Wish List: Adidas Ultra Boost Collection w/ Stella McCartney
February 2015 found adidas following up the Kanye Boost release with the news that their flagship Boost-cushioned running shoe, the Ultra Boost, would be the foundation for the Ultra Boost Collective.
The goal of the Ultra Boost Collective seems to shift towards embracing both a high-performance sneaker and a fashion staple, featuring creative collaborative designs by the likes of Stella McCartney, Kris Van Assche, kolor’s Junichi Abe, and adidas Creative Directors Dirk Schönberger & James Carnes.
Kicking off the collective is the just-unveiled silhouette by none other than Stella McCartney. Already a long-time collaborator with adidas, McCartney restructures the upper of the Ultra Boost and opts for a black/smoked pink/eggshell color palette paired with mesh side panels and striped detailing on the toes and heels.
