adidas continues to roll out new twists of some of the company’s more intriguing silhouettes, the latest of which is a duo of contrasting Sobakov BOOST silhouettes. The tweaked soccer sneaker is offered in light- and dark-hued iterations, complete with comfy BOOST midsoles for maximum comfort.
An asymmetric knit upper adds both visual interest and heightened breathability, with a midsole that mixes soft BOOST at the heel with textured rubber towards the toe. The result is a hybrid of contemporary design and heritage inspiration, reinforced by the striking “Core Black”/”Gold Metallic”/”Carbon” colorway that juxtaposes an all-black look with unmissable gold on the leather Three Stripes branding.
Meanwhile, the “Chalk White”/”Core Black”/”Craft Ochre” variant delivers a more classic look in comparison to its high-contrast counterpart. Taking cues from classic adidas soccer styles, this understated option sports black Three Stripes to match the sockliner and heel panel, yielding a neutral counterpoint to the gum-hued outsole.
Both silhouettes hit adidas’ website and stockists on May 11.
