Although the adidas UltraBOOST 21 has reverted to focusing on performance-running, the Three Stripes hasn’t forgotten about the UltraBOOST line’s casual appeal. To this end, it’s brought lifestyle-appropriate materials and themes to the various iterations from the series, with the latest bringing the ZX 9000‘s original “Mint/Scarlet” colorway.
Another tally in the year-long celebration of the Torsion-backed running collection, the forthcoming UltraBOOST 1.0 delivers what’s widely-considered the best Primeknit pattern and overall shape in a heritage-inspired arrangement. Shades of the aforementioned green tone animate much of the textile upper, while white takes over the profile cages and heel molding. Branding on the lateral heel and tongue and 3-Stripes on the side walls join the collar lining in delivering stark red contrast to the spring-ready pair. Underfoot, BOOST-cushioning mimics the slightly-yellowed tooling found on the ZX 9000. Torsion bars and reflective heel accents also appear on the modern-day running sneaker.
Enjoy images of the ZX-informed UltraBOOST 1.0 ahead, and anticipate pairs arriving to select stockists on April 8th.
