Ronnie Fieg’s Adidas Ultra Boost Mid collaboration will be released on Friday, and it’s already being listed for as much as $1,500 on eBay. The buzz for the sneakers is so high that a sneakerhead took it upon himself to create a DIY hack that mimics the look of the multicolored kicks.
The image originated on Reddit, where the user flattened a “Triple White” Adidas Ultra Boost with his foot while wearing a sock reminiscent of the colors seen on Fieg’s collab. While this probably won’t be enough to satisfy the cravings of many sneakerheads, it’s a humorous take on what is shaping up to be one of the holiday season’s most anticipated releases.
The Ronnie Fieg x Adidas Ultra Boost will arrive at Kith stores on Friday alongside Fieg’s Response Trail Boost collaboration. An online release will take place Friday at midnight, while a global release will follow at Adidas Consortium retailers on Dec. 31.
