The Ultraboost has become one of the most sought after, and iconic kicks in the adidas off-court line-up. Classics like the shell toe’s and NMD’s, the Ultra Boost has quickly evolved into one of the most comfortable, good-looking, and hyped up sneakers in the past decade. Although they don’t have the hype they did when they released four years ago, the adidas Ultra Boost 5.0 will be something to catch your eyes.
Back when Kanye West inked a deal with adidas in November of 2013, we’ve seen their lifestyle and running line-ups be heavily inspired by Yeezy himself. The original Ultra Boost 1.0 was released back in the Winter of 2015, right after Kanye was seen rocking a ‘Triple White’ colorway of adidas’ then new silhouette. Since then, the shoes still draw lots of attention to its phenomenal BOOST cushioning, and striking primeknit upper.
The adidas Ultra Boost 5.0 has finally surfaced. After the 1.0 to 4.0, we didn’t see much aesthetic or silhouette change. Apart from the mid-foot counter changing to be translucent, and the primeknit pattern changing, we haven’t seen much change since the 1.0. The Ultra Boost 5.0 seems to bring in a heavy aesthetic change, changing the design of the upper, mid-foot counter, and adding in new stabilization features.
As shown below we have a few different colorways that have surfaced of the newest adidas Ultra Boost silhouette. The overall technological aspects of the sneakers haven’t seemed to change much, but at last we get a new aesthetic look. The Ultra Boost 5.0 seems to add additional performance features, including the heel’s stabilization counter, and potential fuse/synthetic overlays covering up the high-wear areas of the sneakers. The BOOST foam also seems to receive an increase in thickness, so cushioning should be out of this world.
All in all, I think we can conclude the adidas Ultra Boost 5.0 seems to bring in more of a performance look. Will you be grabbing these kicks if released? Let us know in the comment section. Currently no release information has surfaced for these guys, but we’ll keep you all in the loop. The original releases were $180 USD for the standard colorways/features. You can expect a price tag around $180 bucks, and a potential release sometime this Winter, just like the Ultra Boost 4.0 around February of 2019.
