Swimming GOAT Katie Ledecky Splashes Out the adidas UltraBOOST
Release: 1 November 2021

American swimming great Katie Ledecky is considered one of the GOATs in the pool, dominating just about every event and stroke where H20 is involved. After cleaning up at the Tokyo Olympics, Ledecky is getting one more piece for the trophy cabinet that her friendly Australian rival, Ariarne Titmus, isn’t: an exclusive adidas UltraBOOST.

The UltraBOOST has long been an athleisure favourite; this sort of easy-to-wear sneaker has been poolside numerous times. Primeknit uppers aren’t just stretchy, they can be rendered in multiple colours. As are the BOOST midsoles it sits on. So, it makes perfect sense that a legendary swimmer opts for a predominately pool blue colourway that washes over contrasting white and clear accents. The black rubber outsole is sourced via tire specialists Continental, so there won’t be any accidental slipping.

The insoles of these UBs read a mantra that certainly repeats in Ledecky’s head: ‘Lead, Keep The Lead’. And this notion is something she did at Tokyo, taking home two gold and silver medals apiece. This glistening gilt achievement is commemorated via the golden Torsion structure on the underside of the arch.

Katie Ledecky’s special edition adidas UltraBOOST will be available from November 1 at adidas.
