Ronnie Fieg and Kith have certainly been busy. Following the GEL-Diablo and GEL-Lyte IIIs under Fieg’s name this week, it’s now been revealed that the retailer also has another colab in the pipeline. Leakers on Twitter disclosed that the next Kith drop would be an adidas Ace 16 + UltraBOOST, and just like the Diablo, it’s going to be super limited with less than 500 pairs slated to be up for grabs.
Drawing from a football silhouette, the Ace 16+ UltraBOOST has been re-tooled for lifestyle. Uppers have been stripped of PureControl tech that would allow feet to grip the ball, exposing the textural Primeknit beneath, and underfoot the cleats have been supplanted for an UltraBOOST midsole. As is increasingly the case with hyped drops like this, the sneakers have been leaked before adidas have distributed official information – meaning nothing about this release is confirmed.
However, if the information is correct, the Kith x adidas Ace 16 + UltraBOOST will be available on May 19.
