adidas Consortium x Concepts: Energy Boost releasing Sat 28th of July

adidas x Concepts

– The Boston-based, internationally-renowned sneaker emporium Concepts

presents its take on the first adidas model to have featured BOOST technology,

the Energy Boost

– This irreverent new interpretation alludes to both classic sporting colorways and

the infamous Chinatown massage parlors of Concepts’ hometown

adidas Energy Boost was the first model to feature BOOST technology. With BOOST’s

innovative use of micro-EVA cells to absorb and recycle impact, it has been at the forefront of a

revolution in adidas’ range of running shoes for half a decade now. The TechFit uppers mirror

the pioneering technology in the sole, offering precision-engineered support and flexibility in

equal measure.

A fitting celebration of the Energy Boost, a shoe designed with long-distance runners in mind,

comes from Boston’s Concepts. Just as their hometown marathon is revered by runners around

the globe, so too is the Concepts store among sneaker-heads from all over the world. At first

glance, their take on the Energy Boost draws on the sporting heritage of adidas’ iconic tennis

shoes, the brilliant white base and green accenting calling to mind the famous adidas Stan Smith

model in its original colorway. The athletics club mood is further enhanced by the use of a

towelling-effect Primeknit. As with many of Concepts’ shoe collaborations however, the shoe is

also a tribute to their own local, New England heritage. For this Energy Boost, that means subtle

nods to the infamous massage parlours found in Boston’s Chinatown – places that one might also

associate with towelling. The sporting green accents, most noticeable on the three stripes and

marbled outsole, are rendered in an opulent jade tone often found decorating the parlors. It is a

further blurring between pristine sports performance and gritty urban experience that results in a

deceptively intriguing lifestyle version of the Energy Boost.
