The adidas Ultraboost was originally released in 2015 and since then, it has gone through several versions. The Ultraboost was originally released as a performance runner but has been adopted by many as a lifestyle sneaker. The original 1.0 knit and tooling is still a cult favourite that adidas has been bringing back in moderation.
Nice Kicks has teamed with adidas Consortium and Woodstock to tell their story using the Ultraboost as its canvas. The adidas Ultraboost “Woodstock” is inspired by the hippie movement which took place at the Woodstock music festival where people would travel from all over the world to celebrate love, peace, and music. With Woodstock, this movement not only defined its generation, but it has become a lifestyle for others to follow. The shoe pays homage to the hippie movement and reminds everyone the original message of coming together in hopes for a brighter and more peaceful future. The design incorporates a traditional spiral tie-dye upper with semi-translucent cages to create the psychedelic theme that represented the hippie movement. Lastly, we finished off the shoe with a gum outsole as a subtle reference our first consortium project on the NMD R1.
adidas Consortium Nice Kicks UltraBOOST has a fully knitted upper that has a sublimation print of a traditional tie-dye pattern. The sneaker also has a semi-translucent cage and heel clip to add to the uniqueness of the sneaker’s story. The shoe features white boost midsoles with red torsion plates and finishes off with a gum rubber outsole. Nice Kicks and Woodstock branding can be found on the tongue of both shoes as well as the graphic on the footbed. Finally, the sneaker is completed with the signature Consortium eyelets.
The adidas Consortium Ultraboost 1.0 x Nice Kicks launches at limitEDitions WMNS on Friday 1st November.
