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 adidas ultra boost women 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.
While most of this year’s Black History Month creations have come out of Nike’s camp so far, adidas is ready to toss their hat into the ring by way of an adidas ultra boost uncaged. Devoid of the influential silhouette’s customary midfoot striping, this model comes dressed in an off white hue with varying colors on its medial eyelets ranging from black, to purple, to red. However, the most intriguing part of this new Ultra Boost iteration is its “CBC” logo on its custom insoles anchored by a bright orange basketball with “Celebrate Black Culture” surrounding the emblem in bold purple lettering. While this model is indeed designed for BHM, its inspiration is kept more subtle than most, as it appears to be just another general release UB from the outside.
Although adidas Originals has been focusing most of their attention on shoes that are slightly newer in their life cycle, the ever-popular adidas nmd r1 mens sale is still chugging along unimpeded, and now it’s appeared in a new makeup that offers glossy pops of metallic gold. A likely homage to the most iconic colorway of the adidas Superstar, these adidas NMDs feature a white base with black accents on the midfoot’s three stripe graphic, the heel piece/tab, and the tongue badge. Bold hits of metallic gold then grace the rear bumper, as well as providing further embellishment on both the tongue and the front bumper. A full-length white Boost footbed provides signature cushioning, while a black outsole finalizes the look.
Although adidas outlet has mostly been celebrating 30 years of Torsion tech by re-releasing classic models, they’re looking towards the timeless support system’s future as well, and aiming to begin its next chapter in earnest with a new silhouette dubbed the Torsion X. At first glance, the Torsion X certainly cuts a bold figure, one that draws bits and pieces from other Three Stripes lifestyle favorites. Both the tongue and the circular suede eyestays are reminiscent of Kanye West‘s adidas Yeezy 500, while the plastic tube that wraps around the asymmetrical lacing system and heel gives off serious adidas Ozweego vibes. The rest of the upper features a layered combo of synthetics and suede, while a bold branded hit appears on the tongue.
