World champion Nikki Adler reviews the adidas SpeedEx 16.1 BOOST

The multi-belt title holder, 30, is one of a number of top fighters using the shoes, which have the latest running technology of BOOST and subtle red flashes to make this shoe made a statement.

adidas state that this shoe was created to revolutionize the boxing training environment. Designed to replicate the cushioning of a competitive ring, the introduction of BOOST technology to the traditional boxing shoe design enables faster footwork and endless energy, allowing athletes to work out longer and train harder.

The SpeedEx 16.1 BOOST has undergone a rigorous testing program at local demo spaces in Frankfurt. Athletes across amateur and professional boxing have been invited to put the shoe through its paces.

adidas Boxing Senior Product Manager Jan Wildner said: ”Working alongside the German Boxing National Team and our portfolio of professional and amateur boxers we have gained informed and precise athlete feedback around the product’s performance.

“Understanding that 80% of a boxer’s fight preparation is in the gym with only 20% based in the ring, it was key to enhance our footwear to allow our boxers to train harder for longer at the highest speed levels.”

A number of top adidas boxers, including Chris Algeri, Chris Colbert and Heather Hardy are training in the Speedex 16.1 BOOST as we speak and Adler is the first to agree to review for adidas and WBN.

“These shoes are the best choice for training camp,” emphasized Adler.

“They come with great comfort, are ultra-light and good for the quickness I need in the ring.

“Using them is a great training experience and for fighters with great ambitions they absolutely recommendable,” she added.
