For the collection, the brands decided to use Missoni’s trademark Space-dying and flame stitching technique on items such as Ultra Boosts, sweatshirts, T-shirts and running shorts.

The three sneakers have Adidas Boost technology in the midsole of the shoe for extra support and have a textured Primeknit upper made from moisture-wicking Clima yarns. The shoes come in both men’s and women’s sizes, so all runners can enjoy.
