This is my 6th or 7th pair of Ultraboost. Once I bought my first pair years ago when they first dropped, I was completely hooked. They are easily the most comfortable athletic shoes on earth! And even my first pair are still holding up perfectly.
Anyone who is a Sneaker Junkie, you should own at least a couple pairs of these.
Truly one of the very few shoes I can wear all day without fatiguing my feet.
Youtube the video about the technology of this shoe.
Have u ever tried the new balance 990s v4 and v5. Super comfy and firm ride. Like Bmw of shoes. so sporty to run and workout with. Very good looking and comfortable for casual wear!

I wouldn't call Ultraboost athletic at all. It's too soft, providing undetermined response: you can literally rock on it. Although in my winter frost boots there's a thinner layer, it felt better. To me, it looks like shit too. (At least they started to paint it: when I bought they claimed a paint would take away all the "magic". Has it? ) No offense, just a different opinion. Of course I can't (nor intend to) spoil the huge adidas party here.

I'll be honest here the ultraboost was my most comfortable shoe up until I picked up some pureboosts to beat on. I'm on my feet all day at work and they're the only shoe I own that doesn't leave my feet aching at the end of the day. They're even more comfortable when coupled with an ultraboost insole lol

I like the look of my Ultraboost that I currently have but don't think they are the most comfortable tennis shoe. I bought my first pair on sale but wouldn't spend the money to buy again.

I was about a bottle of champagne in when I commented last night & got excited about the color lol. The ones I just bought are the same exact color and styling but not ultraboost.

I heard Ultraboosts were going to be the official shoe of the Trump 2020 campaign.

Has anyone gone crazy and had a custom set of sneakers made by UnDandy or similar?

Just looked, the options are pretty minimal as well.

You should go check out Undandy to see what I mean by being able to customize.

Heck, it looks like Van's offers more custom options than the Nike's do.

Yes. I see what you mean. I've also done some custom Adidas.

Definitely not a whole "created shoe", more of personalized colors, accents, laces. Which for me is still nice.

I need to do that because I don't like having a run of the mill shoe.

So the other day I get an email from VANS saying my shipment has been processed and will be delivered next week. That's great but the only thing is I did not buy anything recently. As you can imagine I was a bit confused, I thought maybe someone had sent me something I did not know about. So the day came and sure enough a package arrived from VANS. With crazy anticipation I opened the box and found this.....





I have been a member of the "Family" for a while now but never got anything like this, mad cool. They are their top of the line UltraCush. I don't do FO, Insta, or anything like that so I thought I would post it up here. Mad Props to VANS!!!

Vans......so strange how certain things become popular. The company has been around since '66 and suddenly now they are the cool shoe to wear. I started wearing Vans when I was 12, because I skated (skateboarding that is). Used to get made fun of for wearing them because they weren't Nike Air. It's funny how out of nowhere suddenly they are popular. It's like North Face jackets a few years ago.

If I see a person wearing Vans these days, the first thing that crosses my mind when I walk past is "poser." Yes it's just a shoe, but I find it hilarious to see people my age wearing them because they see young people wear them and want to be cool too.....which ultimately makes them not cool. Now, if I see anyone wearing them, of any age, and the shoes show signs of actually being skated in; not only do you earn respect, I may even stop and chat with you. If you own Vans and they are pristine, my question is how many North Face jackets do you own? It's like showing up on a job site with tools that show no signs of wear. You may get respect from people who like clean tools, but from the people that know what's going on; you get no love.

That is a cool gift from the company though.

p.s. not passing judgement on your kicks, just my $.02 which is worth less than $.02.

This reads like a post on social media and it makes me sad that people care about such trivial BS.

BP is social media. Hate that it makes you sad and that's me, Mr. Trivial BS. You must own some Vans and some North Face jackets.
