Each makeup wears the programs’ respective color palettes predominately on the breathable Primeknit upper, while contrasting accents cover the Three Stripes branding on the lacing cage. The shoe’s standout feature is the interchangeable tongue tab that features an image of the school’s mascots. Additional details include a matching heel counter that helps secure the wearer’s foot. The look finishes off with full-length Boost midsoles for comfort and Continental rubber outsoles.

The entire Adidas Ultra Boost “College” pack is releasing at Adidas.com and at select Adidas retailers starting on Sept. 4. Each style will retail for $180.
