  • adidas Ultra Boost Core Black 3.0

    First look

    Yet another iteration of the Ultra Boost 3.0 has been released, this time featuring a leather cage, which adds a premium touch to one of adidas' most popular silhouettes to date.

    Another change that pops out is the newly designed heel cage, which has the words Ultra Boost debossed into the dimple-patterned cage.

    The shoe is covered in black, which brings us back to the 1st version of the Core Black Ultra Boosts that were well-received. The approved black/white colourway seen on so many high demand shoes remains, with the upper complete with black laces, all atop a white Boost midsole.

    You can get yours here on Saints.

  • Kith x NAKED x adidas CS2

    First look

    The NMD City Sock - better known as the CS2 - is going to be the model adidas Consortium will collaborate on with streetwear giant Kith and Denmark's women-specialty store NAKED. One look and one can tell the absence of any form of lacing system, which instead if replaced by the sock-like silhouette, in which the Primeknit wraps around the foot for the perfect fit. Right down the centre of the shoe is a leather stripe featuring reflective three stripe branding. The rubber blocks found on the midsole have also been removed for an updated design. Kith and NAKED branding can also be found on the tongue tag and the heel tab. Completing the collab is a gum outsole.

    Both the "Sandstone" and "Pink Melange" CS2 are available on the site now.

    First look

    The latest member of the adidas Consortium will go to the way of Swiss retailer Titolo, who will release its variation of the adidas NMD_XR1 Trail.

Both Titolo and adidas branding can be found on the latter.

    The notable difference in colour of the “Celestial” colorway will be its translucent glacier-blue outsoles, completes the shoes like the snow-capped mountains in Switzerland reflected in the pellucid waters.

  • United Arrows & Sons x adidas NMD City Sock "MIKITYPE"

    First look

    Japanese label United Arrows & Sons have joined forces with adidas while working closely with up & coming typographer MIKITYPE to release an exclusive collection of both footwear and apparel. 

    Tokyo-based calligrapher and type designer MIKITYPE has left his mark on the upcoming adidas x United Arrows and Sons NMD City Sock with a customised typeface. The collaboration is given the all black treatment with the exception of the midsole and outsole, which is in white and gum respectively. The words adidas Originals and United Arrow & Sons can be seen in Katakana at 4 places: the midsole block (which says adidas Originals), the midfoot patch on the medial side, the heel tab and the insoles.

    The collection has been scheduled for a March 18 pre-release presumably to be at United Arrows & Sons stores, followed by a global launch at select adidas retailers on March 25. You can see the apparel collection and some on feet shots on United Arrows & Sons website here.

  • Stella McCartney for adidas x Parley Ultra Boost Uncaged

    First look

    The adidas x Parley Uncaged Ultra Boosts, first released back in 2015 at the United Nations headquarters, are made with recycled ocean plastic as part of adidas' corporate social responsibility strategy. The Parley collaboration has since have received a new look as the German giant partners up with Stella McCartney.

    These adidas by Stella McCartney Ultra Boost sneakers combine comfort from the boost™ and Primeknit, with yarn spun from reclaimed and recycled ocean waste. A free-floating arch leaves the boost™ in the middle of the shoe exposed slightly, and this colourway is similar to the popular Cream Ultra Boosts, albeit a few shades lighter. The shoe is complete with branding on the tongue tag, and a burgundy heel tab for a pop of colour. Parley branding can be found on the insoles, which are the environmental group's signature colour, a pastel blue.

    You can get yours here directly at adidas, or you can head over here to view our Ultra Boost collection.
