Palace Are Shining a Sustainable Spotlight on the adidas UltraBOOST 21Release: 15 October 2021
When Palace and adidas get together you can expect cheek, irreverence and a humorous marketing campaign. That's been the case since the two first joined forces for a Pro Trainer collaboration in 2015, and it's still the case in 2021 as Palace takes a crack at adidas' UltraBOOST 21.
Palace's first go-around with the UltraBOOST line, this duo of UltraBOOST 21s (black and white, both with colourful plaid patterns) is geared towards sustainability. Embellished with Palace's P-cycle logo on the tongue, each features a knit upper made of 81% Primeblue, a high-performance recycled yarn. This Primeblue material is itself made of at least 50% Parley ocean plastic, which is waste material intercepted from beaches, shorelines, coastal communities and islands, ensuring it doesn't clog the world's oceans. Down below sits a beefy BOOST midsole with a geometric rocker for support and comfort. They're not pictured here, but the collection also includes a running cap and running socks, made of 68% and 97% recycled material, respectively.
Palace proponents and adidas aficionados will be able to score these sustainability-minded sneakers when they release via the Palace webstore on October 15 as part of the first drop from the brand's Winter 2021 collection.
