German sportswear giant Adidas has unveiled its latest UltraBoost offering, the group's first laceless high-performance running shoe developed with a new sock-like fit and collar construction that allows the foot to move in harmony with the upper, as one single unit.

The UltraBoost Laceless has been developed using a new approach to Aramis motion capture technology, which helps to understand the precise detail of how an athlete's foot moves while running. The motion tracking technology enables a detailed analysis into the movement of the body, and allowed Adidas designers to integrate key support and functionality features to construct a minimalistic upper that contours the foot, leaving the wearer feeling unstrained.

Meanwhile, innovations and advances in Primeknit construction and yarn engineering, along with an energy-returning Boost sole, were also used.

"In removing laces, such a fundamental component of the silhouette, refinement of the remaining core elements was paramount," explains Stephan Schneider, senior product manager Adidas Running. "We reimagined the Primeknit architecture, making it more supportive and compressive to enable runners to feel released and empowered to achieve their full potential. What we have created is the most intuitive UltraBoost yet and a new chapter in the history of our family."

Primeknit, one of Adidas' most well-known innovations is central to the design of the UltraBoost Laceless, and has been through advanced testing and modification to ensure runners are free to move, but also supported and stable to achieve peak performance.
