The catalyst for change for runners, the latest edition of the pioneering adidas' Ultraboost 21 features even more energy return than its predecessor. Each pair is built with a Linear Energy Push which provides a 15% increase in forefoot bending stiffness for added responsiveness.

The Primeknit+ upper offers a more precise knit; 50% of the upper is textile, and 75% of that is made from Primeblue, a recycled material containing at least 50% Parley Ocean Plastic. Available in several colorways, they're finished with a Stretchweb outsole made using Continental rubber.

Like a track-only version of a high-end sports car, the Awake Ravik S takes what's great about the original and turns it up a notch. Still powered by the powerful Awake Direct Drive system, its carbon fiber hull has been completely redesigned with agility in mind.

Other conditioners can hydrate and strengthen hair but not many of them can do it without any parabens, fragrances, or colorants.
