Ah, the Ultra Boost. Season after season, it continues to be one of the KicksOneTwo staff’s favorite shoes because of its comfort and style. We wear Ultra Boosts year round, and are of the opinion that there’s never a bad time to throw a pair on.
So obviously we’re gassed about the Ultra Boost Mid, the newest model in the Ultra Boost family, first introduced by Ronnie Fieg as part of the Kith Aspen capsule collection.
The Ultra Boost Mid is similar to the regular Ultra Boosts in that it features a Primeknit upper with a full-length Boost midsole, but where it’s different is its high, sock-like collar that comes up around the ankle. Kith introduced the first two colors to the world, the multicolor pair pictured above and an all-white friends and family pair … but now Adidas has leaked the first images of the Ultra Boost ATR mid, a heavy-duty, weather-resistant version of the same shoe.
These are bound to be a hit in 2017. How could they not be? They’re the natural progression of the original Ultra Boost. Sure, runners probably aren’t going to want to pound the pavement in these, but that’s cool: they’re for fashion. The high collar gives them a unique look reminiscent of Nike Free Mercurials or Footscapes, and Boost is still the best cushioning technology on the market.
So keep your ears to the street for info on Ultra Boost Mid release dates. These are a shoe that you don’t want to miss.
