You can tell its a Boost shoe from that geometric patterned foam (usually white) just above the outsole: https://www.adidas.com/us/terrex-agr...es/EE9570.html

Nike's React midsole (released in 2018) might be better, but I've only owned one pair so far. It's easier to find Adidas Boost trail runners on sale, because they've been on the market for 5 years.
I'm also going to be researching and looking to get a pair of these when on sale or something from the agravic line that has the boost tech. I noticed that the one you linked is the only one that has the description about the toe cap and welded seams (see link I highlighted description here:

But all of the agravic gore tex line (cheaper ones) look the same to me there. Even on what appears to be the same shoe in black doesn't have that description (is also cheaper). You think it's likely just an omission or is the 170 shoe really the only one with really good toe cap?

Cheers
