As one of Adidas’ most popular franchises, the Ultra Boost has seen dozens of tweaks and updates since its 2015 debut, yet Canadian retailer Haven managed to deliver a number of firsts with its new Consortium collaboration.
With inspiration rooted in Vancouver’s dark rain clouds, Haven gave the runner an all-black Primeknit makeover that extends to its Boost cushioning — a first for an Ultra Boost collab. Also unique to this special makeup is its uncaged construction, which is accented with rubberized and reflective overlays. Elsewhere, the design features dual-branding on a leather tongue and reflective laces.
“Providing the highest quality products and service has always been part of our DNA. The Haven x Ultra Boost represents our efforts to embody the pinnacle of what can be achieved,” said Haven in a press release.
The sneaker retails for $200 and will arrive exclusively at Haven’s Toronto and Vancouver locations in limited quantities April 1; it will also be available online at havenshop.com. That launch will be followed by a wider release at Adidas Consortium locations on April 8.
