We now have official images of the upcoming BAPE and adidas collaboration; the hype is justified. The chosen silhouette, UltraBOOST, is being repped in two sleek colourways. Let’s break them down, shall we?
Design wise, the UltraBOOST is one of adidas’ most reliable performance kicks. The two colourways on offer are elite—the signature 1ST CAMO and a black edition. Both colourways feature Primeknit uppers dressed in BAPE’s iconic camo print, three stripes on the TPU cage and gold co-branding. Our key callouts include the APE head tongue tab and murdered out BOOST midsole.
The highly-anticipated collab is expected to drop on February 2, with the UltraBOOST being part of a larger collection featuring a football jersey, helmet, ball and the adidas Adizero 5-Star cleat.
