adidas Consortium launches its UltraBOOST Collective 2018 series with an inaugural model designed in partnership with A Kind of Guise. For this collaborative UltraBOOST, the Munich-based label looked to the lush lemon groves and Mediterranean coastline, creating a beige Primeknit upper with a raised, ripple-wave pattern and a marbled, yellow outsole.
The AKOG x adidas UltraBOOST features an uncaged upper with wide, wraparound lacing, a sock-like collar and rich leather detailing at the tongue and heel. A white full-length BOOST sole offers high-performance cushioning, while a bright yellow, marbled, terrazzo-inspired outsole lifts the palette with some zest.
The A Kind of Guise x adidas UltraBOOST will release on July 28 in-store and online at AKOG’s web store for €220 EUR ($256 USD), followed with a wider adidas Consortium release on August 25.
