Adidas Gives The Ultraboost Glow-In-The-Dark Overlays Ideal For Night Runs

When balancing training with a busy lifestyle, it can be tempting to squeeze in a run during the early hours of the morning or late in the evening after work. One unfortunate downside is that doing so comes with an added element of risk, whether that’s because of your own reduced visibility or that the road ahead is hard to see.

However, provided that you have the right gear for the job, it’s more than possible to run in the dark without putting yourself in danger. Adidas has just the shoe: a glow-in-the-dark version of its ever-popular Ultraboost 5.0 DNA. It’s been fitted with a set of luminescent overlays that cover the cage and heel — in addition to providing structured support, they give the shoe some added shine. In practice, this makes them perfect for heading out in low light conditions, because they’ll keep you easily seen and, as a result, safe. And when you consider that they feature Primeblue material made out of Parley Ocean Plastic, it just goes to show that you can train responsibly while also supporting the planet. You can pick them up now for $180 on the Adidas website.
