Ronnie Fieg’s streetwear label Kith is no stranger to illustrious collaborations with adidas’ Soccer division the likes of the Nemeziz Tango, and the Nemeziz Ultra Boost 17+. Now, Fieg has teamed up with Three Stripes futból once again for a USA-inspired collection consisting of a Copa 17.1 Ultra Boost and an Ace 16+ Ultra Boost. It is possible that this collection was originally supposed to be for the World Cup, but with the United States failing to qualify, the narrative has since changed.
The Copa 17.1 ushers in a metallic gold color scheme that sports red, white, and blue midfoot stripes and a stark white midsole for contrast. In 2014, Fieg dropped a similarly designed pair of ASICS GEL-Lyte IIIs that were met with immense fanfare, so it is fair to expect the same from these. On the other hand, the Ace 16+ comes with a Patriotic multi-color aesthetic that harkens back to the Ultra Boost Mid “Aspen”.
Check out a first look at both upcoming Kith x adidas Soccer “USA” selections below and stay tuned for updates and better images as they become available.
