The adidas Ultra Boost made such an impact in 2015 that it won our #KofBestOf2015 Award for best new sneaker of the year. Towards the end of the year we saw a new version of the elite runner from adidas that had not been released before and it caught lots of attention.
I’m talking about the Hypebeast x adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged. This collaboration with Hypebeast took the popular Ultra Boost and “uncaged” it for the first time meaning that the plastic support/three stripes that we usually see on the side panels were completely removed. Now for 2016 it appears that we may be seeing more of this uncaged look on this adidas Ultra Boost. Here is a first look at a new grey colorway of the shoe that also a features a new sock-like ankle for a more snug fit.
No release date exists yet for this new uncaged adidas Ultra Boost but we’ll get you more information once it becomes available.
I’m not sure if I like the “uncaged” look on the adidas Ultra Boost. I haven’t seen these in person yet, but from looking at images I like the original caged look better.
