Fireworks are a beloved part of Japanese culture, and to many sneakers are too, so adidas has combined the country’s affection for pyrotechnics and footwear to create a brand-new Ultra Boost 4.0 “Japan” with explosive detailing. The shoe’s clean white Primeknit upper offers a stark background to the bold multi-color firework graphic that graces each foot’s lateral heel, exploding all the way up to the collar and trickling down over the translucent heel clip. Another firework graphic is present on the medial midfoot as well, erupting behind the white leather midfoot cage. Finishing touches of country-specific style are provided by Japanese flag graphics on each tongue and a red Tokyo hit on the insole. A signature white Ultra Boost midsole and Continental rubber outsole then complete the look. These unbelievable UBs will release exclusively at Japanese retailers like atmos on August 30th, so check ’em out here in the meantime.
