Inspired by animated television show character Inspector Gadget, the collaborative model was created to encourage wearers to remain curious in life, and to go out into world and explore. Taking “exaggerated functionality” as the theme, the sneaker utilizes components often found in ULTRAOLIVE’s repertoire, as features like the cinched bungee laces, removable wallet, and reflective material enhance the shoe’s versatility. On top of the New Balance 990‘s ENCAP midsole, the “ULTRA990” also sees a premium suede upper matched with an oversized hole mesh material for maximum breathability.
Look for these to drop on ULTRAOLIVE’s web store on February 27 at 1pm EST for a price of $199 USD.
