Who would have thought that a named birthed from Niketalk defining a garbage sneaker fanatic would take part in one of the best adidas collaborations of the winter 2015? Probably nobody. The Hypebeast x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost ‘Uncaged’ has one small alteration to it, but that changes the shoe from performance to streetwear in an instant. All that’s gone is the support cage on the midfoot and an addition of a premium leather insole. Primeknit takes center stage here and that’s all the shoe really needs.
The Hypebeast x adidas Consortium Ultra Boost ‘Uncaged’ releases this Friday, Dec. 18 for a retail price of $180 at Sneaker Politics and other Consortium accounts. An added perk of buying the first pair of these stripped down Boosts is a chip that opens a microsite with exclusive content for buyers. I hope that content involves discounts.
