Is Boost technology all it's cracked up to be?

Is Boost technology all it's cracked up to be?

in 2013 adidas have been tweaking the technology through iterations like the Pure Boost and Ultra Boost , although the basic makeup remains the same after all these years. The Boost sole uses a material called thermoplastic polyurethane (or TPU) to form its bundle tightly packed sole nuggets. Just like the more traditional midsole material, EVA, TPU compresses under pressure for shock absorption – what’s unique about the adidas tech is the ability to instantly bounce back to its original shape. By moulding together lots of small capsules, they are allowed to ping back into shape quicker and easier than one big slab of sole could. The frisky foam is able to retain these properties despite temperature variation, being almost impervious to the elements, where EVA has been observed to stiffen in the cold.
