adidas has had a phenomenal year, and the German sportswear brand is arguably killing the footwear game. But even though the year is ending, it looks as if we’re going to have a lot more to look forward to in the new year. We already have a few sneak peeks on what’s coming up, and it seems like the Three Stripes is seriously ramping up its effort with the popular UltraBOOST design. The fan-favorite just saw a new 3.0 iteration release, and the beginning of 2017 will see a ton of new colorways release. Aside from the 3.0, the silhouette has been revamped with a mid-top design as well. The power of BOOST technology has definitely become an adidas pillar, with most of the brand’s more popular styles featuring the comfortable sole. Aside from the UltraBOOST, we’re looking forward to more YEEZY releases and the EQT Support 93/17. Below you’ll find a slew of other BOOST releases, but let us know in the comments which one you’re most excited for.
The popular UltraBOOST silhouette is getting upgraded. With premium accents, the running shoe goes lifestyle with leather and suede additions. Unveiled in a gray colorway with a metallic silver cage, the shoe will be a popular style when it releases early 2017. Check out more here.
If premium upgrades on your UltraBOOST aren’t what you’re looking for, then you’ll be pleased to see that the recently-released and updated UltraBOOST 3.0 is coming out in a myriad of other colorways in early 2017. With a new knitted upper and a translucent cage, the popular adidas runner will be back with its signature BOOST sole and heel cage, and made available in four shades that will complement any sneaker rotation. This pack is rumored to drop on January 1 while we’re still waiting on a release date for the “Oreo” colorways.
Not only is the Three Stripes rolling out a ton of UltraBOOST colorways, the German sportswear brand is seriously changing up the game with a new mid-top silhouette for the popular shoe. First debuted with Ronnie Fieg’s KITH UltraBOOST Mid, the silhouette will drop in a more general release sometime next year. The first colorway to surface is a simple marled gray with embossed Three Stripes branding. See more pictures here.
As mentioned, the KITH x adidas Consortium collaboration was the first to unveil the mid-top silhouette of the popular UltraBOOST shoe. It saw an extremely limited release earlier this month, but you’ll have another chance to cop on the last day of the year. It will be available at retailers such as Solebox, No.42 Paris and No.74 Berlin so get your credit cards ready.
After seeing a small release at select retailers this year, adidas is looking to drop the ACE16+ UltraBOOST in a wider release. The sock silhouette features a streamlined slip-on design, with bold Three Stripes branding on the front. All set atop an UltraBOOST sole, the shoe will be available in a “Triple Black” colorway featuring the popular blacked-out BOOST sole.
In addition to the “Triple Black” version, the ACE16+ will also release in a “Red Limit” iteration. Featuring a futuristic sock-like slip-on design, the shoe boasts bold red accents in the sole and pull tabs, all set atop a sleek black upper. Rounding off the style is a crisp white sole.
No adidas release list would be complete without the inclusion of the YEEZY BOOST. Following the release of the V2 style in a myriad of colorways, the shoe will be seeing a pure white release in the new year. Leaked images show both adult and infant sizing, so that both you and the kids around you can rock some of the most hyped footwear. Head over to Sneaker Prophet’s Instagram for more images.
We first saw a cleat version of a YEEZY shoe earlier this year with the 350 in “Turtle Dove.” Now, another YEEZY silhouette is releasing as cleats, this time in 750. The high-top shoe has been matched with pitch black suede and an off-white colorway, and has been seen on NFL players such as Von Miller. See more pictures of the Black colorway here.
adidas Originals unveiled a new EQT Support 93/17 this month, outfitted with BOOST technology. It features premium nubuck panels and a woven knit upper, but the biggest highlight is its OrthoLite® sockliner and TPU support panel. See more photos here.
adidas continues to incorporate BOOST technology onto silhouettes old and new. Releasing next year is the revamped PureBOOST Primeknit, which features a new Primeknit upper and slip-on design. The style also boasts a new lacing system and a thicker BOOST sole. Preview the silhouette above and check out more images at Sneaker Prophet’s Instagram.
