There was no February fitness lapse for our adidas team last week as we launched the UltraBOOST X trainer, made specifically for the female foot, at the new adidas Women’s studio on Brick Lane.
Running (literally) not one but three events across the day, the team were active from dawn until dusk.
Starting with an 7am media launch session, journalists got the chance to hear about the unique design of the new shoe from Becky Gough on the adidas concept to consumer team.
What is the point of hearing about the UltraBOOST X, however, if you can’t then try it?
Kitting them all out in the latest shoe we gave everyone a morning to remember courtesy of a warm-up session with British Olympic bronze medallist Desiree Henry, followed by a unique adidas Runner’s session around the Brick Lane area. 13 brave members of the media braced the early start including Fabulous, Women’s Health, Evening Standard and The Sun.
The pace didn’t slow down into the afternoon as double Olympic medallist, Jess Ennis-Hill, popped in to chat about the shoe and her own training regime post retirement with Women’s Health and the Evening Standard.
The day ended with a social media launch event from 6pm, with 16 of the most influential female fitness bloggers in attendance to hear more on the shoe, meet Jess Ennis-Hill, partake in an incredible night-time run and experience a workout at the studio.
So far the launch has led to over 120 posts on social media from the likes of Twice the Health, Carly Rowena, Lottie Murphy and Emilie Lovaine and traditional media coverage including this video piece on the Evening Standard online.

Tonight’s run club with @adidasuk for the launch of the new #ultraBOOSTX was just incredible! I’ve never ran twice in one day, or ran as far as I managed in a single day, so I’m so proud! The shoes give me the serious confidence and support I needed for tonight’s session, and it was just so incredible to be running round the streets of London surrounded by such an incredible team of girls including @jessicaennishill and all my other favourite sisters! ????????????
????????♀️Greater Every Run ???? Let me introduce you to the Ultra Boost X ❤️???? Tonight @adidasuk launched the dream combination, all the things I love about the Ultra Boost with the specialist women’s running technology first seen in the Pure Boost X. A pesky cough/cold saw me having to stand on the sidelines whilst a run was lead around Shoreditch but it meant I got to spend more time in the fabulous Adidas Studio. Fingers crossed I’m better for my long run on Saturday and these beauties are coming with me. Just walking in them I know they are going to be a dream to run in. #GreaterEveryRun #UltraBoostX
