Adidas' Ultra Boost is one of the best sneakers on the market.

Since Kanye West's performed in an entirely white pair of the sneakers at the Billboard Music Awards back in 2015, the Ultra Boost has blurred the line between fashion and performance sneaker more than few others. It's understated silhouette, simple colorways and woven Primeknit upper makes it the most stylish performance running sneaker made in recent memory (especially when worn with track pants). Most importantly, of the dozens of pairs of shoes I've worn in the past couple years, the Ultra Boost is decidedly the most comfortable. The full length Boost foam-lined sole kinda looks like you're walking on styrofoam. It feels like you're walking on memory foam.

But the original low top iteration of the Authentic adidas Yeezy 950 Boot Pirate Black retails at a hefty $180, in the upper price echelons of performance running shoes and certainly closer to luxury sneaker pricing than casual. Now, how would you feel if you added on an ankle sock and $40 to the price tag?

Well, Adidas did just that with the Cheap Reebok Kamikaze II Mid "USA" White Navy Red, released back in September of this year. Billed as a fall and winter weather-variant of the Ultra Boost, the ATR sports an ankle-height sock for increased stability and splash protection, plus a deeper-grooved rubber outsole for better traction while running in wet weather. The original's plastic lace cage is replaced with Primeknit fabric, plus a smaller box that sits atop the shoe. Finally, the ATR comes in darker colorways Cheap Sale Jordan Melo M13 Black Metallic Gold Anthracite 881562-004,Authentic adidas Yeezy 950 Boot Turtle DoveCheapest Nike Air Max 2016 Black Black Grey, as to not show winter muck after a damp run. Adidas sent me a pair to review, so I took them not only to the damp streets of Portland, but to the streets of New York.

The original Ultra Boost is an extremely popular fashion sneaker, and new colorways are regularly sold out online and in store (check Portland's Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 High Pinnacle Red for rare pairs!). The ATR keeps the original's subdued aesthetics, but the midtop construction adds a new design element which I think makes the sneaker well-suited for styling with jeans as well as athleticwear Discount Cheap Nike KD 6 Navy Red White 647781 801,Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 High Midnight NavyDiscount Cheap Nike KD 6 RUGRATS Laser Purple Team Orange-Sport Turquoise,.

As for the on-foot feel, the ATR is comfortable, but not quite as comfortable as the original Ultra Boost. Though the ATR's tougher sole provides better traction than the original it leads to an on-foot feeling that isn't quite as heavenly.

Further, the shoe feels slightly tighter-fitting and more socklike than the original. The ankle sock doesn't overheat the foot, but when tied tight, the tops of my feet develop a pinchy feeling after a few hours that doesn't Discount Nike Zoom Hyperrev BHM,Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 High Highlight ReelFor Sale Cheap Nike KD 7 Bright Mango Space Blue Light Magnet Grey 653996-840, when left untied (the laces don't reach the ground) or tied loosely.

If you plan on doing this a bunch, the ATR is an excellent option. (Adidas)

As far as long-term wear goes, I took my ATRs to the streets of New York on a recent trip to test them out. They held up nicely during what I'd consider an everyday amount of activity (~2-3 miles of walking broken up with extended sitting breaks), my feet not getting particularly sore despite a long stroll through Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 High Deep Royal Blue Metallic Gold Coin White 332550-406. But on two particularly grueling days, the first, an hours-long punk show on wood and concrete floors, and the second, For Sale Cheap Nike KD 7 CNVS University Red Black White,Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 Low BordeauxGenuine Air Jordan 9 Cool Grey,, my dogs were certainly barkin' when I returned home. Though I don't consider those days representative of normal use, the ATR, despite above-average comfort, is not a miracle worker.

Now, what about actually running in my running shoes? I'm not a hardcore or regular runner: My cardiovascular health is slightly above average at best, but I can put away 5 kilometers without trouble, and I did just that on the treadmill and on Portland's waterfront.

On the treadmill, the ATR provided a solid, comfortable ride. Perhaps it is because running on a treadmill is excruciatingly boring, but I found myself paying more attention to my body during this run, and I noted that the ankle sock kept my feet feeling more secured than with my normal low top running shoe Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 High White Gold Silver.

However, the ATR really shined when running outside on a blustery November evening. Genuine Air Jordan Future Glow Infrared Black Red,Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 High Vivid PinkGenuine Cheap Nike KD 5 Elite Hyper Blue Volt-Blackened Blue 585386-400,, partially down the Eastbank Esplanade and back on a damp day. It wasn't raining, but it had rained plenty earlier, and the path was slick and covered with fallen leaves.

And I just completely disappeared into my run Legit Cheap Nike KD 8 N7,Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 Mid Navy Blue WhiteLegit Original Air Jordan 11Lab4 University Red,. Maybe it was because the Old Town sign was extra-glittery that evening, but, Legit Original Air Jordan 5 Black Fire Red,Authentic Cheap Jordan 1 Mid Purple GrapeNewest Cheap Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot KPU Black Red White, as one wants when on a fairly intense run, I barely noticed the shoes on my feet as I jogged along the Willamette.Newest Cheap Nike PG 1 White Gum,Authentic Lebron James 11 Aloha Custom 616175 117Official Nike Hyperdunk 2012 Low White Green 554671-100, I had no issues with tightness, and the traction was excellent along wet concrete and the ostensibly slick floating metal bridge of the Esplanade. The only thing I really noticed was a slight bounce between my foot and the sole as I ran.

Now, is all of this worth the $220 price tag?

Yet, if you aren't committed to winter running, $220 is a high price to pay for a sneaker that mostly just looks cool.

Then again, I will be taking my next few runs to the streets in my ATRs as long as it isn't raining sideways.
