, Comme Des Garçons, Ultra Boost, Yeezy’s, the list goes on… I’ve wanted to grab myself a pair of Adidas with ‘Boost’ for a good while, but, I’ve always waited out, hoping I’d manage to snatch a pair of the latest Yeezy 350’s. Unfortunately, like most, I’ve taken an L every damn time (If anyone wants to hook me up, I’m a UK 8).
So, when I was doing a bit of shopping in St. Ives last month I could not resist when I spotted a pair of Uncaged Ultra Boost, in my size, in the window of one of my favourites stores – Number 8.
I picked up the boost in the “collegiate” colourway, at retail price (£130) and was super keen to see whether the boost sole lived up to its hype. I love the silhouette and design of the shoe, particularly the prime-knit upper, which hugs my ankles. I’ve been wearing them loads. And, yes, they are insanely comfy.
Ignoring the hype that surrounds the boost sole I would honestly say they’re the comfiest shoes I’ve worn. As well a the awesome aesthetic, they’re super light and you almost don’t feel like you’ve got shoes on! I hugely recommend the boost sole and can safely say it won’t be my last pair.
