If you’re using adidas’ UltraBOOST Mid ATR like it was intended, streetwise colour-blocking isn’t going to do you any favours. The outdoors model is likely going to get puddle splatter and mud flecks all over it when hitting the trails. So this pair, knitted with a melange of hues, will wear well. A design that suffuses dark to light from front to back makes the shoe looks like it’s already powered through some off-road runs, meaning you won’t be precious with them when you actually step off the beaten path.
However, those looking for a pair will have to wait. The sneaker drops in September — just in time for inclement conditions.
