First seen on the feet of @Yankeekicks earlier this year, the
The sneaker is based on the fan-favorite UltraBOOST, sporting a Primeknit upper that takes most after the second-generation pair. As a result, “Core Black” is interwoven with a “Carbon” gray knit to give the shoe’s upper some dimension and shape, becoming more apparent at the rear where you’ll find small squares of “Carbon” knit decorating the heel and collar.
Black has also been used on the heel cup where you’ll find tonal Ultra4D branding, as well as on the Three Stripe-incorporating lace cage and Primeknit tongue, which is also branded with adidas’ logo. Rounding out the pair is the signature light, oxygen, and resin-constructed 4D midsole that’s complete with a Continental outsole, both finished in “Core Black.”
Take a look at the adidas Ultra4D 5.0 “Core Black/Carbon” above. It’s set to release at stockists such as 43einhalb on December 12 for €219.95 EUR (approx. $266 USD).
