When you start collecting a piece of clothing in multiple colors, that's when you know it's a winner. That seems to have happened to Carrie Underwood, who's been sharing photos of herself wearing pairs of Adidas Ultraboost 20 Running Shoes (Buy It, $79–351, on social media for years.

Most recently, Underwood opted for the sneaker during a workout event with BodyArmor in Austin, Texas. She paired a bright coral tank top and shorts with the Adidas By Stella McCartney Ultraboost 20 Graphic Running Shoe (Buy It, $230,, a version of the shoe with a zebra print sole.

You'll spot another iteration of the shoe in a post from the Instagram account of Underwood's fit52 workout app from last year. In the photo, Underwood is wearing a pair of pink Adidas Ultraboost 20 Running Shoes with a coordinating tank top. The post was an invitation to sign up for the app, which was created by Underwood and her personal trainer Eve Overland with the intention to help people design a realistic workout routine based on their fitness level and how often they can (or want to) squeeze in a sweat session. But if you're someone who thinks cute workout clothes are the ultimate motivator, you might be more inclined to spend your money copying Underwood's workout look in the pic. (Underwood herself has that philosophy.)

A long scroll through Underwood's personal Instagram reveals that that wasn't the first time she's sported Adidas Ultraboost 20 Running Shoes. She also has an all-black pair and a white pair, which have both received plenty of airtime.

Before she took to the Ultraboost 20, she loved wearing the Adidas Ultraboost, an earlier shoe from the line. "I bought them on Amazon because I buy everything on Amazon," she previously told Shape. "I have knee problems, and I've been looking for shoes for years that don't make my knees hurt. I have one knee in particular that just doesn't cooperate, and I feel like it matters so much how you walk and what your stride is like and what workout you're doing — but for my knees, these are the most comfortable shoes." (

Underwood isn't the only celebrity who's a fan of Adidas Ultraboost 20 Running Shoes. Lady Gaga wore a blush-colored pair during a rock-climbing expedition, and Rita Ora wore the solid black pair that Underwood owns.

It's not hard to guess why the sneakers have become a favorite. They feature Adidas' extra-responsive Boost cushioning, which is designed to help propel runners forward. The running shoes are also made with a foot-hugging knit fabric for a flexible but supportive fit. And, of course, there's something to be said for the fact that they're more pleasing to the eye than a lot of running shoes. (
