Adidas turned heads when it unveiled its Ultra Boost running silhouette in February of last year, and its latest collaboration with Porsche Design Sport is sure to garner lots of attention, too.
The brand unveiled today the limited-edition Porsche Design Sport by Adidas Ultra Boost, which arrives April 15. The shoe will be available at select Porsche Design Sport by Adidas retailers, adidas.com and porsche-design.com, retailing for $350.
“We worked with Porsche Design to provide a new and exciting iteration, injecting the premium sophistication that the brand is renowned for and illustrating the transitional move from highly active performance to premium sportswear,” said Jacques Chassaing, senior design director of Porsche Design Sport by Adidas, in a statement issued today.
“We fused proven Adidas technologies with elevated design elements, such as distinctive luxury leather and subtle Porsche Design branding, creating a truly standout shoe designed for the sophisticated, style-led consumer of Porsche Design Sport by Adidas.”
The spring ’16 drop of the acclaimed running shoe, both functional and fashionable, comes dressed in all white, using premium leather accents to complement Adidas’ renowned Primeknit material in the forefoot and midfoot areas of the upper, which also boasts breathable mesh.
The shoe also uses the brand’s celebrated Boost cushioning technology in its midsole, known for its energy-returning properties, and is completed with a sturdy rubber outsole that utilizes Stretchweb technology and Adidas’ Torsion System for greater stability and grip.
