As the one of the first BOOST-bearing sneakers out, the UltraBOOST played a big part in propelling adidas to the heights of success that they’re experiencing today.
Energy and Pure BOOST silhouettes might have preceded it, but nothing quite captured punter’s imaginations like the UltraBOOST. Its 2015 release instigated a wave of DIY customisations and an onslaught of crazy-hype collaborations, and the sneaker landscape hasn’t been the same since.
There have been a handful of permutations of the runner. Team Trefoil have churned out a Stella McCartney line, the Uncaged division, an EQT variant with Pusha T and an intriguing Copa Mundial update. All of them have been wins in our book, and to celebrate all that the UltraBOOST has done (and as an excuse to spend the day lurking Instagram) we’ve compiled an on-feet gallery of the very best shots that IG has to offer.
