adidas Salute a Classic With the UltraBOOST 1.0 DNA 'Legacy Indigo'
Release: 9 December 2021

Style Code: GZ0448

From the OG UltraBOOST in 2015 to the new-jack UltraBOOST 22, adidas' flagship UltraBOOST line has seen a lot of evolution in its soon-to-be-7-year tenure. Originally designed strictly as a performance silhouette, the UltraBOOST took on a second life as a casual favourite thanks to its extreme comfort and a timely co-sign from one Kanye West. As UB technology grows and changes, the original model has been repurposed as a casual silhouette dubbed the UltraBOOST 1.0 DNA, a heritage style that's now set to release in a 'Legacy Indigo' colourway.

If you're a longtime BOOST aficionado, the name should instantly give away the shoe's inspiration: it's a nod to the UltraBOOST's very first colourway. This acknowledgement is provided via the heel clip, which is dressed in an ultra-dark purplish-blue shade and embossed with metallic gold and silver text. Where the OG UB used black across the rest of its Primeknit upper, the 'Legacy Indigo' swaps to an airy 'Cloud White' shade and works sustainable PRIMEBLUE material into its build as well. A two-tone midfoot cage, signature white BOOST midsole and upgraded Continental rubber outsole with discs instead of nubs (one of the DNA's most notable alterations) complete the look.

If you're looking to BOOST your adidas collection with the 'Legacy Indigo', you'll be able to do so on December 9 when it hits the adidas web store for $190.
