A fresh new pair of the ever-popular Adidas Ultra Boosts has just surfaced online, and these ones seem to be garnering more buzz than the average Ultra Boost model. The reason for the extra hype? These ones were designed by New York style icon Ronnie Fieg, the owner of KITH.
These were first spotted at Fieg’s Kithland fashion show which went down in September, though recent close-ups providing a more in-depth look were just posted online a few days ago by the Instagram account @sneakerprophet_.
This collaboration stands out from other Ultra Boosts due to a few unique features. First, and most notably, is the upper. This pair sports an uncaged mid-top design with a unique maroon-dominated, multi color Prime-knit and braided laces. The other standout feature of the upper is the transparent three stripes logo; it provides for that classic Adidas branding, while at the same time allowing the beautiful Prime-knit to be the main focus of this pair. The upper is accompanied by contrasting white accents making up the majority of the boost midsole, heel cup, and tongue tabs.
Many of Fieg's other designs have gone on to become highly sought-after by collectors, and adding one of people’s favorite sneaker silhouettes to that equation should make this one of his more highly anticipated drops.
First impressions online have been mixed so far. Some people are calling these one of the best Ultra Boosts yet, while others aren't fond of the flashy color-way (some people have likened the red/green Prime-knit on these to a Christmas sweater) and the mid-top, sock-like construction.
The bad news is that, while people are definitely anticipating these dropping, no date has been set for the release as of right now. Keep it locked to Hypefresh though, as we’ll be sure to update you as more information about this pair becomes available.
