Primeknit, which debuted on the adiZero Prime back in 2012, sits atop the Ultra Boost‘s most standard sole unit on The Three Stripes’ newest model; some of its yarn has been created alongside Parley for the Oceans from upcycled plastic found near remote islands, beaches, coastal communities, and shorelines.Both "Active Red" and "Core Black" launch colorways highlight the shoe’s breathability, with the latter resembling previous knit footwear from Y-3. Profile 3-Stripes deviate from their respective pairs’ titular hue and complement "2020" text on the tongue – a nod to the new silhouette’s eight-year-old muse. Underfoot, Boost cushioning sits in-between a plastic mold at the heel and "Core Black", Continental™ Rubber tread.
While no longer at the top of the sneaker food chain, the adidas Ultra Boost continues to emerge in impressive options for those seeking to be comfortable in style. Case in point: a new "Cloud White/Royal Blue/Scarlet" pair. Primeknit uppers set the stage for their eye-catching accents in "Cloud White"; plastic profile cages and heel molds follow suit. Branding on the tongue, lateral heel, and sidewalls interrupt the tonal scheme with either a shimmering gold or adidas Americana-reminiscent "Royal Blue" and "Scarlet" arrangement. Elsewhere, sockliners indulge in the patriotic color scheme, going as far as featuring star graphics. Underfoot, Boost cushioning forgoes any festive hues with its "Core Black" makeup.
