Reebok’s Pump technology was one of the most sought after advancements in sneaker design throughout the 80s and redefined customizable cushioning systems in basketball models. It was such a significant change of pace that other brands tried to copy the tech,but after cooperated with Pump and used Puma technology to their running category later down the road with such classics as the Reebok Instapump Fury holding down the 90s. That is different and now it has been popularity. it is would become a lifestyle staple decades later.
However the adidas ultra boost have been always as a popurity in the sneaker world, because of the adidas tech and cushioning system always been an model all of brands. For the ultra boost ,there’s been 2.0 variants, 3.0s and back again to give you ample opportunity to cop what could be the cleanest colorway in your sneaker rotation and now you have one more to potentially add to your list with this updated Ultra Boost Uncaged.
We will check the difference between these shoes.
For the boxes , adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged is simply, but this one is for the CNY , so the box will be more special.
Reebok Pump ‘s box , it is more simply.
For the adidas Ultra Boost ,it is features that signature white on white Primeknit woven upper, but this time the ankle collar gets a little rise for a more mid-top feel. It isn’t quite the construction we saw on Ronnie Fieg’s Aspen Collaboration.
We first saw this new model previewed with the Vetements Reebok Pump Supreme Engine.While the fashion brand definitely brought some notoriety to the design with their tongue-in-cheek Left and Right labels on each pair, today we get detailed shots of the modernized take on Pump.
For the material :
Ultra Boost Uncaged used the Primeknit stretch mesh, and closed stretch mesh, which more comfortable. the Primeknit upper construction and a high volume Boost midsole. But throwing around the ‘greatest’ hyperbole isn’t exactly the smartest move; there is no running shoe in the world which is a universal fit for all.
The sock design can help more lockdown of the shoes.Also with the beautiful color of lace system.The white heel cage also dons contrasting metallic silver Ultra Boost branding while that Continental rubber outsole unit returns in a matching off-white.
But for the Reebok Pump , It is used the engineered mesh upper is retained as well as the medial Pump releases, and the shoe sits atop a tonal threaded rubber sole.The material will be more stiff than the adidas ultra boost .
Reebok is able to use a considerable amount of foam underneath the foot without bogging you down. In doing so, it made the heel relatively tall，it’s about average thickness for a running shoe in general, but far thicker than what you’d typically find in a racer，and the drop from heel to forefoot is quite high, which can give you a sense of speed and propulsion。
The Reebok Pump just have been not the lace system , but the zig-zag air bladder wraps around the midfoot to the heel, so you can not adjust the lace system randomly.
For the traction :
Reebok Pump used Pump technology to their running category later down the road with such classics as the Reebok Instapump Fury holding down the 90s , the rubber traction will be stiff more the boost cushioning .
The pump technology is lighter, more flexible, and more impact-resistant than other plastics, and when it’s blown into a foam, those properties remain, meaning the material compresses more and rebounds with more force than typical midsole foams.
For the adidas boost,the white heel cage also dons contrasting metallic silver Ultra Boost branding while that Continental rubber outsole unit returns in a matching off-white. Plastic midfoot cage and heel, and a prodigious chunk of exposed midsole hewn out of bouncy Boost foam. Even the plastic ‘Torsion’ shank dams up on the Ultra Boost’s medial heel the same way the EB-2 does.
There are exposed areas on the outsole and strobel, so the Boost foam glows like a Christmas paper lamp under bright lights.
Midfoot cage attaches to the molded heel clip with an inwards flare. This plastic counter also cups under the heel edges. Leaving the Achilles area free was smart design thinking.
Around the top edge of the midsole, giving you a little extra structure and keeping your foot comfortable
Unique ventilated perforations can be found throughout and a minimalist Pump upper complete with a zig-zagging pocket to hold the cushioned dose of air is sure to turn heads.
Also the Pump logo as the heel part.
Overall, The Reebok Pump’s foam cushions your stride, and the flexibility of the forefoot. All this is taken into account in our reviews of each shoe.But the ultra boost also have a nice pweformance , but for me , I like the Adidas boost well. I like boost ‘s an upper fit which feels snug yet comfortable, and transition quality which feels great for a shoe this cushioned.
