adidas consortium continues its 2016 world tour with a liaison with Berlin-rooted sneaker boutique Solebox.
Putting their own spin on this new Ultraboost version coming without the TPU cage, Solebox took their color-inspiration from the coat of arms of their district, the Berlin Tiergarten. The upper of the Ultraboost UNCGD comes in an exciting material mix of wool and suede leather in modest grey color, whereas the outsole contrasts in a signal red that boosts us right into the streets of Berlin.
adidas Consortium Tour: UltraBOOST UNCAGED Solebox
Already on its third stop, the Consortium Tour is now up for a quick visit to the good folks over at Solebox in Berlin. The internationally renowned boutique store is one of Europe’s premier addresses when it comes to the most sought-after releases. With more than a decade of being at the forefront of footwear culture to its name, Solebox is well-versed in many categories – from timeless/classic all the way to technical/progressive.
In a city that itself breathes variety like no other, they didn’t have to go far seeking creative input for a collaboration that fuses Berlin’s multifaceted DNA with this state-of-the-art functional shoe. Staying true to its roots, Solebox chose their home district’s coat-of-arms as an inspiration for their UltraBOOST execution, designed by Hikmet Sugoer for Solebox. Different shades of grey are complimented by the uber-comfortable white midsole. A splash of green and the red outsole contrast the gritty metropolitan color-scheme of its smooth wool and suede upper. As an interesting twist, this UltraBOOST comes without the TPU cage, offering extra freedom while enhancing the shoe's already clean aesthetic. A nod to the dauntless streets, the crisp Solebox debossing on the shoe's heel cup serves as a distinct identifier for the partnership. It adds another layer to Solebox' straight-forward design and ensures you rep their set in proper style. The latest addition to the BOOST family is rounded off by a subtle adidas Consortium Tour branding on the tongue labels, an all-over Consortium insole print, as well as three sets of matching laces.
As the old saying goes, Berlin is ever changing. That is why combining comfort with functionality while paying dues to its history, the Solebox UltraBOOST UNCAGED is the perfect sneaker for life in a city so diverse. A few train stops make the difference between modern, modest and mean streets – and you might want to be prepared for that.
