WE LIKED:

Incredible design

The Ultraboost 21 is arguably the best looking performance running shoe out there.

2

WE LIKED:

Well built and durable

Both the bootie-constructed upper and the crystal rubber outsole are very sturdy and will definitely stand the test of time.

3

WE LIKED:

It's heavy

The Ultraboost 21’s hefty weight severely limits its use to only easy and recovery runs.

WE DISLIKED:

Loose heel lockdown

The problem with bootie constructions is that it makes it impossible to implement double last row eyelets so heel lock lacing can’t be done.

2

WE DISLIKED:

Expensive for what you get

At $180 the Ultraboost 21 does not offer enough to be competitive with other premium running shoes.
