UPDATE (August 16, 2018): According to Yeezy Mafia, the updated design for the BAPE x adidas UltraBOOST will now include white stripes instead of the gold stripes initially teased. In addition, the targeted release date for the sneakers will be February 2, 2019 as a Super Bowl Exclusive.
UPDATE: Soon after sneaker leaker py_rates revealed the rumored BAPE x adidas UltraBoost collab for 2019 with a mockup design, other sneaker leaker account Yeezy Mafia responded with more info and a supposed more “accurate” design of their own. In the new image, we see that the potential model will actually be heavier in black tones with what looks to be gold three-stripe branding on the sides. The Mafia also adds that there will be cleats included in the collab pack that’s called “USA.” The month YM targets is January of 2019 with the shoes (possibly pointing to the UltraBoost) retailing at $200 USD. See it below:
Following the commemorative World Cup 2018 gear, BAPE and adidas may be at it again; the frequent collaborators are rumored to be reuniting for a sneaker as hyped as this year’s reworked Dame 4. Naturally, no official word has emerged yet, but veteran sneaker leaker @py_rates has revealed that both parties will reunite on a low-cut UltraBOOST to be issued next year. Considering that there’s little-to-nothing known about the design yet, it’s anyone’s guess what the creation will look like, but it’s fair to assume that there will be camouflage and plenty of it.
Check out @py_rates’ mock-up of the purported silhouette above and let us know: is this collab a definite cop?
