The adidas Ultra Boost is certainly no stranger to celebratory iterations, especially when it comes to Chinese New Year traditions. And while last year saw two simplistic renditions released to the public through a black/red makeover and specially variation crafted by world renowned chef Eddie Huang, this brand new design takes its Eastern decor to another level. Primeknit constructions see through to a full lighter grey upper, and are paired with translucent mid-foot cages and heel molds that give this OG model a clean canvas for its Chinese-themed accents to do most of the heavy lifting. Vibrant floral graphics that you may traditionally see on Cheongsams are printed gracefully towards the rear portions and bleed into the Boost cushioning where they eventually come to a halt at the mid-foot, leaving the fierce embroidered tiger stitched atop the toe box to enjoy its own moment in the spotlight. For those looking to add some new footwear to coincide with the upcoming Year of the Rat festivities can expect these to drop on December 15th for $180 USD at select Three Stripes retailers.
