Adidas x Hypebeast
Adidas Consortium originally teamed up with lifestyle publication HYPEBEAST on a custom pair of uncaged Ultra Boosts. The sneaker comes equipped with a Prime-knit toe box, an Ultra Boost sole with a silver heel insert on the inside, a leather insole adorned with both Ultra Boost and HYPEBEAST debossing, a white heel cup stabilizer, and even a NFC chip on the tongue that will give you access to an accompanying micro-site. The name of the model itself, meanwhile, comes from the removal of the Three Stripes’ signature cage along the upper. The result is a collaborative sneaker which could almost pass as an entirely new silhouette. Originally retailing for $200, the adidas Consortium x HYPEBEAST Ultra Boost “Uncaged” was made exclusively available to adidas consortium accounts world-wide on December 18, 2015.
